The richest RuPaul’s Drag Race judges, ranked by their massive net worths
Please spare a crumb of coin for me Mama Ru
We all know RuPaul’s Drag Race is quite simply a money making machine – but after all these years, seasons and international franchises, what judges are making the most and who has the highest estimated net worths? Here’s a quick ranking of the judges from Drag Race US, UK, Down Under and Canada by their estimated net worths, from lowest to highest.
11. Rhys Nicholson – $1 million
The Drag Race Down Under judge with his iconic flame red hair comes last on the ranking of Drag Race judges by estimated net worths, but still is guessed to be a millionaire. When he’s not judging the Aussie and Kiwi queens he’s a professional comedian.
10. TS Madison – $1 million
TS Madison has been a regular judge on Drag Race US since season 13, and any opportunity to have less Ross Mathews is a huge win in my book. She’s got an estimated net worth of 1 mil, and she’s best known for being a viral queen across socials.
9. Brooke Lynn Hynes – $1 million
The Queen of the North (no doot aboot it) has been fronting Canada’s Drag Race since it started, and is honestly an amazing judge. Being the fronting queen of the show has boosted Brooke’s net worth a lot – she’s got an estimated $1 mil fortune.
8. Ross Mathews – $2 million
The most shocking top of all time is worth $2 million, allegedly.
7. Traci Melchor – $2 million
Canada’s Drag Race’s squirrel friend Traci Melchor, who has been a main judge for the last two seasons, is estimated to be worth $2 million net worth wise.
6. Michelle Visage – $2 million
The queen muvva herself is almost as iconic to Drag Race as RuPaul herself – judging on US, UK and Down Under for many years. She’s also just the queen of British reality telly too, and has earned her COIN as well as the fandom’s eternal respect.
5. Brad Goreski – $7 million
Rachel Zoe’s nemesis and the Canadian equivalent of Carson Kressley has a hefty $7 mil estimated net worth. Also, when did he get so daddy? Looking RESPECTFULLY at the topless pics.
4. Carson Kressley – $8 million
The thinking man’s Ross Mathews. Obsessed with this pool pic.
3. Alan Carr – £10 million
You off to see Bruno Mars? Him too, see you later! Alan Carr is the king of British telly in my humble opinion and I won’t rest til Chatty Man returns to our screens. He’s got a hefty £10 mil estimated net worth.
2. Graham Norton – $40 million
A great judge and a British and Irish institution, the presenter has been in the biz for years interviewing everyone worth interviewing and has a very impressive $40 mil net worth apparently!
1. RuPaul – $60 million
The unchallenged queen of drag has turned the artform into an enterprise, and has racked up an eyewatering $60 million fortune whilst doing so. We bow down.
