Logan Paul vs the Average American - People Comparison
We return today with another YouTube star, following our show on Jake Paul, the younger brother of today’s focus. Such “stars”, seeing that they made it online with debatable levels of talent, have become both millionaires and objects of mockery. We might criticize them, but the star of today’s show according to Social Blade has over 13 million subscribers and his videos have accumulated over 2.5 billion views since August 29th, 2015. He just missed out on Business Insider’s top YouTube stars in 2017, but with scores of actor roles in the pipeline and all his other projects, he’s fast on his way to amassing a fortune.
Logan Paul was born on April 1, 1995. That makes him 22 years old. Also born on April Fool’s Day are Robert Downey Jr., Pharrell Williams, Russell Crowe, Kristen Stewart and novelist Milan Kundera. The median age in the USA is currently 37.8 years old. 18-34 year olds, or millennials, make up 23.4 percent of the American population, or 75.5 million people. But how does his age compare to you boys and girls watching this clip? According to YouTube demography stats released in 2017, of the 5 billion videos that are watched every day, eight out of ten of them are seen by 18-49 year-olds. Only 11 percent of those videos are watched by 18-24 year-olds, meaning that Logan’s age group might not be his biggest fan base.
For 22, he is doing quite well in terms of making money. According to Forbes, for every sponsored Facebook post, he earns a whopping $150,000, and another $80,000 for sponsored content on Instagram. His net worth in 2017 is thought to be about 6 million dollars. This is around two million more than his younger brother, Jake, is worth. Logan also makes quite a bit of money from selling clothes and other things such as smartphone cases. As for average Americans, his millionaire status joins another 3 percent of the 323-plus million population in the USA. The average millionaire also has to wait until the ripe old age of 32 to amass his/her money. The regular Joe in America has an average net worth of $6,676 according to the U.S. Census Bureau, while the average worth of 65-69 years olds is 194,229 dollars. Logan is doing just fine when we consider that in America, if you have an advanced degree, the average wage is around $72,824 a year. Logan, like his brother, wasn’t exactly the studious type.
He was in fact more of a wild card, an “adrenalin junkie”, that was good at football and wrestling. Unlike his younger sibling, he did finish high school, but then he dropped out of college. He joins a lot of other dropouts, though. According to College Atlas, “70% of Americans will study at a 4-year college, but less than 2/3 will graduate with a degree.” But this also means that he’s exceptional, given that in 2016 the median wage for someone in the U.S. with a high school diploma but without a university degree was 26,000 dollars a year. According to the YouTube channel “How Much”, Logan makes around 2.5-3.5 million dollars a year.
What about Logan the man? Well, according to various gossip websites, he’s been in a bunch of relationships with girls, but it’s thought right now he is single. He’s not alone, with the status “single” being very common in America these days. A 2014 Pew Report said that by the time this young generation gets to the age of 50, only a quarter will have been married. The U.S. Census Bureau further states that in 2016, 110.6 million Americans above the age of 18 were single, which was 42 percent of all Americans. We don’t know if Logan slept with his former GFs, but if he did, he joins the average American who popped his or her cherry at 17 years old. Research also shows that between 12-14 percent of adults aged 20-24 have never had sexual intercourse. By the age of 44, only 0.3 percent of American adults said they hadn’t had sex.
Logan is single, does that mean he’s not attractive? The young man is 6’2” (188 cm) and weighs 181 lbs (82 kg). He has blue eyes, blond hair, and his build is described as athletic. His is also white. How does that compare to the average American? Well, the average height of an American man is 5’9, (178.8 cm) and the average weight is 195 lbs (88 kilos), according to the Center for Disease Control. If he’s a natural blonde, he joins only 1 in 20 Americans. As for blue eyes, only 17 percent of people in the U.S. have that eye color. As a white person, he joins approximately 77 percent of fellow Americans.
What about Logan’s life and habits? Recent reports state that he lives in a lush $6.6 million dollar, 9,000-square-foot Encino estate in the Rancho Estates neighborhood of Long beach, California. The U.S Census Bureau states that in September 2017, the average price of an American home on the market was $385,200 and the median price was $319,700. You’ll know from our other shows that on world average, Americans live in very large houses, but Logan’s 9,000 square feet is a fair bit bigger than the American average of 2,687 square feet in 2016, again according to the U.S Census Bureau.
Does Logan go to church? His religion is stated as Christian. That isn’t surprising as around 97 percent of all Ohio residents – where Logan grew up – that say they are religious also say that that religion is Christianity. If Logan actually is Christian, he joins 70.6 percent of the American population, which is the biggest Christian population in the world. He’s a good boy, too, by the sounds of it. On Twitter in 2014, he tweeted that he did not smoke or drink. He wrote, “I don't drink or smoke but I stay up late because I'm a rebel.” We cannot find any evidence to refute his claim. If he is telling the truth, he joins 85 out of 100 U.S. adults aged 18 years or older that don’t smoke, according to the CDC; and around 30 percent of American adults that never drink alcohol.
Instead Logan likes to work out, as you can see in numerous clips when he shows off his muscled body at the gym. He is not average, as the CDC writes that 80 percent of American adults don’t get the recommended amounts of exercise. However, he joins 31 percent of Americans aged 18-24 that do. He also has a pet parrot he adores. He once wrote on Twitter about the parrot - on his Maverick the Parrot account - “My mom wants me to get a girlfriend yet I can't even get my own bird to kiss me.” We might wonder if knows that male brits often call their girlfriends “birds”. According to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey, 68 percent of American households are home to some kind of pet, although Logan joins just 7.9 percent of pet-owning households that have a bird. That’s about 20 million birds hanging out in American homes.
So, what do you think of this good ole American boy? Are you one of the people who says he is a well-deserved millionaire and celebrity, or are you one of his many detractors? Let us know in the comments!
