How Much is PewDiePie Worth?

Last updated: 1/14/18

PewDiePie is YouTube’s most popular and richest star with an estimated net worth of $35 million. With over 17 billion views and over 59 million subscribers PewDiePie has earned both titles of richest YouTuber and most popular YouTuber as of 2018.

He has set numerous growth records including subscriber growth rate. In 2014 alone, Felix had over 14 million users subscribe to his channel. Some other sources place PewDiePie’s net worth around $50 million or even as high as $90 million. These estimations are way off.


Although 2017 was a rough year with YouTube canceling his YouTube Red series, “Scare PewDiePie” and other revenue opportunities it actually didn’t hurt him at all. For one, PewDiePie still got paid for his features. Also, he is still gaining millions and millions of views. In fact, he makes sure his videos are at least 10 minutes long so that he can add another mid-roll ad which makes up for any prior losses.
