Highest-Paid YouTube Star Is 7 Years Old

Highest-Paid YouTube Star Is 7 Years Old

Ryan of the channel Ryan ToysReview is a 7-year-old first-grader who, yep, opens, plays with, and reviews toys in his super-popular videos; he has more than 17.3 million followers. After looking at data and talking with industry experts, Forbes estimates that from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018, Ryan earned $22 million. Despite their large fanbases, it looks like Jake's infamously hawked merchandise can't top Ryan's collectible toy line, which is available for purchase at Wal-Marts across the country.

A video in which Ryan, then five or six-years-old, finds toy eggs on an inflatable water slide has been viewed 1.6 billion times.

Coming in a close second on the list was former Disney actor Jake Paul, who earned a cool $29.3m during the same period.

Forbes measured pre-tax earnings from 1 June 2017 to 1 June 2018, without fees for agents, managers and lawyers being deducted.

Ryan of the Ryan ToysReview channel is topping this year's Forbes list, released Monday. The YouTube channel was launched in March 2015 and caters to the kids around the world by attracting hundreds and thousands of views on each video.

G-20 communique admits global system is flawed, in nod to Trump
The gathering's final statement, however, did not mention protectionism after negotiators said the USA objected to the wording. A senior White House official praised the document, particularly the language calling for changes to the WTO and global trade.

Asked by NBC why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan - who is now 8 - replied: "Because I'm entertaining and I'm amusing". Forbes notes that, not surprisingly, Ryan's fans are mostly other elementary school-aged kids.

Ryan, whose last name hasn't been made public to protect his identity, beat top YouTubers such as Logan Paul, Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie fame) and Markiplier. It is "the result not only of how few deals Ryan (or his family) chooses to accept, but also the fact that his pint-sized demographic isn't exactly all that flush".

The toys featured in one of the channel's videos can sell out instantly.

As a minor, 15 per cent of his earnings are funnelled to what's called a Coogan account.
