How did Carter Reynolds Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on May 24, 1996 in North Carolina, Carter Reynolds grew up in the town of Valdese with his older sister, Kealia. Unfortunately, not much has been revealed about his childhood. Having said that, we do know that he went to Jimmy C. Draughn High School as a teen- he later graduated in 2014. Like many teenagers his age, he got involved with social media during his last year in high school.
In 2013, he jumped onto the Vine bandwagon- the latest social media fad that allowed its users to upload and share six-second long clips. Quickly getting the hang of the app, he later posted a series of short skits, which over time, garnered him a decent amount of followers. As his presence on the platform grew, Reynolds started to post a greater variety of videos from pranks on his mom to collaborations with other stars.
However, it wasn’t until he became a member of the Magcon (which stands for “Meet and Greet Convention”) Boys that he first rose to fame. A group of social media personalities, the collective toured various shopping malls in the country in attempts to raise their profiles further. Aside from Reynolds, the crew also consisted of Jacob Whitesides, Taylor Caniff, Hayes Grier, Jack Gilinsky, Aaron Carpenter, and Cameron Dallas, among a few others.
After a year of collaborating with the group however, Reynolds made the decision to leave Magcon- right in the middle of a tour. In an unexpected twist, the Vine star described the collective as being “shady” and that he had never once felt like he “was being treated like family.” Still, the teen had already garnered himself a considerable following on Vine by then. By the time it was announced that Vine would be shutting down, he already amassed over 4.6 million followers on the app, making him one of the most popular personalities on the platform.
Now, it’s no secret that Vine can be a huge money maker. With the audience that he had, there’s no question that Reynolds had managed to bank a considerable amount from the site. But how much? According to sources, it’s not uncommon for brands and companies to compensate Vine users upwards of a few thousand dollars for a single endorsement campaign. Of course, the more popular you are, the more offers you would receive.
As one of Vine’s most popular users, Reynolds was allegedly bringing in thousands of dollars simply by posting six-second long videos at the peak of his career in 2015. Ultimately, it didn’t take long for brands to notice his potential as a collaborator. Though we don’t have an exact amount as to how much the teen had earned in total, it most likely would have been an eye-opening figure.
Aside from Vine- which is now defunct, the North Carolina native has also been working on growing his following on his other social media accounts. For instance on Twitter, he currently has close to 3 million followers. Prior to reaching the one million follower mark, Reynolds had launched a follower campaign- #Carterto200K. Incredibly successful, it quickly helped him to gain 200K fans on Twitter; within four months, he had broke the 1 million follower mark.
In addition to that, he also has a decent following on Youtube under the username, ItsMrCartell. Although his channel isn’t particularly active, he has managed to amass over 842K subscribers with more than 17.4 million views as of August 2017. So far, his most popular upload, Chapstick Challenge – Carter Reynolds & Maggie Lindemann has been viewed over 4.6 million times. Some of his other top videos include Cotton Ball Challenge, What Type of Music Do I Listen To? and I Got a Dolla!.
As you probably already know, it’s not uncommon for Youtubers to make a little bit of extra cash through Google’s partnership program. By displaying ads on their videos, users are able to make anywhere from $2 to $5 per monetized view, depending of course- on their location, content, audience, etc. Given that a celebrity receives millions upon millions of views on a regular basis, the earnings easily stack up- it’s not unheard of for some of the site’s top stars to make tens of thousands of dollars per month, simply from posting videos.
So how much has Carter Reynolds made from Youtube so far? A few simple calculations tell us that he would have made at least $10,000 from the site so far- not too bad for earning some passive income!
On Instagram, the 21-year-old is also a social media influencer with over 3.4 million followers. On average, his posts receive anywhere from 40K to 70K likes each. Considering the reach that he has, it wouldn’t be surprising if he were to receive endorsement offers and the like from companies. Similar to how it is on Vine, brands can be fairly generous when it comes to advertising. Too bad it’s almost impossible to know how much one has earned from said gigs.
At the peak of his popularity during 2014-2015, Reynolds also participated in a handful of public events, all of which would have presumably, earned him a decent booking fee. For instance, he took part in the DigiFest in New York City and at the Virtuoso Fest in Los Angeles, California in 2014. In 2015, the teen was also present at an Outdoors at the Palladium event in Worcester, and a TD Echo Beach event in Toronto, Canada. Most recently last summer, he was also a guest at the O2 Institute Birgminham in the UK.
As far as other ventures go, he made a brief appearance in the Netflix series, Chasing Cameron (2016), starring fellow social media star Cameron Dallas last year. Though he hasn’t taken on much acting in the past, he will be playing a supporting role in an upcoming horror film called, Float Trip (2017), according to IMDb.
Currently it is estimated that the 21-year-old star has a net worth of $500,000. Drawing from what we’ve said above, it’s clear that he had earned most of this from the peak of his popularity as a Vine star. Aside from that however, it’s assumed that he has also banked some from his other endeavors such as the public events that he’s attended in the past and what he’s made from his other social media accounts (E.g. Youtube, Instagram). Though his prime days appear to be over, Reynolds still has himself a decent following online.

2015 Scandal with Former Girlfriend
In 2015, Reynolds came under fire after after he was seen pressuring his then girlfriend, Maggie Lindemann into performing oral sex with him on camera. In the video, she is noticeably uncomfortable- despite having stated that “[it] makes [her] so uncomfortable”, he continued to chant “Do it” in the clip.
To make matters even worse, Reynolds was nineteen at the time while his girlfriend was only sixteen. Considering how the age of consent is eighteen in Los Angeles, the act would be considered an attempted statutory rape.
