The Wealth of Julien Solomita

His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities including collaborations with other popular YouTube personalities. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Julien grew up in Stanford alongside a younger brother and an older sister. He had a lot of trouble growing up stemming from the fact that his parents separated when he was young. The outlet that he had during this period was baseball, and he played a lot of it during his youth, but never really envisioned himself in an athletic career.
He then discovered the website YouTube, and figured that it was a good avenue for him to start as he was interested in gaining fame as well as fortune online. He did video blogs (vlogs) and videos related to weightlifting in his own channel but he was rarely noticed. After completing school, he then decided to work at AMP Radio as a programmer, while also maintaining his YouTube channel. YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the internet, and is the main source for video related content. Videos available there include live streams, movie trailers, music videos, educational videos, and many more. His channel was growing in strength, and soon he was enjoying success with many other YouTube celebrities.
Over the next few years, Solomita became a frequent collaborator of his girlfriend Jenna, and the two even started their own podcast and company. Their company is called Waffsicle and he serves as the co-owner while their podcast is focused on various topics mainly centered on their interests. They even started a YouTube channel for their company, which often showcases him travelling to various locations around the world with friends. He continues to maintain uploads to his personal channel, often containing vlogs, documenting his time spent with Jenna, their dogs, and his friends.
Aside from uploading content to YouTube, he has also turned to streaming for additional income, which is a trend that has become noticeable with numerous YouTubers in recent years. He streams from the website Twitch through a channel jointly owned with Marbles, often playing video games, often popular battle royale games such as “Playerunknown’s Battle Grounds” in which one player fights against 99 others in a shrinking map akin to the movie “Battle Royale”, on which the genre is based; he mainly streams for entertainment and not for competitive reasons.
Girlfriend – Jenna Marbles
A lot of Julien’s success is from his association with Jenna Marbles, who joined YouTube sometime in 2010 after doing various odd jobs. Her popularity grew significantly when she posted the video “How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking” which gained millions of views within a week, so continued to post videos in a similar trend which built her popularity. Her online fame has led her to numerous online collaborations, including appearances in “Epic Rap Battles of History” (ERB), “Ridiculousness”, and “Annoying Orange”.
She is the very first YouTube personality to be featured at Madame Tussauds in New York, and her fame has led her to numerous business opportunities. She hosts a program on SiriusXM Hits 1, and has also released a brand of dog toys based on her real life pets. She has ventured into film too, and was the executive producer of the project entitled “Maximum Ride”. She has one of the most popular channels on YouTube – according to statistics, she holds one of the most subscribed channels on the website, and is the eighth most popular channel operated by a woman. She’s been nominated for three Streamy Awards over the course of her career since 2010.
