Every year, Forbes releases their annual Billionaires list, where they rank and track the wealthiest people on the planet. They have several spin-offs from this list, including one that ranks wealthy musicians, one for gamers, even a new edition that looks at podcaster wealth.
As far as billionaires go in 2020, Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, tops the Forbes list once again. Bezos tops the list for the third year in a row, despite his net worth falling by $18 million after the billionaire had a high-profile divorce with his wife. Even so, Bezos is still worth $113 billion this year. His ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, incidentally makes her first appearance on the billionaires list thanks to the split– she enters the list at #22, which also serves as her first appearance on this list.
