In 2018 it looked like the dancer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (November 26) that Dupond is the highest-paid dancer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

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

The French 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 Dupond Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Paris Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdupond - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Patrick) and a fashion line called “Patrick Dupond Seduction”.
