The Net Worth of Rachel Bush
How rich is Rachel Bush? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is at $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth has also been increased potentially, thanks to the success of her husband who recently signed a four year $13 million contract which elevated their wealth significantly. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Rachel’s childhood and family, except that since she was young, she had desired to pursue a career as a model. Growing up, she developed a love for outdoor activities and started playing several sports, with local basketball and football teams in her area, but never really thought that sports would be the career for her. Instead, she looked forward towards the possibility of modelling. She grew up with a sister and the two spent a lot of their youth in New York. In 2014, her fame started to increase significantly, after she joined the Miss Teen New York Pageant reaching the finals of the competition, and joining the pageant to gain more opportunities in the modelling industry. After matriculating from high school, she moved to Florida to attend Atlantic University, completing an associate’s degree at the age of 17.
Career and the LeBron Issue
After completing her education, Bush knew that trying to find a career in modelling would be a rocky path at the start, so she tried to balance her efforts towards a career in the field while working as a sales agent. She spent a lot of free time maintaining her physical image and kept herself in top physical condition through regular exercise routines. Her online popularity increased significantly when she posted a photo on Twitter with the caption “Haha Wut”. The post didn’t really gain attention at first, not until she posted another showing a direct message she received on Instagram coming from the account of LeBron James.
She quickly deleted the tweet, but it stayed long enough for a lot of people to notice, and it quickly became viral, because LeBron James is considered one of the top professional basketball players of today, with many regarding him as the greatest of all time. The controversy with the message lay in the fact that he had been married for a long time and has children. Many started reporting that the account sending the message to Bush was actually fake, and not James’ official account. Other stated that even if it was James account, there was a possibility that he is not using it, as many celebrities today have people managing their social media pages. She later confirmed the latter, stating that it was probably a friend or social media manager who wanted to strike up a conversation with her.
Husband – Jordan Poyer
Rachel’s husband Jordan is a professional American Football player best known from playing for the NFL team, the Buffalo Bills. He played college football for Oregon State University, and entered the 2013 NFL Draft in which he was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles. During his high school career, he was also selected during a draft for Major League Baseball, but decided to focus his endeavors on football.
He was quickly released by the Eagles during the season, but was picked up by the Cleveland Browns off waivers. He became a backup strong safety behind TJ Ward, and started to gain a lot of attention with his performances for the team. He continued to remain as a backup free safety for the next two years, but eventually earned his first career start in 2015. He continued to perform exceptionally throughout the season, and became the starting free safety during the 2016 regular season, and ended his contract with the team achieving several career highs. In 2017, he was signed by the Buffalo Bills to a four-year $13 million contract, which included $7.4 million guaranteed and a signing bonus of $3.5 million. He became the starting free safety during the regular season, and was able to help the team to second place in the AFC East, making the first round of the playoffs in which the team lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
