You might not think you could earn that much just from filming yourself on YouTube and having a chat, but these guys are making serious, mega-bucks.

Take a look at the run-down.

Number one: Felix Kjellberg


Swedish YouTuber, 26-year-old Felix, behind the popular YouTube account, PewDiePie is at the number one hotspot again for a second year running. He has the most subscribers on YouTube- a crazy 49.6 million- and makes a staggering $15 million from his game-based videos.

Number two: Roman Atwood

The 33-year-old is making a sweet $8 million from his crazy online prank videos.

Number three: Lilly Singh

Better known as ‘Superwoman,’ this Canadian comedian-come-rapper is making a swish $7.5 million.

Number four: Anthony Padilla


AKA one half of the brilliant comedy-sketch-duo Smosh, he certainly has plenty to smile about as he takes home $7 million from his online platform.

In joint fifth place: Tyler Oakley and Rosanna Pansino

The podcaster and activist and popular baker each make a chill $6 million.
