Andrew Rea Net Worth In 2022
Andrew Rea has an estimated net worth of $6 million dollars in 2022.
Most of his career earnings come from his famous culinary channel, Babish Culinary Universe.
Now he is also a published author of his two famous cookbooks, Binging with Babish and Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers, which got quite popular and helped him earn a lot out of it too.
His YouTube cookery channel, Babish Culinary Universe, was inspired by his favorite character from The West Wing, Oliver Babish.
Even though the account was created back in 2006, the videos related to cooking weren't uploaded till 2016. After struggling with depression for some time, he decided to purchase $4000 in filming equipment to begin his cooking journey again.
Andrew started filming in his apartment by making different smoothie videos without showing his face. This way of filming has been his signature style. On February 10, 2016, Andrew posted his first video Binging with Babish, inspired by Parks and Recreation's Burger cook-off.
After his channel got 100,000 subscribers, he partnered with his good friend and former attorney, Sawyer Carter Jacobs.
He opened a new cooking channel on YouTube known as Basics with Babish, which was mostly directed toward amateur chefs and learners.
He analyzed and found out that most of his viewers were males, and 80 percent of them were between the age group of 18 to 35.
During the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown period, Andrew faced the most growth on his cooking channels. His subscriber counts increased from 6 million to 8 million within a few months.
He announced through an Instagram post that he got engaged to the producer of Babish Culinary Universe, Jess Opon on May 13, 2021. Later, these two sweethearts got married at the 9 million subscribers episode and were coordinated by a famous comedian and Universal Life Church ordained minister Joel McHale.
His cooking channel, Babish Culinary Universe, now has 9.92 million subscribers and total video views of almost 2.4 billion. His yearly estimated earnings out of YouTube is almost $911,000.
