Bling Empire is like nothing else on television. It basically takes the premise of Crazy Rich Asians and turns into an engaging documentary series. And at the heart of these stories are wealthy socialites and the various drama that makes up their day-to-day lives.
Of course, it’s only natural for fans to wonder how wealthy these stars really are. So we’ve compiled this list that ranges from the wealthiest star to the least wealthy!
Anna Shay: $600 million
For many fans of Bling Empire, Anna Shay is the primary reason to tune in. She has an unforgettable voice and an equally unforgettable way with words, especially when she lets loose her wild one-liners.
On top of being so memorable, she is also the wealthiest member of the cast with a net worth of $600 million. Where does all that cash come from? The wealth is mostly inherited from her father, Edward Shay.
The elder Shay founded the company Pacific Architects and Engineers back in 1955. When he sold it for $1.2 billion in 2006, he actually split the money between Anna and her sibling. Needless to say, this has been enough to keep Anna Shay living large!
Cherie Chan and Jessey Lee: $200 million
Cherie Chan and Jessey Lee make for an adorable duo on the show. And outside of the show, they are quite wealthy, with their net worth clocking in at $20 million.
How did they amass this cash? Cherie Chan certainly brought some money to the table thanks to her time as a pop star in Japan. And the fact that she is an heiress to a powerful denim empire.
Meanwhile, her husband Jessey Lee has a furniture empire. And even as the two are building their brands on Bling Empire, they are launching joint business ventures such as a tequila company named Religious Tequila.
Christine and Dr. Gabriel Chiu: $80 million
On their own, Christine and Dr. Gabriel Chiu would still be quite wealthy. After all, she is an heiress from Taiwan and he is a very successful plastic surgeon with royal blood in his veins dating back to the Song dynasty.
When they married, it was really a joining of financial empires. And together, they have launched Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery. Put it all together and you have a power couple worth a cool $80 million!

Jamie Xie: $50 million
At only 22 years old, Jamie Xie is worth a staggering $50 million dollars. How did she manage to achieve this awesome wealth at her young age?
It mostly comes from her father. Jamie Xie’s dad is the technology billionaire Ken Xie. You may not know his name, but you know his invention: he gave us the world’s first VPN!
Obviously, much of Jamie Xie’s early money came from her father. But she has worked hard in recent years to build her own brand as an influencer, model, and now as an actor.
Kane Lim: $20 million
There is usually a fine line between family wealth and individual wealth. But Kane Lim learned to blur those lines a long time ago.
He was certainly born into money. His Singaporean family made their money from no less than three different industries: shipping, oil, and real estate. If Kane Lim wanted to, he could have simply skated by on inherited wealth.
But he actually became a stock whiz at the age of 17. He managed to make a million dollars on his own by the time he was 19 simply via smart trading. And between his own earnings and money from his family, Lim is worth $20 million.
Kim Lee: $10 million
By now, you’ve probably noticed a pattern. Many of these wealthy stars came from wealthy families to begin with. But not Kim Lee: she actually made her millions completely on her own!
She is now worth $10 million, and she earned that money by hustling in a variety of industries. Lee has been a model in music videos for some very big names, including Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. And she has acted in everything from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation to The Hangover Part II.
But she’s also not afraid to travel the world for other gigs, including being a killer DJ. And she also makes her own music and shares it with fans online. With this busy career, Lee ended up being worth $10 million dollars!
Kevin Kreider: $10 million (projected)
How much is Kevin Kreider worth? That’s actually a very good question!
On Bling Empire, he plays something of an outsider compared to these rich families. But while his actual wealth is unknown, certain sources like The Tab think he may be worth as much as $10 million!
While Kreider himself has downplayed that as a prediction that might be accurate, it certainly paints a picture of the show. Even the smallest stars are worth quite a bit of money!

Kelly Mi Li: $5 million
Are you a fan of the show but don’t like Kelly Mi Li? Well, too bad: without her, there would never have been a Bling Empire!
She actually pitched the show to Jeff Jenkins (best known for producing Keeping Up With the Kardashians) and played a major role in casting. However, this wasn’t Li’s first rodeo. She is a very successful investor and movie producer who is now worth $5 million dollars!
Andrew Gray: $2 million
Andrew Gray is one of the few people on this show that new fans might recognize for his previous work. After all, he played as the Red Ranger in the popular children’s television show Power Rangers: Megaforce.
His net worth is $2 million, making him the least wealthy of the Bling Empire stars. But he knows how to hustle, as he has extensive experience as an actor, model, manager, and music producer.
Between these different talents and the popularity of Bling Empire, we have a feeling Gray’s net worth has nowhere to go but “up!”
