Dexter Jackson 2

#10 Dexter Jackson

Net Worth: $7 Million

Dexter “The Blade” Jackson first began competing in 1992, where he placed third in the National Physique Committee (NPC) Southern States Championship. He competed in a record setting 16 Mr. Olympia contests. He placed first in the 2008 competition. That made him the twelfth man to win the contest. It also made him only the second man to win that and the Arnold Classic in the same year. Jackson has won the Arnold Classic more times than any other pro bodybuilder, winning it a total of five times. He is also one of only two bodybuilders to win both a Mr. Olympia and a Masters Olympia title.

At the age of 45, Jackson showed that he was still a force to be reckoned with when he placed second in the 2015 Mr. Olympia contest. Jackson is also the namesake for the NPC Dexter Jackson Classic, an amateur bodybuilding, bikini, figure and physique contest.


  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.
