YouTuber PewDiePie Says His Net Worth Is 'Definitely More Than $20 Million'

YouTuber PewDiePie Says His Net Worth Is 'Definitely More Than $20 Million'

PewDiePie has revealed that his net worth is 'definitely' more than $20 million (£15.3m) in his new YouTube video.

The YouTuber - real name Felix Kjellberg - was doing his two yearly Google of himself when he touched upon the financial side of his success.

He started by changing his height from 180 centimetres to 181cm and laughing about the 'fact' that he made a 'graphic novel' in 2017 which he wasn't even aware of.

He went on to read from a website claiming that he earns $3,400 (£2,600) per hour, saying: "I don't know exactly how much I make per day but it doesn't seem too far off which is pretty crazy when you think about it.

"Money is such an interesting topic for me because I obviously didn't start YouTube to make money. A sad thing I've learned is how much people value money in a way or at least the idea of money.

"People look at money as something undoubtedly good, it couldn't possibly be something negative to have money. You look at people who win the lottery and then having money fundamentally changes their whole life. Not just how they view life but how other people view them.

"That's a change in particular that I really want to protect and that's the reason why, in a way, I try to live 'modestly'. Obviously I don't but in considering how much I make I try to live modestly because I want to just live a normal life, I don't want the money to change my life. It's great to have put it can also become a problem." Sounds like a crying shame, mate.

He continued by asking the Google question 'What is PewDiePie's net worth?' and said: "Ok, this one says $20 million, ok. I would say it's definitely more than that."

In-between spitting out some rice (nice), the 29-year-old carried on with his video, saying: "These sites don't know how much we make so it's always kind of annoying when people accept these as face value, they're like 'oh my God he makes this much money, that's crazy'."

Then PewDiePie went on to answer the question 'Which YouTuber has the most subscribers?' He posted a real-time version of the subscriber lead with T-Series leading by more than 100,000.

After an agonising cry out, the YouTuber said: "Don't Google that, next Google please."

Moving swiftly on...
