How did King Bach Make His Money and Wealth?
Born on June 26, 1988 in Toronto, Ontario, King Bach (Real Name: Andrew B. Bachelor) spent the majority of his life in Florida, after his family relocated there when he was just two years old. While he was in college, he decided to join Vine after hearing about a friend’s incredible success on the video-sharing platform.
Putting his sense of humor to good use, he started to upload short comedy skits onto his account in 2013. From there, he eventually began to portray various cartoon-like characters including an exuberant caricature of himself whom he went on to name as “King Bach”. Quickly gaining followers with his unique content, it didn’t take long for him to become one of the most-followed users on Vine; by the spring of 2015, he had taken the number one spot on the platform.
As his presence grew on Vine, King Bach started to collaborate with numerous brands, uploading a variety of sponsored clips. At one point, he allegedly charged big-name companies such as Samsung upwards of $1,000 for every 100,000 followers that he had, for him to post a sponsored Vine. Seeing as how he had well over eight million followers on his account, it’s safe to say that his popularity on the platform had earned him a large chunk of change. In fact, he received so many requests from companies at one point, that he had to turn down most of them.
Although Vine has since been shut down, King Bach’s social media success continues on various other platforms- one of which includes his Youtube account. While Vine may have brought him his initial wave of fame, his Youtube account is also nothing to scoff at. Since he joined the site in January of 2012, he has accumulated over 1.3 million subscribers and more than 53 million view counts.
Seeing as how Youtube artists are able to earn upwards of a few dollars per 1000 views, we can probably assume that King Bach has banked an incredible amount from his videos alone. One of the most well known comedians on the site, his videos easily earn over a million videos on average; his most popular upload to date, a parody trailer for the movie Logan has since been viewed over 4 million times. One can only imagine how much that has yielded the Youtuber.
Speaking of Youtube, he has also starred in a few of Bart Baker’s popular parody videos such as the ones for Pharrell William’s Happy, Ariana Grande’s Problem, and Katy Perry’s Dark Horse. All of said parodies have since been viewed millions of times online.

Finally in 2015, the social media star made his big screen debut in the romance drama film, We Are Your Friends, playing alongside Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley, and Zac Efron. After grossing $1.7 million during its opening weekend in theaters, it went on to take in $3.6 million domestically- which is fairly impressive considering its production budget of $2 million.
His next big break on television came when he was cast as one of the series regulars in the Adult Swim comedy, Black Jesus. His first lead role on the small screen, it only further solidified his place in the acting industry. Originally premiered in the summer of 2014, the show ran for two seasons until November of 2015.

That same year, he also took part in the comedy horror movie, Meet the Blacks. Despite being a relatively low budget film, having been produced from a budget of $900,000, it surprised everyone by taking in $4.1 million during its opening weekend. Altogether, it eventually grossed over $9 million at the box office.
