TikTok has just about taken over the internet in recent years and, as a result, some of the most popular names on the app are earning millions.

Influencers such as Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae & Noah Beck have become celebrities in their own right thanks to their insane growth on the app.

They now comfortably muddle in with some major celebrities. Rae, for example, has a well-documented friendship with Kourtney Kardashian.

But, this doesn’t necessarily mean that these are the highest earners on TikTok. This new report from ravereviews puts together data collected from various sources, and reveals the highest TikTok earners.

These earnings are based on ads posted to TikTok by each creator. Michael Le made the most ads in 2020, with 92, which was 30 more than the next most frequent advertiser, Joe Albanese.

Charli D’Amelio only posted 34 ads to TikTok in 2020. If she posted the same number as Michael Le, she could have reached almost $50m earned from ads alone.
