The first episode of season two aired on May 13 and not only saw fan favourites Anna Shay and Kane Lim return to screens, but the addition of two new ultra-rich women to the fierce squad.

Where is the Bling Empire cast now – and what does Season 2 have in store?

Mimi Morris

Estimated net worth: US$800 million

Source of wealth: Her husband

A newcomer for season two, Mimi is a strong contender for the title of richest star on the show. Well, by default at least. She is wife to Donald Morris, CEO of Morris Group International. His net worth is estimated at US$800 million, and as such her Instagram page is filled with private planes, luxury trips and a lavish lifestyle.

According to MyImperfectLife, Mimi was born in Vietnam which she escaped during the war as a young girl together with her family, reportedly spending two years in absolute squalor as they tried to get to the US to start a new life.

Anna Shay

Estimated net worth: US$600 million

She’s back for season two and the show-stealing Bling Empire queen remains at the No 1 spot in terms of her own wealth. Anna’s father, Edward, ran PAE, a successful American defence contractor. They grew up in extreme privacy because of her father’s wealth, with the family never travelling together to protect succession plans. It was only after her father’s death in 1995 then her mother Ai Oizumi’s death in 2015 that Anna decided to be more “public” – you might say she’s making up for lost time.

Although Shay is super wealthy, those close to her know that she is generous with it. According to Screen Rant she once met a homeless man named Elvis at an early morning flower market and gave him an apartment and stocked his pantry.

Christine and Gabriel Chiu

Estimated net worth: US$80 million

Source of wealth: Plastic surgery

She’s an heiress from Taiwan and he’s a celebrity plastic surgeon whose family claim to be direct descendants of the Song dynasty emperors who ruled China until the 13th century.

Together they co-founded Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, certainly elevating their combined net worth. Christine has powerful connections around the world and in 2019 started a foundation with Prince Charles in Scotland called The Prince’s Foundation Chiu Integrated Health Programme.

Jaime Xie

Estimated net worth: US$50 million

Source of wealth: Family money

She’s always got the front row seat at fashion week and her blog and influencer fees bump up her bank balance. But it is her dad’s wealth that is really astounding. Ken Xie built the world’s first firewall and VPN, and his net worth is estimated at US$3.5 billion according to Celebrity Net Worth. As a supposed heiress to at least a chunk of that, Jaime certainly doesn’t need to work, but she is trying her best to make a name for herself in the world of fashion.

Kane Lim

Estimated net worth: US$20 million

Source of wealth: Family money and investor

Lim was born into wealth thanks to his Singaporean family’s holdings in property, oil and other industries. Although there’s no doubt he got help in life, at 17 he began investing in stocks and two years later he made his first million. Kane, who is a shoe fanatic, has an investment fund and also spends his cash on property.

Kane also scored big time with his new gig as the face of Fenty – Rihanna’s mega beauty brand. He is Fenty’s first Southeast Asia ambassador and has said that when season one of Bling Empire was released, Riri messaged him to ask when the second season would be out. Wowza.

Estimated net worth: US$10 million

In the show Kevin is clearly not the wealthiest member of the gang. But his looks, connections and spot-lit role have obviously added to his bank account. It has been reported that he was worth an estimated US$10 million, but Kreider told E! News that was a “more of a future prediction”. In season one he said he shared a home and paid US$1,000 in monthly rent.
