Kevin Kreider Net Worth, Job, Bling Empire
Kevin Kreider’s net worth was around $19 million in 2021. However, as he was asked to appear on Bling Empire, Kevin first reply was,
“But I’m not rich.”
Comparatively, Kevin might not be on par with his co-stars. But to many of us sitting at home, watching them splurging over the TV, Kevin’s net worth is all we could dream of.
So, how was Kevin able to afford the lavish life? Well, Kevin was the CEO of Taejin Entertainment LLC and worked as a personal fitness coach. Also, he was the motivational speaker for Beyond Muscle. And we all know, how well a job in the health and wellness industry paid.
As for what sparked his passion for bodybuilding, Kevin shared that he was bullied for his slender Asian physique during his early days. Guess he might as well thank those bullies for building him up.
Apart from being a fitness enthusiast, Kevin is also a model and hoped to land a role in acting. He shared that he would love to play “leading male roles” and he himself was working on scripts and projects with other writers.
Kevin has built up his background as an adopted child who struggled to find his identity. In his words,
“I wasn’t Asian enough whenever I was around Asians and I never felt like I was white enough when I was around white people.”
Also, Kevin regularly talked about how he struggled with his “Asian masculinity”. Soon, his talks caught the attention of Bling Empire castmate Kelly Mi Li who reached out to him and asked him to join the reality show.
Kevin Kreider Wife, Girlfriend, Gay
As of Jan 2021, Kevin Kreider wasn’t married and didn’t have a wife.
Over the show, Kevin was seen hung up on Kelly Mi Li. He admitted that she was “hot”, and “super successful” and that was what attracted him. But soon realizing that he had no chance with Kelly as she was already in a relationship, Kevin turned his attention towards Kim Lee. So, these two ladies were the potential girlfriend to our womanizer, Kevin.
Reportedly, Kevin and Kim were just friends then. Though many wished for Kim to be his girlfriend, the two never hinted that they could be more than friends.
As for his sexuality, Kevin Kreider isn’t gay. However, Kevin confessed that he was perceived as feminine before he bulked himself up to the masculine “American” standards. He talked about “reclaiming Asian masculinity” over his training programs and it was quite a debatable topic to many Asian Americans. They claimed that Asians don’t lack masculinity, rather they don’t fit into the definition of “masculinity” from another ethnic/racial group’s POV.
