Jess Glynne Net Worth

Jess Glynne: What is Jess Glynne’s Net Worth?

Jess Glynne is a British singer/songwriter who rose to prominence last year, after multiple hit tracks. With all of that success comes a lot of money — so what is Jess Glynne’s net worth?

Jess Glynne Goes From Humble Beginnings to Musical Stardom

Glynne didn’t start off a music success. In 2013, she was working a standard office job, according to “The JC”.

Glynne started her music career by trying to get on “The X Factor,” but she didn’t get anywhere. Still, she stayed in the music business. She got jobs at in several music-related areas, and used the contacts she made to push her career forward.

After a lot of hard work, she was able to sign a contract with Atlantic Records, and she debuted her first hit song in 2014.

Jess Glynne Breaks Records

Due to her popularity — especially online — Glynne very quickly started to break charts records. And she had several top songs on the charts at once.

Nevertheless, that popularity didn’t necessarily lead to riches. Royalties didn’t produce as much money as you’d expect. For instance, according to “The Shortlist”, her Spotify royalties were in the thousands of dollars.

But like other artists, only a small amount of her income came from royalties. She did a major tour in 2016, crisscrossing the UK, which earned her a lot. She also earned money from other ventures.

So what is Jess Glynne’s Net Worth?

We estimate that Jess Glynne is worth slightly over $4 million. This is slightly lower than expected, because her dollar net worth was affected by the post-Brexit crash of the British Pound.

We expect 2017 to be a very big year for Glynne, and wouldn’t be surprised if she passed $5 million this coming year.

Shark Tank cast

Shark Tank cast — What’s the net worth of the Sharks in 2017?

The Shark Tank cast, much like any other judges of competitions, tend to be overly scrutinizing and ruthless about candidates they feel deserve their investment. We previously told you the net worth of these entrepreneurs, investors and moguls here. But just how much is the cast of Shark Tank worth now? With all of the market fluctuations, let’s see who was a winner and who was a loser! We’ll also get to see the net worth of a few of the newest judges who made appearances on the show.

The Shark Tank cast includes Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Lori Greiner, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, and Barbara Corcoran. But in the past season, quite a few guest judges have made an appearance. These include pubic figures such as Ashton Kutcher and Chris Sacca. Read on to find out the collective net worth of this very valuable cast!

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Mark Cuban

Shark Tank cast member Mark Cuban has been a longstanding entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He’s started multiple companies including HDNet, MicroSolutions, and Broadcast.com. In addition, he is the co-owner of the Landmark Theater Chain, Magnolia Pictures and Magnolia Home Video. Mark Cuban also gained fame when he predicted the demise of Yahoo and sold all of his share in the company, right before it plummeted from $163 per share to $8.11 per share. The last couple of years have been a success for Mark Cuban given that his current net worth comes in around $3.3 billion.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Robert Herjavec

Robert Herjavec’s family immigrated from Croatia with reportedly no more than $20 in their pockets. While Herjavec began his career in film, he obtained his first job at Logiquest as a salesman by offering to work the first 6 months for free. He supported himself during this period by waiting tables. After being fired from Logiquest in 1990, he founded his own company, Brak system, an internet security software system, and sold it to AT&T for $30.2 million. Though he took a few years off after the sale, Herjavec went on to found Herjavec Group in 2003, one of Canada’s largest internet security provider companies. Unfortunately for Robert Herjavec, he also underwent a divorce. As a result, this Shark Tank cast member’s net worth declined from $200 million to around $100 million.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Lori Greiner

Lori Greiner is fondly called the “queen of QVC,” and is the president and founder of Chicago-based For Your Ease Only, a product development and marketing company. She has launched more than 400 products and holds 120 US and international patents. One of Lori Greiner’s investments as a member of the Shark Tank cast, Scrub Daddy, has been one of the biggest success stories from the show and has garnered $75 million of sales. Lori Greiner’s net worth is estimated to be around $50 million.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Kevin O’Leary

Kevin O’Leary is noted to be one of the more abrasive judges on the Shark Tank cast. So just how successful is he? Well, Kevin O’Leary reportedly began his first business with a $10,000 investment from his mother. SoftKey Software Companies, Kevin O’Leary’s first company, was founded in his home’s basement after Kevin graduated from college. O’Leary sold The Learning Company to Mattel in 1997 for $3 billion. As of 2016, O’Leary’s net worth was $300 million. Clearly O’Leary made his ruthlessness work for him!

