The wealth of Danny Duncan
As of early 2020, Danny Duncan’s net worth is estimated to be over $3.7 million, earned through success in his various endeavors which have all contributed to his wealth. He lives a luxurious lifestyle, travels constantly and buys new items such as cars or gadgets.
His main source of income is his ad revenue on YouTube in conjunction with an online business.
Early life, education and career start
Growing up alongside a sister and a half brother in Englewood, Danny spent most of his childhood with his mother as his parents separated when he was young. Seeing his mother’s struggles, he became motivated to find a way to earn a significant income to help his family.
However, he initially had no direction and mainly skateboarded in his spare time.
He attended nearby Lemon Bay High School (LBHS), which serves all nearby areas in Florida. In 2014, the online platform YouTube attracted his attention because it was a way to gain fame and money, as many have experienced in the past. Several personalities have found fame on the site, including video gamers, beauty enthusiasts, fitness freaks, vloggers, and many others. The website allows users to upload videos to the public, and content creators have an opportunity to earn significant money through Google’s advertising program, which earns them revenue through advertising.
YouTube and acting
While Duncan focused on skateboarding and dealing with injuries like the usual ankle injuries for skateboarders, a few people noticed him. Finally, he took the opportunity to be trained by actor and former professional skateboarder Jason Lee, who is known for his work on the “My Name Is Earl” series. He worked well with Lee who noticed of his ability, as well as his wit and ability to improvise comedy, and dedication to making YouTube videos. Lee then encouraged him to try pursuing acting as it seemed to be a field in which he could thrive.
He wholeheartedly followed the advice and sought the help of fellow YouTuber Christopher Chan, and the two began making videos of comedy skits and other short videos showcasing their acting. His followers continued to grow over the years and he expressed a desire to one day pursue professional acting.
Pranking and Wealth
In 2016, he took a different direction with his channel when he started posting prank videos, one of the most popular types of videos on YouTube. Danny’s first prank video showed him going out in public, carrying a box full of 30,000 cents, and then pretending to accidentally drop the pennies in front of strangers.
The video was a hit and became one of his most watched videos, reaching 15 million views in a short space of time. This motivated him to make more jokes, and as time went on, he began to integrate his comedy and jokes naturally into his videos. He started making more vlog-style videos showing off some of the crazy stuff he does.
He often interacts with strangers without hesitation and is not afraid to do unusual things for content and comedy. As his views grew steadily, his income began to grow, and these earnings eventually led to a more luxurious lifestyle. He started using his new income to help his family and bought his sister a car while he integrated a joke, and also bought a house for his mother.
He also bought expensive merchandise to show his viewers, and started playing pranks that required a lot more money, such as hiring athletes or flying to another part of the US.
Other efforts and controversies
In 2018, after his newly purchased scooter was stolen, Duncan ventured into music by creating a song called “I’m Upset”, which described how he felt about this situation. This remains his only song release as he shows no interest in becoming an artist. With his huge following, he also launched a personal website, with the intention of selling merchandise under the name Virginity Rocks. His fame grew to the point where he toured the US on the “Virginity Rocks Tour”, meeting fans and promoting his merchandise.
When shooting videos, he is often interrupted by fans as he has become a well-known personality in the country. It’s not all sunshine for Danny though, as his jokes and attitude have gotten him into trouble a few times. In one joke, he put a small pool on the back of his pickup truck and drove on the highway – police fined him for endangering the safety of those around him on the highway. He also started a feud with another joke YouTuber – FouseyTube – whom he accuses as someone who jokes with actors, so most of his jokes are fake. This drew some negative comments from Fousey.
Duncan is single, but has had two long-term relationships in the past. In recent years, however, he has been enjoying life as a single and has no plans to have a girlfriend anytime soon. There have been many question marks regarding the sudden rise of his wealth and his adaptation of a luxurious lifestyle on his channel. Others believed that his family may have been wealthier than he pretended to be. Fans defended him, however, because with calculations, he could afford the lifestyle he has now, as he made a lot of income from his YouTube revenue and the merchandise he sells. In his spare time, he enjoys going to the gym, exercising and keeping fit.
