What Is Shane Dawson’s Net Worth and How Much Does He Make on YouTube?

To those who still think of the internet as a haven of moral decadence, it may come as a surprise that it is one of the most lucrative platforms in the world which has turned several people into millionaires. One of them is Shane Dawson, who has amassed a considerable net worth from his YouTube career as the owner of the channel, shane.

The native of Long Beach, California has been one of the many success stories of the often-controversial video sharing platform. Let’s discuss his net worth and how much of it comes from YouTube.

Shane Dawson’s Net Worth

As of this writing, it is believed that Shane Dawson has a net worth of $12 million. He made a major bulk of his wealth through YouTube, where he has over five billion views and over 22 million subscribers. Also, he has made quite a fortune from his published books, I Hate Myselfie and It Gets Worse, both of which featured on the New York Times best-selling books.

Shane Dawson is also an actor who has appeared in projects like Smiley, Not Cool, Internet Famous, Escape the Night and a few others.

Dawson was born on the 19th of July 1988 in Long Beach, California and he began his career as a YouTuber 19 years after in March 2008. His first channel’s name was ShaneDawsonTV and he started by making sketch comedy videos and commentaries about pop culture. As he grew in popularity, he began to expand the quality of his content and diversified into docuseries. Thereafter, he began a video series where he discusses conspiracy theories. With that, he became very popular and earned a place on Forbes’ list of Most Famous Web Celebrity, coming in at number 25.

Meanwhile, he ran two other channels (ShaneDawsonTV2 and shane), the latter which has since transformed into his only active channel with original contents.

Other than his YouTube career, Shane Dawson’s huge net worth also came from his career as a podcaster. He began this endeavor in 2013, launching the Shane and Friends podcast. The podcast ran for four years and released a total of 140 episodes before he discontinued it to focus on other projects.
