It’s all too easy to look at internet celebrities and claim that they rely heavily on their online subscribers because it’s entirely true. But after saying that one has to realize that since the internet is such a big part of our lives now people like Sommer Ray aren’t going to go away so quickly unless the interest of the audience, fickle as they are, wanes in an instant. Thanks to her ample curves and a media following that’s insanely high Sommer is able to maintain the kind of career that even a handful of actors could only dream about. Whether this is a long-term thing that will be there in the next five to ten years is hard to say, but there are plenty of those that would scoff at it even while admitting that she’s found something that people want and has decided to cash in on it while she can.
Here are a few other things that you might not know about Sommer.
10. She’s one of the many YouTube celebrities that keep coming out.
Ever since social media became a thing people have been looking for a way to make money with it and a lot of people have done just that, finding a way to get people to pay for the lifestyles they want by doing little more than the same things that others have done throughout the years but with a greater amount of success.
9. Her following on social media is simply astronomical.
If you thought a million followers was something then you might want to look at her following and wonder how anyone could get 17 to 18 million followers by posing in pictures and making workout videos. There are famous celebrities that have been around for years that couldn’t even accomplish this, so she must be doing something right.
8. A lot of her earnings come from fashion labels that she models in her videos and pictures.
It’s still a mystery why anyone gets paid so much for something like this when people can be depended upon to make their own minds up about what they want. But then, there are always going to be folks out there that are going to want to follow what a celebrity says and wear what they wear.
7. It sounds like much of her family is online and have their own followers as well.
Quite honestly it’s hard to really think of why online celebrities are given the kind of fortunes that many of them make but at the same time you can’t really fault them for getting that money since they found a way to make it without wearing themselves down too much.
6. Her net worth might amaze you.
She’s worth well over $4 million, and that’s not a joke. The amount she gets per video that she does is utterly insane and yet she doesn’t want for anything when it comes to work or money. This young woman is set up.
5. She’s a fitness enthusiast.
Throughout her internet career thus far she’s kind of let go of the fitness part a bit to focus on modeling, but she’s still in great shape as she still does workout videos that make her a good deal of money.
4. For being so popular there’s not a lot on her aside from her YouTube channel and Instagram photos.
There are articles on her but as far as in-depth information goes there’s not a whole lot that isn’t in her vlogs. This is where she tends to bare herself the most to her viewers, as it seems that most articles are brief and detail her career more than her person.
3. She’s the face of many different companies that sell fitness gear and swimwear.
This isn’t hard to imagine since she is good-looking and in very good shape. Perhaps it’s the idea that there are so many pretty faces and gorgeous bodies out there in show business that makes it hard to believe she’s worth so much.
2. Sommer earns around $26K per workout video that she posts.
This is for a workout video keep in mind. There are those that have been in this kind of business for longer than Sommer’s been active and have not made this kind of money on one video. This would kind of prove that there’s not a lot of justice in the world when it comes to who can earn more based on merit or hard work versus those that are gorgeous and have millions of admirers based on the fact.
1. She’s one of the many that might not have a job if not for social media.
For those that try to stay smug when saying this it’s still kind of pointless since so long as she can she’s likely to stay online and keep collecting the kind of paychecks she’s been getting. But it is an accurate point.
Right now it’s hard not to roll my eyes but one thing is clear, she’s making the money and there’s a lot of people willing to support her.
