A few hours ago, the Russian Forbes published a new rating – it included the most successful representatives of show business and sports under 40. The rating was calculated according to two criteria: the income of the stars for the year and their popularity, which depends on the mention in the media and social networks and queries in search engines.
Like last year, the UFC champion, 31-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov, topped the list. During the year, the martial arts master earned $ 16.5 million and was mentioned more than 49 thousand times in the media. The second line of the rating also remained unchanged – it was occupied by the singer and TV presenter Olga Buzova. Her income has almost halved compared to the previous year (this year she earned $ 2.7 million), but the star still appears on the pages of publications more often than most of her colleagues.
The third line of the list was taken by the singer Yegor Creed. He moved up to fourth place hockey player Alexander Ovechkin, who was third last year. During the year, Yegor managed to earn $ 6.9 million, and Alexander – $ 15.1, but the former is significantly ahead of his colleague in popularity.
Ksenia Sobchak closed the top five in the rating – in a year she earned $ 4.4 million and was mentioned more than 51 thousand times in the media. For comparison, last year the journalist was only 12th on the list with an annual income of $ 1 million.
The top ten leaders this year also included Timati, Dima Bilan, Polina Gagarina, Artemy Panarin and Basta. At the same time, Irina Shayk also appeared in the top twenty (she took 16th place with an income of $ 4.5 million) and Nastya Ivleeva, who took 17th place with an annual income of $ 1.5 million.
