The Try Guys Net Worth and How Much They Make on YouTube

The Try Guys is a renowned American YouTube channel that was created by four guys, namely, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, Ned Fulmer, and Eugene Lee Yang in 2014. Together, they write, direct, produce, shoot, and star in each video upload.

As of 2020, The Try Guys have achieved an estimated net worth of $5.9 million.

They launched the channel while still working with Buzzfeed, a New York City-based internet media, news, and entertainment company, which they left in 2018 after starting their own independent production company, 2nd Try LLC.

So far, The Try Guys YouTube channel has over 7.4 million subscribers with over 300 videos that have received more than a billion views and grossed over $3 million in revenue. Their two most-watched YouTube videos, The Try Guys Try Drag For The First Time and The Try Guys Try Labor Pain Simulation, have gathered a combined 71 million views, raking in over $200,000 in revenue. Besides YouTube, The Try Guys have also generated income through diverse means including merchandise sales, tours, podcast, and book sales.

How The Famous YouTube Channel Was Created

Ned, Keith, Eugene, and Zach are the former members of Buzzfeed’s video department. They use their background and expertise in creating videos while at Buzzfeed to create unique content which makes them the darling of numerous YouTube viewers. The content of their uploads includes a wide variety of uneasy and hilarious challenges such as simulation of painful labor contraction, racing dog sleds on a glacier, and dressing up like an elderly person.

Having started creating content on YouTube under Buzzfeed Motion Pictures in 2014, The Try Guys parted ways with Buzzfeed because of their dissatisfaction with the payment structure and then established their own indie production company, 2nd Try LLC in 2018. That same year, their YouTube channel experienced a surge in the number of subscribers, moving from 100,000 to 1 million and over 5.8 million subscribers by May 2019.

How Do The Try Guys Make Their Money?

The popular quartet YouTube group pockets millions of dollars through cost per thousand views (CPM) or cost per click (CPC). YouTubers make between $3 and $5 when their video receives one thousand views (CPM) and also earn money when viewers click on the ads placed in their videos or pages. Having had 3 YouTube channels; The Try Guys, TryPods, and Baby Steps Podcast, with about 8 million combined subscribers and over 1.4 billion video views on the social media platform, they have made a huge amount of money through YouTube.

Furthermore, The Try Guys are also growing their net worth through endorsement and sponsorship deals, as well as through Patreon membership, tours, book sales, and selling of apparel and accessories on their online store. Apparently, their numerous business ventures have contributed to their estimated net worth of $5.9 million.

They Have Made A Mouth-watering Income Through Their Efforts On YouTube

Following the aforementioned avenues of making money through YouTube, it is evident that The Try Guys have earned a substantial amount from their various YouTube channels. Their eponymous YouTube channel currently has more than 7.4 million subscribers, over 300 videos, and over 1.5 billion video views. Thus, fetching over $3 million in revenue for them. Their eight most-watched YouTube videos which have more than 220 million combined views have grossed over $700,000 in revenue.

Besides their normal YouTube channel endeavors, in 2017, The Try Guys created a comedy web television series named Squad Wars which was exclusively produced for YouTube Premium (a subscription service where their subscribers pay a monthly subscription fee to watch premium ad-free content). This also generates a monthly income that adds to The Try Guys’ net worth.

Later in 2019, The Try Guys channel carried out numerous branded content campaigns for Google. Amongst them is the testing of new technologies at the Google I/O event which was recorded in a video. Other A-list companies which The Try Guys have carried out ad campaigns for include LG and Target. The top brands that have sponsored most of their YouTube videos include Dell, Kroger, Googlefi, and US Census Bureau. Although there is a paucity of information regarding the revenues the branded content campaigns and sponsorships generated for the quartet, it is believed that they have made a fortune through them.

Each tier pays a monthly subscription that ranges from $3 to $500 which determines the package and reward associated with it. The Try Guys Patreon platform has 7 tiers namely; Ruby Tryceratops, Emerald Tryceratops, Amethyst Tryceratops, Sapphire Tryceratops, Pearl Tryceratops, Gold Tryceratops, and Diamond Tryceratops that pays a monthly subscription of $3, $5, $10, $25, $35, $100, and $500 respectively.

The significant difference between the tiers is that the Ruby Tryceratops has 24-hour early access to videos, the Emerald Tryceratops has access to The Try Guys Chart Server (Discord) where they talk about their new videos, share memes, art, and chat with their fans. Furthermore, the Amethyst Tryceratops has exclusive access to the Try Guys Post Thoughts podcast, the Sapphire Tryceratops gets a free piece of The Try Guys swag after the first three months, the Pearl Tryceratops gets a collaborating on TGGT segments and receives a shout out in Try Guys Post Thoughts podcast once a month.

More so, the Gold Tryceratops gets a shout out in the YT description of every Try Guys video each month after completion of three months (as long as you remain a patron at this tier) and lastly, the Diamond Tryceratops gets a shout out in ‘TryPod’ podcast once a month. Currently, they have over 3,600 patrons which, no doubt, generates over $15,000 monthly.

How Much The TryPod Podcast Yields For The Quartet YouTube Group 

In the year 2019, The Try Guys channel started a podcast named The TryPod where the four YouTubers analyze and interpret their experiences as close friends and content creators who have made a fortune by risking their lives on their videos. Apart from Eugene Lee who is gay and single, the wives of the other three often feature on their podcast.

Each episode of The TryPod podcast gets between 10,000 and 25,000 downloads. With a total of over 79,000 listeners and more than 90 episodes, the podcast has generated significant wealth and greatly increased The Try Guys’ net worth through advertisements and downloads.

The Try Guys Increased Their Net Worth With Legend Of The Internet Tour

Having garnered a huge fan following across several social media platforms from 2018 to 2019, the multi-streamy-award-winners kicked off their first tour titled, Legends of the Internet on June 20th, 2019 at The Wiltern, Los Angeles. They performed a total of 23 shows in the United States and later extended the tour to Australia, Canada, and Singapore.

However, there is a dearth of information regarding the exact amount grossed from the tours through ticket sales. Nonetheless, it is assumed that the YouTubers earned enormous income as some of their shows were sold out.

They Have Raked In Money From Book Sales

The Try Guys penned their first book entitled “The Hidden Power of F*cking Up” in 2019. The book which was published by HarperCollins on June 18th, 2019 was an inspirational self-improvement guide to overcome life’s humiliating detours, sudden failures, and embarrassing mistakes. In the book, the group revealed the ideology behind them trying things out and equally, how to attack fear, foolishness, and embarrassment head-on with their sure-fail strategies for achieving success.

However, the number of copies sold as well as the revenue grossed from it is yet unknown. The book is sold between $10 and $25 on several online bookstores including Apple Books, BAM, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.

The Famous YouTubers Have Also Made Money Through Different Business Ventures

Besides earning money through YouTube, book sales, and podcasts, the multi-award-winning quartet group also make money through the sales of apparel including hoodies, sweaters, T-shirts, women’s clothing, and undergarments on their online store. They also deal on accessories which include coffee mugs, hair accessories, tote bags, slides and slippers, and plushies.

Their products are marketed on their social media platforms and sold through their online stores. The income accrued from their merchandise sales is unavailable as at the time of this writing.
