Silvio Santos Biography, Wikipedia,

Abravanel is the son of Sephardic Jewish immigrants born in the Ottoman Empire. His father, Alberto Abravanel, was born in Thessalonica (today Greece) in 1897, and his mother, Rebecca Caro, was born in Smyrna (today Turkey) in 1907. Both died in Rio de Janeiro (in 1976 and 1989 respectively) and are buried side by side in the Jewish Cemetery of Caju in Rio de Janeiro city.[3] On his paternal side, Silvio Santos is a descendant of Isaac Abravanel.[4]

Abravanel worked on the streets of Rio de Janeiro as a street vendor at the age of 14. During this period, he was invited to work in a radio station, but as he made more money as a street vendor, he left the broadcaster job a month later.[3] Later he went to São Paulo and after taking several different jobs that included prize raffling, he got a part on a television show that was a success. About the same time he bought the company (Baú da Felicidade pt) and in a short time expanded the leading brand of the group, which would be the starting point for Silvio to become one of the main names of Brazilian media.[5]

With a net worth of US$3.2 billion, Santos is the single biggest individual/natural person taxpayer in Brazil.[6] In 1976, he started to fight for the rights of having his own television network, as he wanted to expand his prizes raffling.[7] In 1981, he finally obtained permission to operate what would become TVS, in São Paulo. The TV channel expanded very quickly and became what today is known as SBT (acronym for Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão, translation: “Brazilian Television System”), a brand that would be widespread throughout the country by the end of the 80s and early 90s.[7]

Santos also tried to get involved in politics and ran for president in 1989.[7] In 2008, Grupo Silvio Santos turned 50 and consisted of 44 companies, with ventures that ranged from agribusiness to banks and hotels.