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Daymond John

Daymond John is the founder of FUBU and made his fortune by building a fashion empire. Daymond John was raised by a single mom in New York City. She had to work more than one job to make ends meet. To make himself the clothes he wanted to wear but weren’t available anywhere else, Daymond John asked his mother for a sewing machine and got his start selling what he made. When his hats began to sell well, Daymond John convinced his mother to take out a second mortgage on their home and used the money to found FUBU. FUBU truly rose to fame after Daymond John’s childhood friend, LL Cool J, promoted the clothing. As a result of the success of FUBU,  Shark Tank cast member Daymond John is worth $250 million.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Barbara Corcoran

Barbara Corcoran is considered the real estate expert among the sharks given that she first started out in business by founding the Corcoran Group in 1973, a real estate business. She went on to escalate her brand by publishing the Corcoran Report, an analysis of real estate data trends in New York City in the mid-1970s. She notes that what the report really accomplished for here was to get her name out. She is a real estate contributor to multiple shows and also acts as a business consultant via her consulting and television production company, Barbara Corcoran Inc. Barbara Corcoran has been a clear winner in the last few years since her net worth has gone up to around $80 million.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher is not just your average Hollywood pretty boy. In fact, he’s become a savvy investor, founding his venture capital firm, A-Grade Investments. The combined valuation of A-Grade Investments has been estimated to be as much as $150 million, with investments in household names such as Airbnb, Shazam, Path, Flipboard, Foursquare, Uber, Spotify, Fab.com, Soundcloud, Pinterest, Washio, Nextoor, Houzz, and more. Of course, that side gig, acting, doesn’t hurt him either. Ashton Kutcher is said to have earned $750,000 per episode of the hit comedy series Two and a Half Men, which means his paycheck per season has been a cool $18 million. All of that — including his earnings as a Shark Tank cast member — tallies up to a $140 million estimated net worth.

Shark Tank Cast Net Worth: Chris Sacca

Chris Sacca is one of the more interesting Shark Tank cast members, primarily because his success hasn’t been a simple ascent from rags to riches as seems to have been the case for so many others. Chris Sacca started out as a lawyer, gambling his student loans during law school on the stock market, and turning $20,000 into $12 million. However, his success gave way to failure when the market crashed and Sacca found himself as much as $3 million in debt. Sacca didn’t give up and got a job at a law firm as an associate, but was then let got after a little more than a year. He then supported himself by independent contracting gigs as a lawyer that he secured on Craigslist and Elance and eventually landed a job at Google as a general counsel. He worked there until his shares vested and left in 2007 to found his own venture capital firm, Lowercase Capital. Now, this is where things get interesting. Sacca funded companies such as Twitter, Uber, Instagram, Twilio and Kickstarter. Chris Sacca’s net worth is estimated to be $1.2 billion.

All together, the Shark Tank cast’s net worth tops out at $5.5 billion!

Kevin James Net Worth 2017

With a new hit show called ‘Kevin Can Wait’, Hollywood moneymaker Kevin James is back. Even though most of his movies are low budget, he is one of the best investments a studio can make given the percentage return on investment for his movies.

Kevin James: Cash Cow

In the last few years, Kevin James has made several high grossing movies. Paul Blart: Mall Cop, for example, made almost $220 million on a budget of nearly nothing. And in 2015, Paul Blart 2 was Sony’s highest grossing movie. Pixels also did well.

Now, Kevin James has a new show, ‘Kevin Can Wait’, which since premiering on CBS a few weeks ago, has been the highest rated new comedy of the year.

James was making over $500,000 per episode toward the end of his previous hit show, King of Queens, and star salaries have increased dramatically since then, so it wouldn’t be surprising if James is making nearly $1 milllion per episode (although we expect it’s closer to $500,000 since this is a new show).

Forbes in 2012 listed James as number 10 on their list of “Best Actors for the Buck.” According to their analysis, for every $1 paid, James returns over $22. James’ movies often are very cheap to make but do very well at the box office, making him a very good investment for studios.

According to Variety, in 2012, Kevin and his wife bought a home in Florida for $18 million. In the same article, they note that just four of James’ movies brought in a total of $800 million.

So what is Kevin James’ net worth in 2017?

So with the royalties from the films and King of Queens we would estimate James’ net worth at a little under $100 million. Add to that his salary from ‘Kevin Can Wait’ and we estimate his salary to be between $100 and $120 million.

Now, that’s a lot of dough for a mall cop!
