The actress, who will soon be hosting ‘Love Island’ season 4, made $2.2 million from ‘Modern Family’ season 10
“Love Island” is back for its eighth installment, bringing with it a new batch of singletons. The sizzling summer series is full of dating, romance, drama, serious challenges and partner swapping. The show’s new season will be hosted by Modern Family alumnus Sarah Hyland.
The show’s original synopsis reads: “During their stay, temptations will increase and drama will ensue as the islanders are forced to choose between staying with their current partners or ‘repairing’ with someone else. Islanders will also be there for the grace of viewers at home, who will vote on who gets another shot at love and who leaves the mansion heartbroken and empty-handed.”
Who is Sarah Hyland?
American actress and singer was born in Manhattan, New York. Hyland has starred since her first role as Howard Stern’s daughter in the film Private Parts in 1997. She has portrayed roles such as Molly in the 1999 TV movie Annie and Maddie Healy in Lipstick Jungle on NBC. In 2006, she also appeared on Broadway as a young Jacqueline Bouvier in Gray Gardens.
In 2011, Hyland starred in the Disney Channel film Geek Charming. She also debuted the single “Met At a Party” with Jordan McGraw in 2019. It was released on August 9, 2019 via Republic Records. In 2019, Hyland partnered with Olay for a skin product campaign. In December 2020, she appeared with Joe Keery in a Taco Bell commercial titled “The Craving.” She will be appearing as the host of the fourth season of “Love Island”.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the ‘Modern Family’ star is worth $14 million. It’s no surprise that most of Hyland’s net worth comes from 11 seasons of Modern Family. Back then, Hyland and the rest of the kids on “Modern Family” negotiated pay increases from $15,000-$25,000 to $70,000 per episode, with an additional $10,000 per season. Then in 2017, Deadline reported that her salaries for seasons 9 and 10 had increased to over $100,000 per episode. To give you an idea of what that looks like, season 10 had 22 episodes, which means Hyland made $2,200,000 this year alone.
However, the actress did not grow up rich. During her interview with Complex, she revealed, “All the kids in my elementary school thought I was super rich and would chase me around the playground asking me for money.” Speaking about her father, she said, “He had to travel across the country, to do some kind of regional theater, to put food on the table.”
While “Modern Family” was a smash hit, the actress has also made money from her other acting credits. She explained to Vanity Fair, “You’re in every home every week as that character … and then they start to really define you as that character.” She expressed her views on how she wanted to play other roles outside of the popular show, and continued, “I didn’t want to be pigeonholed.”
Though she’s been fairly stable financially for some time, the actress worries if she’ll maintain that stability forever. “My dad … always said what you want is this one show that goes on for years and gives you a steady paycheck,” she told Vogue. Despite years of steady paychecks, Hyland apparently still worries about her financial future. She admitted to Cosmopolitan, “The thing about being an actor is like, ‘Am I going to have a job tomorrow? … I will never work again. I’ll have to sell everything and live out of a shoebox.”

Hyland and his fiancé, Wells Adams, recently bought a $3.85 million Los Angeles home with a touch of urban style. It contains five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, including a large master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling. Details include hardwood floors, a quartet of fireplaces, whitewashed brick, and judicious use of LED accent lighting. The house has a motif – the chevron pattern – and it appears frequently in the ceiling, accent panels, a fireplace surround, and elsewhere.
