The article uses information from Petey Vid’s blog, in which he calculated just how much money per minute each YouTube star makes. The overall amount of money made is divided by how many minutes of content they uploaded in 2018 to work out the final values, and they are eye-watering.  

YouTube: PewDiePie/Instagram: Logan PaulPewDiePie and Logan Paul are two of the biggest YouTubers in the world.

The most notable on the list is probably Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, the only individual content creator on YouTube to have over 100 million subscribers.

According to Petey’s calculations, PewDiePie made an incredible $3,319 per minute of video content he uploaded to YouTube during 2018. This means that a ten-minute video from the Swede would earn him an average of $33,319, or £27,122.

For comparison, the average annual salary in the UK is £29,000. PewDiePie earns just shy of that from a ten minute YouTube video. 

Petey VidThe Swede’s YouTube earnings could be higher, had he not been involved in controversies over his language.

However, PewDiePie’s numbers pale in comparison to those of the Paul brothers. The American YouTubers are never far from controversy, but that doesn’t seem to have affected their income.

Jake Paul earned $21.5 million over 2018, in just over 2,500 minutes of YouTube content. This puts his incredible earnings at $8,511 per minute of YouTube video.

However, he is beaten by his older brother Logan, who earned a whopping $11,688 per minute of YouTube content he uploaded – over three times more than YouTube King PewDiePie.

The most lucrative statistics provided by Petey go to Dude Perfect, a US sports entertainment group consisting of 5 individual members. They generated $20 million in just 253 minutes of uploaded content. This puts the amount of money earned per minute at a mind-blowing $85,026. That’s nearly double the average annual US salary, in just a minute of content.

Other figures on the list include Jeffree Star ($10,077 per minute), Markiplier ($1,393 per minute) and Jacksepticeye ($1,075 per minute). It says something about the incredible incomes on the list that the lowest-earning is still upwards of $1,000 per minute of YouTube content. 

It goes to show how successful it is possible to be when passionate video makers are well supported, and dedicated to their craft.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
