YouTube giant Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach recently featured in a ‘WIRED Autocomplete Interview’, discussing his net worth and many other aspects of his life.

WIRED Autocomplete Interviews are nothing new to YouTube, often getting millions of views and giving insights into the lives of some of the biggest celebrities in the world, such as Daniel Radcliffe, Terry Crews and Mila Kunis.

However, a noticeable trend in recent months has been the inclusion of many internet stars, such as Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and YouTuber David Dobrik, who both featured in December of 2018. The video featuring Ninja quickly became a hot topic, as its 200,000 dislikes make it one of the most disliked non-music videos on YouTube. 

YouTube/MarkiplierMarkiplier has over 23 million subscribers on YouTube, making him one of the site’s most popular content creators.

Markiplier’s WIRED installment was released on March 21, and asked him about his real name, net worth and why he doesn’t drink alcohol, among other things. The YouTuber revealed that his net worth is “probably less than the estimates say”.

“It’s more than I deserve,” he said, “way, way more than I deserve. I live very comfortably, and that’s actually something I wrestle with a lot.” The American goes on to say that he is fairly careful with how he spends money, and that he donates a lot to charities.

For reference, ‘Celebrity Net Worth’ estimates his net worth at $24 million dollars. Other topics covered in the video include why his first YouTube channel was banned, who edits his videos and why he had medical surgery. 

It also adds to increasing reputation of internet celebrities among the mainstream media, as more recognition is given to the platform as a profession.

TikTok star roasted by Detroit Lions for quitting shaved head challenge

TikTok continues to pump out some of the net’s hottest challenges, but one user has gone viral for not keeping up her end of the bargain — even after receiving comments from the Detroit Lions.

TikTok is the net’s most viral video platform for a reason; having pumped out such hits as the ‘Savage’ and ‘Say so’ dances, among other memes, the app has become an online sensation in the past two years.

However, it’s for more than just dancing and lip syncing; some users have begun calling out certain celebrities, sports teams and brands with a unique challenge, with such premises as: “If [X] comments on this post, then I’ll do [Y.]”

For one TikToker, this meant shaving off her entire head of long, blonde hair if the Detroit Lions decided to comment on her video.

Unfortunately for her, they did; as did the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Mariners, all top-tier sports teams with huge fan followings.

Despite getting the attention she’d hoped for, it doesn’t look like the TikToker — going by the username ‘kenzie’ — held up her end of the deal.

In a response video on December 1, Kenzie admitted that she didn’t have the desire to shave her head, and instead decided to shave that of one of her male friends.

“Didn’t think it would blow up and really didn’t wanna have a pixie cut for the next three years,” Kenzie explained in the video’s caption.

Needless to say, she was promptly roasted by the sports teams who had commented on her previous video as well as random onlookers, who made sure to voice their displeasure in the comments section.

“Disappointed but not surprised,” the Tampa Bay Rays said.

“You got all those likes AND got noticed by the Detroit Lions and didn’t even live up to your word,” a commenter wrote. “That’s embarrassing.”

However, the Detroit Lions themselves had a hilarious response, indicating that their “respect” had shifted from Kenzie to the poor soul she’d recruited for her head-shaving mishap.

All in all, it seems that this is a good lesson in keeping your end of a deal — or rather, being a bit more realistic about what you’re willing to do for views.
