Over the years, the group consisting of members Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood have sold more than 80 million records worldwide. Although they disbanded in 1994, they made a comeback in 2007 with a new CD and in 2011-2012 embarked a tour with the Backstreet Boys. After so many years of music and money-making, check out how much the guys from New Kids on the Block are worth now!
5. Jonathan Knight
Estimated Net Worth: $10 Million. Jonathan Knight made the majority of his money as one of the members of New Kids on the Block. Jonathan was the first to leave the band during their 1994 tour and, although the band tried to pass it off as an injury, weeks later they admitted they were splitting up. After his departure he admitted he struggled with panic attacks after joining the group and opted to stay out of the entertainment industry when they disbanded and instead became a real estate developer in Massachusetts. Even though he stayed out of the spotlight, he did participate in the reunion and has a net worth of $10 million.
