A report on the top 10 highest earning car influencers on the internet has revealed Australian YouTuber Supercar Blondie tops the list by quite some margin.

While you might think social media nowadays is dominated by gamers, celebrities and TikTok dancers, there’s actually a huge market for car influencers showing off the latest supercars, reviewing popular vehicles and giving advice.

According to this report, the top influencers are making some serious cash, too, with millions of subscribers and Instagram followers meaning certain people are having a decent payday at the end of each month.

Even American comedian and TV host Jay Leno is in on the car influencer action.

The list, which was curated and researched by GoCompare sees Supercar Blondie take the top spot by quite some margin estimating her yearly income at over $1.4m – including around £20,000 per Instagram post.

She beats out the likes of Doug DeMuro, Colin Furze and even American comedian and former late-night TV host Jay Leno, who also feature among the top earners.

Here’s the top 10 earners according to GoCompare, including how much they allegedly make per Instagram and YouTube post:

Influencer Earnings per Instagram post Earnings per YouTube video Estimated yearly income
Supercar Blondie $25,547.39 $3965.53 $1,406,440.09
Colin Furze $1,373.70 $12,106.86 $642,416.92
Dave ‘Heavy D’ Sparks $12,145.48 $307.42 $593,443.72
MontanaBlack88 $9,632.62 $2,364.76 $571,736.18
Salomondrin $10,470.24 $1,174.57 $554,934.09
ChrisFixIt $2,274.14 $8,603.24 $518,362.15
Richard Rawlings $9,632.62 $281.88 $472,476.27
Alan Enileev $8,795.00 $811.77 $457,811.02
Doug Demuro $1,080.53 $6,463.79 $359,525.34
Jay Leno $4,188.10 $2,506.80 $319,045.66

As you can see, according to the report, Blondie makes over twice as much as the next highest-earning car influencer Colin Furze, who allegedly makes around $640k a year from his YouTube and Instagram posts.

It’s hard to believe Jay Leno makes so little in comparison to other car influencers from his posts, considering his celebrity, but we imagine he’s making his fair share outside of the realms of cars.

Obviously, the list may not be completely accurate, so take it with a grain of salt, but it’s impressive nonetheless to see how well Supercar Blondie is doing for herself in the field — and she doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
