El Rubius - Net Worth $5.5 Million

Rubén Doblas Gundersen:  known by his pseudonym El Rubius or elrubiusOMG, is a Spanish YouTube personality whose channel primarily consists of gameplays and vlogs. Also an author with several books under his belts Gundersen’s net worth is $5.5 million.

Like PewDiePie and the Californian duo behind Smosh, Doblas Gundersen is part of the original wave of YouTubers, known for their high-energy, personality-driven vlogs (video blogs). Today, he’s the site’s eighth most popular user.
Yet beyond his hardcore fanbase, Doblas Gundersen is a relative unknown outside Spanish-speaking areas. This interview, held in his minimalist Madrid apartment, is his first with an English-language publication.

Doblas Gundersen began recording his video games aged 16 to amuse friends, and sharing the footage, with humorous commentary, on an up-and-coming website called YouTube. Thrilled with 400 monthly views, he was shocked when a gameplay of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim racked up 600,000 hits in a week. His fanbase rocketed and by 21, he realized YouTubing could become his career.

Doblas Gundersen’s subscribers are mainly 14 to 22-year-old males, with females comprising 30% of his views. His fans mostly live in Mexico, Spain and Argentina, but he keeps a close eye on analytics and says he knows an 80-year-old Chinese woman who watches every upload religiously. He began to be aware of the extent of his fame when he visited Argentina two years ago. “Three thousand people were waiting at the airport. We hadn’t organized much security – everyone was screaming and grabbing at me.”

Doblas Gundersen has worked with big corporate names including Pepsiand McDonald’s.
