It’s time for the year-end inventory again.
No, “Forbes” recently announced the ranking of the highest paid YouTube anchors in 2020:
The C-place is still the familiar little boy? ? ?
This 9-year-old boy named Ryan Kaji topped the list with an astonishing annual income of 29.5 million U.S. dollars (approximately RMB 193 million), and his videos received 12.2 billion views in a year.
Not only that, this is the third consecutive year he won the championship…
Let’s get to know this “other people’s child” together:
This little boy named Ryan Kaji can be guessed by looking at the name. He is an Asian little boy, his father is from Japan, and his mother is a descendant of Vietnamese immigrants.
Currently Ryan lives with his father, mother and twin sisters (Kate and Emma) in a large house in Texas, USA. This house is also where most of Ryan’s videos were shot↓
(Ryan and sisters are with grandmother)
Like all the children in the world, Ryan Kaji likes to slide on slides, ride tricycles and play with toys since he was a child; just like most parents, Ryan’s mother likes to capture and share the moments of children playing.
Mom said that at that time Ryan’s favorite was “Locomotive Thomas.”
One day in 2015, 4-year-old Ryan suddenly asked her mother, “Why are other kids playing YouTube, but I don’t?”
So, my mother helped Ryan create his own channel on YouTube.
At the beginning, this channel was called Ryan Toys Review (Ryan Toys Review), the content is the same as the name, mainly is some unpacking videos of toys: In the beginning, Ryan just opened one box at a time, assembled the toys and started playing… …
Emm, as expected, no one was watching.
However, Ryan and his mother did not give up easily. Four months later, the most popular video of “Ryan Toys Review” appeared:
At that time, Ryan opened a giant egg filled with Car Story series toys, and he opened the box one by one to play…
The video has been played more than 1 billion times.
Gradually, Ryan’s channel became the most popular channel on YouTube and the second most viewed channel in the world.
This video is mainly for children. It may be difficult for adults to understand why it is so popular after watching it.
But it’s different for children. In the United States, there are almost no children who don’t know him, and there are countless fans. This little “professional toy assessor” is also the “idol” in the hearts of many children around the world:
Ryan Kaji is the protagonist in my son’s favorite show. He is only 9 years old this year and made $29.5 million, becoming the highest paid YouTube blogger, my God!
It seems that Ryan has firmly grasped the huge potential group of children.
And now, Ryan’s channel currently has 27.6 million fans, and has 1 video with over 2 billion views, and an astonishing 40 videos with over 100 million views!
Really top-notch, that’s right!
Such a huge amount of traffic has also attracted the attention of many related industry giants and financial owners, and they have a lot of advertising revenue every month.
As early as 2017, Ryan Kaji had an annual income of 11 million U.S. dollars, ranking 8th in the annual list.
In 2018 and 2019, they won the championship with $22 million and $26 million respectively.
Ryan Kaji in 2020 has set his own record again, too strong!
Ryan’s mother was a middle school chemistry teacher. She quit her job in order to better manage Ryan’s video account.
She said that she would keep shooting this kind of video until Ryan didn’t want to shoot anymore, and at the same time, she would try to avoid the impact of shooting on Ryan’s study.
Ryan’s father also often appeared in video clips, playing with his son.
Now, his two younger sisters have joined in, and Ryan doesn’t have to worry about “no successor” anymore.
