This leads me into cheerleading. There is no question that today, cheerleading is an activity that is very female-dominated. I’m not complaining, either. As an avid fan of the NFL, I can honestly say, in a game featuring two teams I don’t care about, a great cheerleading squad is something that can keep me from changing the channel. Male cheerleaders, however, would just be an irritating sight on Sunday afternoon. But as history demonstrates, in previous decades cheerleading took on a different form, being a mostly male venture, with little in the way of dancing around and skimpy outfits. In fact, until the 1920’s cheerleading was primarily male and it was only around World War Two (when most of the men were involved in that effort) that women actually took over. Even after the war, men were still heavily involved with the activity.
With that, here is a list of ten influential men who were cheerleaders at some point in their lives and their net worth. For those who are still alive, or died recently, we used net worth stats from this site, and for those US Presidents who died decades ago we found a Time Magazine article that detailed the net worth of US Presidents adjusted to 2010 US dollars.
10 Rick Perry – Net Worth: $3 Million
9 Dwight D. Eisenhower – Net Worth (Adjusted to 2010 Dollars): $8 Million
8 Ronald Reagan – Net Worth (Adjusted to 2010 Dollars): $13 Million
7 George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush – Net Worth: $26 Million and $25 Million
6 Franklin Delano Roosevelt – Net Worth (Adjusted to 2010 Dollars): $60 Million
5 Steve Martin – Net Worth: $110 Million
4 Samuel L. Jackson – Net Worth: $150 Million
3 Michael Douglas and Kirk Douglas – Net Worth: $188 Million and $60 Million
2 Mitt Romney – Net Worth (Estimated): $190-250 Million
1 Aaron Spelling – Net Worth: $300 Million
Aaron Spelling, a successful actor and one of the most prominent producers in television history, is our number one on the list of successful men who were cheerleaders. Before his acting and producing career, which included producing Charlie’s Angels, Beverly Hills, 90210 and 7th Heaven, he attended Southern Methodist University, at which he was the leader of their pep squad.
