Simon Baker Salary: Simon Baker has certainly earned his fair share of money from "The Mentalist." In 2010, Simon Baker signed a contract that guaranteed him a producer credit and a bigger share of back-end syndication profits. In 2013, Baker was earning $350,000 per each episode of "The Mentalist". That worked out to around $8.5 million per season.
Real Estate: In 2015, it was revealed that Simon Baker had spent $6.5 million on a new property in Bondi Beach in Australia. Previously, Baker and his wife Rebecca Rigg owned a terrace in Paddington that was sold in 2007 for $3.3 million. The pair then purchased an earlier Bondi home for $2.63 million in 2014. This smaller home obviously wasn't quite luxurious enough for Baker and Rigg, as they upgraded to the aforementioned $6.5-million property just one year later.
