Sometimes it seems like YouTubers have it too easy. By posting videos of themselves playing video games, putting on makeup, or talking about books, they manage to rake in tons of money — sometimes in the multimillions! But as insane (and unfair) as that sounds, don’t be fooled. There is a lot of work that goes into being a social media star. These guys have to be producing content all the time, which is basically a full-time job.

And don’t forget how talented they are in their fields. Beauty YouTubers don’t learn all of their makeup skills overnight and we’d hate to go head-to-head with any of the guys on our list of highest-paid YouTube gamers. Success like that comes with a lot of hard work — not to mention a lot of charisma — so it’s no wonder that so many of them end up on your fave TV shows or in feature films.

But those aren’t the only ways Internet sensations can go mainstream! Check out all of these YT stars who went from posting videos for an invisible audience to performing in the Big Apple as Broadway stars.
