While Isabel Raad and Sophie Elise Isachsen declined in income last year, Jørgine “Funkygine” Massa Vasstrand continues to increase.
The tax figures for 2020 are clear. They show a gap in the income of Norway’s largest influencers.
Training profile and program manager Jørgine “Funkygine” Massa Vasstrand (32) raised a little over 4.2 million in 2019. She stays at the high level and increased in 2020 by 54,000 kroner. With that, Funkygine lands at over 4.270 million earned kroner last year.
Funkygine ranks second on the list of those who earned the most last year, under Julie Varner (28), who tops the influencer list with more than 25 million kroner. Varner is the daughter of Petter Varner who owns the Varner group with his brother Joakim Varner. The 28-year-old also topped the list last year.

Sophie Elise Isachsen (26) had a slight decline from 2017–2018, but in 2019 the influencer boasted close to NOK 4.2 million in income, and had his best financial year. This year she goes down again.
According to The online newspaper Sophie Elise, currently acting as program manager in «Good Evening Norway» and in the new year participates in «Farmen kjendis», earned NOK 2.6 million last year, which must be said to be a sharp decrease from the previous year.
Isabel Raad (27), also known from her own reality show «Isabel», earned just over three million kroner in 2019, which meant an increase of almost two million kroner from 2018. The online newspaper could already a month ago report that Raad in 2020 earned 2.3 million kroner.
In other words, Raad has lost NOK 700,000 in income in one year.
