With these lines, the new 'RHODubai' star has already grabbed our attention. Originally hailing from Boston, Brooks moved to Dubai to chase her dreams. She was the executive director of Rent DXB real estate for four years.

Brooks' net worth has been estimated to be between $80,000- $85,000, the bulk of which comes from her successful career in the real estate space.
Chanel Ayan: $1 Million
As the first Black supermodel of Dubai, Chanel Ayan, born Ayan Pillott, is no stranger to Dubai's high society. Ayan, who was born and raised in Kenya, moved to Brazil at the tender age of 17 to pursue a career in modeling. While in Brazil, she met her American husband Lucas Salves. After spending a few years in America, the couple moved to Dubai.
In an interview with Punch, she shared, "When I moved to Dubai 14 years ago there was no black modeling in Dubai. I am the first black model to ever appear on magazine covers in Dubai. I have been in Vogue countless times, including Vogue Italia and Vogue US. I did shows that were covered on CNN worldwide. I have done every brand in Dubai. I have done Prada, I’m the face of Piaget in the Middle East, face of Channel. I’m the only black girl that did Vogue. I have done big brands like Apple, Van Cleef, and Piaget. It’s amazing to wear a million dollars earrings and 10 million dollars chains. I was the first black to ever do all these in the Middle East." Her passion for her modeling career appears to have paid off as the stunning supermodel has managed to amass a net worth of a cool $1 million!
