Third on the list is Addison Rae, who earned $8.5 million dollars in 2021.

Addison has released music, signed a Netflix deal for multiple movies, become friends with the Kardashian’s and even appeared on the final season of their reality show, which built her brand hugely as well as having major brand deals herself.

Addison is a huge star on the rise and on top of all this has launched a skincare and makeup company named ITEM Beauty, with experience in multiple industries and friends in high places we are sure Addison’s star will continue to rise.

There was a tie for both fourth and fifth place.

Sway house alum Josh Richards and creator/ singer Bella Poarch both earned $5 million last year.

Josh being the only male in the top five, you may remember him from the TikTok couple drama of last year when his former girlfriend Nessa Barrett started dating his best friend Jaden Hossler, to the dismay of Jaden’s ex Mads Lewis… Josh presents the BFF’s podcast with Barstool and has multiple brand deals.

Bella is known for her cutesy TikTok’s and cartoon-like facial expressions, as well as her music and unique fashion sense.
