What Is Zach King's Net Worth In 2022?

Illusionist and online magician Zach King has amassed a significant following through his decade-spanning internet career and now fans want to know how that has impacted him financially. 

Born in Portland, Oregon, King was home-schooled and began editing videos at the age of 14.

In 2008 he set up a website providing tips about editing software which built him an audience large enough to warrant selling seminars and lessons which helped him fund university.

In 2011, King posted a video titled “Jedi Kittens” which managed to get over one million views in just three days, kick-starting his YouTube career.


He made two sequels to “Jedi Kittens” which have over 20 million views apiece.

King truly flourished on the video creating app Vine, where he would create 6 second illusions which involved much more production and planning than videos from other creators on the site.

Simultaneously, King was garnering massive followings on YouTube and Vine which he later transferred to TikTok when Vine closed down.

King has the first and third most viewed videos across the entirety of TikTok, with his most popular video acquiring a jaw-dropping 2.2 billion views!


King has over 68 million followers on TikTok and 14 million followers on YouTube. 

Considering his enormous audience and his lengthy career at the peak of internet culture, fans are wondering how much the star earns and what his net worth is in 2022?

What Is Zach King’s Net Worth?

Zach King is worth $5 million (£4.09 million) in 2022, according to Bio Overview.


The vast majority of his capital has been generated from his efforts on YouTube, with brand deals and sponsorships being his primary source of income.

Though he does receive money from TikTok, the creator revenue algorithm is notoriously poor on this platform and creators get paid very little per 1,000 views.

King actually spoke on how he generates income in his most recent YouTube video, claiming that he doesn’t make money like most YouTubers as his audience is spread across the globe, damaging revenue from adverts.

Instead he stated that most of his funding comes from “brand sponsorships”.


What Is Zach King’s Salary?

King rakes in more than a whopping $450,000 (£368,000) annually, although this depends on how well his videos do in any given year.

He also recycles a lot of his income by spending it on his video production so it’s far more difficult to gauge his concrete income. 

King has spoken about his videos costing up to “$10,000 per second” and taking up to 9 months to film.
