A round of applause to Precious Paula Nicole as she wins the Breakout Star Award. Meanwhile, Marina Summers, Eva Le Queen, Prince, and Paolo Ballesteros are nominees at this year’s WOWIE Awards.
While the thought of having most of the Drag Race Philippines cast as exhibitors, performers, and panelists at the upcoming DragCon in LA is making our hearts swell with pride, the recent announcement of the WOWIE Awards is the cherry on top. Current winners from across the Drag Race international franchises were announced to receive the Breakout Star award, which includes Precious Paula Nicole (Philippines), Spankie Jackzon (Down Under), Paloma (France), Admira Thunderpussy (Sverige), Danny Beard (UK), Drag Couenne (Belgique), Gisele Lullaby (Canada), and LA Diamond (Italia).
The WOWIE Awards is World Of Wonder’s tribute to the best in LGBTQIA+ entertainment, trailblazers, activism, artistry, and pop culture, with the Warhol-ish soup cans awarded to winners in each category. First introduced in 2013, the awards coincided with World Of Wonder’s annual holiday party until last year when they included it as a closing event at DragCon LA.
This year’s nominations signal the expanding appreciation for diversity in the industry and act as evidence that drag is cutting across cultural boundaries and bringing together people from around the world. As Drag Race widens its reach, Filipino talent is poised for world domination. Let us show our love and support to our Filipino queens by voting at least once a day over at https://worldofwonder.net/world-of-wonders-2023-wowie-awards-at-dragcon-la-cast-your-votes-now/.
From dreaming big and aiming high as Drag Playhouse sisters to being cast together at the inaugural season of Drag Race PH, the fate of Marina Summers, Eva Le Queen, and Prince seems to be entangled. They have been nominated for their remarkable contributions to the global queer entertainment industry, emphasizing the growing impact of local power on the world stage.
Marina Summers is nominated alongside part-Filipina Anetra in the Wowlebrity On The Rise category, aka The Can’t Get You Out Of My Head Award. “Pilipinas, World, let’s make this happen! Make your Filipina Winnah claim her rightful WOWIES Award,” Marina Summers said on Instagram.
“Iba talaga ang gandang Filipina! Such a huge honor to have been nominated for a WOWIE,” Eva Le Queen said on Instagram. She is acknowledged as one of the best beauty gurus and is up for The Painted Award.
Paolo Ballesteros and Prince created TV gold during the first episode of Drag Race Philippines with Paolo’s utterance of disgust towards Prince’s choice of footwear. This moment is being honored as one of the best viral moments of the year.
TS Madison is set to host the 2023 WOWIE Awards on the second and last day of DragCon (May 13). Meanwhile, other Filipino nominees this year are Rock M. Sakura (Best YouTube Channel) and Patrick Starr’s ONE/SIZE (Best Beauty Line). Past nominees include Alec Mapa (Best Twitter, 2014), Patrick Starrr (Best Instagram, 2015 & Best Social Influencer, 2018), Jiggly Caliente (Best Drag Queen Music Video, 2018 and Best TV Moment, 2019), Bretman Rock (Hottest Hottie, 2022), and Olivia Rodrigo (Best New Artist, 2022). Past winners, on the hand, were Vivienne Pinay (Ho Ho Ho with the Holiday Spirit, 2014), Bretman Rock (Social Influencer, 2017), Phi Phi O’Hara (People That Inspire Us), and Patrick Starr (Best YouTube Channel, 2022).

Deontay Wilder Net Worth: Career Earnings, Biggest Fight Purse & Endorsement Deals Of ‘The Bronze Bomber’ – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Here is everything you need to know about the single hardest puncher in boxing and the former world heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder. This includes his net worth, career earnings and endorsement deals.
Deontay Wilder Net Worth
Deontay Wilder has been a professional boxer since his debut back in November 2008. He has been boxing consistently for over 15 years straight now in the pro ranks, earning more and more money as his career has progressed up to world level.
The 1985-born boxing superstar is one of the most fearsome punchers the sport of boxing has ever seen. Deontay Wilder’s boxing record consists of 43 wins – 42 of which have come via knockout. The only man to go the distance with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder then knocked out in a round in their rematch.
As of December 2023, it is reported that Deontay Wilder’s net worth is somewhere in the region of $30 million (source: Celebrity Net Worth).
Of course, given the fact the Alabama man is supremely wealthy, he likes his fair share of luxury items too. Wilder has acquired real estate, expensive jewelry, flashy cars and various other assets that have contributed to his riches.
Wilder reportedly has eight kids in total from various relationships, including one with his current girlfriend Telli Swift. Evidently a fair amount of Wilder’s earnings in the ring is used on providing for his big family and loved ones. Be sure to see Deontay Wilder’s net worth continue to grow for the remainder of his career, as long as that lasts.
Deontay Wilder Career Earnings
After 46 professional boxing fights, Deontay Wilder’s biggest fight purse is reported to have been around $28 million (source: Forbes). This was reportedly how much ‘The Bronze Bomber’ earned for his rematch bout with Tyson Fury back in February 2020.
Wilder went into the fight as the marginal favorite with the best offshore sportsbooks, given that he was still the reigning champion following his draw with Fury 14 months prior. Despite getting conclusively knocked out in Round 7 of the fight, this still remains the biggest purse of Wilder’s career to date.
Deontay Wilder has reportedly earned a total sum of around $95 million in his professional boxing career from his debut up to now. This is right up there with the likes of heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and is more than the likes of Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Terence Crawford.
The 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medallist has been earnings even figure purses ever since he became world heavyweight champion back in January 2015. Of his last 10 fights, just one has been less than seven figures (Washington – $900k). In fact, Wilder has earned around $80 million just from his last five fights.
See the full table below for a detailed breakdown of the purses Deontay Wilder has received for his last 10 fights. All in all, it is fair to say that the 38-year-old isn’t short of a dollar or two. His net worth, salary and fight purses will continue to rise as his career rolls on at world level.

Deontay Wilder Endorsements & Sponsorship
Although the vast majority of Deontay Wilder’s earnings comes from prize fighting, he also earns an extremely lucrative sum of money outside of the ring. These vast endorsement deals from outside of the ring are a big player in boosting Wilder’s net worth and salary.
The 1985-born boxing phenom’s biggest endorsement deal as of today is his partnership with Everlast. Wilder has shown great loyalty to Everlast for several years during his boxing career, and still sports their boxing gear to this day. He also regularly uses Everlast boxing gloves in the ring for his world title fights, as well as during training camps.
Some of Deontay Wilder’s other endorsements include his partnerships with PureKana CBD, Raising Cane’s and IHC Crypto. There is not much else known about Wilder’s endorsements and sponsors outside of his career as a boxer.
All in all, Deontay Wilder’s various sponsorships certainly help boost his net worth. Per Forbes, he reportedly earns an estimated $500,000 per annum through endorsements. Ultimately though it is punching people in the face for a living that pays ‘The Bronze Bomber’ the most money.
