Kwebbelkop is a content creator famous on YouTube for his vlogs and gaming videos. He is one of the biggest online personalities in the Netherlands. Apart from playing, he also publishes his own games through his company, Webble Games. As of 2022, Kwebbelkop has a net worth of $20 million.
Kwebbelkop’s real name is Jordi van den Bussche. The curly-haired gamer was born on June 1, 1995 to Ben and Brigittela in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He was raised with a sister named Lauren.
When he was just two years old, his parents got divorced, and he chose to live with his mother and went to see his father twice a week. At age six, he learned he had lazy eyes and had surgery. Four years later, he also discovered he had dyslexia.
His childhood wasn’t easy, and it didn’t help that his mom and stepfather were alcoholics. They often maltreated Jordi and his sister. Despite this, the Amsterdam native finished school in 2011.
Jordi started his YouTube channel back in 2008, mainly to watch videos. After graduating, he shared his first piece of content, playing Call of Duty. However, he stopped uploading videos for a while because his computer was broken.
In 2012, he started making daily videos about games such as Minecraft, GTA 5, Assassin’s Creed, Happy Wheels, and Skyrim. The following year, he worked with fellow rising YouTubers Jelly and Slogo to form the group Robust.
The trio grew in popularity together for their vlogs, challenges, and gameplay. However, Kwebbelkop left the team in 2019 because of mental health concerns and was replaced by Crainer. As a solo creator, Kwebbelkop now has 14.9 million subscribers on the video platform.
Sadly, since April 2021 his viewership has fallen by 90%. Some of this is due to the decline in the popularity of the games he plays, Fortnite is a prime example. Also, some fans have highlighted that Jordi’s content hasn’t evolved with the times.
In 2018, Jordi released an indie game called Impossible Runner, which earned decent success. When he ventured out on his own, Jordi established a game development company called Webble Games.
Its first project was Havocado, a multiplayer fighting game launched in 2019. The following year, he became the owner of a YouTube channel called Tiger. He frequently appeared in the videos, but the main host was another personality named Hassan.
Due to internal conflict, Jordi left Tiger in 2021. After this, he went back to focusing on his primary channel. He also invested in the mobile phone accessory Backbone and co-founded an NFT launchpad called LaunchMyNFT.
Net Worth and Earnings
Kwebbelkop’s YouTube channel pulls in around 15 million views on average. Assuming a CPM rate of $4, this means Jordi would make around $60,000 per month in ad revenue alone. At the height of the channel’s popularity, he would have easily been making double that figure.
As a popular content creator, he mainly earns income with YouTube ads, brand deals and affiliate marketing. He’s also planning to launch a merch collection soon. This is why he is worth an estimated $20 million.
In the past, Kwebbelkop dated a girl named Jamie, but they split up in 2016. After that, he got into a relationship with fellow YouTuber Azzyland, but it ended in 2020. Today, he is single and living his best life in a GTA 5-inspired penthouse in Amsterdam. Kwebbelkop purchased the property for $7.5 million in early 2022. In addition to this, he drives around in a Mercedes G Wagen.
