Celebrity Net Worth noted that MrBeast could make a minimum of $3 million per month from YouTube ads alone.
Video ads have different CPMs in different countries, though an average video CPM may cost $5. If he earns $5 per thousand views and has 283 million views in one video, that’s equal to a whopping $1.4 million in net earnings.
Sponsorship-wise, previous reports claimed he charges $1 million per month to be a primary sponsor of his main video page.
So, he can earn a minimum of $1 million through sponsorships on his other channels.
However, these are not his holy grail but his merchandise. According to reports, half of his $54 million earnings last year came from merchandise sales.
Hence, it’s no surprise that MrBeast is now worth $25 million.
