RiceGum, YouTube celebrity has a net worth of $1.5 million dollars as of March 2016. RiceGum’s net worth is due to his viral fame on YouTube with his roasting videos and raps. This figure is a product of only estimates of his ad revenue from his YouTube account. RiceGum in his prime brought in over 80 million views per month on his YouTube channel, but his views have slowly declined over the past few month to 20-30 million views per month.
In a recent video that RiceGum made, he revealed his earnings from YouTube for the month of February. For one of the months where RiceGum had a record low in views and earnings, he still managed to make over $67,000 and only uploaded a total of four videos to his channel. In the video, RiceGum goes through the month’s earnings by showing his YouTube analytics page and explaining when he uploaded videos to his channel causing spikes in his earnings. On some days RiceGum made close to $5,000 in ad revenue and when he didn’t upload he still made almost $1,000 per day.

This YouTube star is no doubt a millionaire because his channel’s total amount of views top 483,000,000. According to the CPM figure that he showed us in his “I Show You How Much I YouTube Pays Me” video he earns upwards of $3 per 1000 views. Mind you, CPM figures are seasonal and do fluctuate during the course of the year. RiceGum’s CPM of $3 during the month of February is actually quite high for the advertising industry and most other YouTubers get a figure of around $1-2 per 1000 views year round. We took the $3 average figure he showed in the video and calculated RiceGum’s net worth based of that number. If RiceGum has almost 500 million views total on all of his videos we would divide 500,000,000 by 1000 giving us 50,000. Then multiple that times a CPM of $3 to get RiceGum’s net worth of $1,500,000.
This net worth is solely based off of YouTube ad revenue and is an estimate, it does not take into account any sponsorships or branded content deals that RiceGum did in the past. These deals would be confidential, and could not be shown to the public.
RiceGum is doing quite well considering his age of 18, and still living at home with his parents. In the future he intends to upload more video on a bi-weekly schedule and earn more from YouTube. In his videos he has told his audience that he plans to buy a nice home soon and purchases designer clothes/shoes often.
