Early Wednesday morning the tax lists for 2021 were released, and once again Salmar’s heir Gustav Witzøe tops the list of Norway’s richest.
DN also pulled a list from a selection of influencers, and at the top of the list is Jørgine Massa Vasstrand (33), otherwise known as “Funkygine”. She is listed as having a calculated income in 2021 of NOK 7.8 million, almost double the previous year.
The Ålesund blogger first became known as a ‘training guru’, and in recent years has also featured extensively on television, including twice on the reality show ‘Skal vi dance “. In 2021, she had a net worth of NOK 1.5 million.
Blogger, author and entrepreneur
Sofie Steen Isachsen (28), better known as Sophie Elise, comes second with a calculated income of NOK 7.2 million.
Harstadværingen first rose to prominence as a pink blogger, but in recent years she has also published a book, launched her own cosmetics brand and, more recently, her own program on NRK. She is also a merchant through the company Sophie Elise as, of which she is chairman of the board of directors and general manager. In 2021, she was listed with a net worth of NOK 1.6 million.
Isachsen has more than half a million followers on the Instagram social network.
Influencer, author and former Paradise Hotel participant Isabel Raad (28) had an estimated income of NOK 3.9 in 2021.
She grew up in Randeberg near Stavanger and became really famous when she participated in the reality show “Paradise Hotel” in 2015. Today, she has almost 350,000 followers on Instagram.
Martine Lunde (26) also rose to prominence through ‘Paradise Hotel’, where she ran away with the win and the prize in 2017 after dropping the glass ball during the loyalty test.
Since then, she has appeared in TV series such as “Bloggers”, “Farmen Kjendis” and “Skal vi danse”, where she ended up in third place. She also finished fifth in the talent contest ‘Norway’s new megahit’ with the popular song ‘Fuckboy’. On Instagram, she has nearly 270,000 subscribers. In 2021, she had an estimated income of NOK 2.4 million.
Harm and Hegseth
The two VGTV profiles Vegard Harm (26) and Morten Hegseth (36) also each made their own income jumps in 2021.
Last year Morten Hegseth had a taxable income of NOK 6.4 million, more than tripling the previous year. The ‘Shall we dance’ judge is listed with almost zero wealth.
Vegard Harm had a taxable income of NOK 853,000 in 2021, but with listed assets of NOK 8.2 million, he tops the list that DN compiled, measured by assets.
He’s no longer a poor student
Karen Elene Thorsen, who started with the Instagram username “fattig.student”, is listed with an estimated income of NOK 1.5 million in 2021. That’s more than double the previous year.
She is also listed with a fortune of NOK 671,000.
Since the Instagram user really took off, Thorsen has written and published his own cookbook and launched his own app in 2020. 2021 was the second time in the past two years that Thorsen had received an income from a million, having earned just under NOK 2.5 million in 2019.
Former professional footballer Mads Hansen (38) covered several years of multimillion earnings after hanging up his boots in 2018. The same year he released the monster hit ‘Sommerkarppen’ for which he won the Spellemann Prize in the song of the year category.
Hansen has since become a familiar face among Norwegians as a participant in ‘Spårtsklubben’ on VGTV, presenter of ‘The Farm’, ‘Ikke lov å le på hytta’ and for this year’s new TV 2 adventure ‘Forræder’.
Last year he had a taxable income of NOK 1.6 million. He has almost half a million followers on Instagram.
Flesvig and Niva
Comedian, actor and screenwriter Herman Flesvig (30) settled on Instagram where he became known for humorous parodies. He then made several shows with comedian Robert Stoltenberg, and since then his career has really taken off.
In 2019, together with Mikkel Niva, he launched the super popular podcast “Friminutt”. The same year, he gave voice to countless characters in the animated film “Rutete Ninja”.
This year he also won the prize with the hit “Førstegangsjenesten” which broke the audience record on NRK. Last year, Flesvig had a taxable income of NOK 1.3 million. The comedian has more than 600,000 followers on Instagram.
