Charli D’Amelio was the biggest earner in 2021, raking in $17.5 million via endorsements, TV show deals, and a clothing line, among other projects. D’Amelio has been branching out with new forms of content, her dance videos remain the most popular of her clips, and regularly see view counts above 40m.

Addison Rae, who made the jump to film acting for Netflix this year, came in at third. Bella Poarch also expanded her off-TikTok presence, with her singing career reaching new heights, while Josh Richards is the only male to make the TikTok top earners list.
