Charles Pol Wiki

Actor and producer Charles Pol was born under the star sign of Pisces on 6th March 1979, in Farm County, Central Michigan USA. He was adopted at birth by famous Dutch-American veterinarian Jan Pol, and together with his two sisters, Dian and Kathy, grew up on the farm in Michigan. They were all eventually protagonists in the TV reality series “The Incredible Dr. Pol”. However, there’s a lot more going on with Charles, and if you want to learn all about it, stick with our review of Charles Pol’s bio, net worth, marriage, and so on.

Childhood and education

Dr. Pol and his wife Diane adopted the baby boy back in 1979 and named him Charles, and as with their other two children, they taught him to love animals and treat them with care and affection. As a matter of fact, young Charles was helping around the farm and his father’s clinic by the age of five! Apparently he was interested in helping animals from the day he could walk, and the viewers of the show which centers around the Dutch vet could recognize this genuine affection.

Of course, Charles could not stay forever on the farm, and he went to the University of Miami, from where he graduated in 2003, majoring was communications, and it seems that he had other plans in mind than to just become an heir to his father’s veterinarian clinic in Michigan.

A career in the entertainment industry

Even though he loved helping around the farm, Charles had other dreams and ambitions. After graduating from the University of Miami, he decided to move to Los Angeles. As we all know, Hollywood is the capital of the entertainment industry, and Charles was probably hoping that he would eventually find his place somewhere under the bright lights of the Hollywood sign. He started working as an inter, employed by renowned companies such as Paramount Pictures and Mirage Enterprises. At one point, Charles was even working as an intern for a true Hollywood legend – the late Sydney Pollack.

How did Charles become a producer?

In 2011, the TV reality series “The Incredible Dr. Pol” was launched by National Geographic Wild, and Charles was among the producers of the show. At the same time, he frequently appeared in the series alongside his father, Dr. Pol. After that, in 2014, Charles was co-producing the series named “Calling Dr. Pol”, and as you could guess – this show was a spin-off of “The Incredible Dr. Pol” and it lasted for three seasons, but in the meantime Charles was an executive producer of the TV series “The Legend of Sheriff Gus Skinner” in 2013.

“The Incredible Dr. Pol”

Charles’ father, Jan Pol is the central figure of the show “The Incredible Dr. Pol” – this Dutch-American veterinarian was born in Utrecht in 1942, eventually moving to the US, and he now runs a vet clinic in rural areas of Weidman, Michigan. The reality TV series follows him around as he helps animals in need, and his son Charles is almost always there to assist him. The show is now entering its 14th season, and it seems that audiences love Dr. Pol’s old-school approach to treating animals and helping them recover from injuries or disease.

What is Charles’ current net worth?

According to authoritative sources, Charles receives a salary of $20,000 from the show, and his overall net worth is over $1 million as of late 2018. Of course, his father’s show is not the only place where you could see the face of Charles Pol, as he also appeared as an actor in “Drunk & Disorderly”, a movie which was released in 2011. Together with his work as a producer on his other projects, it is no wonder that Charles can afford to lead a comfortable lifestyle.

Is Charles married?

Even though some rumors about him being gay appeared in the media, Charles dismissed all that by putting an engagement ring on the finger of his girlfriend Beth Oakes. As it turns out, he and Beth have been childhood friends, and they ‘discovered’ their romantic feelings towards each other in 2017. Their engagement was publicly announced on Twitter, and the couple has also appeared on the show of “The Incredible Dr. Pol”.

Back in 2012, Charles was involved in another romantic affair, with his girlfriend at the time called Kelly. They appeared together at a Halloween party, and a picture of the two of them went public. However, this relationship eventually broke down, and there is no record of Charles having any other girlfriend prior to Beth Oakes.

Social media presence

With his busy schedule and multiple projects, it is no wonder that Charles does not have a lot of free time for posting on social networks. However, he does have an active account on Twitter, and his profile is followed by nearly 24,000 fans. Charles frequently shares posts of his father’s official Twitter page, and this profile has around 48,400 followers.

  1. Jan-Harm Pol was born in the village Wateren, Westerveld, Drenthe but went to the University of Utrecht. And then he moved to the USA. I see his twin brother Jan Pol sometimes in village

    1. Jan Pol doesn’t have a twin. They only have the same name. They have 10+ years age difference between the two of them.

