The technology category is one of the most practical niches for internet users. And Arun Maini, popularly known online as Mrwhosetheboss, is one of the top content providers in this department. He is even considered the biggest tech YouTuber in the UK. As of 2022. Mrwhosetheboss has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Arun Maini is from Nottingham, England, and he was born on October 24, 1995. His parents, Dinesh and Malti, are both cosmetic clinic directors. He has a younger brother named Karan and a sister named Aanavee. Their family is of Indian origin.
He received excellent grades in school and enjoyed playing chess, a hobby he continued to pursue as an adult. However, he was a very shy kid and was often picked on.
When he got his first phone at 14 years old, he was amazed by what technology could do. The young man went to the University of Warwick after graduating from Nottingham High School in 2014. In college, he studied economics and earned his bachelor’s degree in 2017.
Mrwhosetheboss started uploading videos on YouTube shortly after he received his first smartphone in 2011. He originally wanted his channel to be solely for phone reviews.
He did an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers, a London-based accounting company, during university. Around this time, he was still actively making content for his growing audience online.
After finishing his internship, Arun was offered an entry-level position with a salary of around $46,000. He declined the offer, preferring to focus on his YouTube channel.
Maini ultimately started making videos outside of phone reviews. As the channel’s popularity grew, he broadened his video scope to include laptops, automobiles, and even vacuum cleaners.
He’s also released videos in which he expresses his thoughts and feelings on issues involving internet companies’ media propaganda and the rise of the metaverse. His most popular videos are titled “Turn your Smartphone into a 3D Hologram” and “How this wallpaper kills your phone.”
However, his biggest year yet was in 2021. He signed a deal with the talent management company Night Media. He also won in the technology category in the 2021 Streamy Awards. The Mrwhosetheboss channel currently has 10.6 million subscribers.
Net Worth and Earnings
It is estimated that Arun Maini makes up to $1.8 million every year through his YouTube channel’s ad revenue. However, social media stars rarely depend on a single source of income. Sponsorship deals, affiliate earnings, and sales revenue are common, especially for tech influencers.
Furthermore, YouTube isn’t his only platform to promote his ventures. He has 1.4 million followers on Instagram. Some of his other income streams can likely equal his YouTube earnings. Because of this, his net worth is reported to be around $4 million.
Mrwhosetheboss is a very private man but he did share a picture of girlfriend on Instagram. One fan hilariously replied in the comments asking, “when’s the review dropping?”. Also, it’s rumored that he resides in a house in his home city, Nottingham, England.
