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.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.


During his October 13 broadcast, the Canadian exploded in excitement after setting a new personal record when beating Minecraft. Celebrating, the 24-year-old called out Forsen and dared him to pass his speedrun time.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.


After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.


Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”


According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
