How much is the king of YouTube currently worth?
Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, known to the world as PewDiePie, is a Swedish YouTuber. He’s also the individual content creator who has the most number of subscribers.
He started off by playing Call of Duty first in 2010 and moved on to many other things which made him known worldwide.
Currently, his net worth is estimated to be $40 million.
Life and Career
Felix was born on 24th October, 1989 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He had a passion for art and for gaming at a very young age.
Felix joined Chalmers University of Technology to study engineering, but later, he decided to drop out as he didn’t feel like he belonged there and decided to do something that made him happy. And that’s how he decided to start a gaming channel. He sold works of Photoshop to buy all his equipment, and started a channel called ‘Pewdie’, which later became ‘PewDiePie’.
PewDiePie is a good gamer, and more importantly, he is hilarious. His commentary and reactions to the games made him a star, but he did say his channel grew slowly to where it is right now – at 106 million subscribers. His channel contains more than 3500 videos.
Felix has dealt with his share of hate from the media and other personalities, but if you have been watching his videos from its early days, we can see that the man has grown a lot and doesn’t do immature stuff. He also donates to many charitable organizations, gives advices on mental health and doesn’t ‘flex’, which means shows off his wealth like many YouTubers are prone to do.
In 2019, he married his longtime partner Marzia and the couple are currently living in the United Kingdom.
