Holly Madison tops annual list of highest-paid models
In 2018 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 30) that Madison is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $20 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 American model-television host has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Madison Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Astoria Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermadison - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Holly) and a fashion line called “Holly Madison Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Holly fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
