Top-earning you tubers of 2021, according to Forbes

The only 23-year-old American Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast named the highest paid you tuber of 2021, according to Forbes.
He is the new number one among you tube stars; with a total of more than ten million views for his videos, he earned of an estimated 54 million dollars ($54m) (£39m).
He has overtaken 10-year-old toy reviewer Ryan Kaji, who has topped the annual list for the past two years.
Together, the 10 best-paid YouTubers made a combined $300m (£218m) in 2021, the US magazine estimated.
Jake Paul is in second place, his first appearance in the top 10 since 2018, and his brother Logan also returns after being absent since 2017.
Minecraft player Nathan Graham, known as Unspeakable, makes the list for the first time in fifth place.
During the pandemic, lots of traditional entertainment media had a difficult time adjusting. Movies were delayed, soap opera schedules were altered and video game releases were postponed.
For YouTube, however, it was a time of boom.
Research suggests that in 2021, the platform had 2.3 billion users worldwide. YouTube says one billion hours of video content is consumed on the platform every day.
Here is the full top 10.
10. Preston Arsement
Preston Arsement grew his community largely thanks to videos centred around Minecraft, although he runs several channels on the website.
A regular on this list, he earned an estimated $16m (£11m) in 2021 – down a little from the year before, when he placed sixth.
9. Logan Paul
The controversial boxer and vlogger was last in the top 10 in 2017. He earned $18m (£13m) in 2021.
8. Dude Perfect
Comedy pranksters Dude Perfect was number three on the list in 2020. They made $20m (£14m) last year.
7. Ryan Kaji
The world’s most famous toy reviewer has dropped from the top of the tree to number seven.
In 2021, his blend of toy reviews, educational videos and family vlogs helped him earn $27m (£19m).
6. Nastya
The seven-year-old Russian has nearly 90 million subscribers on YouTube.
She started as a toy unboxer but now her vlogs and music videos are growing in popularity and her earnings have risen to $28m (£20m) in 2021.
5. Unspeakable
A new entry, the Minecraft player has been uploading to YouTube for a decade.
He sold the rights to his back catalogue to the business Spotter last year, which contributed to his earnings of $28.5m (£20m).
4. Rhett and Link
A staple of the YouTube highest earning list, the hosts of geek chat show Good Mythical Morning earned $30m (£22m) in 2021.
3. Markiplier
Another regular gaming creator, Markiplier has used his business acumen to make a successful brand of merchandise, earning $38m (£27m) last year.
2. Jake Paul
By branching out into boxing, Jake Paul has found himself back in the top 10. His high-profile fights against UFC stars helped him earn $45m (£32m) in 2021.
It’s some turnaround for the creator who was criticised alongside his bother for some of their vlogs in 2017, which many found to be in poor taste.
With more boxing plans in the pipeline for 2022, it would be no surprise to see him keep his place among YouTube’s elite on next year’s list.
1. MrBeast
YouTube’s top earner is a creator who uses stunts and pranks to delight his audience.
Last year, he recreated elements of Netflix hit Squid Game on his channel, played hide and seek in an 80,000-seater stadium and was buried underground.
His 10 billion views, alongside the MrBeast burger franchise, meant Jimmy Donaldson almost doubled his income in 2021 after ranking second on this list the previous year.
