Male model and Hollywood actor Chris Zylka already scored some memorable roles but he might be most remembered due to his short-lived engagement to a hotel empire heiress Paris Hilton. He currently keeps starring in a TV series Dare Me and also had a past small role on 90210 remake. As of 2020, Chris Zylka’s net worth is approximately four million dollars. Check out also the wealth of Jay Alvarrez, Genevieve Morton, and Justine Musk.
Chris was born May 9, 1985 in Howland Township, Ohio to a single mother. He was admitted to University of Toledo to study art but he eventually dropped out. At the age of 19, Zylka moved to Los Angeles to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming an actor. He showed real talent but the competition is rough.
But he kept getting bigger and better roles and eventually appeared for example in 10 Things I Hate About You, The Secret Circle, and The Leftovers. He also received some high-profile modeling gigs for prestigious brands like Abercrombie & Fitch.
Chris is a handsome man with an impressie dating history. He allegedly dated actresses Lucy Hale and Phoebe Tonkin. His next girlfriend was Hanna Beth Merjos. This were quite serious between him and this dark-haired model as they got engaged after couple months of dating. However, their relationship did not last. In 2015, they called off their engagement and broke up.
But charming male model did not stay single for long. He started dating extravagant star Paris Hilton in 2016. This romance was closely followed by media and when Chris proposed in upscale ski resort in Aspen, Colorado, fans immediately noticed the opulent engagement ring with a huge pear-shaped diamond set in platinum. It was publicized that the ring was worth $2 million!
Some wondered how he could afford such an expensive engagement present but it was later revealed that Zylka most likely did not pay the whole price. Even the expensive ring could not save the fast-moving relationship. Zylka and his girlfriend called off the engagement in November 2018 and there is very little known about Zylka’s private life after that.

It hard to make it in Hollywood but Zylka did although he has some way to go before making it into “A” league. Still, he already apeared on numerous television shows and couple movies. All these roles added to his rising net worth.
On top of that, Chris also made nice money as a model. It is admirable, how far this boy from poor one-parent household made it. Even when the things with Paris didn’t work out, he still has a lot to be proud of.
