Believe It Or Not, These 10 YouTube Celebrities Are Making Millions





Gone are the days when people can tell you that creating those “stupid YouTube videos” is a complete waste of time. These days, you can actually earn millions if you hit the right notes and, of course, have a multitude of followers.

Several blog entries ago, we shared with you about CaptainSparklez or Jordan Maron in real life. This 23-year-old guy just purchased a hilltop mansion in Hollywood Hills worth $4.5 million. His main source of income? Posting Minecraft videos on YouTube.
