How rich is he, as of now? Alex Ernst Net Worth
As of early 2020, Alex Ernst’s net worth is estimated to be as high as $2 million, earned from being successfully involved in the entertainment industry, and monetizing his YouTube videos through advertisements. Additionally, Alex creates sponsored posts and shares them across his social media accounts, which has also increased his fortune.
Early Life, Nationality, Ethnicity, Educational Background
Alex Ernst spent his early years in his hometown of Belle Plaine, where he was raised with his brother named John and sister named Emma by their father, Rex Ernst, and mother, Anita Schiltz.
His parents divorced when Alex was young, and his father remarried to Tanya Whittekiend-Edwards. Alex is an American by nationality, belongs to White Caucasian ethnic group, and is a Christian. He went to Belle Plaine Senior High School, from which he matriculated in 2014.
Alex Ernst launched his official self-titled YouTube channel just for fun in May 2009. As the time passed, he became popular, and eventually started his career as a contributor to the collaborative YouTube channel called ‘OurPizzaGang’ in 2013.
He distinguished himself in the videos as a talented voice actor, since he did various voice overs of such characters as Eric Cartman from “South Park”, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad”, Morgan Freeman from “Scooby Doo”, Peter Griffin from “Family Guy”, among many others. However, the channel became inactive in the following year.
So in 2014 Alex took a step further and created his official account on Vine, a highly popular platform for six-second-length videos. He started making comedy videos uploaded onto his Vine account, which gained him a lot of attention.
Alex had almost one million followers and five million loops at the time when Vine was shut down in early 2017.
Rise to Fame through David Dobrik Vlogs
Alex gained enormous popularity after appearing regularly in the immensely popular comedy vlogs of famous Slovakian YouTuber David Dobrik, between 2015 and 2016. He starred in Dobrik’s vlogs as a part of The Vlog Squad, alongside such famous YouTubers and Viners as Zane Hijazi, Jason Nash, Toddy Smith, Liza Koshy, and Corinna Kopf to name a few. During that time, Alex even guest-starred in an episode of Gabbie Hanna’s “The Gabbie Show”, in which he sang the parody version of the song “Baby It’s Cold Outside”.
Continued Success and Film Debut

Most recently, he appeared in another Brandon Calvillo short action film entitled “The Conspiracy Part II” in 2018, and then guest-starred in an episode of the online series “DashieGames” in 2020.
Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook
Alex expanded his influence across other social media platforms since he launched his official Twitter account under the username ‘@AlexErnst’, as well as his official Instagram account under the username ‘ernst’.
