Jillian Michaels’ Net Worth

Jillian Michaels' net worth
The internet and reality television shows have made it relatively easy to get into the spotlight. Although she has put in a lot of work, that is how Jillian Michaels got her start too. So, what is Jillian Michaels’ net worth and how did she accrue her wealth?

About Jillian Michaels

Michaels got her big break when she was asked to be a trainer on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” But before that, she had her hand in the world of physical fitness.

She holds two personal training certificates from the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association and The Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and has done so since 1993. Michaels is also a certified Kettle-bell Concepts instructor. Additionally, Michaels also holds various other health and wellness certificates and has created a certification program of her own. 

While studying at California State University, Michaels took on two jobs. She was a bartender and personal trainer throughout her college career. Michaels went on to become an agent for a Los Angeles talent agency and then, in 2002, she opened the Sky Sport and Spa. The sports and medical facility, located in Beverly Hills, was sold after a few years to make room for her career on television.

In the mid-2000s she landed her spot on “The Biggest Loser,” serving as a trainer for two seasons before leaving the show for its Australian parallel series. She served as a trainer on the Australian “Biggest Loser” from 2006 until 2008, when she returned to the States. She left the U.S. version of the television program again in 2010, returning in 2011, and departing again (for the final time) in 2014.

You may have also seen Michaels on other television shows, including a “Biggest Loser” spinoff called “Losing It With Jillian” and CBS’ “The Doctors.” She has also been fairly successful with her online workout videos, fitness plans, and other health & wellness programs.

Jillian Michaels’ Net Worth

All of this has led Jillian Michaels’ net worth to rise to an estimated $14 million, making approximately $4 million annually.

Most of her $14 million fortune was earned through her work on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” Because she was one of the main parts of the show for years, she was able to pull in a lot of money from it.

The show led to other successes in her life as well. After she gained visibility on “Biggest Loser,” Michaels was able to publish books, produce fitness DVDs, and create an online presence. These things are what have continued to keep Michaels’ net worth high.

Since 2014, she’s been out of the spotlight for the most part. Royalties from the sale of her books, Master Your Metabolism,” “Making the Cut,” “Slim for Life” and “Unlimited,” has contributed to her overall net worth significantly during this time. 

You may have also seen Michaels on her Youtube channel, where she has about 14,000 subscribers. As you may already know, Youtubers can make some serious cash through the video streaming site. This is continuously adding to Michaels’ annual income and net worth as well.

Her wealth has been impacted by property she owns as well. She sold her $6.6 million Malibu home for $8.8 million, which contributed to her net worth. The value of her current home, a $1.56 million house in the Hollywood Hills, also contributes to her wealth.

Michaels plans to continue working on her fitness career moving forward. Although there are no major projects in her future, her net worth will likely remain around $14 million for some time.

Michelle Phan’s Net Worth

Michelle Phan's net worth
Youtube was one of the first sites of its kind when it launched in 2005. Now many sites have tried copying it but none have been as successful and none pay out what Youtube does either. Many Youtube stars are making a ton of cash from their video views. Whether their channel is about makeup, gaming or simply a comedic station, Youtubers make bank. Some of them are even worth millions of dollars.

What about Youtube makeup artist Michelle Phan? Is she raking in the cash from her Youtube channel? What is Michelle Phan’s net worth and how did Youtube help her get there?

Michelle Phan’s Net Worth

Michelle Phan’s net worth is estimated to be about $50 million. Since she began taping her makeup tutorials in 2005 Phan has been bringing in a significant amount of money from Youtube as well as a number of other lucrative deals she was able to land because of her channel.

Phan was born on April 11, 1987 in Boston but lived most of her life in Tampa, Fla. She attended Ringling College of Art and Design and received an Honorary Doctorate in 2014. By then, however, Phan had already been posting about makeup tutorials and creating videos for nine years.

The 30-year-old Youtube star started out blogging on her own personal site which focused on talking about new/different makeup techniques. She also critiqued some of the makeup tutorial videos that existed on the web at the time. It wasn’t long until Phan got the vlogging bug herself though. After Buzzfeed shared  her video “How to Get Lady Gaga’s Eyes,” Phan went viral and was able to climb to over 1 million subscribers.

Since then Phan has become a Youtube advertising partner and has even launched her own multi-channel network called FAWN. Additionally, her Youtube channel was named on the “New Media Rockstars‘” Top 100 Channels at number 48.

Although each of Phan’s accomplishments on Youtube are no small feat, she didn’t get all her cash from the streaming site. What else has contributed to Michelle Phan’s net worth?

How Phan’s Youtube Career Built Wealth

Michelle Phan's net worthNot many 30-year-olds have a $50 million fortune they’re sitting on but Phan was able to manipulate Youtube to benefit her business ventures. After gathering a following Phan was able to start earning real money from Youtube.

Youtubers are able to pull in a lot of cash from their videos. You get pay $1.50 to $4 for every 1,000 views your video receives. Once you reach 1 million subscribers about 10 percent of your following will view a video when it is posted. So, essentially, Youtubers with 1 million subscribers will make $150 to $400 for every video they post. After a while, this adds up.

Another way many Youtubers, including Phan, make money is through other endorsements and deals. Phan was able to land deals with big name-brand makeup companies like L’Oreal and Lancôme. She’s also published her own book, launched her own music group and makeup subscription company.

