Jordan Peele’s Net Worth

Jordan Peele's net worth

Last week, Jordan Peele became the first African American recipient of the award for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars for his film Get Out. This recognition has more eyes on Peele than ever. More people are wondering about the star’s finances.

Jordan Peele’s Net Worth

Jordan Peele has an estimated net worth of $12 million. This is considerably higher than his former co-host and best friend Keegan Michael Key, who is estimated to be worth about $7 million.

For the most part, Key has made his money through his comedy career. Peele, on the other hand, has branched out into writing and directing his own films. His comedy career is what got him where he is today though.

Peele dropped out of college to pursue his career in comedy. In 2003, he joined the cast of MADTV for its ninth season. The show is where Key and Peele met one another. During this time, both Key and Peele also appeared on a few small roles across television.

In 2012, they began airing their own show, Key & Peele, on Comedy Central. The show was extremely successful and continues to be widely watched across streaming services. It ran until 2015 when both individuals went on to seek larger moves in their careers.

Together, in 2016, they both starred in their first feature film, Keanu. The film received good reviews and made $20.7 million worldwide. Compared to the success of Peele’s next film, that seems like pennies though.

The Success of ‘Get Out’

Assuming that Key and Peele were making about the same amount of money throughout this period of time, their net worth would be about level. However, Peele’s independent successes have been far more fruitful. During all of this, Peele was dreaming up ideas for what would soon be an award-winning movie.

As you know, Peele won the award for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars in 2018 and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director. Get Out made more than $255 million worldwide.

Thirty-eight-year-old Peele became the first African American to ever receive the award for Best Original Screenplay. As you can imagine, he was elated at receiving the award and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

Peele is working on two projects currently: Lovecraft Country and Black Klansman. Lovecraft Country is an HBO television series. Black Klansman is a film that Peele will have a hand in producing. If these projects are anywhere near as successful as previous things Peele has had his hand in, his net worth will likely continue to grow in the coming year.

We all know someone who plays video games so much they could make a living doing so but how many people actually make a living that way?

Matthew Haag, better known as Optic Nadeshot, has been able to make a living playing his favorite game, “Call of Duty.” In fact, he’s become a millionaire! So, what is Optic Nadeshot’s net worth and how did he earn so much money just playing video games?

Who is Optic Nadeshot?

Optic Nadeshot, as stated previously, is a professional gamer who has been able to make his way to the top through the “Call of Duty” video game series. What made Nadeshot so successful, however, is the rise of competitive gaming.

The 24-year-old gaming professional got into competitive gaming at just the right time. Although it is a relatively new concept, he was able to capitalize on it quickly. He began as a competitive amateur playing Halo 2 and, by the time he was 16, he was making his professional gaming debut playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. 

Since June 2010, Haag has been a member of Optic Gaming, a community for professional gamers. He took the captain seat of Optic Gaming for a year and during his active time in the community, he focused on the Call of Duty games. Each COD game that has been released has been played (and conquered) by Nadeshot.

Just about every gamer out there has played “Call of Duty,” so how did Matt Haag become so successful?

Gamers have logged millions of hours playing the game, making Haag’s skills coveted. He pulls in revenue from his Youtube channel, which has practically 3 million subscribers, as well as cash prizes from competitions in which he participates in throughout the world.

Cash isn’t the only thing Nadeshot is raking in either. He is often times showered with gifts when he goes to gaming conferences. Some of his “perks” include cars and free hotel stays while he’s in the area. Many of the sponsoring companies offer the pro gamer VIP treatment.

Haag’s skills aren’t limited to gaming either. He’s also published a book called “OpTic Gaming: The Making of eSports Champions.” It has been relatively popular among gamers. He’s also moving on to bigger in better things in the years to come.

Anfisa Arkhipchenko’s Net Worth

what is Anfisa Arkhipchenko's Net Worth
If you’re used to seeing someone online, even if you hate them, you notice when they are gone. Anfisa Arkhipchenko is a woman people love to hate. However, when she deactivated her Instagram account in early December, her presence was missed. Those who follow the show she is on, “90 Day Fiance,” know who she is but what is Anfisa Arkhipchenko’s net worth?

Anfisa Arkhipchenko’s Career

Before we jump into her wealth, you’ll probably be interested to know what it is that Arkhipchenko actually does. What she is known for is appearing on TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” but what is her job?

