Creators like Zoe Sugg, Alfie Deyes, Tyler Oakley, and PewDiePie all owe the start of their careers to their once-unknown YouTube channels. Now, they make a living off of creating videos, and they get paid a ton of money for content.
PewDiePie - $12 Million
PewDiePie is one of the most subscribed channels that isn't managed by YouTube itself. He got his start by streaming gameplay walkthroughs and highlight reels, but he stands out for his weird sense of humor. He makes between $43K and $694K a month, with a staggering net worth of $12 million.
Dude Perfect - $14 Million
The gist of this channel is just a bunch of guys filming themselves doing extreme sport tricks. They hit baseballs of moving trucks, play darts on jumbo boards, and even have dirt bike battles all to rack up the views. In total, they have an estimated 6 billion views and are one of the platform's top-paid creators with a net worth of $14 million.
