Actress and pop culture icon Raquel Welch has a net worth of $30 million. In addition to her net worth, she's achieved a kind of "household name" popularity that even movie stars have difficulty reaching. Her career in show business began at the tender age of 7, when she began what would become her first passion, ballet. Until the age of 17, this was her chief art form, before she quit ballet after she was told by an instructor that her body was the wrong type for it. In 1959 she began acting, starring in the play The Romana Pageant, a yearly outdoor production in Hemet, California. From there, she eventually got a job as a weather forecaster at the TV station KFMB in San Diego. Her big break came shortly after signing a contract with 20th Century Fox: A leading role in the scifi movie Fantastic Voyage, which made her a big star. Her most iconic role came that same year: In One Million Years, BC, she made one of the definitive fashion statements of the 60s with her fur bikini, often jokingly referred to as "mankind's first bikini." Since her peak of fame, Welch has continued to be a relevant presence in pop culture.
Jo Raquel Tejada (born September 5, 1940), better known as Raquel Welch, is an American actress, author and sex symbol. Welch came to attention as a "new-star" on the 20th Century-Fox lot in the mid-1960s. She posed iconically in an animal skin bikini for the British-release One Million Years B.C. (1966), for which she may be best known. She later starred in Bedazzled (1967), Bandolero! (1968), 100 Rifles (1969) and Myra Breckinridge (1970). Today, Welch is a noticeable face of television commercials for Foster Grant sunglasses and reading glasses.
Welch was born Jo Raquel Tejada in Chicago, Illinois, the older sister to brother James and sister Gayle. She is the daughter of Josephine Sarah (n'ee Hall, 1909-2000) with English ancestry dating back to the Mayflower, and Armando Carlos Tejada Urquizo (1911-1976), a Bolivian of Spanish descent. Her father, an aeronautical engineer, emigrated from La Paz, Bolivia at age 17; her mother was American, the daughter of architect Emery Stanford Hall and wife Clara Louise Adams.
As a young girl, she wanted to be a performer. Her first love and ambition was ballet, which she studied from ages seven to seventeen. She gave up ballet after her instructor told her that she did not have the proper body. While a student at La Jolla High School in 1958, she won the Fairest of the Fair beauty pageant at the San Diego County Fair.
She changed her surname to that of her first husband, James Welch, in 1959. That year, she played the title role in The Ramona Pageant, a yearly outdoor play at Hemet, California which is based on the novel Ramona by Helen Hunt Jackson and Bob Biloe.
She reported the weather at KFMB, a local San Diego television station. Because of her heavy schedule at the time, she decided to leave her studies at San Diego State University (then known as San Diego State College). Her first marriage broke up and she moved with her two children, Damon and Latanne, to Dallas, Texas, where she modeled for Neiman Marcu
