The highest paid YouTube star in 2019 earned millions … and is 8 years old


YouTube is really a money maker.

You may have heard of YouTubers as David Dobrik, Logan paul or Tana Mongeau, but it's the somewhat smaller names that generate the most money, according to Forbes. It turns out that Dobrik, Paul and Mongeau did not even decipher the list of the ten highest paid workers on the website. Instead, they were defeated by other creators, two of whom are under the age of ten.

Even more interesting is the fact that most of the leading creators were not beauty bloggers or vloggers who shared their daily lives. The list consists largely of players, except for the few toy reviewers, dare to the demons and Jeffree Star, who managed to be the only beauty blogger on the list.
