Alex Wassabi Net Worth $3 Million
Alex Wassabi spent one part of his childhood in his hometown until the family moved to North Carolina, where he was raised with three siblings by his parents; his brothers are Aaron and Andrew, both of whom are involved in the entertainment industry too. As a little boy, he showed his talent when entertaining his friends at school.
Later, when in middle school he met Roi Fabito, and they began filming their first videos together in 2005. In no time, they decided to launch their own YouTube channel under the name Hoiitsroi, which was soon changed to Wassabi Productions. At the beginning, they uploaded videos for their own entertainment, but subsequently came their first major project, when they released the video “Define: Friend” in 2009, after which the number of subscribers began to grow, which really marked the beginning of his net worth.
On the 7th April 2012, they released their most famous video – a parody of the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, thanks to which they gained enormous popularity. That was their huge success whic got them many more subscribers on the channel, and added a considerable amount to Alex’s net worth. Today the video has had more that 125 million views, and over 600,000 likes.
Afterwards, Alex and Roi made a decision to continue with uploading videos on YouTube, and so hopefully make money for a living. Thus, they began to release a video per week – on Wednesdays – so the series of those videos was entitled “Wassabi Wednesdays”, and which increased his net worth by a large margin.
However, in early 2016 Roi decided to leave the channel, and Alex continued to film videos with his girlfriend and his family. Nowadays, his YouTube channel has more than nine million subscribers, and an estimated three billion views.
Beside that, Alex also tried himself as an actor, making his debut guest-starring appearance in the TV series “Escape The Night” (2017). He also starred in the role of Allen in the film entitled “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween”, in the same year. Both of these appearances contributed to his wealth.
When it comes to speak about his personal life, Alex Wassabi has been in a relationship with Lauren Rihimaki, who is also a well-known YouTube personality, since 2015. His current residence is in Los Angeles, California. Additionally to his career, Alex is an active member across many of the most popular social media platforms, including his official Twitter and Instagram accounts, on which he also has a huge number of followers.
