Our Origin Story

We launched in 2018. We might be a young site, but our media entrepreneur founders have over a decade of experience in technology. We’ve developed our proprietary data system to keep information accurate and up to date—including net worth.

It all started out with a Google search—as almost everything does now.

All the information we found online about our favorite famous faces was outdated, inaccurate, or poorly written. And every site offered its own vague estimate of what the biggest and brightest stars were worth.

With our experience in technology, we knew we could do it better. We knew that you deserved better. Knowledge is power, and our goal is to give you the knowledge that satisfies your curiosity.

With the help of our own researchers and financial brains, we created Famous People Today.


There’s only one way that we can be sure we’re delivering the best to our readers: accuracy.

To guarantee our accuracy, we fact-check everything. Our team is committed to putting high-value info in front of all the eyeballs, so our editor knows we’ve checked every quote, fact, date, and stat, and back up our biographies from start to finish.

The information you find on Famous People Today is rooted in fact. That’s because our ethos is rooted in serving our readers.

Our team at Famous People Today are leaders in this field, and we put it down to 3 things:

  • Accuracy—our proprietary system shreds the net to find cold, hard financial data.
  • People—our people work to bring you the best: from writing, to fact-checking, to editing, to publishing.
  • Passion—we do this because we know it needs to be done. We want our readers to get what you want!

Learn More About Our Calculator

Our Net Worth Calculator uses a complex proprietary algorithm to calculate famous people’s total income—from salaries and royalties, investments, endorsements, business holdings, ads (for YouTubers), ads and donations (for streamers).

Then it removes estimated tax liability, management fees, agency fees, alimony payments, and child support.

Our in-house team reviews the collected data to safeguard accuracy, and then we deliver that data straight to our readers.
