If you are a fan of e-sports, gaming and potentially watch a game stream from time to time, chances are you have heard of Karl Jacobs. With more than 3 million subscribers and rising out of MrBeast's YouTube channel, Karl grew into the most popular Twitch streamer in a matter of months.
There’s one question everybody wants answered: How does Karl earn money? Only Karl really knows for sure, but we can make some really good forecasts using YouTube data.
Our website, Net Worth Spot, uses YouTube viewership data to estimate Karl's net worth.
However, since we're only considering YouTube viewership data, Karl's net worth is likely much higher than our estimate. When we consider many income sources, such as a salary Karl receives working with MrBeast, prize money he wins in challenges, as well as sponsorships, Karl Jacobs' net worth could be as high as $4.4 million.
Many fans wonder how much does Karl Jacobs earn?
When we look at the past 30 days, Karl's channel receives 13.09 million views each month and more than 436.17 thousand views each day.
Monetized YouTube channels collect income by playing ads for every one thousand video views. On average, YouTube channels earn between $3 to $7 for every one thousand video views. Using these estimates, we can estimate that Karl earns $52.34 thousand a month, reaching $785.1 thousand a year.
$785.1 thousand a year may be a low estimate though. If Karl Jacobs earns on the higher end, YouTube advertising revenue could drive over $1.41 million a year for Karl.
Karl likely has additional revenue sources too, including working with MrBeast and sponsorships.
Karl Jacobs was born on July 19, 1998 in North Carolina. He has two siblings: a sister, Corry and a brother named Sean. He has stated he suffers with ADHD
During his teens, Karl has attended Fort Dorchester High School, where he graduated in 2016. He also started streaming video games around the same time. He then went on to attend Portland Community College, where he studied multimedia for two years. His steady rise to fame began in 2018, just five weeks before his college graduation. Karl got a job offer as an editor for MrBeast's crew, which he decided to take.
Karl got his opportunity handed to him when he was invited to work as an editor for the YouTube channel of MrBeast's brother, MrBro. He quickly moved up through the ranks, to become the Lead Cameraman, to then progress to directing, to finally appearing in actual videos. Karl said he used his editing experience to know what he would need to do to make the final cut when appearing in a MrBeast video. And it worked.
When MrBro's channel went on a hiatus, Karl joined the editing team for MrBeast. While rising through the ranks, he befriended Chris, one of MrBeast's close friends, who decided to invite Karl for a minor role in one of his videos, which was a major success. Thanks to his streaming and editing experience, Karl knew very well how to make himself entertaining, which kickstarted his popularity in the crew and caused him to become a regular member of the cast.
Despite of appearing in MrBeast's videos, Karl still worked hard on his own projects. He used his free time from appearing in videos to stream himself playing games on Twitch, slowly building his popularity. His next opportunity came up during filling in for Chris in a MrBeast video, where they were joined by Dream, one of the most popular streamers in the world. Quickly becoming friends, Dream then invited Karl to become a part of his Dream SMP Minecraft server. This was the moment that changed Karls's career forever. Dream SMP is a real-time semi-scripted almost-cinematic universe played out though Minecraft by famous streamers. Although Karl joined the server quite late into the story, this next move propelled his careers further than ever. Karl used his personal passion with worldbuilding to expand on the universe's lore in his side-stream, "Tales from the SMP". This became a massive success, granting Karl the exposure needed, solidifying a massive community around the stream. Karl rode the fame to the top, achieving the title of the most popular streamer in the world.
Karl Jacobs became the most popular streamer in the world by taking his chances, the help of a strong community he's built around his streams, as well as some pure luck! It will be very interesting to find out which direction will he take his career next. As he stated himself, "I don't want any year to feel like a sequel!"
