Silicon Valley gadabout and fencing enthusiast Mark Zuckerberg has fallen 22 spots in Forbes‘ annual list of the Richest People in America. This time last year, the Facebook founder was sitting pretty at number 14, with a net worth of $17.5 billion. In the new list, however, Zuckerberg’s net worth is listed at a measly $9.4 billion, where he’s forced to rub shoulders with blue-collar average nobodies like Steve Cohen and Charles Ergen. Adding further insult to injury, Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page — Zuckerberg’s sworn enemies, presumably — have added almost $4 billion to their respective coffers and are currently tied for 13th place. Zuckerberg is actually tied with News Corp. overlord and beloved Twitter den mom Rupert Murdoch.
