The TikTok rich list: The net worths of the richest stars will make you weep

Man, I need to learn to dance

TikTok stars are making serious bank. There’s no two ways about it. From what seems like a breezy life, dancing on camera for 30 seconds or doing impressions and learning transitions, some of the biggest names on TikTok are creating themselves net worths of literally millions.

According to Forbes, some of the top stars on TikTok are earning up to $5million from the platform a year, which has helped them build up similarly eye watering net worths too. From the dizzy heights of being Addison Rae and suddenly hanging out with the Kardashians and releasing a single, to the people who share their weird and wonderful talents –  here’s a ranking of just how much they are earning from their videos alone. And if you want something to make you weep even further, only one of them is over 20.

Charli D’Amelio, sister to Dixie, was probably the original TikTok it girl.
