Who is Asian Andy?
Steven was born on 18 August 1994, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is a YouTube personality as well as a live streamer, best known from initially gaining fame on the website YouTube, posting live streams and videos about his streams. He’s gained hundreds of thousands of subscribers on the website as a result.
The Wealth of Asian Andy
How rich is Asian Andy? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $180,000, earned through a successful career online. His numerous endeavors have helped him increase his net worth significantly, and as he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Asian Andy’s life prior to his rise to fame, as he has not shared a lot of details about his past. There is almost no information regarding his childhood, family, and even his education. He grew up in Los Angeles, and didn’t really think of himself as someone who could create online content for a living.
He launched his YouTube channel in 2006, though left it mostly inactive for over a decade, until in 2017 he began to post on the website regularly. YouTube was established by three former PayPal employees in 2005, before the company was bought by Google the following year for $1.65 billion. It allows users to create their own videos and upload them for others to view. Interaction can be done on the website through the use of comments, rating, views, shares, subscriptions, and the like. Content creators can also earn income through advertising revenue given by Google AdSense.
Streaming and YouTube Content
Andy also decided to create more avenues for his online content through streaming. However, his streams would not be typical, and would likely get him banned or deactivated on websites such as Twitch. Instead, he established himself on YouTube, and also set up his own website domain which would become his means to stream content. His fame increased significantly when he tried to do in-real-life streams (IRL) streams while going about his day to day endeavors. One of the reasons he became famous for IRL streaming was that he kept the text-to-speech feature of his stream on for the public to hear.
His viewers often donate money so they can access this feature and then use it to incriminate, embarrass, and put Asian Andy in awkward situations. The first time he did this was while he was working as an Uber driver. He live streamed at the same time, and allowed viewers to use the text-to-speech configuration, which led to a lot of humiliating moments for him, but it quickly became a hit on YouTube, gaining him hundreds of thousands of views. Seeing the potential for a significant amount of money at the cost of putting himself in embarrassing situations, he decided to start doing these types of streams and videos regularly.
Some of his most popular videos include him live streaming while sleeping, and earning income through text-to-speech. He also gained a lot of fame from his live streams while travelling, and going to stores while his stream is active. This has led him to a lot of confrontations with the public and being kicked out of numerous locations. He’s also been banned at local Best Buy and Starbucks outlets for his actions. At times, he has shown how absurd his viewers are by showcasing how much money he’s earned through accrued multiple donations on his stream.

He’s also done more regular streams, often interacting with his followers and fans through Discord. At times he watches other streamers using his own stream, interacting with lesser known personalities. However, in recent months he’s been increasingly inactive online. He has not been streaming as much within the past year, and his YouTube channels have only been updated sporadically. His main channel’s last update was in early 2019, and his secondary channel has not been updated for a year. A lot of his followers are also asking what he’s been doing since becoming relatively inactive.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Asian Andy’s romantic relationships. He has not talked about this aspect of his life often, though he has posted videos of him talking to girls or going to dates, often ending awkwardly, as he keeps his streams on for content. Many people have been suggesting that he has earned enough money from his controversial content, and is no longer looking to embarrass himself any further.
