    Amassing millions of fans on YouTube really does pay off.

    Zoe Sugg — or "Zoella," as she is known on YouTube — has paid more than $1.4 million for a five-bedroom home in Hove, East Sussex, according to the Daily Mail.

    Sugg, 24, has more than 7.3 million fans on her YouTube channel, where she posts style tutorials and videos showing off her latest purchases.

    She has created a line of beauty products, published a best-selling book, and now she has her own house, which she will be sharing with fellow YouTuber and boyfriend Alfie Deyes.







    The home is located in Hove, a small town on the southern coast of England. Large gates seal off the property, presumably to keep the YouTubers safe from their hordes of fans.

    Inside, the house is spacious and bright.

    The couple bought the house in October, but they waited a few months before moving in. "It has been a secret and this is the first time that Alfie and I have lived together," Zoella told her fans in a YouTube video. "We've moved into a new place. I didn't know I owned so much stuff. I’m so excited."

    The house has a nice kitchen area.

    And the dining room has an interesting light fixture.

    The home has five bedrooms — not bad for your first house.

    good for her, sounds like she leveraged her talent and following into a real business--given the bleak outlook for people in their twenties for employment , it's awesome.

    People talk about podcasting but forget about monetized Youtube channels.

    One guy, Pewdiepie, does about 10 to 20 million views per video on his videogame channel.

    Good for her, but that doesn't seem like much house for $1.4 mil. Plus it's in England .... maybe they're metric dollars? :dontknow:

    She has a brother Joe who also is a "Youtuber". He, however is actually a roof thatcher and still has his job unlike all the rest of these youtubers who sit there and talk about themselves endlessly and make insane money.
    Check out Tyler Oakley... he's got like over 6 million subscribers and I'm sure is raking in the cash.
    I couldn't spend 5 minutes on camera talking about myself, though I wish I could be like these folks.

    Not impressed if they have a mortgage on the house.

    There's most likely not a mortgage, these folks make insane amounts of money. Last year that guy Tyler Oakley asked for his subscribers to donate to a charity he liked and in no time he got around $500,000 for the charity. This year he's hoping for a million... and that's just to the charity.
    Not only do they get money from doing this but they get invited all the fuck over the world to appear and greet fans or work on projects.
    It's a brilliant gig, if you can get it.

    This will sound like bullshit but some lad (Swedish I think) who I chat with while playing Destiny on xbone told me about his mate who is making a ton of money through youtube. It was this Pewdiepie and their other friends older brother is the person who made minecraft.

    He said they haven't let their success change them and two of the nicest people you could meet.

    As for more local youtube celebrities you only have to look at Ray William Johnson, bigger following then Howard could dream of and still relevant without having to go mainstream and sell out
