Forbes Ranking: These Youtubers earned the most in 2018

Youtube, the place where we can really look at everything. People expressing other pimples. People unpacking cardboard boxes. People playing public transport simulators. What a joy.

But Youtube is not just the place for all freaks who are a little too happy to share every detail of their life with the public. It's also the platform for people who are making insane amounts of money from their videos (partly because they love to share every detail of their life with the public). Forbes has now published for 2018 which Youtubers have earned the most. We don't want to withhold that from you:
