The list of the world's highest-paid models list, revealed by Forbes Monday, is led again by veteran Gisele Bundchen, who pulled in a whopping $47 million in appearances and endorsements. Doutzen Kroes and Adrianna Lima are next, but far behind.

To put it in football terms, since 34-year-old Bundchen is married to New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, the Brazilian model leads the annual list in a blowout, making $39 million more than Kroes and Lima, the second-highest paid models on the list, who both made $8 million each, according to Forbes.

Forbes writer Natalie Robehmed pointed out that Bundchen has not only led the list since 2002, but she also continues to be the main breadwinner in her household, even outpacing Brady's $31.3 million paycheck from the Patriots.

"The announcement comes as little surprise, especially since the Brazilian beauty has been a major campaign star as of late, appearing in ads for H&M, Stuart Weitzman, Balenciaga and Sonia Rykiel to name a few," wrote Stephanie Chan of The Hollywood Reporter. "Also, thanks to her deal with Grendene, the catwalk queen receives a cut of the sales from the Ipanema jelly sandals she designed for the Brazilian brand."

According to the website Dutch News, becoming a super model interrupted Kroes childhood plans of becoming a speed skater. The Netherlands native, 29, who is married to DJ Sunnery James, is a Victoria Secrets model, like Lima.

Lima, 33, who is also from Brazil, signed on with Maybelline New York this year, where she served as the face of the product from 2003 to 2009, according to the Daily Mail.

Kate Moss and Kate Upton, the girlfriend of another high-profile athlete in Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander, were tied for fourth place making $7 million each, along with Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen. Alessandra Ambrosio and Hilary Rhoda pulled in $5 million over the past year, as well.

Being a highly-paid supermodel, though, doesn't allow you dress in your favorite team's uniform, as Upton complained on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" this month that the New York Yankees told her she could not where Tigers gear at Yankee Stadium during a recent game, reported the New York Post.

Four models tied the No. 10 spot on the list making $4 million each: Natalie Vodianova, Carolyn Murphy, Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn.
