You might know him as the guy who shouts a lot online, you might know him as Speed, you probably don’t know him as Darren Watkins (his real name), but IShowSpeed is one hot-headed and chaotic personality.
The American native gained one million subscribers on Twitch within a matter of days in 2021, but was recently banned from the platform following a threatening issue with another contestant in a game.
At just 17-years-old, he is one of the most popular content creators of the year, with millions tuning into his crazy livestreams. But what is his net worth in 2022? Let’s find out…
As of 2022 it is estimated that IShowSpeed has a net worth of somewhere in the region of $500k-$1M, and for a 17-year-old, we think he’s doing pretty well…
He doesn’t only generate income from ridiculously loud and extravagant livestreams, he is also an artist on Spotify and has a song with over 14.7 million streams.
Before Youtube and his life of fame however, Speed was just Darren from Cincinnati in Ohio. He worked in a nursing home delivering food to the elderly patients. His fame stemmed from a hobby out of boredom in lockdown and has reached heights he could never have dreamt of.
When giving tips on how to replicate his successes, Speed mentioned how important it is to stand out and be different, and the online creator and influencer world is completely saturated. He also noted knowing what your strengths are and utilising them, whether that be comedy or a certain niche.
Speed has made a career, along with his millions of dollars, out of screaming at things and throwing miscellaneous objects and smashing them. For just 17, it’s clear to see know matter the controversy, how much of a sensation he really is.
