He was a TV host recognized around the world, not to mention a best-selling author and chef.

Previous reports suggested that Bourdain's worth was closer to $16 million, notes People, and that may be true after all. Bourdain, who took his own life last month at 61, left the bulk of his estate to his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane. (Read more Anthony Bourdain stories.)
