Forbes’ Richest Americans List Revealed: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Lands No. 20 Spot

Published on September 17, 2013 by   ·   No Comments

Forbes has just revealed it’s Richest Americans list and it’s quite extensive, to say the least.

The 400 top earners in the country come from near and far, and a wide variety of occupations.

Between sports team owners, tech-savvy individuals and media moguls, the coveted list is jam-packed with people from numerous backgrounds.

Unsurprisingly, Bill Gates still holds strong at the top of the list with an estimated worth of $72 billion. He’s held the No. 1 spot for 20 straight years—yes, you read that correctly., Warren Buffett has landed the No. 2 spot with a worth of $58.5, a $12.5 billion dollar increase since last year.

But one of the biggest gains since 2012 comes from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The 29-year-old is worth an estimated $19 billion after gaining $9.6 since last year.

Zuckerberg is also still the youngest one on the list, save for his fellow Facebook comrade Dustin Moskovitz, who is the same age.

Moskovitz is worth approximately $5.2 billion (that’s chump change to Mr. Zuckerberg!)

It should be noted that the only women to appear on the top 10 list belong to the same family: The Waltons.

Christy and Alice Walton, who both have amassed a fortune with their Wal-Mart inheritance, are not the only ones from their family on the list either.

However, Alice will be gracing one of the five limited-edition covers of the magazine and opening up in a rare interview about her American art museum in her hometown of Bentonville, Ark.

Congrats to all who made this year’s list!Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
