Andrew Rea is an American YouTuber from New York who describes himself as a ‘wannabe chef’. His channel used to be known as Binging With Babish. He has a talent for making the different unique dishes from fictional worlds come to life. He started out in February 2016 with a complex turkey burger from the comedy Parks & Recreation. At around Thanksgiving in 2016, his channel took off after he made the legendary ‘moistmaker’ sandwich made by Ross Gellar in Friends.
Some of the popular videos he has made include prison sauce from Goodfellas, World;s Greatest Sandwich from Spanglish and Jake’s sandwich from Adventure Time.
How Much Money Does Andrew Rea Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 650,000 subscribers as of mid 2017 and has accumulated over 40 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 400,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $600 per day ($220,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by different factors like device played on, location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement etc. There is also a program known as Google Preferred where deep pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. The ad rates here are higher than normal. Apart from ads, they also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads.