It is fair to say that many Youtubers are doing well. Because of her ability to use Youtube and land awesome deals, Michelle Phan’s net worth is likely to continue to climb in the years to come.

What is Conor Maynard’s Net Worth?

Conor Maynard's net worth

Conor Maynard has become one of my favorite musicians to listen to in the mornings. It started out as seeing his videos on Facebook in the morning and giving them a listen to subscribing to his Youtube channel and giving his sweet, sweet voice a listen each morning.

Maynard isn’t what many people would consider a “mainstream” pop star, though you’ve probably listened to at least one of his cover songs. The 24-year-old singer has certainly made a name for himself on the web but what is Conor Maynard’s net worth and how much cash has he raked in from his online music career?

About Conor Maynard

Conor Maynard is not a United States citizen. He was born in Brighton, England on November 12, 1992. From a very young age Maynard and his parents realized that he was musically inclined. He always enjoyed singing other artist’s songs.

When he turned 14 years old Maynard decided to join the video streaming giant Youtube. His first Youtube video was of himself singing “Breathe” by Lee Carr. The rest is history. Since then he’s uploaded tons of cover songs like “Breathe.” He and his friend Anthony Melo pair up on songs from time to time as well. Maynard sings the lyrics while Melo covers and rap in the song. The pair work together perfectly.

After posting videos on Youtube consistently Maynard was finally “discovered.” Pop star Ne-Yo found Maynard on Youtube and reached out to him as a mentor. Shortly after partnering with Ne-Yo Maynard signed to EMI/Parlophone and Turn First management to become a fully-developed artist.

Now his Youtube videos get millions of views each but how much is he making? What is Conor Maynard’s net worth?

Conor Maynard’s Net Worth

Conor Maynard's net worthConor Maynard’s net worth is nothing exciting. The young star hasn’t stacked up much of the money he’s made from Youtube. Justin Bieber, who Maynard is often compared to, has a net worth of over $200 million. Maynard’s net worth sits at about $375,000. However, Maynard is continuing to grow as an artist and become more popular over time so there’s a chance his net worth could explode in the years to come.

For now though the bulk of Maynard’s overall net worth comes from the money he makes through advertising on Youtube. He’s got more than 4 million subscribers on his Youtube channel and, as his fan base grows, he continues to sell more tickets to shows and more singles. Most of Maynard’s singles have sold at least 100,000 copies each.

Conor Maynard doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon either. This year he plans to continue his work on Youtube as well as perform at a number of live shows. In addition to his cover songs he is planning to release some music of his own in 2017 as well. Each of these will likely continue to contribute to the young man’s net worth.

Maynard is similar to many of the other Youtubers out there except he is still getting his start. Don’t be surprised if you see his name or his wealth rise in the next few years.

What is Jenna Marbles’ Net Worth?

Jenna Marbles' net worth
If you’re like me (and every other millennial out there) you probably LOVE Youtube. The site went from nonexistent to the number one place to search for a video on the Web in just a few years. What is even more surprising about Youtube, however, is the number of stars the site has been able to produce and how much cash they rake in from it.

One of my favorite Youtube stars is Jenn Marbles. She, her boyfriend, her cute dogs and goofy personality all make for a great Youtube channel to subscribe to. I’ve been watching her videos for years! While I was watching one of her videos the other day (I tune in regularly), I started wondering, “what is Jenna Marbles’ net worth?”

Jenna Marbles’ Youtube Career

You may have never heard of Jenna Marbles (born Jenna Mourey) before and that’s okay. Take a second and look her up on Youtube. She’s hilarious! Marbles’ Youtube channel has basically been a place for people to go for humorous narratives and even pranks (she taped herself calling out at places she didn’t work and it was great). Jenna, unlike many others, literally blew up over night..

Her career was kickstarted (like more are being started every day) with a Youtube video. The first Jenna Marbles video titled, “How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking” was released in 2010. Within the first week of it being online it was viewed 5.3 million times.

Now Marbles uploads a new video every Wednesday or Thursday and has more than 17 million subscribers and 2.2 billion video views. And, like many other Youtube stars, she isn’t restricting her talents to the computer screen.

In fact, the 30-year-old Youtuber hosts a weekly pop countdown on Sirus XM 1 called “Youtube 15.” Marbles has also appeared in a number of television movies, television shows and recently released her own brand of dog toys called Kermie and Mr. Marbles, which is making her a bit of cash.  Additionally, Marbles is an executive producer on the set of “Maximum Ride,” a film based on a novel by James Patterson.

So, with all of her success within the past few years, what is Jenna Marbles’ net worth and how did she make her money?

Jenna Marbles’ Net Worth

Jenna Marbles' net worthJenna Marbles’ net worth sits at a comfortable $2.9 million. Considering the salaries of other top-paid Youtubers, Marbles isn’t doing too shabby! How much cash is she pulling in from Youtube though?

Youtube stars actually make a ton of cash. So, if you’re as successful as someone like Jenna Marbles then you can make millions too. Similar Youtube stars make six figures a year (or more) and once you become well known you’ll start landing other lucrative deals like Marbles did.

In addition to her Youtube income, Marbles is also raking in some cash from her dog toy venture (mentioned above) as well as her dabbling in movies (most recently producing “Maximum Ride”). She will also continue her Youtube postings in 2017, which are likely to help her score even more cash in the future!
