Évelyne Thomas tops annual list of highest-paid journalists

In 2015 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (November 18) that Thomas is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between October 2016 and October 2017, a nearly $50 million lead over her closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French journalist-television host has an estimated net worth of $245 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Thomas Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Perpignan Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderthomas - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Évelyne) and a fashion line called “Évelyne Thomas Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Évelyne fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
