There were seven Bling Ring members total

The real-life Bling Ring started with only Nick Prugo and Rachel Lee. Prugo and Lee started small by stealing from cars in affluent neighborhoods before they moved on to bigger targets. Eventually, they invited more people to get involved, and there were seven total teens and young adults who helped commit the crimes. Other than Prugo and Lee, Neiers, Diana Tamayo, Courtney Ames, Johnny Ajar, and Roy Lopez Jr. all stole from celebrities’ homes at one point during the crime spree. However, Neiers claims that Lee “started it all.”
