Swedish gamer named Felix Kjellberg, more commonly known as PewDiePie. His videos have made him a millionaire. His current net worth is $10 million and he is on pace to earn between $4 and $7 million dollars this year from his Youtube channel.
elixKjellberg was born Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg in Gotenburg, Sweden on the 24th of October in 1989. After graduating from high school, he went on to attend Chalmers University of Technology, where he majored in Industrial Economics and Technology. An avid gamer, he spent more time focused on making it to the next level in his favorite games than on making it to sophomore year. In 2010, he decided to launch his own YouTube Channel about gaming. His idea was simple – he’d review the games he was playing, by filming himself playing the games so that viewers could gauge for themselves whether the game was genuinely entertaining. His tendency to yell at the screen, jump around, occasionally call out obscenities, and to hold nothing back, made him required viewing for teenage gamers, very quickly. Unlike many other gaming channels, which focus on the games themselves, Kjellberg has always been more interested in giving his viewers the experience of playing the games.
.In 2012, Maker Studios caught wind of his successful channel, and offered to sign him. He quickly became the company’s most popular online personality. The scope of his popularity and influence became especially apparent in late 2013. By November 2013, his channel on YouTube had 15 million subscribers. That number mushroomed to 19 million subscribers just a month later. Between June of 2013 and December of 2013, his videos were viewed 1.3 billion times. Today PewDiePie has 29 million subscribers and his videos have been viewed a mind-boggling 5.4 billion times. Earlier this year, Maker Studios was purchased by the Walt Disney Co for $500 million dollars.
