The highest-earning Cameo stars


August 26, 2020

A few weeks back, we wrote about Cameo, and asked our readers to share their best celebrity shoutout stories.

Broadbandchoices took it a step further and sent us a ton of data on top Cameo stars — who earns the most, who overcharges the most, and who offers the most bang for your buck.

The analysis isn’t perfect (the figures are estimates, based on the # of reviews and each person’s going rate), but it still offers an interesting glimpse into the Cameo economy.

The platform’s biggest earner? Cop movie legend and perennial loudmouth, Michael Rapaport, who’s raked in ~$222k.

A few other interesting takeaways from their findings:

  • Caitlyn Jenner charges $2.5k per video — and her average shoutout lasts just 25 seconds. That means she charges the equivalent of $6k per minute.
  • Carole Baskin, of Tiger King fame, has earned $70k+.
  • Mark McGrath, of the band Sugar Ray, is among the best-valued stars, at the equivalent of just $24/min.
