For many people that person is British video blogger and radio personality Daniel “Dan” Howell. After years of hard work Howell has gained more than 6 million subscribers worldwide and has been able to maintain a fairly successful career. So, what is Daniel Howell’s net worth?
Who is Daniel Howell?
Before jumping into how much he’s worth you should know who Howell is. He was born in Berkshire, England in June 11, 1991. During his teenage years he worked a retail job (as many teens do). Once he graduated high school he went on to study law at the University of Manchester but dropped out after only one year to pursue a career in video blogging.
That decision proved to be a good one for Howell though. By 2011 he and fellow YouTuber Phil Lester moved in together and began collaborating on YouTube projects.

Daniel Howell’s Career
Howell’s career didn’t start after he’d left college though. In October 2009 he uploaded his first video to YouTube titled “HELLO INTERNET.” After he’d uploaded the video to the site some of his friends at the time (including Phil Lester) encouraged him to continue vlogging.
The young man didn’t stop there though. He launched even more channels and even began to collaborate with other YouTubers in the years to come. As previously stated, over his various channels he has accrued more than 6 million subscribers AND 668 million views.
YouTube isn’t where Dan’s career starts and stops. He has a number of other sources of income as well. For years he and Phil Lester hosted a BBC 1 Radio show on Monday nights. Howell has also hosted awards shows, voiced cartoon characters and even produced a sports documentary. As if that wasn’t enough Howell has also co-written a book (alongside Lester) that launched just shortly before the pair headed out on tour for their theatrical stage show.
Daniel Howell’s Net Worth
With all that being said, Daniel Howell’s net worth has to be huge, right? Most YouTubers don’t see those subscriber numbers period, let alone within just a few years. Currently Howell’s net worth is estimated to be about $2.5 million.
When you talk about Daniel Howell’s net worth (or his success in general) you can’t really go without mentioning his partner-in-crime Phil Lester. Lester, who has an estimated net worth of about $1.9 million, has worked with Howell on practically all of the projects he’s produced. This means a portion of the income usually goes into Lester’s pocket as well. If you look at this pair like you would, say, Marty and Moog from MightCarMods, you can combine their net worths for a total $4.4 million.
With that taken into consideration, Howell is doing really well for himself. He and Lester have been (and continue) to work hard on new projects and new ways to engage their loyal audience. Don’t be surprised if Howell and his best friend continue to excel in the future and join the ranks of the richest YouTubers out there.
