4. Rachael Ray

Estimated Worth: $60-100 Million

She's been left off similar lists because she doesn't actually own or cook at any restaurants. But this strikes us as sour grapes. Her presence on the Food Network with 30 Minute Meals and $40 a Day led to Oprah giving her own talk show (“YOU GET A SHOW!”). She's amassed loads of endorsements, products, and an empire of food-related stuffs without ever having opened a restaurant. Sure, she may be annoyingly bubbly and has coined some silly catchphrases (“E-V-O-O”, “yum-o”), but she makes bank, bro, so quit hating.
