It’s always great when Forbes decides to release its annual rundown of the richest people in the world to make you feel worse about your crappy little life and pay cheque but one name on this year’s list really stood out and made me want to end it all even more than usual.

Whilst I can be cool with people like Ed Sheeran, Floyd Mayweather, Dwayne Johnson and Cristiano Ronaldo earning way more money than me – it seems like they spend their entire lives working and striving for greatness, whereas I can’t even decide what to wear when I get out of bed in the morning – I’m not so sure about one name on the list. Take a look and see if you can guess it:
- Floyd Mayweather
- George Clooney
- Kylie Jenner
- Judge Judy
- Dwayne Johnson
- Lionel Messi
- Ed Sheeran
- Cristiano Ronaldo
Whilst you might be forgiven for questioning how Kylie Jenner and Coldplay are on that list, the one that I really had a bit of an issue with there was this woman:
Yeah, Judge Judy – how the hell does she manage to earn more money than The Rock by sitting in a fake courtroom every day and dispensing fake justice? More to the point, why are people still making new episodes of Judge Judy and why are people still watching it? Aren’t there enough out there that she can happily retire and leave it to someone else? If she’s earning $400 million a year from doing it – yeah you heard that right, $400 million a year – does she really need to keep working?
I guess if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it but damn I had no idea that she even made a million dollars a year, let alone 400 times that. Find a niche, fill it and make it your own – no better example than Judge Judy apparently. Hot damn.
