Meet the Twitch gaming streamers earning more than the Prime Minister


WERE you ever told off growing up for spending too much time sitting in front of your TV playing video games?.

For many millennials and Gen-Zers though, all those hours have paid off in spades. A new study has looked at how much the highest-earning streamers make each year on Twitch, a streaming platform widely used for broadcasting video games. And these top 10 female Twitch streamers are ALL earning more than Prime Minister Boris Johnson makes a year.

The Conservative leader for 2020/21 earned a total salary of £157,372.

That sum includes the salary Johnson is entitled to claim for his work as Prime Minister as well as his salary for being an MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

But this salary is eclipsed by all of the female streamers listed on the top ten earners list.

The study, conducted by MrQ, said the biggest Twitch earner was Sintica – who makes a whopping £665,259.98 a year.

Next was Amouranth, who wasn’t far behind in second place on £603,730.25.

While in third was CaptainPuffy on £358,944.48, just ahead of Pokimane on £355,793.77.

In tenth place was Pqueen who, according to the MrQ study, earns £163,445.81.

However, the biggest earning streamers aren’t necessarily the most popular.

According to the research, while Sintica is the highest-earning Twitch streamer – Pokimane is the most popular female streamer.

This is ahead of Amouranth and Pqueen.

Twitch is a streaming platform that is mainly used for gaming streaming but also features the Just Chatting section – which does what it says on the tin.

The study on the MrQ website says: “Twitch is the leading streaming platform for gamers all over the world who want to share their experiences with thousands of adoring fans. Traditionally, the gaming world is seen as a male-dominated one, however, in 2021 there are many big-name female Twitch streamers taking the platform by storm.

“We’ve taken a look at some of the most popular female streamers on Twitch, calculated how much they are making from subscriptions, their average annual views and current Twitch and Instagram followers to create the ultimate index of women on Twitch in 2021. Pokimane takes the top spot as the most popular woman on Twitch in 2021”.
