Our first-ever ranking of the richest Youtubers (yeah, it’s a word) uncovers 13 DIY flmmakers minting millions by commenting on videogames, serving up comedy, blogging about beauty and even dancing while playing the violin. The minimum to make the fnal cut? $2.5 million in pretax earnings in the year ending June 1, 2015. Most of that cash comes from advertisements, but some of these stars are diversifying into traditional television and movies—and a few even have their own product lines, selling everything from sweatshirts to eyeliner. Six of the biggest earners gathered in the Youtube Space LA—A massive 41,000-square-foot complex of production studios, editing spaces and recording booths that occupies a former airport—in midSeptember.
