Tyson Beckford net worth: Tyson Beckford is an American fashion model and actor who has a net worth of $14 million. Before making a shift to a film and television career, Tyson Beckford first rose to fame as a preeminent face for opulent clothier Ralph Lauren, after which he went on to become the first African-American male supermodel. Being a New York City's Bronx native, Beckford was born in 1970 to Jamaican parents and spent the early years of his life, until he was seven, in Jamaica. Having got back to the upstate New York, he got enrolled at top-ranked Pittsford Mendon High School in an affluent suburb of Pittsford, thanks to being part of a busing program that brought youths from urban areas to suburban schools. In 1992, he was recruited to hip hop magazine The Source and next landed an agent and began modeling for Ralph Lauren. This led Beckford to appear in print ads, on television and at various fashion events around the world. Climbing up on the career ladder, he was named a Man of the Year and one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1995. Several years later, he widened his modeling horizons, making his feature debut with a cameo as himself in the Ben Stiller comedy Zoolander (2001). One year later, Beckford landed more substantial supporting role in the 2002 low-budget thriller Pandora's Box. As for TV, he served as a correspondent on the magazine show Source All Access TV (2000-01), after which he got guest spots on Half & Half (UPN, 2002-06) and My Wife and Kids (ABC, 2000-05). While his most notable small-screen roles include Biker Boyz (2003) and Into the Blue (2005). In June 2005, he went through near-fatal experience, surviving a car accident in Secaucus, New Jersey. Two years later, he shared hosting duties with fashion model Niki Taylor on the reality competition Make Me a Supermodel (Bravo, 2007- ).
