From entrepreneur, author and activist Tyler Oakley to rapper, dancer, singer Lilly Singh, these talented and creative stars have made it big on YouTube, each making over $5 million dollars a year. Huge communities of passionate fans make success possible for these stars.

So who else makes the cut? Comedian and YouTube personality Colleen Ballinger is tied in ninth place with comedy duo Rhett & Link at $5 million dollars a year. Rosanna Pansino hosts a baking channel for geeks, which places her in the top five of the list. YouTube channel Smosh, which is basically a television network hosted on YouTube, is also up there, making $7 million a year. 

However, it's no surprise that PewDiePie takes the number one spot for highest paid YouTubers. This video star publishes content of himself playing video games and talking about them -- and he's raking in nearly $15 million a year.
