Cristiano Ronaldo Makes an Insane Amount of Money From Instagram

Amazingly, he’s not even the highest-earning celebrity on this list

While most of us are still confused about why there are more filter options on Instagram than hours in a day, there are some celebrities who are making more money off a single Instagram post than many of us could make in 10 years.

Hopper just released a list of the top 10 Instagram money-earners, or as they call it, the “Instagram Rich List,” and the findings are downright depressing. Based on Hopper’s internal data, and publicly-known information, the list is organised by how much each celebrity makes on average for a single Instagram post. Basically, these are 10 celebrities who could probably buy your house with a well-filtered photo they took with their cell phone.

Of the 10 top spots, eight are taken by women. Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James are the only two men to make the list. Ronaldo is the third-highest money-earner with $400,000 (R5,347,880.00) per post and LeBron takes the tenth spot at $120,000 (R1,603,308.00) per post. It makes sense that Ronaldo is so high up. With soccer being the global game that it is, he’s certainly one of the most high-profile athletes on the planet. (He did get an airport named after him, after all. Even if it did include a nightmare-inducing bronze of his face.)

Brace yourself, and scroll through to see the celebrities making the most out of their social media accounts.
