Zach King is an American internet personality and “digital illusionist” that gained much of his initial online traction through Vine. He started posting on YouTube in 2008 and Vine in 2013, which makes him a relatively established figure on the internet. After posting his first TikTok in 2016 he exploded even further in popularity; at 68.5 million followers, he currently sits as the 6th most followed account on the platform.
King’s videos usually incorporate him seemingly doing magic, achieved through extensive editing of his videos. He describes the genre as “digital sleight of hand,” though he does make other types of content on occasion. He has won multiple awards for his videos, including YouTube’s NextUp Creators Contest in 2013 and the Shorty Award for best Vine artist in 2016.

Zach King’s net worth is estimated to be around $3-5 million as of 2022, according to Celebrity Net Worth. This seems to almost exclusively come from his own content, rather than sponsored posts or ad campaigns like other internet celebrities take part in. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly how much King makes given that he does not openly disclose his earnings.
King’s net worth is hard to qualify; while he certainly seems to be living comfortably, he does not talk about big purchases he makes, if he does in fact make such purchases. It is known that he and his wife have two sons – one adopted and one biological – and the couple have occasionally fostered children in the past. As such, it stands to reason that much of King’s income likely is either saved or goes to taking care of his family.
Likely almost all of King’s income is a result of social media payouts through avenues such as the TikTok creator fund and YouTube ad revenue. While it is impossible to know the exact numbers, some estimates, such as Celebrity Net Worth, put his earnings at $13,000 a day, or around $4.7 million a year, though this is more than likely on the higher end of what he might be making.
While definitely not what he is known for, King has appeared in three television and film roles so far, with two of these appearances having him play himself. King even appeared in a small role in the animated film Zootopia.
While these roles likely earned him some money, they seem to be intended more as fun cameos than an earnest attempt at exploring another avenue with which he can increase his income, and the roles themselves assuredly did not net him much in comparison to his social media earnings.
Zach King does not talk much about his spending or expenses. More than likely his main expenditure is his family, for whom he seems to have bought a home. Having kids and occasionally fostering seems to be his main focus.
