There seems to be differing accounts as to what his net worth is. Most of his net worth comes from television and film appearances, skateboarding, stunt work, screenplay writing, and film and television development. Margera first appeared and gained national acclaim, when he was 13 years old as a pro-skater. Also, as a teenager, Margera created and starred in the CKY (Camp Kill Yourself) video series, which showed skating, pranks, and stunts, filmed in his hometown of West Chester, Pennsylvania. The CKY video series has sold over one million DVD and VHS copies worldwide.
It was after teaming up with Jeff Tremaine, the former editor of Big Brother Magazine, that Margera gained even more popularity and national acclaim to create and appear in an MTV (Music Television) television show, Jackass, which lasted for three seasons. The combination of Margera's charismatic personality and the wildly popular and successful CKY video series became the basis for the MTV television show, Jackass, The Jackass movies, and the later MTV Viva La Bam television series. From his participation in Jackass, he went on to do many other things, which contributed to his large net worth.
He had starring roles on other television programs, like Viva La Bam, in which Margera not only starred in it, he also created, produced, and directed the hit MTV show, which ran for five seasons. The popular Viva La Bam DVDs are the fastest selling DVDs in MTV history. Other television shows that Margera was heavily involved in were Unholy Union, a nine episode mini-series; Minghags, and Haggard. Margera has also had starring roles in the Jackass movies, that had been spun off from the Jackass TV show, including the 2002 film release of Jackass: The Movie, with its lifetime gross of $64.25 million.
Then there is Jackass Number Two, with its lifetime gross of $72.8 million, which surpasses the first Jackass movie. Also, Jackass 2.5, and Jackass 3D, with its lifetime gross of $117.2 million, surpassing the first three movies; and Jackass 3.5 with a lifetime gross of $171 million, surpassing all of the Jackass movies as the most popular movie of the movie series. Margera has also appeared in other movies, such as: Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle; Haggard: The Movie; The Dudesons Movie; Bam Margera Presents: Where the #$&% Is Santa?, and The Fantasstic Whores 4.
Margera expanded into other areas as well, like radio, the music industry, video games, merchandising, and endorsements. Margera became a radio DJ when he created a weekly radio show, called Radio Bam that aired on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 28, Faction, in 2004. He has continued to be heavily involved in the music industry by directing music videos, giving music air play using his radio show Radio Bam, and his Viva La Bands CD and DVD series and tour.
He created and produced Viva La Bands, a musical DVD and CD compilation series, which has become a national music festival tour, that was designated to debut in the summer of 2006. Margera is the founder and owner of his own music label, called Filthy Note. Margera also has animated characters patterned after him and his likeness.

Margera is the main character in Activision’s Tony Hawk’s Underground video game series, which is the best selling sports video game of all time. He also appears in American Wasteland, Project 8, and Proving Ground.

As much as Margera does, as many areas of interests as he has, as many new things as he is willing to try, it's easy to understand that Bam Margera Net Worth is $45 million to $50 million.
