Who is Logan Paul? Net Worth, How He Got Famous, and More

Logan Paul is a successful YouTuber, social media figure, and actor who rose to popularity on Vine, the defunct video-sharing network, before switching to Youtube and becoming one of the most popular personalities and content creators. 

Logan Paul has also played a role in different acting scenes and recently decided to try boxing. The only match he has had with another Youtuber was named KSI. 

He did fight Floyd Mayweather, but since it was labeled an exhibition match, it was not counted as a true fight.

Before Logan Paul focused entirely on social media, he had been a student at the University of Ohio, where he studied to become an industrial engineer. 

He later relocated to Los Angeles to further his social media career, where he shared an apartment with several well-known Vine personalities.

He later relocated to Los Angeles to further his social media career, where he shared an apartment with several well-known Vine personalities.

Logan Paul’s net worth as of 2022 is estimated to be $45 million. According to Forbes, he makes $150,000 for each Facebook post and another $80,000 for each Instagram sponsored post.

Furthermore, it has been stated that in 2019 he made a fortune of $10 million from his YouTube channel.

His content may no longer be his primary source of income, but he still makes a good living from it. These figures will most likely grow in 2022, thanks to Paul’s new signing with WWE.

How did Logan Paul get famous?

Logan Paul, who is known as a famous social media personality, began his career as an internet sensation in 2014 when he joined the video-sharing app Vine.

Paul started by making comedy films, frequently including his buddies and younger brother, Jake Paul. 

His videos on Vine were well-known for large antics, which included him doing crazy things and engaging in risky, attention-seeking actions.

Paul dropped out of college in 2015 to pursue creating Vines full-time. 

He was later named one of Vine’s most influential personalities by Business Insider, which, combined with his popularity, certainly helped him land sponsorship deals with corporations such as Virgin Mobile, HBO, Ritz, and Pepsi. 

 Logan Paul had over 9.4 million followers by the time the app shut down in 2016.

Suicide Forest

Although Logan was involved in several controversies, the most notable occurred when Logan and his pals visited a Forest in Japan by the name Aokigahara. 

The Forest is also commonly referred to as the suicide forest. This episode harmed his reputation for most of 2018. Logan Paul posted a video to his YouTube account on December 31, 2017, depicting him entering the “Suicide Forest.”

The video, posted with the alleged intention of raising awareness about suicide, showed a tragic twist when in the end, they stumbled upon a body of a man who had committed suicide.

Logan Paul continually zoomed in on the corpse after seeing it. He then made comments and joked in a way that annoyed his fans. It’s unclear if Logan did these things on purpose or as a survival tactic.

Most of his fans had a hostile take on the video, as well as several prominent YouTube personalities and celebrities, online publications, radio, news, television, and talk show sources. Even some of his personal friends chastised him for displaying explicit content to his young audiences.

PewDiePie, who had the highest number of Youtube subscribers at the time, even called Logan a “sociopath,” a phrase that would eventually become a funny meme.

After uploading the video, it received over 6.5 million views, 600,000 likes, and was at #6 on trending within 24 hours before Logan Paul could pull it down.

Logan did apologize twice on Twitter and YouTube, but it simply fanned the fire. The video was stored and reuploaded thousands of times over the internet. 

Because of the criticism, many in the YouTube community called this scandal “the end of Logan’s career.”

Logan Paul Starts Boxing

On February 3, 2018, Logan Paul was challenged to a boxing contest by British YouTuber KSI following his previous amateur boxing match with Joe Weller.

Logan Paul and his brother, Jake Paul, were confirmed to be in two amateur boxing matches against KSI and Deji Olatunji, his younger brother, on February 24, 2018.

The bout ended in a draw, with two judges scoring it 57-57 in favor of KSI and a third rating it 58-57 in favor of KSI.

The YouTube sensation has boxed both amateur and professional. He just secured a deal with WWE, where he will make appearances at this year’s WrestleMania and SummerSlam events.

Paul, 27, lost to Briton on points in a professional match the following year before going the distance with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather last summer.

Paul made his WWE debut in April, partnering with The Miz to battle Rey Mysterio and the legend’s son Dominik.
