The biggest celebrity (quite possibly literally) to live in Orlando is the giant known as Shaq. From his time in the movie Space Jam to his time getting awards for sports, the entrepreneur-athlete-actor DJ has a lot to be proud of.
One of the things he’s famous for is owning multiple properties in America’s Southeast. One of his most treasured houses is in Orlando. It’s a home that’s just as big as he is, and from what we hear, he’s a local legend.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Carrot Top was everywhere. The famously orange-haired comedian can prop up any conversation with his antics if you get our drift. In recent years, he’s had residencies in Las Vegas.
When he’s not doing comedy tours, he’s living up in sunny Orlando. He’s known for his Winter Park mansion that overlooks the water. What a view!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have heard of Wesley Snipes. The A-list actor has an IMDB page that is chock-full of amazing roles. Like many other glitterati in his field, he allegedly has multiple properties that make it easy for him to travel from place to place.
One of his main residences is in Orlando, and that makes perfect sense. After all, he was born here. Why wouldn’t he want to go back home after he made his imprint on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?
Joey Fatone is also one of the biggest celebrities who lives in Orlando. If you remember N*SYNC, you probably remember this 90s heartthrob. Joey Fatone is another multi-property owner who has a home in Orlando, followed up by a home that is out-of-state.
Though he’s occasionally been spotted with the cast of Impractical Jokers, Fatone typically stays at home, enjoying the sunny weather right near Disneyland. His home has a grotto, a sushi bar, and an incredible layout.
Mark Tremonti has an incredible array of hits under his belt. As the lead guitarist of Creed and Alter Bridge, he was one of the biggest names in uplifting Christian rock of the early aughts. You have listened to his music, even if you didn’t want to.
After a long career in the rock scene, he was able to buy a truly gorgeous home. It’s located in the exclusive Windermere section of Orlando and spans over 22,000 square feet. (What does he even do with all that space?)
Vince Carter is a basketball superstar with a catchy name. His claim to fame is being one of the best dunkers in the sport’s history. Knowing how much professional sports players get paid, it’s not surprising that he would splurge on a multimillion-dollar estate.
Carter owns the #1 home in Orange County, Florida. His house spans a jaw-dropping 30,000 square feet. It has nine bedrooms, 17 baths, and an 82-foot-long pool. One would also assume that it has its own basketball court too.
You might recognize this name from the band Enation. Or, you might recognize it from his acting career as Lucky in General Hospital. Regardless of where you know him from, he’s famous, and he’s been in the spotlight for a fairly long time. (He was even almost cast as Anakin Skywalker at one point.)
Though he’s not acting as much as he once did, he still is starry-eyed as ever. He also lives in Orlando, in a gorgeous building when he’s not doing his music thing. Like many celebrity residents, he prefers his privacy, so it’s a fairly secluded building.
Kirsten Storms has a major list of movie and acting credits to boast. She was a regular recurring character in General Hospital, acted as the voice of Kim from Kim Possible, and also starred in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. She’s an acting powerhouse and a half.
One would think that Kirsten would be dead-set on staying in Hollywood with a career like hers. Nope! Not true. Kirsten is a fan of sun, sand, and awesome cultural hotspots. She prefers to stay in Orlando to heal up from her health issues and enjoy time away from the spotlight. We can’t blame her. The mansion she has is absolutely gorgeous, too.
Eric Jungmann is yet another massive fan of life in Orlando. This actor might not be as famous as Shaq, but you’ve probably seen him work. He’s been in hit shows and series like NCIS, Not Another Teen Movie, and the Netflix hit Criminal Minds.
It’s safe to say that Jungmann is still fairly busy when it comes to acting. When he’s not lighting up a Hollywood set, he’s hanging out in Orlando. Not much is known about his home, but it’s probably fabulous. According to locals, Jungmann is fairly friendly and down-to-earth. He’s regularly seen around the city doing everyday, regular people stuff.
