Len Goodman tops annual list of highest-paid dancers
In 2018 it looked like the dancer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (October 26) that Goodman is the highest-paid dancer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over his 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 English dancer has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Goodman Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Bromley Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergoodman - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Len) and a fashion line called “Len Goodman Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Len fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
