#7 Kris Aquino (Net worth: ₱120 Million)
The Queen of All Media, Kristina Bernadette “Kris” Cojuangco Aquino, gets the 7th place. Many of you might say, “I thought she’s on the top 5 or 3,” for her being one of the top taxpayers in the Philippines, but she even declined to the 6th place last year paying over ₱54 million income tax. Aside from being a member of the first family for two different administrations, Kris has earned her place in the show business for her hosting skills. Today With Kris, Game KNB, The Buzz, Kris TV, and Tonight With Boy Abunda were just some of her successful TV shows.
She also starred in the movie sequel, Feng Shui, and was even tagged as the “Box-office Horror Queen” for her outstanding portrayal of the main character. People say being the top product endorser made her even richer having made 25 to 30 endorsements up until the present.
