OVERALL TOP 10 Chinese Entertainment Showbiz Young Rich and Famous Celebrities Ranking 2010
1. Fan Bing Bing (29) - 62.5 million
2. Selina (29) - 43.5 million
3. Hebe (27) - 41 million
4. Jane Zhang (26) - 38 million
5. Ella (29) - 36 million
6. Charlene Choi (28) - 35.5 million
7. Rainie Yang (26) - 29.4 million
8. Khalil Fong (27) - 28.5 million
9. Jam Hsiao (23) - 26.85 million
10. Sun Li (28) - 26 million
Ranking number 1, Fan Bing Bing pulls away with a clear gap, clearly proving how this not yet 30 year old woman has already taken a step forward to the front line in Mainland, being able to see her silhouette in every big name Chinese movie production. Occupying 8 positions, singers have particular strength with 8 positions following Fan Bing Bing collectively from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland popular to the masses. Observing this ranking, one can see industry-produced idols such as SHE running neck and neck with artists like Jam Hsiao representing those born after 1985. However, the results and achievements of Hong Kong artists are too wretched. One interesting phenonmenon is that Hong Kong, once popular to the core, has only handed over a portion of attractive bright spots with only Charlene Choi and Khalil Fong entering the Top 10. Regarding the Cantonese culture's music entertainment circle which has become increasingly narrow, the halos of Hong Kong's superstars are on the verge of being completely erased. If the declining Hong Kong entertainment showbiz is unable to find even better methods to breakthrough, Twins are also getting old.
