Rachael Ray on Forbes Celebrity 100 List

Well guess who is number 81 on the Forbes Celebrity 100 List? This is Rachael Ray's first time on the list that ranks celebrities based upon consideration of "a combination of factors including income, Web references as calculated by Google, press clips as compiled by Lexis/Nexis, TV/radio mentions from Factiva and the number of times a celebrity's face has appeared on the cover of 26 major consumer magazines." According to Forbes: "Only a combination of earnings and sizzle will land a celebrity a coveted spot on our Celebrity 100."

Rachael earned an estimated 6 million from June 2005 to June 2006 and has an E-Score rank of 4th of the 100 Celebrities (only Tom Hanks, Adam Sandler and Will Smith outranked her). The E-Score "is a celebrity appeal ranking, comprised of 46 separate personality attributes." Her top attributes are listed as Cute and Talented. Other chefs on the list include Food Network stars Wolfgang Puck (#89), Emeril Lagasse (#94) and Mario Batali (#97).

Here's the blurb about Rachael:
Perky quick-meal queen stars in four Food Network shows, including her signature "30-Minute Meals." Cookbooks, including the recent "Express Lane Meals" and "365: No Repeats," are best sellers this year. Ray also appears on the cover of her own bimonthly lifestyle magazine, Every Day With Rachael Ray. Next up: a talk show to debut this fall, co-produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions
