A viral online questionnaire has revealed the surprising signs a person may be rich in Australia in 2023, and how to know if you are perceived as a ‘trashy’.
Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, who both earn an estimated $5M-per-year each, took the quiz live on-air during their KIIS FM show on Monday, and were left rather surprised by their results.
According to the test, a person who produces movies or TV shows is more likely to be considered rich.
The same is said for people who fly via private jet, or who sit in first class when on a commercial flight.
Wealthy people are also more likely to have a nanny or housekeeper, use a credit card with no limit, own a Range Rover, or snort cocaine.

Other signs of wealth include having a second marriage, signing a prenuptial agreement, owning pearl necklaces or cufflinks, and using big and impressive words.
Being ‘obsessed with Africa’ – whether it be ‘saving’ poverty-stricken Africans or going on safari – is apparently another sign of affluence, as is using cosmetic creams from the luxury skincare brand Augustinus Bader.
Owning rare or expensive books, visiting private islands, wearing designer clothes, having a degree from a prestigious or international university and even hiring escorts are also on the list.

Other tell-tale signs of deep pockets include owning a Swiss bank account, knowing how to sail, hiring personal body guards and security, having a financial adviser or lawyer, owning a mud room or wet room in your home, and using a valet for shopping.
Owning inherited fine jewellery is also a sign of wealth.
Wearing Ralph Lauren cardigans draped over your shoulders is also a sign of wealth, according to the quiz.

The quiz also gave a description of someone who would be considered ‘trashy rich’ – a category in which both Jackie and Kyle fell after tallying up their results.
‘Your life is defined by designer brands, fast cars and private jets,’ the quiz reads.
‘You allude wealth with every step you take, and think money is the answer to everything. People roll their eyes at your not-so-subtle brags and call you a ‘cashed-up bogan.’
Both Kyle and Jackie fared well in the test- each ticking off enough signs to put them in them firmly into ‘rich’ category.
Kyle, who previously boasted about his $100M business empire, answered ‘yes’ to producing TV shows, as he previously created the successful Amazon Prime series Luxe Listings Sydney.

The pair, who both have one child, also hire a nanny and housekeeper to make their lives easier.

Kyle, who recently married his second wife Tegan Kynaston, explained: ‘No, I said no to that. I didn’t want a prenuptial agreement, because it’s for love.’
Jackie, who split from her second husband Lee Henderson in 2018, agreed, saying: ‘I’ve never done a prenup.’
Hilariously, Kyle was left feeling sheepish after learning that wearing a Ralph Lauren cardigan around his shoulders was a sign of wealth, given that he was wearing that exact garment during the segment.
