Nowadays, it seems that if you want to have a career in an internet business, what you have to do is become a YouTube star. After all, with fan favorites like Lily Singh and Strawburry17 accumulating all that wealth, there’s no reason not to try it out yourself.
Now, Grayson and Ethan Dolan have announced that TRL is being brought back on MTV, and they will be involved.
So among all of the YouTube stars out there, how do the Dolan twins compare? How much wealth have they accumulated, and what is the Dolan twins net worth?
Ethan Dolan and Grayson Dolan are yet another example of social media stars who rose to fame on the popular video app Vine, in 2013. And of course, they’re also the protypical examples of stars who managed to make a successful transition from Vine to YouTube, after the acquisition of the former.
The Dolan twins hail from New Jersey and were born in 1999, which means, yes, they’re not even legal yet! Ethan and Grayson not only mastered Vine, accumulating more than 6 million followers on the app, but have now attained more than 4 million subscribers on YouTube! The Dolan twins also have more than 3 million followers on their Instagram.
In their videos, the Dolan Twins are definitely oversharers. They like to make humorous videos about their families and their hobbies. No topics is off limits for these guys and they just don’t seem to get embarrassed.
Upon amassing a huge social media following, the Dolan twins quickly began making the transition into mainstream media success. They began performing a comedic and musical act on stage at venues like the House of Blues, around the country, and also starred in a social media campaign to promote Twitter. In 2018, the Dolan twins were signed with Awesomeness TV. And in 2018, when the Dolan twins won a web award at the Teen Choice Awards, they cemented their status as mainstream media successes.
Now that the Dolans have signed a deal with MTV, they’re gonna get super rich very quickly. How much will Grayson and Ethan Dolan earn at MTV?
No figures have been disclosed, but comparable people have earned anywhere from $200,000 per year to slightly over $1 million during their debut on MTV. Carson Daly, for instance, earned $100,000 in his first year at MTV in the 90s.
We estimate that the Dolan Twins may be making around a half million dollars for TRL.
So what is Dolan Twins net worth? Given the amount of money they make from advertising on YouTube, endorsements on their social media and live performance at venues that sell out, Dolan Twins net worth in 2018 is $5 million.
This doesn’t include the value of their contract with MTV, which could reach into the millions over a couple of years.
