With $8.5 million earned, third place on the list went to Addison Rae. In the past year alone, the 21-year-old not only posted videos on TikTok but also starred in her first film, He’s All That, and signed a multicontract deal for future films with Netflix too.
Fourth place was a tie between two creators who each took home $5 million: Bella Poarch and Josh Richards. In addition to her in-app earnings, Bella signed with Warner Records, and her first single, “Build A B-tch,” became a No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts, while Josh launched multiple joint ventures including a podcast called BFFs with Barstool Sports creator Dave Portnoy.
Tied for fifth place, Kris Collins and Avani Gregg each earned over $4.75 million for their hilarious and creative videos. While Kris expanded her video production to YouTube, Avani released her memoir, Backstory: My Life So Far, in September 2021.
Now, if you need us, we’ll be uploading TikToks and hoping to go viral.
