He has picked up a few pets including his pugs and he’s also got a frog. It seems that PewDiePie owns at least two cars, they are actually a Volvo XC90 and a Mini Cooper but that’s not all, he also got himself a 1982 Honda Motor which is a Japanese import and on top of this he decided to make the seaside vacation spot right in England and the rent doesn’t come cheap.
As of June 2016, PewDiePie was still renting his property, this is pretty shocking stuff considering PewDiePie could buy up whatever property he wants.

Career and Net Worth
Let’s get right into his YouTube career. As the story goes, his first channel was titled PewDie but he forgot the password and returned to the platform on April 29th, 2010 under the name PewDiePie. By December the following year, his channel had around 60,000 subscribers, in 2012 his channel surpassed 1 million, in June of 2014 The Wall Street Journal reported that PewDiePie had earned 4 million dollars in 2013 alone. In an average of 300 to 400 thousand views each and every month in 2014 through to 2016, so we’re looking at it easy 600 to 800 thousand dollars per month over 10 million dollars a year.
Before he started earning 4 million a year since August 15th, 2013, PewDiePie has been the most subscribed user on YouTube being surpassed briefly for two months by YouTube Spotlight channel. He’s held the position since the 22nd of December 2013 and his channel has over 55 million subscribers at the moment. PewDiePie unstoppable trajectory took a small hit in 2017 when The Wall Street Journal labeled him as an anti-semite, they beast together comedic bits taken for multiple videos including a very obvious joke in regards to the website fiber and an ability to have people do just about anything for five bucks.
PewDiePie lost out on multiple brands deals, his entertainment network rebel mode was shut down and his YouTube red series scared PewDiePie season two. We can’t put a number on these potential losses but one can assume, it was well into the millions.
It’s not about the money, it’s about what’s fair and what’s right at least if you ask me, PewDiePie stated. But don’t worry, friends PewDiePie still has plenty of other revenue streams.
Let’s take a look at his shop over at pewdiepie.fanfiber.com, you can pick up a fidget spinner for 13.49, a t-shirt for 30.99 or a hoodie for 60 bucks. If only one and every 5,000 viewers were to buy something from this website, PewDiePie would take home another 40 million in merchandise revenue after taxes and that would bring PewDiePie’s net worth to 83 million.
“This book loves you” which became a New York Times bestseller and his video games like PewDiePie tuber simulator which was downloaded more than a million times within the first 24 hours but now you’ve gotten the idea that PewDiePie is very rich and is striking well the pot is hot with other sources of revenue.
Now let’s take a look at what he spent his fortune on, let’s kick things off with real estate.
Back in July of 2016, PewDiePie was kicked out with East Essex bright and flat by his land for making too much noise multiple minutes videos. Back then he and his girlfriend were living in a large early 19th-century residential development on the seafront in Brighton England, this town is also known as the unofficial gay capital of UK. The rent prices in this area don’t come cheap. It seems like Felix was primarily filming his videos at home, in 2017, it appears that he decided to rent an office space and a second place for his whole life. If he’s still renting, expect those prices to have doubled or tripled.
I get the question a lot: "Why do I live in Brighton?" and to be honest I never have a good answer.. "Me and Marzia moved here because we were too lazy to learn Swedish or Italian". "We just wanted to live in UK but, not in London" are common easy answers. But the truth is, it's such a great city and it has so much to offer. Don't get me wrong, I still love Sweden but for now I'm proud and happy to be a Brightonian. [Pic: Brighton Pavilion]
He may, however, decided to have bought himself a house, now the average price for detached home would be around $800,000 in Brighton which is about four weeks pay for Felix.
Let’s move on to cars, If you scroll through PewDiePie’s Instagram account, you will find two pictures of car interiors. It seems that he owns a Volvo xc90 valued at forty-five grand and a Mini Cooper which would be around 30k. Felix got his hands on what looks like in 1980 200 motor 50cc, an adventuress scooter which was built and sold strictly for the Japanese market. Felix decides to spend some money on furry friends scooping up two pugs but they’re pretty cheap.
PewDiePie doesn’t spend boatloads of cash he banks and lives a pretty modest life. And you might know that Felix is totally obsessed with Japanese stuff.
