The Fat Jewish Net Worth:
What is the net worth of The Fat Jewish?
The Fat Jewish is a $80 million Instagram personality, writer, actor, model, and entrepreneur from the United States. The Instagram account “TheFatJewish” catapulted Josh Ostrovsky, also known as Josh Ostrovsky, to stardom. His Instagram account was created in 2009 and grew viral in 2013. In 2014, Time magazine named him one of the 30 most influential people on the Internet. He has more than 10 million followers. The Fat Jewish published Money Pizza Respect in 2015 and has appeared in films such as “Ben Banks”, “Zoolander 2”, “Status Update”, and “The American Meme”. He has also starred in The Chainsmokers, Dillon Francis, DNCE, and Charli XCX music videos.
The Fat Jewish is a co-founder of the firm Swish Beverages, which in 2015 released the White Girl Rosé wine label. Since then, he has developed a number of alcohol labels. Annheuser-Busch InBev purchased a minority ownership in the business in 2018. In June of 2019, the entire firm was bought by Annheuser-Busch InBev. Approximately 95% of Swish Beverage’s income were produced by White Girl Rosé at the time of the transaction. The brand reportedly sold between $150 to $200 million. Josh was the majority owner of the three co-founders of the company. Between the two deals, Ostrovsky made an estimated $120 million before taxes.
Ostrovsky was born in New York City on February 18, 1982. His father is Paul Ostrovsky, a Russian-born radiologist, and his mother is Rebecca, a dietitian. He was raised in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Beginning with the Packer School in Brooklyn, he attended Trevor Day School and Dwight School in the Upper West Side during his formative years. Early in his career, he aspired to become an actor and appeared in several commercials, including one for Hershey’s.
He was expelled from both New York University and Skidmore College, where he had previously studied. He then enrolled at New York State University at Albany. In 2006, he finished with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism. During this time, he joined the rap group Team Facelift and began using the moniker Fat Jew. The band started in 2004 and signed with Duck Down Records before releasing “Mixed Emotions” in 2006. They then separated in 2010
Ostrovsky was recruited in 2009 as an entertainment reporter for “The Daily 10” on the E! Network, where she conducted celebrity interviews. He subsequently began hosting the web series “An Intimate Conversation,” which featured rap interviews. In 2013, he also sold a program to Amazon that was intended to lampoon the Williamsburg, Brooklyn hipster lifestyle, but the project was never created.
In 2011, Ostrovsky established an Instagram account with the moniker “The Fat Jewish.” In 2013, he released a video parodying the popular workout spin class “SoulCycle” that went viral. His account was suspended later that year due to improper material. In reaction, he organized a demonstration outside Instagram’s New York office, which Vice.com live-streamed. His account was restored within only 15 minutes, indicating the effectiveness of the rally. Several prominent media outlets, including “The New York Times” and “Time” magazine, continued to run features on him. Time’s 2015 list of “The 30 Most Influential People on the Internet” included him. In the same year, he was also accused of publishing screenshots of other comedians’ jokes on his account without giving them full credit. Later, he amended his posts to properly attribute sources. His account still has over 10 million followers in 2021.
Ostrovsky has leveraged his social media success to create wider prospects elsewhere in the entertainment industry. He obtained a modeling deal with One Management in June 2012 and claims to be the world’s first male plus-size model. In May of 2015, he was featured in a picture shoot in “Inked” magazine and presented his range of men’s clothing under the title Dad Fashion Show at New York Fashion Week.
He got a contract with Comedy Central in 2014 to produce a scripted sitcom based on his life. In 2015, he also made frequent appearances on Bloomberg News and appeared in a Bud Light advertisement that aired during Super Bowl XLIX. He starred in music videos for DNCE and Charli XCX in the same year. His acting career expanded when he starred in a variety of reality series and films, including “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” “Status Update” and “The American Meme” are among the films in which he has appeared. In addition, he has product placement agreements with businesses such as Virgin Mobile, Burger King, Budweiser, Weight Watchers, and Stella Artois for his Instagram postings. He also became a spokesman for the company Seamless in 2015.
His other endeavor was the establishment of his own beverage firm. He co-founded Swish Beverages, which released the White Girl Rose wine in 2015. The business then released the Babe series of sparkling canned wines in response to the launch. Anheuser-Busch InBev purchased Swish Beverages in June of 2019, marking the brand’s largest wine investment to date.
In 2014, Ostrovsky wed his first wife, the blogger Katie Sturino. The couple announced in 2016 that they will divorce. He afterwards wed Caitlin King. In February of 2021, the couple welcomed a son called Buddy. As an ordained pastor, Ostrovsky has also officiated at a number of marriages in the past. In 2015, he also published his own collection of writings and personal narratives titled “Money Pizza Respect.” The title of the book is derived from a radio program he once presented on Apple Music.
