Logan Paul has ventured into multiple endeavors since he became famous but he is mostly known as an internet personality, particularly, a YouTuber. Logan and his younger brother, Jake, are some of the most popular social media stars known to the world. And perhaps, among the first group of individuals who showed that one could make a living out of creating various kinds of videos and sharing them online.
Thanks to this, he has become quite a controversial figure whom many has sought to “cancel”. The controversy that came close to ruining his career happened in December 2017 when he visited “suicide forest” in Japan, filmed the decomposing body of a man who recently committed suicide, and shared it on his YouTube page.
His channel was temporarily demonetized after the video went viral and he endured quite an enormous backlashing that forced him to tender an apology and donate $1 million to suicide prevention agencies.
Logan has tried to stay out of trouble since then but he has been embroiled in other controversies that range from making insensitive comments about homosexuals to removing a fish from a pond to give it CPR.
Amid all of this, his fame continues to grow. Logan has millions of dedicated fans and followers scattered all over the world. Apart from keeping up with his channels, they follow his private life and search for information on trivial facts like his height and weight.

Disregarding the fact that he is famous, Logan Paul’s exhibition boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the things that stirred people’s interest in knowing exactly how tall he is. Anyway, anyone with half an eye could tell that the American YouTuber is a tall fellow.
Logan Paul stands at 6 feet 2 inches (188 cm) and is taller than most citizens of the United State.

Logan confirmed this to AskMen, relating that he ensures he gets a “solid sweat” at least six times a week. He does not only frequent the gym as a routine but endeavors to push himself to the extreme. “It’s all mental”, he said; and explained that he gets through his harsh and intense workout sessions by telling himself he would die if he fails to reach his target.

8. The 27 Years Old Internet Personality First Gained Popularity on Vine
Logan Alexander Paul was born on the 1st of April 1995 and his place of birth was in Westlake, Ohio. He has always been inclined to creating videos. From what we gathered, he made videos for a YouTube Channel called Zoosh when he was only 10 years old. Logan later enrolled at Westlake High School where football and wrestling captured his interest. Nonetheless, he never gave up on creating videos. When Vine came onboard, he embraced the platform and started sharing sketches on the defunct social networking site that allowed six-seconds video clip uploads.
Logan became popular on Vine and at some point in 2015, he was touted as the 10th most influential figure on the site. For reasons that many people are yet to understand, Twitter, who had acquired Vine in October 2012, decided to stop users from sharing their content on the platform in October 2016. With that, content creators began to migrate to other similar social media sites, especially YouTube. Logan had already created his TheOfficialLoganPaul channel on YouTube in October 2013. All he needed to do was to focus more on it.

After he graduated from high school in his hometown, he decided to further his education at the public research university in Athens, Ohio – Ohio University. At the school, he majored in Industrial Engineering. Logan continued to create and share videos on Vine and as his followers ballooned, he realized he needed to devote more time to it, something that his academic pursuit wouldn’t allow. Logan had to choose, and he decided to drop out of college.
Leaving college in 2014, he moved to Los Angeles where he lived in an apartment with other Vine stars, creating and sharing videos. His decision to drop out of college seems to be a good call as the YouTuber has accomplished quite a lot as an internet personality. As of this writing, he has over 66 million followers across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
6. His Fame Has Spread to The Traditional Entertainment Industry
When Logan Paul relocated to Los Angeles to focus on being a content creator, part of his dream was to pursue a career in entertainment beyond social media. Over the years that followed, the YouTuber established himself as one of the most popular social media stars in the world and has also penetrated the traditional entertainment industry. Logan Paul is an actor who has played several roles in television shows and in feature films.
Some of his most notable small-screen roles include Rayn in the “Intimidation Game” episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Theo Engelsen in two episodes of Stitchers, and Kirk in “The First Law of Drik” episode of Bizaardvark.

You will also find Logan as Blake Redding in the YouTube Premium films, The Thinning and its sequel, The Thinning: New World Order.
5. The YouTuber Has Recorded Some Success as a Singer
Unless you are a devoted follower of the YouTuber, you probably don’t know that he has a couple of songs to his name. To the best of our knowledge, his first attempt at making music was in 2016 when he dropped a single titled “2016”. The following year, he dropped “Help Me Help You”, “No Handlebars”, “Outta My Hair”, and “Santa Diss Track”. His next song was 2018’s “The Number Song” and his most recent songs are “Going Broke” and “2020”; both singles were released in 2020.
Of all his songs, Help Me Help You is the most successful. Logan featured the American boy band, Why Don’t We. The song sold at least 40,000 units in Canada and was certified Gold by Music Canada. It was also certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as it sold no fewer than a million units in the United States. Its video has already been viewed over 281.1 million times.
4. He Is Also a Professional Boxer
Can someone who has had only one professional fight be considered a professional boxer? No? What if he has had an exhibition match with one of the most famous and accomplished boxers in the world? Well, as much as people have been wary of Logan Paul’s involvement in boxing, contending that he’s trivializing the sport to consolidate on his Internet fame, the YouTuber is hoping to gain some respect in the field as a professional. Boxing, and indeed combat sports at large has always fascinated Logan Paul since his childhood days.
As hinted earlier, he wrestled in high school and even qualified for Division I Wrestling Individual Championships. Logan’s first notable boxing match was against a fellow YouTuber, KSI; this was in 2018. The following year, he had his first professional boxing match with the same British YouTuber and lost via split decision. What followed was his exhibition match in June 2021 with the former five-division world champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
3. Logan Paul Made Roughly $10 Million from The Exhibition Match with Mayweather
While people were clearly dissatisfied with the match, Logan and Floyd were certainly not disappointed with what they pocketed from the bout which reportedly sold over one million pay-per-views. From the pact he made before the fight went down at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, Logan received 10% of the pay-per-view income which amounted to at least $5 million. Also, he received a $250,000 flat fee for the fight. Add those to earnings from endorsement and it would amount to about $10 million, claims the YouTuber.
For many people, the amount is massive for someone who has only attained the bare minimum of what is required to be a professional boxer. However, it seems to be insignificant compared to the $65 million Mayweather pocketed from the bout.
2. His Net Worth Is Currently Estimated at $25 Million
Based on the foregoing, it is clear that Logan Paul has multiple sources of income. His earnings from his exploits as a content creator have definitely been the most stable source of the wealth he has accumulated. As of August 2021, he has three monetized channels on YouTube: Logan Paul, TheOfficialLoganPaul, and Impaulsive, which have respectively accumulated 23.2 million, 5.12 million, and 3.29 million subscribers.
In all, his videos have garnered roughly about 7 billion views. This translates to millions of dollars in YouTube earnings. Moreso, his popularity means he earns a reasonable sum from his merch and endorsement deals. That’s not all, Logan Paul has as well made good money from acting, singing, and boxing. Given all of these, it is not difficult to see how he made his $25 million fortune.
1. Logan Intends To Run for President and Claims He’s Brain Damaged
In an episode of his Impaulsive podcast, the YouTuber disclosed that he would be vying to become the president of his country sometime in the future. Logan believes he would be a good president and has set 2032 as the first year he would run for the office. According to him, it is something he would do before he dies; when he has acquired “lots of intelligence and wisdom”.
Logan played football as a linebacker in high school. He claims he sustained a brain injury through this which makes it difficult for him to empathize with people. The YouTuber also claims that he is red-green colorblind.
