Soccer players get paid a lot of money. Like, ridiculous amounts of money that should make every football player really, really pissed off. But they also get paid a ton just for being popular soccer players and as an unknown writer, that pisses me off. Like, why can’t someone pay me for that?

Anyway, Cristiano Ronaldo is the epitome of this whole “soccer players get paid a lot of money” ordeal. He’s the highest paid athlete on the entire with an annual salary of $58 million and $35 million in endorsements, according to Forbes.

But that’s not even the most ridiculous thing about Ronaldo’s income. If you’re one of the 106 million people who follow the Real Madrid star on Instagram (which I am not because, you know, soccer), you’ve probably caught a glimpse of some of his many shirtless photos and obvious brand plus.

Guess how much Ronaldo gets paid for just one Instagram post? Go ahead, I’ll wait…

If you guessed $350,000 than you have an impressive understanding of social media marketing. For one post, this 32-year-old legend lands third on the “Instagram rich list” as the top-earning male in the world, just ahead of Kylie Jenner whose whole existence is basically Instagram.

Here are the top 10 Instagram rich celebs (you’ll quickly notice that 8/10 of them are Kardashians/Jenners. Ugh).

  1. Selena Gomez
  2. Kim Kardashian
  3. Cristiano Ronaldo
  4. Kylie Jenner
  5. Kendall Jenner
  6. Khloe Kardashian
  7. Kourtney Kardashian
  8. Cara Delevingne
  9. Gigi Hadid
  10. LeBron James

Jealousy. Envy. Hatred. Shame. I’m experiencing a complicated mix of emotions right now.
