Seven-year-old boy tops list of YouTube's highest earners

Seven-year-old boy tops list of YouTube's highest earners

Jake Paul was beaten out by child YouTube star RyanToysReview, who topped his earnings by half a million dollars at $22 million. The video featured Ryan opening and reviewing a box containing more than 100 toys from Pixar's Cars series.

The channel has racked up 26 billion views and 17.3 million followers since launching in March 2015 with a homemade video of Ryan playing with Lego.

"I'm entertaining and I'm amusing", Ryan recently told NBC interview, explaining his appeal.

The figures are calculated before tax, and do not include amounts paid to lawyers and agents, Forbes said.

A video posted of Ryan losing his first tooth has been watched 2.6 million times in five days.

Of course, RyanToysReview isn't the sole property of seven-year-old Ryan, himself - the channel is run by his mother and father, who also appear in his videos, along with his twin sisters.

Amid #MeToo, radio station nixes ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’
The song became well known after being used in the 1949 film Neptune's Daughter starring Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban. A Facebook poll on the radio station's page, which displays results after a respondent casts their vote, showed otherwise.

While Jake Paul moved up six places to second, his brother Logan Paul has tumbled down the Forbes rankings this year to 10th place with $14.5m - still $3m more than 2017.

But he still earned nearly $20m, three million more than in 2017.

Logan was forced to apologise in January after accidently showing the body of an apparent suicide victim in Japan in one of his videos.

Sports entertainment group Dude Perfect made £15.7m and Daniel Middleton, who specialises in the popular Minecraft game, was fourth with £14.5m.

Google, which owns YouTube, removed Paul's channels from its Google Preferred programme, where brands sell ads on the platform's top 5 percent of content creators, in the wake of the controversy.
