How Much is William Hung Worth?

Each of us tries to do everything to succeed: we get up early, don’t sleep at night and study all the time to become successful and leave something good on this planet after our departure. But some people manage to succeed, demonstrating … their incompetence. Probably, William Hung doesn’t know the secret of success. But he knows how to become the most successful loser. Currently his net worth is estimated at $600, 000.

To say that William Hung can’t sing is to say nothing. When he auditioned for the 3rd season of “American Idol”, the judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson couldn’t stop mocking. But William opened up, that he planned to earn his living as a singer. He performed his version of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs”. After that the judges excluded William from the contest and marked him as untalented.

But Hung’s performance was so “extraordinary untalented”, that he caught public’s attention and gained sympathy of numerous people. Don Chin, the realtor, created a site to support Hung, and it gained more than 4 million hits during the first week online. William became the frequent guest at numerous talk shows, including the most popular ones, such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with David Letterman etc.

He was signed by Koch Entertainment and released his debut album “Inspiration”. Its 200, 000 copies were sold all over USA.

Nevertheless his second album failed. In 2011 William Hung quit music career.
