5 Popular Celebrities Whose Net worth is Less than a Million Dollars

5 Popular Celebrities Whose Net worth is Less than a Million Dollars

It goes without saying that one of the major reasons why people fight to join reality television or showbiz is the huge amount of fame and fortune that it brings in. In other words, appearing in movies and even on television is equivalent to financial well-being. But there is also the other side of the coin.

Believe it or not, there are a number of talented and popular celebrities whose net worth is not even equal to a million! While for some, the career graph has just started and there’s still a lot of time ahead, for others, bad investment, uneventful circumstances or unwise life choices have brought down the fortune.

Here are 5 of these celebrities who will always continue to remain popular, irrespective of what fortune they have.

1. Cardi B


    Cardi B aka Belcalis Almanzar is a television personality having a net worth of $600,000. She has become a household name for “Love and Hip Hop New York”, a reality television series that is aired over channel VH1. Her other notable works include performance in the music video “Chapi Chapi” and launch of the DVD “I Am: Cardi B”.

    She left college at the age of 18 years to join the entertainment industry, and started off as an exotic dancer, before rising to fame with a television career. The show “Love & Hip Hop”, although popular, saw rough patches, with the number of audiences gradually declining, but is once again becoming popular, thanks to Cardi’s personality.

    2. Eric Balfour

      Having a net worth of $500,000, Eric Balfour has perhaps acted in almost every type of role, some of the major television shows being “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Six Feet Under” and “24”. The actor has significant roles in movies such as “Skyline”, “The Spirit” and “What Women Want”.


      Probably the primary reason why Balfour has a low net worth in spite of being popular is that more often than not, he is a supporting actor, rather than a leading one. He is also pursuing a singing career, making considerable investment in this area.

      3. Hailee Steinfeld

        Hailee Steinfeld’s career started in the “True Grit” remake, but she is yet to find another match to continue that level of success. Although she is worth just $500,000 now, it seems that her fortune will continue to rise, given her outstanding grace as a young actress. She has done notable roles in films like “Ender’s Game” and “Pitch Perfect 2”, and has also started pursuing a modeling career.

        4. Margot Kidder


          Those who love watching Christopher Reeve “Superman” movies, are well acquainted with Margot Kidder, or the popular character of Lois Lane. She has also charmed many with her significant horror role in the film “Black Christmas” and has acted in movies like “Brian De Palma’s Sisters”, “Rob Zombie’s Halloween II”, apart from being a popular face in the “Smallville” episodes.

          Although having more than 100 acting stints added to her career, Margot Kidder’s net worth is just $300,000, probably due to the different health issues that she faced.

          5. Tom Guiry

            Beginning his career as a child actor in “The Sandlot” and other films, in the 90s, Tom Guiry now has a net worth of only $100,000. His early success did not remain with him in the later period, with his last famous stint being in “The Black Donnellys”, in 2007. Unfortunately for the television personality, this NBC drama was called off air just after a single season.


            Since that time, Guiry had hardly been seen on the big or small screen, and over and above that, he spent a lot of his money over substance abuse.

            These are just a few popular celebrities who’s net worth is below a million dollars.

            12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

            12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

            Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

            A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

            1. Eat Before Heading Out

            First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.


            2. Select The Treats

            Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

            3. Avoid Skipping Meals

            Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

            4. Drink With Moderation

            It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!


            5. Be Active

            You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

            6. Get Out Of The House

            Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

            7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

            Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.


            8. Set Realistic Goals

            You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

            9. Enjoy Yourself

            Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

            10. Drink A Lot Of Water

            This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.


            11. Eat Less And More Often

            Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

            12. Prioritize Your Workouts

            Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

            So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

            Happy Holidays everyone!
