Jake Paul net worth: Jake Paul is an American social media personality, actor and comedian who has a net worth of $20 million. He gained extensive media coverage when the music video for his 2017 single “It’s Everyday Bro” went viral on YouTube. He is the younger brother of YouTube star Logan Paul.
Early Life: Jake Joseph Paul was born on January 17, 1997, in Westlake, Ohio to Pamela Stepnick and Gregory Paul. He has one brother, Logan, who is also a popular YouTube star. Jake got started posting videos on the now-defunct video platform Vine. He had nearly five and a half million followers and two billion views on Vine when it shut down.
Career: Jake launched his video career in September 2013. Once Vine closed down in January 2017, Disney hired Jake to be on the sitcom “Bizaardvark.” His catchphrase on the show was “It’s Everyday Bro!” (Side note: That catchphrase is not grammatically correct. “Everyday” means commonplace, ordinary or routine, for example: “these are my everyday run-of-the-mill socks.” I’m pretty sure Jake is intending to say “It’s Every Day, Bro!” which would mean something that happens each day…)
In July 2017, Jake was fired from “Bizaardvark” during the filming of the second season. By that time, Paul had generated a bunch of controversies including complaints from his neighbors about wild parties, pranks, fire hazards, and the enormous crowds of young fans that gathered in the street outside of Paul’s rented house after he published his address on social media. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paul confirmed that he was fired from the Disney Channel show due to the hubbub over his parties and the local news coverage of it.
Jake Paul launched Team 10 in January 2017. Team 10 is a digital influencer marketing platform and creative agency that creates and promotes entertainment for teenagers. In May of that same year, he released a song and music video called “It’s Everyday Bro.” The video got more than 70 million views in one month.
In early January 2018, Paul uploaded a video called “I lost my virginity.” The video’s thumbnail showed Paul and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell laying semi-nude on top of each other. YouTube age-restricted the video as a result. Paul changed the thumbnail to a clothed photo of the couple.
Paul made his professional boxing debut on January 20, 2020, in Miami. He faced off against fellow YouTubers Gib. Jake was victorious with a TKO 2:18 into the first round.
