Here are the top ten YouTube earners for 2019, according to Forbes’ estimates:
⏩Ryan Kaji – $26 million (8 years old)
⏩Dude Perfect – $20 million
⏩Anastasia Radzinskaya – $18 million
⏩Rhett and Link – $17.5 million
⏩Jeffree Star – $17 million
⏩Preston Arsement – $14 million
⏩PewDiePie – $13 million
⏩Markiplier – $13 million
⏩DanTDM – $12 million
⏩Vanoss Gaming – $11.5 million
The listing underlines the popularity of gaming-related content on YouTube, with the latter five all connected to the gaming community.