    1. No. He just helps his father as Dr Lol is up in age. However, working along side his dad for years he has picked up some knowledge about how vets works, but has never claimed to be a vet and doesn’t have the skills.

    1. Dave Johnson, your comment is cruel. Thet “embacile” has a college degree and a work history. No he is not a vet tech. He has an incredible heart and is a top notch son. Maybe he is a little nerdish, but so what.. You are missing out by not watching Dr. Pol.

      1. Amen! Well said, many ignorant people in this world and Dave Johnson is one of them! Sounds like there’s a little jealousy there. Nothing but a bully.

    2. If you are going to be critical about Charles maybe take a look at your super educated self and learn to spell big words. It’s “embecelic” . I bet Charles would know how to spell the word correctly!

      1. Imbecilic is the correct spelling. Remember when you point a finger at someone, 3 are pointing back at you. Don’t be judgmental, be supportive.

    3. I think he is very talented And smart. People have different talents and skills that they are good at. Charles happens to be better at production than Being a Vet. What’s your strengths and weaknesses?

      1. Charles Pol is only portraying a character of a bumbling clumsy idiot to provide comic relief for the show. He has created and produced the show. He also does a lot of the narration. Dean Martin was portrayed as a heavy drinker while the truth was there was tea in his glass.

        1. Kid got lucky. His dad supported him til he was 40 years old. And then he was able to ride dad’s coattails into a TV show and make a few bucks. The kid seems likeable enough, just not very smart or responsible. He’s like having a 40 year old little kid.

          1. Actually Charles was working in the entertainment field and it was Charles that put the idea and show on the air. Complete opposite of your comment. Fact checking usually pays off!

    4. what a cruel reply. You should be ashamed. If you don’t watch Dr. Pol then what are you doing on this sight. Go somewhere else!

    5. Dave Johnson you are the ignorant 1 the Pole family is clean and honorable. Your words should never go out into public. Better yet put your head in the mud maybe in one of those piles of cow done.

    6. I totally disagree! Charles Pol is an asset to the show, and the episodes he’s in are usually my favorites. I love seeing the close relationship he has with his father.

      1. Double Amen! I agree with you whole hearty. I don’t care two hoots what others say…he works on my last nerve.. simple minded idiot.

    7. Some people have to hate! Charles graduated from the University of Miami in communications and has multiple jobs!

    8. Why do you think anyone cares of the ugly comment you made? Are some how relevant That your opinion should matter. Just wondering if your of any importance. If you have nothing nice to say why say anything nobody knows you or cares. I love Dr. Pol. I feel sorry for you because your opinion is not relevant to anyone but to you.

    9. The correct spelling is imbecilic AND please remember that anytime you point a finger at someone, 3 are pointing back at you. It’s always better to be supportive than judgmental.

    10. You can feel the way you want. Your decision is your own. My personal feelings are yes Charles comes off as not able to make great life choices and a bit incompetent but, that is part of the show. The cast is asked questions the answers are cut and put together then wahala you have the short clips. As for the all so wonderful Pol family they are normal people who have normal lives. No they dont all get alone like the show projects there are very tense times. Jan has been in ethical trouble a number of times and yes there have been employees having issues with his choices. Back to Charles. He is who he is and the production does not give him the right credit to show he is anymore than comic relief. He gave up a great chance to follow his dream and was progressively working his dream. He came to join in a part of his families life and start his own new path which also included being married to his longtime friend

    11. You are disgusting AND rude. Charles Pol is obviously a nice, smart guy and very funny. He definitely adds flavor to the show!

    12. Sounds like you a jealous incompetent Lil F***.. that probably stills lives in mommy’s basement. Just because you ain’t got nothing don’t hate on other people’s accomplishments punk. Now FIGHT ME!!!!

  2. I cannot fathom why people post things that are hateful just for the sake of being hateful. Is it jealousy that the poster didn’t get the same breaks or opportunities? Bottom line if your comment does not add value only hate to the conversation, keep it to yourself.

    1. Sometimes I wonder why people can be so cruel. Was it their upbringing? Were they bullied and this is why they are the way they are now? I could almost feel sorry for them, but won’t.

  3. Charles is a college grad and helps produce the Pol show. He is not really dumb, just isn’t the genius his adoptive dad is
    To be a vet one has to be quite intelligent as the med courses are very difficult


  4. Dave Johnson: before you go labeling others as an “embocile”, try looking up the correct spelling of the word. Because you just showed yourself to be an imbecile, not just a troll. Just because he’s not as cosmopolitan or as
    well spoken as you’d like doesn’t make him stupid.

