YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is one of the site’s most successful entertainers, becoming its most-subscribed independent creator with a projected net worth in the millions — a fact he claims he’s widely judged for.

Kjellberg opened up on the topic during a video on April 21, where he reacted to Jubilee’s “Do All Millionaires Think the Same?” social experiment, which presented a small group of millionaires with a series of hard-hitting questions about their wealth.

One of the questions given to the millionaires asked them if they’d ever been judged for their money — something PewDiePie could sympathize with.

According to the YouTube star, he feels “sad” for people who judge others for their wealth, and believes that cash isn’t the key to true happiness, in the slightest.

“It just makes me sad for other people… people look at me and they’re like, ‘Oh, he doesn’t have any problems because he has money,’” he began. “So many people share the idea that money solves all your problems. …I just feel bad for people who have that mindset, because I know for a fact it isn’t true.”

YouTube star PewDiePie explained why he feels “sad” for critics who judge him for his wealth, and revealed why he feels money isn’t the key to true happiness.

Kjellberg went on to explain that, while money has significantly improved his life, he was just as happy before his rise to YouTube fame, citing his struggle starting out with now-wife Marzia.

“Sometimes, I look back on the times when I was just starting out with YouTube, and I was just making enough to pay my rent each month,” he continued. “That’s the kind of time I look back as the most happiest, when me and Marzia were in Sweden. We didn’t have a lot of money. It wasn’t easy, but we were equally happy then.”

While PewDiePie has addressed confusing reports regarding his supposed net worth in the past, the Swede has gone on record stating that it “doesn’t matter” to him in spite of rampant speculation.

Even after being robbed late last year, to PewDiePie, material wealth isn’t all that important — claiming that it’s real happiness that counts.


Top 5 Dr Disrespect ‘Doctober’ Halloween cosplays

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.


There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.


This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.


Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.


This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.


Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
