TikTok has been on the rise throughout 2020 but even YouTube star David Dobrik was shocked to hear from Addison Rae just how much money stars are actually making on the newest social media platform.

Addison is the TikTok’s second biggest personality. With over 45 million users following her, each of her videos rakes up tens of millions of views without fail. It’s safe to assume she knows the upper-limits of what’s possible on the platform.

Rae recently sat down with YouTube star David Dobrik to reveal just how much money can actually be made from all of these views.

“What is the most somebody on the app has gotten paid for one TikTok?” Dobrik asked. While he would be well aware of how much the top YouTube celebrities make for a branded video, he was taken aback by Rae’s response.

“That I’m aware of… $90,000,” she said. This deal was not for her own account, she explained, but for another star that she knows on the platform.

Branded content can be as simple as wearing a certain watch in a TikTok video.

Breaking down just how revenue comes through, they explained how it’s purely branded content that grows their income. “People think that these TikTokers get paid per post,” Dobrik addressed. In reality, unbranded content often goes without pay.

What that means is, if you see a TikToker uploading fifteen videos a day, that doesn’t specifically mean they’re making $90,000 with every one of their uploads. Strictly branded content is how that kind of money is made.

Turning the tables, Rae posed the same question to the YouTube star and host of the podcast. “What’s the most you’ve seen someone getting paid on YouTube?”

“For a 30-second plug… it’s like $500,000 for an integration on YouTube,” he responded, proving TikTok does still have a way to go to touch the big platforms.

The relevant section begins at the 14:00 mark of podcast.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these price points are for the upper echelon of content creators. Even some TikTok stars with ten million followers might not be closing $90,000 deals for singular branded video. 

If you’re curious as to who the most-followed personalities are on the platform – those who might be able to make a similar amount of money per branded video – here’s our list of the Top 20 accounts on TikTok.


Bryce Hall apologizes to Dixie D’Amelio & Noah Beck for stripper prank

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

(Topic begins at 2:48)

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
