#13 Dorian Yates
Net Worth: $4 Million
English-born Dorian Yates’ career consists of 15 major contest wins, along with two runner-up finishes. Talk about impressive. He competed in seven Mr. Olympia competitions. He was runner-up in his first one. He followed that up by placing first from 1992 through 1997. Yates earned his nickname “The Shadow.” It came from his tendency to remain out of the public eye for long periods of time and unexpectedly appearing at (and winning) major bodybuilding contests.
In 2006, Yates franchised four locations of Temple Gym, a gym he purchased in Birmingham in 1987. He continues to play a major role in managing it today. Yates also created his own line of protein and weight-gain supplements. There’s Dorian Yates Ultimate Formulas, as well as DY Nutrition. The latter makes pre-workout formulas and produces training DVDs.
