The Highest Earning YouTuber This Year Is 8-Year-Old Ryan Kaji Who Raked In $37 Million
YouTube child star Ryan Kaji is better known to his 23 million subscribers as Ryan’s World – a toy reviewing channel with feedback straight from the kid himself.
His channel is so successful that this 8-year-old has taken out the top spot on Forbes’ list of the highest earning YouTubers. Two years in a row.
The kid earned US$26 million in 2019 – that’s approximately AU$37.68 million. THINK OF ALL THE TOYS!
This bona fide genre of celebrities seems to be raking in the serious big bucks, with Dude Perfect coming in at #2 with US$20 million.
But third place was Anastasia Radzinskaya at US$18 million. And she, dear friends, is only 5 years old.
There’s something to be said for the platform’s influence on viewers. Maybe it’s the genuineness their videos can create or the sheer innovation.
Goddamn kids running the world!
We’re just going to cry silent tears under our doona covers for a little while as we come to terms with the fact that single-digit-year-olds have more money this year than we will in our whole lifetime.
It’s cool, it’s cool, everything is totally fine.
Might just go buy a Christmas present to ourselves and grab a camera to start our own channel. Plz comment, like and subscribe.
