The list: High­est-earn­ing YouTu­bers

The Irish Times - Business - - BUSINESS INTERVIEW -

We’re all go­ing to hell in a hand­cart, so why not spend a few min­utes watch­ing that hand­cart be­ing un­boxed by a mil­lion­aire brat? Be­hold, a new list by Forbes mag­a­zine of the best rev­enue self-gen­er­a­tors on Google’s YouTube. (Jack­sep­tic­eye, an Ir­ish video gamer from Athlone, came eighth with €14 mil­lion over the year to June 2018.)

5 Jef­free Star. Who? What? How? This cos­met­ics cre­ator hauled in $18 mil­lion from make-up tu­to­ri­als.

4 Daniel Mid­dle­ton. The Minecraft gamer fell three places from the top spot, but given he pulled in an es­ti­mated $18.5 mil­lion, up $2 mil­lion, he prob­a­bly won’t mind.

3 Dude Per­fect. The five dudes be­hind the US sport and stunts chan­nel re­tained third spot with $20 mil­lion.

2 Jake Paul. The Paul brother who didn’t show the body of an ap­par­ent sui­cide vic­tim in a wood on one of his videos earned $21.5 mil­lion, while the one who did (Lo­gan) fell six places to $14.5 mil­lion.

1 Ryan ToysRe­view. The seven-year-old daily toy critic has gen­er­ated $22 mil­lion on a YouTube chan­nel set up by his par­ents. That US col­lege ed­u­ca­tion must al­most be paid for by now.
