For the third year in a row, the only woman on the list is a 7-year-old who makes way more than me.
Forbes reports that the woman known as "Nastya" made an estimated $28 million in ad revenue and brand deals over the course of her career. She learns basic skills, like telling time and making a to-do list, against the saturated backdrop of her enormous home. I write silly little stories in an apartment that is the size of her patio.
Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, made the most money with his video "$456,000 Squid Game In Real Life!", which has racked up 202 million views in less than two months. He made over $50 million. He spearheaded the international #TeamSeas fundraiser, which raised more than $30 million to clean up the ocean.
MrBeast staged a replica of the hit show 'Squid Game'. The video is titled "MrBeast."
Ryan Kaji, controversial brothers Jake andLogan Paul, variety show pros Link and Rhett, and trick shot magicians Dude Perfect and Preston Plays are all on the list. Unspeakable is the only newcomer to the top 10.
MrBeast, Jake Paul, and Markiplier would have made enough money to make Forbes' most recent list of the world's highest-paid celebrities. It makes you wonder what it will take to be considered a mainstream celebrity. Paul makes 90 percent of his income from boxing, and rarely posts on the internet. Boxers such as Tyson Fury and Canelo were on the celebrity list.
It's hard to ignore the fact that there are a lot of white men on the list, a trend we've seen every year since Forbes started tracking these statistics. Lilly Singh was the last woman other than Nastya to make the list. There were no women on the list in the year.
