I'm fascinated by it, I mean - just who are these people?
Never before have we been able to see such meteoric rises of nobodies to somebodies who are able to attain significant wealth and status on the way.
Take Zoe Sugg aka Zoella. Zoella is a 25 year old YouTube vBlogger who started her channel 6 years ago and has over 7 million followers. As of 2015 her net worth is thought to stand at an incredible £3 million.
Or the boy band 'One Direction', just some guys that entered a singing contest and who are now officially the richest boy band in history - each of them worth £15 million!
I've flown fast jets now for 17 years but I don't consider myself a success - maybe if I was an astronaut I might be?
