A whopping $29.5 million was earned by Ryan, who is from Texas in the United States according to Forbes estimates. 

In March 2015, Ryan began making videos on YouTube, and now his ‘Ryan’s World’ YouTube channel has gross more than 41.7 million subscribers.

A major portion of Kaji’s fortune comes from licensing deals on more than 5,000 Ryan’s World products, ranging from masks and walkie talkies to bedroom furniture and action figures.

His channel is famous for reviewing videos of toys and games, unboxing, as well as DIY science experiments, with 12.2 billion views.

Ryan’s parents are successful YouTubers, also. Together, they have nine distinct YouTube channels, each with a significant number of subscribers and various views.

At Target, Amazon, and Walmart, which made him $200 million in revenue last year, and a Nickelodeon series called Ryan’s Mystery Playdate.

According to Forbes, the 9year old boy now has a line of branded merchandise-toys, backpacks, toothpaste, more.

‘Huge Eggs Surprise Toy Challenge’ is one of Ryan’s most-watched videos on YouTube.

The Forbes estimates are based on pre-tax earnings from June 1, 2019, to June 1, 2020, and do not account for fees for agents, executives, and lawyers.

This is not the first time Ryan has topped the list of YouTube’s highest-paid.  Ryan, in 2018 and 2019, led the list as well.

Some new names have appeared on the list, including Mr. Beast, who entered the ranking with $24 million in second place, followed by Dude Perfect with $23 million, Rhett and Connection with $20 million, and Markiplier with $19.5 million in fifth place.

Although Jeffree Star still made the top ten this year, with $15 million, he fell from the fifth position in 2019 with $17 million to 10th in 2020.
