How Much are Bodyparts Worth?

Bookmark and Share

Models, musicians, actresses and athletes have to take care of themselves to stay at the top of their respective fields. However, when one reaches such great levels of popularity it�s no surprise that they take precautions in the case of the unforeseen. With this in mind, online quote comparison site www.kanetix.ca compiled a list of the top ten celebrity insured body parts.

The list takes into account two specific factors: the amount of money placed on the policy, and the sheer strangeness of it. While some body parts are certainly stranger than others (see: David Lee Roth), weight is placed equally on the strangeness of a particular insured body part and the amount of money riding on the policy.

In this sense, a few notable celebs were just shy of making the final cut: Tom Jones� insured chest hair, cricket star Merv Hughes� $370,000 mustache, and of course the legendary bassist of KISS, Gene Simmons, and his infamous tongue, which is reportedly insured for a whopping $1 million.
