The Doc says he earns millions and millions of dollars. He probably spent $500,000 on Baby Disrespect’s birthday alone and signs million-dollar deal contracts. EVERY. DAY. I initially meant this intro as a joke, but the more time I spent researching, the more I realized he might be right. Let’s take a closer look at Dr Disrespect’s net worth.

Dr Disrespect Net Worth: How We Estimated it
It’s impossible to get an exact reading on Dr Disrespect’s net worth, especially since many of his sponsorship details are private. Most of the other articles we’ve found online are severely lacking in information and we wanted to go into more details. We split up the article into three major sections:
- Twitch Revenue Sources – Twitch is undoubtedly The Doc’s biggest revenue source. We made accurate estimations based on his streams and metrics in 2019, taking into account his subscribers, donations, ad revenue, game sponsorships, and special streams. We also performed a rough estimation for his previous year of streaming, based on his metrics. (from 2015 to 2018).
- Other Revenue Sources – This includes YouTube, non-gaming sponsorships, his Merch store, and sources that are generally harder to estimate. If a revenue source is too difficult to calculate or significantly lower than the others, we simply didn’t factor it in.
- The Doc’s expenses.
How Much Does Dr Disrespect earn every month?
At the time of writing, DrDisrespect earns between $98,000 and $300,000 every month from Twitch alone. He also earns around $10,000-$20,000 from other sources, such as YouTube, sponsorships, and his own products.
Dr Disrespect Net Worth Breakdown: Twitch Income
There are four major ways for streamers to earn money on Twitch:
- Subscribers: viewers can support a streamer by subscribing to a channel. There are three subscription tiers ($4.99, $9.99, $24.99), with the first tier being the most popular. Premium Twitch Partners earn at least 70% for each subscription. The other 30% go to Twitch.
- Ads: streamers can run ads on their stream at any point and earn a fixed sum for every 1,000 unique ad views.
- Bits: viewers can also support a streamer by donating through the Twitch Platform using bits. Although not as popular as donating, there is still some money to be had from cheering.
Dr Disrespect Net Worth from Subs: 850,000-910,000/year
At the moment, DrDisrespect averages about 21,000 viewers per month. In a good month he gets around 35,000 viewers. The Doc is the second largest streamer in terms of subscriber count, totaling around 28,000 subscribers every month.
Viewers can subscribe to a Twitch channel to support the streamer. Twitch takes a 50% cut from a basic sub ($4.99), but premium partners receive a better cut, which is about 30% of the sub’s value. This means that a streamer like Dr Disrespect will get around $3.50 per basic subscriber. We aren’t going to count the Tier 2 and Tier 3 subs, which are $9.99 and $24.99, because they are generally few compared to the basic subscribes.
Here’s DrDisrespect’s sub count for the last two years, according to TwitchTracker:
I also double checked the subcount with TwitchStats. Here is the number of subscribers for November 2019:
Here’s his subcount for 2019 according to TwitchStats:
- November 2019 – 10,768 subscribers with
- October 2019 – 32,380 subscribers with 17.2K average viewers
- September 2019 – 12,364 subscribers with 30K average viewers
- August 2019 – 32,646 subscribers with 32K average viewers (7K gifted subs)
- July 2019 – 32,098 subscribers with 18.4K average viewers
- June 2019 – 7,433 subscribers with 24.6K average viewers
- May 2019 – 22,850 subscribers with 36.3K average viewers
- April 2019 – 21,817 subscribers with 24.8K average viewers
- March 2019 – 28,077 subscribers with 36.3K average viewers
- February 2019 – 46,661 subscribers with 22.2K average viewers (the month he got back into streaming after the incident with his wife)
- January 2019 – 27,397 subscribers, despite the fact that he didn’t stream at all this month.
I also cross-referenced the TwitchStats numbers with TwitchTracker (screenshot above) and the numbers are kind of similar. I rounded all of these numbers up to 20,000 subscribers over the course of 12 months. The exception here is February 2019, the month when The Two-Time returned to stream and got a whopping 45,000 subscribers. In conclusion, from subscriptions alone, DrDisrespect earns around $70,000/month and $910,000/year in 2019 (February was factored in accordingly).
From September 2016 until December 2019, DrDisrespect has earned a mind-blowing $2,75 million from subscribers alone.
Dr Disrespect Net Worth & Income from Donations: Minimum $72,000 per year
- The Doc’s Return Stream in February, 2019:
We need to take a moment to discuss the Doc’s return to streaming for several reasons. First of all, he BROKE Twitch, and received the highest number of concurrent viewers for any Twitch Stream in history: 360,000. He also had 2.2 million unique viewers. To give you some perspective, running one pre-roll ad for these viewers ONCE brought $7,749 to the Doc’s pockets. Of course, The Doc plays multiple ads during his streams, so I would reckon he made over $15,000… only from ads.
He also received insane support through donations, with multiple $50, $100, $500 donations, and an eye-popping $5,000 donation. I would guesstimate that he earned a MINIMUM of $15,000 from donations in that single stream.
