The Riches of Claudia Sampedro
How rich is Claudia Sampedro? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned largely through a successful career in modelling, with a significant amount from her reality television work. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
At the age of six, her parents decided to move the family to the US and they settled in Miami, Florida; very little other information is known about her childhood and her parents, and details of her education are also scarce, though it is known that she took up cosmetology during her time in a university.
However, her modelling career began before she got into college, as she started gaining opportunities to model at 16 years of age. She gained an agent, talent scout John Casablancas, who would introduce her into several modelling shows, which increased her popularity as well as her wealth. Eventually she landed a few advertising projects and print media modelling opportunities, then appeared on the cover of “Face 2 Face Magazine” leading her to work with “Mixed Magazine” as well – both publications are focused on glamour models. In 2011, she signed a sponsorship deal with Nutri Sups which sells various fitness supplement products, a partnership which allowed her to gain a significant amount of wealth.
Sampedro’s next opportunity would come in 2016, when she was offered the chance to become a cast member of the reality documentary television series entitled “WAGS Miami”. The acronym stands for Wives and Girlfriends of Sportspersons, and this show is the first spin-off from “WAGS”, and produced by Lori Gordon and Amber Mazzola, follows the personal as well as the professional lives of several WAGs. The series was distributed by Machete Productions and follows the same format to that of the original show, with only the setting being different as it is shot in Miami.
The first season featured seven women including Sampedro, who was then the fiancé of National Football League (NFL) defensive end Julius Peppers. Other cast members included Astrid Bavaresco, Vanessa Cole who is the girlfriend of Mike Wallace, Darnell Nicole who is the ex-fiancé of Reshad Jones, Metisha Schaefer who is the ex-girlfriend of Larry English, Ashley Nicole Roberts who is the fiancé of Philip Wheeler, and Hencha Voigt. The show aired for two seasons of eight episodes each, but was cancelled in 2018 due to low ratings.
