A new report claims to have ranked the top 10 highest-earning YouTubers per video posted, with surprising names among the top, and some of the platforms biggest stars nowhere to be found.

YouTube has obviously become a generous source of revenue over the years, with creators becoming multi-millionaires off of the back of their work with the platform, whether that comes through ad revenue, sponsorships or the opportunities that come as a result.

But, obviously, some earn more than others. You might look at the likes of PewDiePie, MrBeast and David Dobrik to be among the highest earners – but that isn’t the case at all, according to this report.

PewDiePie is the most subscribed YouTuber by far – but fails to make the top 10.

According to this report by CashLady, the highest-earning YouTuber per video is actually Vlad and Nikita – a couple of children who have 35.4m subscribers and get millions of views on videos of them playing with various toys. The report suggests that they earn over $300,000 per video

Elsewhere in the top 10 is Dude Perfect in second, Lele Pons in fifth, Liza Koshy in sixth and James Charles at 10th.

The full top 10, and their estimated earnings per video, is as follows:

  1. Vlad and Nikita ($312.3k)
  2. Dude Perfect ($301.3k)
  3. Like Nastya ($258.5k)
  4. TheOdd1sOut ($168k)
  5. Lele Pons ($157.7k)
  6. Liza Koshy ($133k)
  7. Kids Diana Show ($126.9k)
  8. Collins Key ($120.9k)
  9. Toys and Little Gaby ($89.3k)
  10. James Charles ($79.8k)
YouTube: Vlad and Nikita
Vlad and Nikita are 6 and 4 years old respectively and are allegedly raking in a ludicrous amount of money.

Of course, we can’t verify that these figures are completely accurate, but CashLady has used estimated earnings taken from Influencer Marketing Hub’s YouTube Money Calculator, which at least shows that there is some research put into it.

Elsewhere in the list, you’ve got the likes of Jeffree Star at 16th, MrBeast at 17th and Logan Paul at 24th.

Whether or not this ranking is completely accurate, it likely gives some indication of what some of these content creators are earning – and Vlad and Nikita might be set for life before they even hit their teens.


Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan had “came to [their] room, drunk” and “massaged [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also admitted he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
