Formerly known by his online alias “duncan33303,” Austin Evans is a tech YouTuber who reviews all kinds of devices. He also became famous for his regular uploads of his own PC builds. More recently, he became a co-host of a Formula One racing podcast called “The Backmarkers.” As of 2022, Austin Evans has a net worth of $5 million.
Austin is from New Jersey, United States and was born on August 22, 1992. He is a very private individual who hasn’t revealed a lot about his family or early years to the public.
However, he once revealed a childhood story that led him to become a content creator. He was a nerdy child who was much smaller than his peers. One of them, Mike, decided to pick on him one day.
They started teasing each other, and Mike chased him to the top of a jungle gym. Austin was pulled to the ground by Mike, and their teacher saw it. When Evans’ mom knew about the incident, she put her son on homeschooling.
The New Jersey kid had so much time on his hands, so he started writing stories about the things he loved, video games and technology. He planned to become an author after completing his studies.
But after his family had access to the internet, everything changed. Through social media, Austin had the opportunity to communicate his thoughts to many people around the world.
One of his friends started a blog, and he was hired to be a writer, writing different kinds of app reviews. Later on, his friend advised him to try producing video versions of his articles, and that is how he became a YouTuber.
As duncan33303, Austin Evans started his YouTube journey in 2009, narrating his app reviews. Then, he dove deeper into the tech niche by reviewing the latest gadgets and giving tips about them.
In early 2014, his YouTube career came to a pause when his entire house burned down. All of his video-making equipment was lost in the fire.
With the help of family, friends, and fellow creators, he slowly got back on his feet. He even started co-hosting The Backmarkers, an F1 podcast, with Myke Hurley. At the time of writing, his personal channel has amassed over 5.31 million subscribers.
Net Worth and Earnings
Evans is considered one of today’s leading tech YouTubers. He is in the same league as Unbox Therapy, Marques Brownlee, and Linus Tech Tips. He makes an estimated $2,400 per day, or $880,000 annually, from YouTube ad revenue.
Plus, he occasionally gets paid by sponsors. There’s also his income from his podcasting gig. Back in 2010, he also had an acting stint in the comedy-drama My Friend, Oscar. Overall, it is estimated that Austin Evans’ net worth is somewhere around $5 million.
Austin is a happily married man. His wife’s name is Karen Evans, who is also his long-time best friend. The couple exchanged their wedding vows in 2019. Now, they are living together in Los Angeles, California.
