What is Chris Bumstead’s net worth?
Chris Bumstead is a Canadian-born pro bodybuilder and the winner of one of bodybuilding’s most prestigious titles.
The three time Mr. Olympia winner who is most popularly known to fans as CBum or Daddy CBum has built an impressive social media following across multiple platforms—including more than 7 million followers on Instagram.
He’s also built a brand around lifestyle, health, and lifting, and is commonly referred to as the nicest guy in the industry.
Described by fans as “super humble,” a hard worker, and “such a great guy,” it’s no wonder he had amassed a following of 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube by the end of 2021.
So how did CBum go from small town gym rat to one of the biggest celebrities in bodybuilding, with a crazy physique and multiple award wins?
Here’s what we know about Chris Bumstead.
The Origin Story
Christopher Adam Bumstead was born on February 2, 1995, in Ottawa, Ontario.
He was always a physical guy, playing football, basketball, hockey, and baseball right through his school years and up until the end of high school.
Chris was tall and lean, and it was when he was 14 years old that he decided to try weight lifting.
His initial goal was to bulk up a little, but as with many of his goals in life: he went further than he thought he would.
From the time he was 14 until he graduated high school, Bumstead had gone from 170 lbs to 225 lbs—a staggering 55 pounds of muscle gain.
It was around this time that Chris met his sister Melissa’s boyfriend—pro bodybuilder and Olympia competitor Iain Valliere.
What started as Chris getting tips from his big sister’s man soon went professional—Iain became his coach.
In November of 2018, Chris met fellow bodybuilder—as well as trainer and bikini model—Courtney King.
King is a Chicago native who shares more than just a love of bodybuilding with her famous boyfriend.
She also grew up involved in sports, playing basketball and soccer her whole life, doing gymnastics, and being on the swim and cross country teams through high school.
The svelte bikini model has built her own following on Instagram, and helps Chris create content for his YouTube channel in her spare time.
Welcome to the Competition
Chris made his debut on the competitive circuit when he was 19 years old.
Just two years later, in 2016, he secured his first major win at the 2016 IFBB North American Bodybuilding Championship.
That same year he also scored third in the IFBB Dayana Cadeau Classic, and followed his victories up with a 1st place at the 2017 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro and IFBB Toronto Pro in the classic physique division.
He was well and truly smitten with the competitive side of the sport, and went on to compete in the 2017 and 2018 Mr. Olympia events.
He placed second in both years, in the Classic Physique division.
Both times, he fell just short of Breon Ansley.
It would take a little more fine tuning before he would edge out his bodybuilding nemesis (the pair are friends in real life) but he would do it in a big way.
In an interview during the build up to the 2019 competition, Chris said, “It’s going to take everything I’ve got.”
Breon was tough competition—and “an amazing champ with a very complete physique” according to CBum.
He knew that if he was “dialled in” for their next match up, he could take out the competition and “dethrone the champ”.
CBum took out the Mr. Olympia title in 2019—and then again in 2020 and 2021.
In the Men’s Classic Physique division of the internationally renowned bodybuilding competition, Chris Bumstead is at the top of his game.
The video got more than 800k views in just a few days.

While most of us spend the summer bumming around and hanging out at the beach, the young bodybuilder and his sister were in Las Vegas getting ready to compete in the world’s biggest bodybuilding tournament.
Chris’s sister Melissa—who is married to Chris’s coach and former bodybuilding champion Iain Valliere—was training in the women’s division.
