Logan Paul’s Net Worth in 2022 (estimate): $35 million
Logan Paul’s net worth in 2022 is $35 million. This is according to numerous reputable sources, including Celebrity Net Worth.
Logan Alexander Paul was born in Westlake, Ohio, and attended Westlake High School. In his youth, he was a gifted amateur wrestler and ended up qualifying for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association 2013 Division I Wrestling Individual Championships. He’d go on to enroll at Ohio University to pursue Industrial Engineering but would end up dropping out.
Paul dropped out of college and moved to Los Angeles, California with his brother Jake to pursue a career in social media entertainment. Both were very prominent on video-sharing platform Vine, and were arguably two of the most famous content creators on the platform. Before Vine was shut down in 2017, Logan amassed a total of 9.47 million followers. He was also making waves in other platforms as his Instagram and Facebook pages were gaining hundreds of thousands of followers. Logan was becoming huge on YouTube EVEN BEFORE having his own YouTube channel; Vine compilations of Paul posted on YouTube by third-party channls garnered millions of views. Paul’s following, referred to as “Logang” was growing exponentially.
He started doing YouTube as well in late 2013, posting daily vlogs on his channels TheOfficialLoganPaul and simply Logan Paul. He would expand his content to include music, animation, and even a YouTub Premium movie entitled The Thinning, wherein he starred beside former Disney live-action star Peyton List.
This wouldn’t be his only forray into movies, however. The 26-year old has actually made his own movie entitled Airplane Mode (2019), starring himself. Also in the film are other prominent social media personalities including Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Lele Pons, Amanda Cerny, and Casey Neistat, among others. He was also reportedly included in such Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson films, including Hercules (2014) Central Intelligence (2016), and most notably Baywatch (2017). However, all of Paul’s scenes were cut from these movies.
From all his exploits in YouTube and mainstream media, Paul had garnered a significant following and has already become a divisive figure, due to the nature of his content; his loud and exaggerated videos have irked viewers.
However, he outright became the Internet’s most hated person back in 2017 with the infamous suicide forest controversy: in a fateful trip to Japan, Logan Paul filmed and posted a three daily vlogs, with one of them most notably depicting a deceased person in Aokigahara (more commonly known as Japan’s “suicide forest”). Paul was heavily criticised for his severe lack of insensitivity and discretion in handling the situation, and even in posting the video at all. Moreover, he was also criticized for bad behavior while in the country. Amidst the backlash, Paul issued an apology via Twitter and YouTube, and took a three-week hiatus from posting daily vlogs. He has also made a suicide prevention video, as well as donated $1 million to suicide prevention agencies.
Nevertheless, his channel has taken several hits from this incident and from previous controversies: YouTube took Paul’s channel off of Google Preferred (the site’s preferred ad program), and several of his projects were halted.
Fast forward to 2018: Paul has been involved in even more controversies, albeit not as large as the Japan incident. It was this year that he would venture into amateur boxing as well, with British YouTuber and musician KSI challenging both Logan and Jake to a bout following his win against fellow YouTuber Joe Weller. Logan would eventually accept KSI’s challenge, scheduling KSI vs Logan Paul 1 on August 25, 2018 in Manchester Arena.
The first fight ended in a majority draw, setting up KSI vs Logan Paul 2 to be held in Staples Center. The bout was to be a professional one, the first of such kind for both KSI and Paul. The fight ended in a split decision win for KSI, leaving Logan’s professional boxing record at 0-1-0.
Despite the loss, Logan would get legendary boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather to an exhibition bout to be fought on June 6, 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium. The elder Paul brother went on to lose the fight, although he did take the smaller Mayweather to the eighth round. This is Logan Paul’s last bout as of the writing of this piece. It;s fair to say that Logan’s boxing career hasn’t been quite as good as his brother’s, who has had several victories against the likes of Tyron Woodley, Ben Askren, and KSI’s younger brother Deji Olatunji.
Nowadays, Paul is most well-known for his Impaulsive podcast, which he also started in 2018. Similar to other podcasts like The Joe Rogan Experience, Impaulsive’s format involves having two hosts (Logan and Mike Majlak) and one or multiple guests. Notable Impaulsive guests include the likes of Ben Shapiro, Jordan Belford (aka “The Wolf of Wall Street” ), and even former boxing opponent KSI.
Remarkably, Paul is now in collaboration with KSI to launch new beverage brand Prime Hydration. Other ventures include his Maverick brand merchandise, as well as the Maverick Membership Club. He also makes money off of streams of his music, although he is not nearly as prolific in this aspect as his brother, Jake.
With his diverse income streams coming from advertising revenue, merchandise sales, and podcast listens, he is now worth a hefty $35 million.
