New Web App Will Make You Shocked, Disgusted by Celebrities’ Net Worth

Here’s a fact that will undoubtedly brighten your Monday morning: Tyler Perry is worth $350 million. Next time you consider your yearly salary, remember that “Madea” is actually a more profitable concept than any of your creative ideas combined. Yeah, congratulations.

From Deutsch LA comes HighRoll.az, a new website/app/online game that challenges your to take the over/under on celebrities’ net worth. It’s also a nice tool for putting your own life into perspective, a device for motivating you to pick up where you left off on that crime-thriller script collecting dust at the bottom of your desk drawer. (But, seriously, please don’t.) Apparently, Deutsch employees Mark Hunter, Winston Binch, and Vic Palumbo came up with HighRoll.az during an LA Kings where the trio spent time guessing how much celebs were worth. Then, an internal team of Hassan Elzein, Marcus Silva, Trevor O’Brien and Luis Aguiluz spent two weeks developing the app to allow the public to play along.

Of note: Tom Cruise, Hollywood’s highest-paid actor of 2012, is worth $250 million. This means Tyler Perry is still worth 40% more than Cruise. So, when weighing your next career move, remember that jumping on couches on national talk shows is not worth as much as dressing in drag. Play the game on your PC here, and try to beat my first round score of 57,500.
