The third place is taken by these five bros - Coby Cotton, Cory Cotton, Garret Hilbert, Cody Jones, and Tyler Toney.

As soon as they noticed that their popularity had already grown substantially, they immediately went on a tour across the country and grossed a total of $ 6 million in revenue. During the tour, they made the documentary called Backstage Pass. When the government introduced nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus, the group took to their YouTube channel to host the Quarantine Classic, competing against each other in various sports in an unusual environment.

Mark Fischbach (Markiplier)

Earnings: $19.5 million

Subscribers: 27.8 million

Mark Fischbach, whose channel appeared on YouTube eight years ago, takes the fifth place on the list. Popularity came to him thanks to ultra-popular breakdowns of video games. However, in the last year, he came up with the idea to change the concept of his channel. He invited his friend Ethan Nestor, better known under the pseudonym CrankGameplays. They have created the YouTube channel Unus Annus together, where they regularly post joint videos, tricks, and other challenges. The idea behind was to attract the attention of the public to the problem of the fickle lifespan of internet popularity. For this purpose, in one day, the Unus Annus channel was closed, and then all content was removed from it. More than 1.5 million people tuned into a livestream as the duo bid goodbye indicating how wildly popular the bloggers were.
