I think the list is based on the most "influential" celebs. Not the richest or the most successful.

Last year it was stated that Tiger was worth 300 million and Magic was worth 850 million. Tiger is worth a lot more now, but then again so is Magic. It's estimated that Tiger could close in on a billion dollar net worth in 10 years so he could catch Magic soon if his enormous share holdings in TGIF and Starbucks fall flat.

Bon Jovi owns an arena football team that is only worth a couple million

Donald Trump is a BILLIONARE and is one of the richest men in the world...

I know that Oprah is a billionare as well but I do believe that Trump has more money that even she does...

Here's a wikipedia link which has all their net worths stated. Take the wiki link for what it's worth, besides, the last time a thread concerning athlete incomes came up there was a guy with a Jordan username and avatar, I think it was you, was demanding links to prove that Jordan wasn't the richest athlete in the world and there was tons of links about athlete incomes provided.

Sports

Earvin "Magic" Johnson will likely become the next black billionaire out of sports as he continues to expand his franchise and real estate empire. Earvin Johnson's total net worth is estimated at $800 million. Two other names that frequently come up in discussions about who will be the world’s first billionaire professional athlete: Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan. Many people have become extremely wealthy from sports; Jordan is African American; while Woods, who is half Asian, one quarter black, one eighth Caucasian, and one eighth Native American does not consider himself black, coining the term Cablinasian to describe his ethnicity. "If Jordan isn't the first billion-dollar athlete, then Tiger will be the first," said Rick Burton, director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Centre at the University of Oregon. "This guy can play golf 45 or 50 years and, if you calculate it at $200 million a year, that's an unbelievable amount of money."[10] Figures from Forbes magazine were more conservative, putting Woods' 2004-2005 earnings at $87 million and in 2005 Fortune magazine estimated Woods' net worth to be $298 million[11] However, Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher became the world's first billionaire athlete in 2005, per EuroBusiness magazine [2] (no longer published).

Fortune magazine estimated Jordan’s net worth at $398 million and although this figure is now several years dated, Jordan’s career has subsequently wound down.[12] Some have described Jordan as underpaid given that Fortune also estimated his worldwide economic impact to be at $10 billion by 1998.[citation needed]

How are Adriana Lima and Jessica Alba not 1st and 2nd. I mean honestly, those 2 could make every single man jump off a cliff if they wanted.