  5. If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all. Keep the Incredible Dr. Pol coming !!!

  6. Love the show. Wish I could work there in the office. Love animals with all my heart. Dr Pol and his family are great people. So is his staff.

  7. i think Charles does a good job of understanding what his on-camera role is, and keeps a second banana persona, which is what he is, since his Dad and the other vets are the stars of the show. but i think it was his original idea to make his Dad’s practice into a TV show, and his biggest contributions come from the production side of things. if you pay attention to the details, it is really a high quality, well-produced show that is very sensitive to the content. that, and Jan’s unique talents is what has allowed it to run for so many years. who would have thought that a small veterinary practice in the middle of nowhere could become a long running TV hit.

  8. The incredible Dr. pole is a wonderful family i always feel better after watching and uplifting sometimes a little sad at the sad things but that’s part of the circle of life the polls are great people wish them all the best for many years to come love you from Nebraska

  9. We enjoy dr Pol as well as Charles. He’s a caring person and love his parents very much.
    Hope the show goes on for a long time.
    Namaqua West Coast greetings
    South Africa

  10. Charles does a great job a following daddy around begging for attention while daddy does all the heavy lifting. If that was my dad I’d carry all his heavy equipment do all the heavy lifting and be at his beck and call not just stand around watching while daddy does all the work. He is just a huge teenager living off daddy’s success. Using daddy’s success to make a buck while these extra Vets work their butts off for the Pols and make peanuts. It’s sad.

    1. I agree with Susan. Charles gets in the way more than he helps. I’ve seen him do nothing constructive. He should stay off camera.

  11. This is one of those say something nice to get posted or else sites Bahahaha. Ya know where everyone has their head in the clouds. MUST be produced by Charlie Pol also . . DR POL and His Vet Staff is great but his son should really stay in the background off camera. Kinda like my mother always said small children should be seen and not heard . Well he should not be seen or heard . I’m guessing that’s why his siblings dont come around their parents. I’m on season 13 and he is worse than a sloppy toddler . Just gross. Who is that lazy and proud of it ?

  12. I love the show and the family! I think Charles is hilarious, fun loving and very caring of his family and furbabies! I don’t really understand all the negative comments. Charles seems pretty smart to me! Dr Pol and Diane as well as the staff are all great! I will watch every show and maybe even watch them two or three times! Sure beats all the trash that is normally on tv! It is a good wholesome show that has taught me alot!!

  13. Years ago on the Mickey Mouse Club, Mouseketeer leader Jimmy Dodd said that before you say something, be sure that it passes this test:
    Is it true?
    Is it kind?
    Does it really NEED to be said?

    Unless a comment satisfies all three criteria, we should not say it.
    BTW, I wish I had listened more closely and paid more attention to that advice when I was younger. We can cause others and ourselves trouble when we do not think before we speak (or post).

  14. To all of you who do not enjoy the personalities on “The Incredible
    Doctor Pol,”. I don’t quite understand why you are watching the show and criticizing the cast members. If you don’t like what you are watching, turn to another show that you do enjoy instead of continuing spend your, I assume, “valuable” time on something you don’t enjoy. It’s also questionable as to why one would then spend more time writing these posts. I for one, believe that anyone who can make such a lucrative living on doing what they enjoy, must be Very tallented! Many people who did not even finish grammar school have benefited mankind. I personally enjoyed the genius of many great commedians who did not have college degrees but added enjoyment to my life. I think that Charles Pol and all of the staff create moments of levity to a show that could become very somber due to the facts of everyday life. These people are secure in their character and values. I wish more people could be like them.

  15. Not everyone has some thing nice to say. If you don’t have any thing nice to say do not say any thing at all.

    1. Feel sorry for people who are irrelevant but think they are relevant. I love the show and everyone in it. I have much respect for yourself, hers I’m sure do as well thats one crazy irrelevant person no one knows or cares about. Much success to you and all your ventures. 👋

    2. Sorry for interruption. Am from Africa my country is known as Tanzania. Here the is disease which affect pig called African swin but our doctor says the is no medicine now i request is it true. If no who can you help me because my farmer is near to disapia.

