Meeting a celebrity can be a really cool experience, but when we think about celebrities we usually think about what made them so famous, and their contributions to the world, rather than the amount of money they have.

Many times, the amount of fame a celebrity has is directly related to the amount of money that comes along with it, but this is not always the case. For example, there are plenty of multi-millionaires and even billionaires that are far from being household names.

Curious, I posted a question on Facebook asking you who the richest person you've ever met in Colorado is, and this is what you said.

Some of the celebrities mentioned aren't just rich, but extraordinarily rich. These include KISS bassist and merchandising mogul Gene Simmons who, according to Google, is currently worth upwards of $400 million.

Another celebrity that was mentioned as one of the richest people you've met in Colorado is a guy that's synonomous with the state and well-known for representing our major league football team the Denver Broncos, number seven himself, John Elway.

While it's easy to assume that the Broncos legend has a lot of money, it may surprise you to find out that John Elway is currently worth $145 million.

In addition, some of the famous celebrities mentioned are no longer with us, meaning that when they were alive, they were worth a lot of money, so those numbers can be adjusted for inflation. These include Glen Campbell, Chris Ledoux, and John Wayne.
