Who are the top richest bodybuilders in the world?

Bodybuilding is a rare sport where you don’t get paid, or don’t get paid well, unless you are a champion athlete. Whereas a pro football player gets paid even if they spend a whole game on the bench – a bodybuilder only gets paid if he wins (or if he has a boat load of lucrative sponsorships and business opportunities). This adds to the competitive atmosphere in the industry – because all of that hard work will not pay off as a career if you don’t beat the other guy.

That being said – there is plenty of money to go around in the sport. Mr. Olympia currently gives out $400,000 to the Mr. O champion – and there are dozens of legendary bodybuilders who rake in loads of cash. That’s why Bodybuilding For Life has put together the top 10 richest bodybuilders in the world. Now you know what greatness pays out. Now you have even more motivation to become the greatest!

  1. How the fuck is hhh on this list, he is not a bodybuilder, he may of trained like one, but he never competed…. he is not a world class bodybuilder he is a pro wrestler. If u want him in this list then why not scott Steiner, or hulk hogan….. just cause they train doesnt make them bodybuilders, there wrestlers just wow.

  2. Lol @ the term rich bodybuilder.” Even 7x Mr. O’s still have to hawk their super awesome, bad ass, new and improved supp lines to keep themselves afloat. Rich bodybuilders……hahahahaha.

  3. I dont know that this “LIST” is because LOL IM NOT GOING TO SUBSCRIBE TO SEE THE LIST but based upon the comments it doenst sound like they are COMPETITIVE BODYBUILDERS which is what a BODYBUILDER IS. Im sick and tired of people loosel throwing the term BODYBUILDER around its always been synonomous with competing, we never had to say” COMPETITIVE BODYBUILDER” until this MY FEELINGS ARE HURT ERA!