Arkhipchenko is almost the textbook definition of a trophy wife who doesn’t do much more than stay at home and update social media but she’s managed to get herself into the spotlight by appearing on TLC. “90 Day Fiance” is a show about mail order brides and quick weddings. Arkhipchenko appeared on the show and married her husband, Jose Nava.

Nava and Arkhipchenko haven’t had a smooth relationship though. The couple has been on-and-off for some time and Arkhipchenko has thrown him under the bus publicly as well. She has posted videos telling followers that her husband doesn’t give her enough money or take care of her well enough.

Rise to Fame

Obviously, Arkhipchenko has gotten plenty of attention from her work on the TLC program. The network also did a follow-up series called “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” However, she has also been in the spotlight for some not-so-savory things, including a sex tape. (But, hey, Kim Kardashian did it, right?)

After appearing on the show, she gained hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, which is where she’s been able to earn some money of her own. So, how much is she worth?

Anfisa Arkhipchenko’s Net Worth

Making money of her own is extremely important, especially because when she rejoined Instagram earlier this month she announced a potential split with Jose Nava.

The announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to many people who follow her or have watched the TLC program. Arkhipchenko called Nava out on social media after they got married because, evidently, he lied about his own net worth. In fact, sources point to evidence that Nava is actually $30K in debt, while he has spent $75K onArkhipchenko in the short time they’ve known each other.

Because the marriage was arranged, in a way, this gives Arkhipchenko grounds for divorce. Nava wasn’t truthful about his finances, so she can probably file for divorce without much issue and possibly even win the lawsuit. But, what will she gain from that?

Many news sources have reported that Nava says he makes six figures a year from his medical marijuana business. So, she may get a cut of that when/if the divorce is finalized. However, because Nava is reportedly in debt, it isn’t likely she will make a ton of money from that.

Currently, Anfisa Arkhipchenko’s net worth is unknown. Because her husband is in debt, the couple is technically worth -$30K. Once she splits from him though, Arkhipchenko may continue to remain popular on social media channels. Many internet celebrities are able to work their Instagram handle and make decent cash. The same may be true for Arkhipchenko. Only time will tell.

Too Short's net worth
If you follow the hip-hop scene, you know Too Short’s name. At one time, he was one of the highest earning rappers in the world. Although his career has slowed down a little, Too Short’s net worth hasn’t suffered much.

So, what is he worth now and what has contributed to his overall wealth?

Too Short’s Career

Too Short’s name is usually seen among names like Tupac, Biggie, and Puff Daddy. His career hit its peak in the 1990s but he has been able to stay relevant in recent years and even land a new record deal.

His first hit album was released in 1989. It was titled “Life is… Too Short.” After releasing the album, he gained visibility in the world of hip-hop and landed collaboration deals with big names like Notorious B.I.G.

Through the 1990s and early 2000s, Too Short was featured on tracks with Puff Daddy, Wiz Khalifa, and many West Coast rappers. Some of his singles have been featured in video games, like Grand Theft Auto, as well.

For the most part, Too Short’s career has thrived from his work with other artists. He has been featured on work and asked to collaborate dozens of times throughout his 30-year music career. Too Short has even collaborated with Lady Gaga!

Although he is well-known in the entertainment world, Too Short hasn’t been in the spotlight for a while. So, how much is he worth and how has his career helped him get there?

What is Too Short’s Net Worth?

It is estimated that Too Short’s net worth lands somewhere around $15 million. Considering he hasn’t been in the direct spotlight for some time, $15 million is pretty impressive. How has he managed to maintain such a high net worth all these years?

His overall career earnings come in at $96 million, while Too Short’s annual income lands somewhere around $1.7 million. Nearly $400K of that comes from endorsement deals. It should also be noted that his net worth has nearly doubled since 2012 when he was estimated to be worth $8.5 million.

Of the $96 million he’s made throughout his career, more than $10 million has stemmed from album sales alone. As mentioned above, there was a time where Too Short was one of the highest paid rappers in the world. This allowed him to save early in his career. He has also been able to remain relevant and maintain his net worth through being featured on collaboration albums and songs.

It has been predicted that Too Short’s net worth will continue to climb in the years to come. In 2016, he made more than $2 million (slightly higher than his usual annual income). Too Short will also be releasing a new album that will likely contribute a substantial amount of money to his net worth in 2018.
