Rich Gaspari

#2 Rich Gaspari

Net Worth: $90 Million

Rich Gaspari won his first competition in 1983. Nicknamed “The Dragon Slayer,” Gaspari’s competitors feared and admired his revolutionary conditioning and unusual build. Over the next 13 years, he won nine IFBB contests and was runner-up in four Mr. Olympia competitions. In 1989, Gaspari won the first Arnold Classic—formerly known as the Pro World Championship. This was his last IFBB win. Gaspari retired from the sport in 1996.

Today, he operates his own line of nutrition supplements under the name Gaspari Nutrition. His continued passion for the sport has inspired him to develop one of the most popular and effective sports nutrition brands of the day.


  1. Nice how this story mentions how rich they are, but all have admitted steroid use. Arnold had open heart surgery at 49 due to clogged arteries due to steroid use. Horrible omission of REAL FACTS.

  2. Mr. Deez you fail to realize this article ISN’T about nutrition and supplementation. It only discusses the money they have made from the sport.
    What about Lee Labrada? He’s had a successful nutrition line for years.

  3. Lou Ferrigno is worth more than 6 million dollars and Arnold Schwarzenegger did not make 300 million dollars bodybuilding.He made that much including his movie career.

  4. I always thought it was strange how Lou Ferrigno is more muscular than Arnold Schwarzenrgger but Arnold Schwarzenegger always won when they competed against each other.

  5. There were some with better symmetry and good mass i.e. Serge Nubret and sergio Oliva but they lacked the business sense to make a fortune and felt comfortable in their Role. How many of us are Millionaires ?
    Secondly, The once who are financed BB at that time ( today the same ) are looking for the most charismatic Person which brings the Sport ( and the money rolling ) to the masses.
