Forbes has just released its annual list of the world's 100 highest-earning entertainers, and this year's top 10 is a mix of athletes, actors, musicians, one reality TV star-slash-lip-kit mogul, and one TV judge.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather bagged top spot, pulling in a tidy $285 million in pre-tax earnings — a sum gathered almost entirely on the strength of his fight against Conor McGregor in August 2017. Forbes' latest cover star Kylie Jenner comes in third with $166.5 million, perhaps unsurprisingly considering she's tipped to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever within the next 12 months.

Elsewhere, Judy Sheindlin — yes, Judge Judy — arrived in fourth place with $147 million, ahead of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The top 10 is as follows:

1. Floyd Mayweather — $285 million 2. George Clooney — $239 million 3. Kylie Jenner — $166.5 million 4. Judy Sheindlin — $147 million 5. Dwayne Johnson — $124 million 6. U2 — $118 million 7. Coldplay — $115.5 million 8. Lionel Messi — $111 million 9. Ed Sheeran — $110 million 10. Cristiano Ronaldo — $108 million
