Social media personality Austin McBroom is a YouTuber, entrepreneur and an athlete. He was sprung into the spotlight with the growth of his family’s YouTube channel, The ACE Family. More recently, he has been in the news because of his Social Gloves boxing event, which flopped due to poor pay-per-view buys. As of 2022, Austin McBroom has an estimated net worth of $3 million.
Austin was born on May 20, 1992. His parents, Michole and Allen McBroom, raised him in North Hollywood, California. He grew up with a little brother named Landon.
He was a child who was good academically and talented in the sports arena. Growing up, he enjoyed playing football, baseball, and basketball. But when he went to Campbell Hall School, he was more successful playing basketball.
Even so, he was still part of the baseball and football teams. In college, the student-athlete went to three different colleges: Central Michigan University, Eastern Washington University, and Saint Louis University. Here he studied communications which seems to have served him well!
After ending his senior year in high school as a guard with an average of 25.1 points per game, he was listed on the All-CIF Division 3AA first team. He was a top prospect for many teams in the NCAA.
The California kid played for the Portland State Vikings championship team alongside Jrue Holiday of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks. Apart from playing hoops, he tried competing in football again with the Central Michigan Chippewas.
He later became a part of the Mid-American Conference All-Freshman team. However, he left the Chippewas after one year to join the Saint Louis Billiken and later the Eastern Washington Eagles.
McBroom had a family while pursuing sports and in 2016, they decided to make a YouTube channel to make vlogs about their daily activities. The channel has around 18.9 million subscribers and continues to reach new highs.
As the channel grew in popularity, Austin started a company, Simply Greatness Productions LLC. With it, the athlete created a boxing event that pitted YouTubers against TikTokers in 2020. It was called Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms.
It attracted several big-time investors as the company predicted 2.2 million in pay-per-view buys. Unfortunately, the event only got 136,000. This consequently upset many of their partners and the marketing firm LiveXLive alone is seeking $100 million in damages.
Net Worth and Earnings
According to financechill.com, The Ace Family earns $6.4 million per year through YouTube, merch sales and brand sponsorships. In 2020, the Ace Family was worth an estimated $22 million based on reports from distractify.com.
Furthermore, the sportsman isn’t afraid to get in the ring himself. His first boxing fight was a win against influencer Bryce Hall, and his next fight is against fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib on July 30, 2022. These ventures have given him a fortune worth $3 million.
Austin McBroom married social media influencer Catherine Paiz in a secret marriage in 2017. They have three children together named Elle, Alaïa, and Steel. The McBroom family currently rent a $10.6 million mansion in Woodland Hills, California, costing them $50,000 per month! Originally they bought a mega mansion for $10.1 million in 2019 but the property was foreclosed in early 2021.
