The Wealth of Ethan Bradberry
How rich is Ethan Bradberry? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $350,000, earned through a successful career on YouTube. 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
Ethan is of Italian and French descent, and grew up with two sisters and two brothers, being the eldest of them. While little is known about his childhood endeavors and his education, it is known that he discovered the website YouTube during its rise in popularity, leading him to envision a potential career on the website alongside his brother Moe. His brother had a passion for creating content, leaving Ethan to focus on how they could earn income.
Instead of them creating two individual accounts, the brothers settled on creating a collaborative channel so that they could share ideas, and also lessen the workload; Moe is often the writer and director of their content. They noticed as they started uploading videos, that their content focused on social experiments and pranks was getting the most attention. With their first prank video quickly going viral, they shifted their focus on any related video they possibly could to help develop their channel further. Soon, they were gaining high numbers of subscribers, and this in turn would steadily raise their income.
While Moe wanted to create content which was centered more on entertainment and fun, Ethan saw a potential in content that leaned more on the controversial side. They started various social experiments to attract both positive and negative attention towards their channel – it didn’t matter the type of attention, as long as they were getting the interactions they needed to earn income. They started doing horror pranks, and even did acting roles in their videos, which led them to collaborate with other YouTubers focused on pranks as well, but soon their videos started to attract criticism.
They’ve done pranks that have resulted in nearly violent outcomes, leading various content creators and online personalities to oppose the type of content they are doing. Things were going well for them, and at one point they were on track to become one of the most popular channels on YouTube, however, they reduced uploads to their channel in the past year, and the speculation is that their controversial content has led to a breaking point which has become divisive for their fans as well as the brothers. They have not uploaded any new content since early-2018.
Issues and Memes
In the brothers’ videos during the peak of their fame, Ethan always opened with the line “I’m Ethan Bradberry” and this phrase quickly caught traction online due to its overly aggressive delivery. Soon the short video clip of his intro was made into a meme, and numerous YouTubers started chiming in and making their own version of the intro. Edited videos of Ethan saying the line have also been posted on YouTube and gained a lot of popularity. Even hundreds of music remixes focused on the phrase were posted around the rise of the popularity of the meme.
The brothers also gained a lot of heat and criticism for creating a social experiment video intended to showcase the dangers of the website Craigslist. In the video, they seemingly answer a Craigslist ad to meet a woman and pretended to be criminals to harass the woman before revealing the entire meet up to be a social experiment. Critics of the brothers immediately noticed that the video was a fake, as the woman featured in the video was discovered to be an actress for hire. This led to the critics researching more into the brothers’ videos, and revealed that more of them were also fabricated for views.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of the romantic relationships of Ethan. He has managed to keep that aspect of his life away from the public, preferring not to talk about it even though a lot of his life is shared online. He mentioned at one point that he isn’t really interested in pursuing a long term relationship now, as he was busy with building his career. He states that during his free time, he loves spending it with his family.

In the past year, the Bradberry brothers seem to have taken a break from their collaborative channel, instead opting to create their own individual channels. This is further evidenced by the lack of uploads onto MoeandET. Aside from his YouTube account, Ethan is highly active on social media websites such as Instagram and Twitter – the former mostly posts throwback pictures and previews of upcoming projects such as YouTube uploads. His Twitter account posts some of his day to day thoughts, but he has not been posting as often on social media this last few months, and it is likely because he is busy with current projects.
