It’s no secret that being a successful YouTuber can be a profitable career. And while they might not be making as much as the A-list actors that grace our movie screens, they’re still rolling in more dough than most of us. Here are the YouTube chefs who make a ton of money.
Perhaps one of the funniest cooking channels on the ‘Tube is You Suck At Cooking, featuring an anonymous, faceless chef — with his cynical, satirical approach to the platform’s cooking show formula.
He often insults the viewers, throws ingredients across the kitchen, and goes on strange tangents. And given his simple recipes — like coleslaw, tomato sauce, and a breakfast sandwich — he relies mostly on hilarious narration to keep his 1.6 million subscribers happy.
If you don’t like the enthusiastic and bubbly nature of most TV and YouTube chefs, this is clearly the channel for you. Chef uploaded his first video in 2015, so it’s quite impressive that his estimated annual income has been listed as high as almost $199K, per Social Blade. Sounds like You Suck At Cooking doesn’t suck at YouTubing.
Perhaps one of the most well-known of this bunch, Binging with Babish, hosted by Andrew Rea, has over 3.8 million subscribers — and recreates dishes from your favorite movies and TV shows.
Using his signature style of layering narration over shots of food prep, Rea creates dishes like “the grey stuff” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and the dire wolf bread from Game of Thrones. Considering that Rea’s channel only started to gain traction in early 2017, this relative newcomer has done an incredible job of making his mark on an ever-changing platform. According to Social Blade, the channel has raked in up to an estimated $1.6M per year. Considering he uploaded just 93 videos in 2018, that’s a significant amount of cheese.
