Rhett and Link Net Worth $3.6 Million

Rhett and Link met each other in 1984 while attending Buies Creek Elementary School. Their YouTube name “Good Mythical Morning” comes from their childhood activity of coloring-in mythical creatures together. They then attended Harnett Central High School and during this time did some filming, as well as joining a punk rock band entitled “The Wax Paper Dogz”. They then attended North Carolina State University together after matriculating, becoming roommates. After graduating, Link was employed at IBM, while Rhett went to work at Black & Veatch.

However, soon the duo would quit their jobs as engineers to focus on their YouTube channel – “Good Mythical Morning” – which is now the 46th most subscribed to YouTube channel, garnering over 12 million subscribers, and which is broadcast in a talk show format. They also have the YouTube channel “Rhett & Link” with over 4 million subscribers, and other channels they’ve launched include “Good Mythical MORE”, and “This is Mythical”. Some of their most popular videos have attracted over 20 million views, including “Epic Rap Battle: Nerd vs. Geek”, and “Earing a Scorpion – Bug War Challenge”. They have also made guest appearances on other YouTube channels, including “Epic Rap Battles of History”, and the “Fine Brothers”. Over the years, their net worth has increased significantly from all these activities.

The two are also involved in many sponsored video content and web advertisements. Thanks to their popularity, they’ve been approached by big companies such as Cadillac, McDonalds and Wendy’s, and their net worth has risen considerably thanks to these promotions. They have also created a television show entitled “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings”, as well as creating web commercials for Taco Bell. They’ve also worked with Build.com, Gillette, Hot Pockets, GEICO, and Amazon Echo, all adding steadily to their net worth.

Aside from business, the duo also created a podcast in 2013 called “Ear Biscuits”, which talks a lot about their personal lives. Their podcast is number 14 on the US Comedy Charts, and they were awarded a Shortly Award for Best Podcast thanks to their success with the show.

Rhett and Link have appeared on several television shows too, including “Conan”, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”, and “Lopez Tonight”. They’ve also published a New York Times Best Seller entitled “Rhett and Link’s Book of Mythicality: A Field Guide to Curiosity, Creativity, and Tomfoolery” in 2017, and went on a book tour of the US to promote the volume.

For their personal life, it is known that Link married Christy White in 2000 and they have three children. Rhett married Jessie Lane in 2001 and they have two children. They all reside in Los Angeles, California.
