Real name Brain Davis, True Geordie is a British YouTuber with an estimated net worth of £500,000. Hailing from the North of England, he is a passionate Newcastle United supporter. Davis first came into the spotlight after an infamous rant about Nile Ranger went viral in 2013. True Geordie ripped into Ranger describing him as useless and didn’t have enough talent to play for the first team.
It turns out he was right as Rangers career has gone downhill since leaving Tyneside. It’s amazing to see how far he has come since recording rant videos on an iPhone to building one of the most successful podcasts on YouTube.
Before making YouTube his full-time career, he worked as a deep sea diving instructor but quit to focus his attention on creating videos. The start was tough, he struggled financially for months because he had no sponsors at the time. Luckily, he survived through difficult times and secured a lucrative brand deal with Coral, a well-known sports betting company in the UK.
The 36-year-old has a loyal following due to his no nonsense approach, generating well over 100,000 views per video. Brian’s not the type of person to hold back and isn’t afraid to be brutally honest! Sometimes he goes too far but in life, if you never go too far you’ll never go far enough! Typically his audience are guys aged from 16 to 40 years old that listen in their spare time or during their boring office job.
Brian can’t take all the credit for the success of his channel, co-host Laurence McKenna played a key role as his sidekick. Without Laurence the podcast wouldn’t have taken off, at times Laurence was annoying, constantly interrupting guests but fans loved his sense of humour.
How much does he make?
Brian makes an estimated £250,000 per year from running a popular podcast and YouTube channel. Brian’s YouTube channel has 1.97 million subscribers and the Kick Off channel has moved to Twitch. The Kick Off was expensive to run and moving to Twitch allows him to make a lot more money. He’s an excellent interviewer and has got some big names onto his podcast such as Logan Paul, Tyson Fury and Alan Shearer.
He has built up a massive following and makes money through brand deals with the likes of PokerStars and GymShark. After making inappropriate comments about Muslims both brands dropped him. Sadly, McKenna is longer involved with the Kick Off and Brian’s had to find a new cast.
Does True Geordie have a wife or girlfriend?
True Geordie is married to Holly Davies and they have a kid together. In earlier videos, he mentioned his wife frequently and used to wear a wedding ring. When True Geordie was involved in a sexting scandal, fans were surprised to find out he had a wife! Brian likes to keep his family life private and his privacy should be respected.
