With his charismatic energy, Danny Duncan has become an internet sensation with his YouTube pranks and challenges. He is convinced that the video-sharing platform is the best place to showcase talent. And that’s how he earned his current success. As of 2022, Danny Duncan has an estimated net worth of $7 million.
Danny is from Englewood, Florida, and he was born on July 27, 1992. Interestingly, he also goes by Gary Winthrope, which is speculated by some to be his real name. He has a sister Susan Duncan and an unnamed father.
When he was still a child, his parents divorced. Because of this, he later had a half-brother Matthew, and Danny decided to live with his mother.
He completed his high school education at Lemon Bay High School. Because their financial situation was difficult, the man from Florida did not go to college. After graduating, he immediately went to work to help his mother.
Her first job was at a local Walgreens, but her time there was short-lived. Because Danny Duncan is a seasoned skateboarder, he was hired to teach actor Jason Lee some tricks.
While working together, Danny and Lee formed a close relationship. Danny’s sense of humor caught Lee’s attention and he advised him to continue playing alone. Jason also suggested that creating YouTube videos would be a good place to start.
This encounter inspired Duncan to start his eponymous YouTube channel in 2014. He initially posted videos on how to deal with ankle injuries and other topics that skaters would find helpful. The content was very specialized, but once he expanded his topics, his channel really took off!
Early in his online endeavors, Danny collaborated on several projects with fellow content creator Christopher Chan. Then he established a solid following from his prank videos.
In 2017, he was considered one of the top YouTubers in the United States when it came to pranks and dares. That same year, he launched Virginity Rocks merchandise and took it on tour across the country.
Aside from the humorous content, fans adored the online star for his relationship with young prankster Papa Jim, who sadly passed away in 2022. Currently, Danny has around 6.6 million subscribers on his channel.
Net worth and earnings
Danny Duncan’s videos average 600,000 views per day. As a result, this should generate him around $4,800 in daily YouTube ad revenue, or $1.7 million a year!
However, YouTube ads aren’t Danny’s only source of income. Sales of various merchandise items on his website have attracted impressive numbers and is now a family business. His merchandise store dannyduncan69.com sells a few million dollars worth of merchandise every year to fans.
He also earns additional income through sponsorship deals and selling tours across the United States. These numerous activities give him a net worth of $7 million.
Despite being a very outgoing online personality, Duncan doesn’t share much about his love life. It is likely that he is still single. He lives in a contemporary house in Los Angeles, California, where he drives a BMW i8 supercar. Previously, he owned a personalized Tesla Model 3 which he then destroyed!
