Highest-Paid YouTuber Is Woman Who Unwraps Disney Toys
In what has to be the most surprising news of the day, a report was released announcing the highest paid YouTubers. While an educated guess might lead you to assume someone like Miranda Sings or Jenna Marbles rakes in the most revenue on the site, that assumption is totally wrong. A woman who unwraps Disney toys is actually YouTube's top earner. She made a reported $4.9 million in 2014 from ads. Seriously.
According to Yahoo!, the channel is called DisneyCollectorBR and has hundreds of videos showing someone opening different Disney toys while describing what's inside. That's it. That's the whole channel. The woman on tape is never shown beyond her hands, so her identity has remained a total secret. The New York Times has allegedly traced the channel back to a 21-year-old woman who lives in Westchester, while Buzzfeed claims the woman behind the channel is older and lives in Florida.
Check out the DisneyCollectorBR channel and let us know if you're into her videos. If so, feel free to let us know what it is that draws you to the videos. Is it her soothing voice? Her well-manicured hands? The toys themselves?
