Alex Gonzaga is making a lot of money from her Youtube channel.
The actress, whose vlogs are a source of constant joy for most of us, boasts quite a large following on Youtube and an average of about two and a half million (give or take) views per upload. It shouldn’t be a surprise that she’s making bank, but if we’re being honest, we still are.
In a recent interview in “Inside the Cinema” with Boy Abunda, Alex revealed, “Here in the Philippines, I get 'yung percentage sa ads na pumapasok sa akin. It can range from, mostly nag-six digits talaga siya. Makikita mo kasi from the YouTubers na from small houses ngayon lumalaki na, from condo-apartment later on in life, lumalaki na.”
She continued, “So depende 'yun sa dami ng videos mo, sa dami ng views mo, so doon pumapasok 'yung pera sa'yo. So kapag marami kang videos, marami kang views, mas maraming pumapasok na ads sa'yo so mas marami kang pagpipilian na videos.”
In spite of this, she maintains she’s not vlogging for the money.
According to her incredibly supportive sister, legendary actress Toni Gonzaga, Alex began her YouTube channel as a form of “therapy”.
She said, “It was not for the money, it was not for her to monetize it...it was something for her to release her personality so that people will stop comparing her to me and accept her and embrace her for who she is.”
With her three million subscribers and ever-growing fan base, it’s safe to say that Alex has achieved that and more. Keep doing you, sis!
Aside from being a professional vlogger, Alex is also a host in the hit reality series “Pinoy Big Brother: Otso”. In 2014, she appeared in the Vice Ganda-led comedy “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” which was Star Cinema’s official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival that year.
