Just how successful are some YouTubers? Well, YouTube personality Jordan "CaptainSparklez" Maron mostly plays Minecraft, just spent $4.5 million on a new mansion in the Hollywood Hills. His new mansion is just down the road from the massive house that the creator of Minecraft, Markus "Notch" Persson, purchased recently.
CaptainSparklez has over 8.8 million subscribers, and has a decent amount of subscribers on Twitch too, with over 1.2 million. Maron has over 1.9 billion views on YouTube, which has provided him with the bank account to dump down $4.5 million on a new house. Not too bad for playing games, hey, Mom?