  16. Life is too short and we only get one chance at it so why, in a world with so much negativity and bad stuff happening, would anyone wish to add more negative, nastiness to their own lives, much less the lives of others? I don’t understand and I hope I never do understand. I LOVE the show, the personalities and the animals. Charles Pol, it was a great idea and I am so glad we have the chance to enjoy such wonderful, wholesome, content. I always get so HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY when new episodes are available. Thank you to the Pol family for sharing, as well as the staff, the customers/clients, the animals and all others who are involved in the making of the show. I sure hope Dr Pol is lively and healthy for many more years to come! I think you are ALL incredible and you have added positivity to my life. 🙂

  17. Sorry for interruption. Am from Africa my country is known as Tanzania. Here the is disease which affect pig called African swin but our doctor says the is no medicine now i request is it true. If no who can you help me because my farmer is near to disapia.

  18. Please remove the first

    Denmark: We love to see Dr. Pol. The love and empathy displayed is unique. AND all the people in the gallery are wonderful straightforward people who have dedicated their lives to helping animals. Of course there is an income, and so what. We can´t see them living as counts and barons. In the early days, I was an intern at a royal court veterinarian (Smed) in Odder. It was the same. Love, big family days, mess in the corners, but the animals were treated like royalties. Hope everyone over there in the area is having a good time.

  19. I wish I had had the relationship with my parents like the Pol kids have. I had great parents but very difficult to talk to. I watch this shows reruns and don`t care. there is always something to learn. Especially how to have compassion. You naysayers need a good swift kick in the nether regions. Y ou must be so unhappy. I pity all of you. Love all the Pols and wish I could meet them. From another 78 year old from canada.

  20. I agree with all the positive posts on this forum. The negative posts about not liking the show because of Charles is your business and thats OK but most don’t think that about Charles at all . He is not as outgoing as his father in personality but only a very few people can say that they have the energy that Doc Pol has.

    I sometimes look forward to Charles appearing in the episodes because it adds a little different theme about family life in that hectic business.
    If you don’t like him and don’t watch the show because of him , you’re missing out on general education of the duties of the vet profession and the compassion they show for the animals added with a touch of common sense. All the vet shows are awesome and this one stands at the top of the list for me and that’s OK as well. I too am a 72 year old Canadian who enjoys and has learned so much about this rewarding profession by viewing Dr. Pol. Carry on with this wonderful show please.

  21. Ya know maybe if you were in a show he wouldn’t bother to watch you since you are a rude moron. Oh and Mr high I.Q IT is spelled imbecile. So it would imbecilec not whatever word that was you wrote here that made no sense. For hour information Charles is a producer of tv shows including his Father’s TV show….the Incredible Dr Pol. Now go suck lemons.

  22. I can watch the Incredible Dr.Pol reruns and they never get old.I am a Big Fan of the program and I wish he had a VET PRACTICE in our city. DR.BRENDA is so awesome, her soft voice is so calming to her CLIENTS. SHE’S A GEM. The newest VETS to the CLINIC who are fresh out of SCHOOL are also FANTASTIC. DIANE is the greatest support system for ALL THE VETS, and CHARLES is a WONDERFUL SON and HUSBAND and FATHER to his FAMILY. GOD’S BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL 🙏 THAT DR.POL WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG TIME

  23. I adore Dr Pol and only wish I had someone like him as a mentor and father. He is truly awesome. The compassion he exhibits for both animals and humans is a gift from God. I pray he will be granted many more years to come!!

  24. I always enjoy the Dr. Pol show. They’re like nice neighbors that just live in the next state. Sometimes it seems like Dr. Pol is a little hard on Charles – dumped snow in his boots when ice fishing or threw mud at him in the barnyard – but maybe that’s just the way things are. The program is always interesting & I like all the staff & how well they work together.

  25. Dave Johnson’s post was his way of getting attention and attention is exactly what he got. He knew making such a comment would receive many responses to his immature comment. I’m guessing he was that bully in school or the one who was bullied. Either way he needs all of the attention to make him feel like he’s important. Dave Johnson is probably not even his real name. It’s too common a name. In fact I actually have a cousin who has the name “Dave Johnson.” I think this “Dave Johnson” is a coward.

  26. Sounds like you a jealous incompetent Lil F***.. that probably stills lives in mommy’s basement. Just because you ain’t got nothing don’t hate on other people’s accomplishments punk. Now FIGHT ME!!!!
