Celeb Tucker Holds Lead But Other Stars Heating Up!!

Okay--here's our current celebrity standings as of the market close on Thursday, 3/15. Overall their approach is still a lot more conservative than the majority of our non-celeb leaders - more stable companies and purchases spread across multiple stocks, and it might end up being a race to see who can lose the least. But that's probably to be expected as most of our stars admit to being a little lost when it comes to stock picking.

#1 Jonathan Tucker's portfolio is valued at $1,018,325 with a decline of $3,335 from Thursday's total of $1,021,660.

#2 Judy Gold's portfolio is valued at $1,002,470, good for second place.
