The Net Worth of DavidParody

How rich is DavidParody? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1.4 million, earned through a successful career on YouTube. His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including collaborations with other popular YouTube names. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life, and Education

David is of Vietnamese descent – his parents moved from Vietnam to Canada in 1990, a year before he was born. He grew up in Ottawa and took up his education there. As a child, he was sickly and experienced a lot of fevers during this period, but eventually overcame his health problems, and began excelling in school. During his teens, he began learning the piano, but wasn’t really interested, so he discontinued his lessons.


While he was bullied in elementary school, he later made a lot of friends in middle school and high school. He started focusing on math and science as primary subjects although a little more difficult. He took up his high school studies at St. Patrick’s Catholic High School which is located in Sarnia, Ontario – it’s now the only secondary school in the area as it was merged with St. Christopher’s Secondary School in 2013. After matriculating from high school, he then moved to complete his college education, but there are no details as to this period of his life.

Foray Into YouTube

Prior to entering college, David became interested in creating videos with friends, but never really thought about sharing his work online. His parents wanted him to pursue a field in medical science, but he was never really interested in it. He then discovered the website YouTube and became addicted to it, often spending time watching videos. Two years later, he decided that he would try his hand at creating and uploading his own content.

YouTube is an online video platform which allows users to upload their own videos for others to view. Viewers can then rate, comment, and share the videos they like with them, also having the option of subscribing to channels they enjoy. The website has become one of the most popular in the world with videos ranging from live streams, movie trailers, documentary films, music videos, video clips, and many more. Content creators can earn income through Google’s AdSense program which showcases ads to viewers depending on their preferences. According to Alexa Internet, YouTube is the second most popular website in the world and it shows no signs of losing that popularity any time soon.

YouTube Content

DavidParody stumbled upon make-up tutorial videos which are popular on YouTube, and decided that his videos would be parodies of these tutorials. He uploaded several parodies of personalities such as Bubzbeauty, Michelle Phan, and Juicestar07, and to his surprise, his videos gained a lot of positive attention, and his subscribers quickly increased significantly. He was motivated to focus seriously on his YouTube channel, as he enjoyed making people laugh, and also started to upload other types of videos, including collaborations with a group called ALBOE – or A Little Bit of Everything – which usually involves them doing challenges.

His channel has gained over 3.7 million subscribers since its inception, and some of his most popular videos have over seven million in views. Some of his most popular videos include him going to the arcade with friends, putting 100 layers of glue on his face, having an accident while doing a parkour video, and tasting the Burger King Mac n’ Cheetos.  In recent months he’s been doing a lot of challenges with his group, plus food videos which include taste tests. He also travels a lot, and features his girlfriend in his videos.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, it is known that David is in a relationship with Nhi, and she is a prominent feature on his channel for many years now. Despite this, the two manage to keep a lot of details about their relationship away from the public. Aside from making videos, he says that he enjoys playing sports, his favorites including hockey and soccer which he played during his school days. He also likes to watch games from the professional scene. He enjoys food as evident from his YouTube channel – ice cream especially, and his favorite flavor is mint chocolate. Some of his favorite television shows include “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” though he doesn’t have a lot of time to watch. He says that he’s not a big fan of dogs, possibly due to a bad experience with them in the past.

As with many other YouTube personalities, he is very active online, particularly through other social media websites. He has an account on Instagram which has over 865,000 followers, and often features photos of himself out with friends. He also posts a few personal photos, mostly taken from photo shoots, and of him traveling to various countries. He has a Twitter account too, which has over 300,000 followers.
