A 7-year-old toy reviewer has become YouTube's highest-earning star, making $29.8 million in one year. Currently, Ryan has 17 million subscribers and a total of 26 billion lifetime views.
Forbes is reporting that Ryan ToysReview, a household run YouTube channel, made $22 million (155 crores) pre-tax between June 2017-2018. Forbes notes that, not surprisingly, Ryan's fans are mostly other elementary school-aged kids.
Videos are posted most days and one promoting a blue giant mystery egg bearing Ryan's face has had more than a million views since Sunday.
The Minecraft specialist topped Forbes's list past year but has since slipped a few places down the top spot.
Ryan, from Ryan ToysReview, made the hefty sum between June 2017 and June 2018.
Jake Paul was beaten out by child YouTube star RyanToysReview, who topped his earnings by half a million dollars at $22 million.
"I am entertaining and I am amusing", Ryan recently said in an NBC interview, explaining the popularity that has led him to become a mini-millionaire.
The remaining $1 million came from sponsored posts. PewDiePie still has the most-subscribed YouTube channel, for now, in earnings despite all that. Ryan even has an agreement with Walmart for a special toy line called "Ryan's World", which is sold exclusively in over 2,500 stores across the US.
Although Jake beat out his older brother, Logan Paul (who sits at the number 10 spot, just underneath YouTube king Felix 'PewDiePie Kjellberg), he wasn't too happy with his high placement - especially concerning who he lost to.
Further down the list, makeup artist and fellow fan of the N-word Jeffree Star sits at #5 with USA $18 million ($24,583,600), thanks to their successful cosmetic line.
Sports crew Duke Perfect made £15.7m, while Daniel Middleton, a British gamer who plays Minecraft, came fourth with £14.5m.