Total Revenue: around $30,000 (not counting subs)
- Regular Streams – Between $144,000 and $400,000 per year
At the time of writing (December 10, 2019), Dr Disrespect has already earned a minimum of $2,000 from donations, within 5 streams. Most of his viewers send $5-10, so a correct estimation would be around $4,000 from donations in the last 10 days. Check the dop donators below. It’s safe to assume that, by the end of the month, we will have minimum $12,000. And that’s not counting the Christmas period, which will bring an influx in donos.
The Doc probably averages around $500-$1,000 from donations per stream, so with 20 streams a month, he likely makes around $10,000-$20,000 per month from donations.
Let’s add the bits revenue as well (about $500 per month). In total, the Doc makes around $72,000 per year from donations.
Dr Disrespect Net Worth & Income from Twitch Ads: $184,000 per year
According to TwitchStats, Dr Disrespect has an average viewership of 24,000.
Although there are many people who use ad blockers, the platforms have gotten smarter. Most video ads can now avoid ad blockers. DrDisrespect is here to make money, so he runs multiple ads during his streams. I think he runs around 2 ads per hour. With an average stream length of five to six hours, that means 10 ads delivered to a concurrent viewership of 20,000 per stream.
According to these estimations, the Two-time makes around $770 per stream, $15,400 per month, and $184,000 per year from ads.
Twitch Sponsorships – Estimated Income: $500,000 – $3,000,000 per year
Here’s the most difficult part to calculate, especially since the only way to find out how much a streamer was paid for a sponsorship is directly from him. There are two types of sponsorships: those that happen on Twitch, and are generally game sponsorships where the streamer is paid to play a certain game, and permanent sponsorships with various brands. A few estimates according to DisguisedToast for sponsored:
- Stream – $0.01 to $1 per viewer, per hour,
- YouTube video – $5,000 per video with a 30 second ad,
- Social media post – generally as a package deal,
- Event appearance – $5,000 to $10,000
This year, DrDisrespect has been sponsored to play several games, including, Apex Legends. Ninja reportedly received $1 million to play this game, so I assume The Doc received a similar or smaller sum, based on his following. Let’s say $500,000 for good measure.
Another report says that streamers are getting paid between $25,000 and $50,000 an hour to showcase a new game. The Doc was also paid to play Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and recent Call of Duty releases. Ironic, considering he worked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Undoubtedly the most exciting development came only a few days ago, when the Doc announced his TV development deal with the creators of Walking Dead, Skybound. This is the first deal of its kind, and an incredible opportunity for legitimizing the role of streamers in current media. Again, it’s hard to pin the exact contact value, but I would reckon it exceeds $1million.
- [ENDED] Gillete: After a long, unofficial collaboration, DrDisrespect partnered publicly with Gillette in June, 2018. The partnership eventually ended, he explains in a 2018 clip.
- [ENDED] ASUS: The Doc was also sponsored by ASUS until July, 2019. He mentioned on stream that the partnership had come to a close, with “no bad blood” between them.
- [ACTIVE] Gfuel: Since Gfuel is using the Doc’s image on their site and social media, it’s safe to assume he is also getting a fixed sum, along with his commissions from related product sales.
- [ACTIVE] TurtleBeach: DrDisrespect officially announced his partnership with Turtle Beach in June, 2017. Here’s the official commercial with the Doc.
- [ACTIVE] COD Partner
- [ENDED] Other Game Sponsorships
He is also affiliated with brands such as ScufGaming, from which he receives a commission for every purchase made.
DrDisrespect also collaborates with Boom.TV to take game streaming to the next level. Together, they have organized PUBG tournaments with huge prize pools ($20,000). Again, Dr Disrespect probably earns a minimum $50,000 early from the deal.
Dr Disrespect Net Worth Breakdown: Other Sources
YouTube – Estimated Earnings $25,000 to $200,000 (in 2019)
At the time of writing, Dr Disrespect has 1,33 million YouTube subscribers and a total if 91,215,117 channel views. Ad revenue between YouTube and Dr Disrespect is shared at a 55-45 ratio. Rates are volatile and can vary from 50 cents to $3 per 1000 ad impressions, based on device type, demographics, etc.
Assuming none of the Doc’s videos have been demonetized, and at a standard rate of $0.50 per 1000 ad impressions, I estimated TOTAL income for his to be minimum $25,080 after YouTube’s cute. For an average rate of $4 per 1000 ad impressions it should be around $200,600. Compared to sub revenue this looks like pocket change. IcePoseidon actually shares that he made $430 with a 1 million views video, so YouTube income isn’t great always amazing.
SocialBlade shows us an average of 6.5 million monthly views for his channel per month. That means between $1,600 and $26,200 monthly earnings and $19,600 and $314,400 yearly earnings for his YouTube channel in 2019, so I was close. Let’s stick to a moderate estimation.
Let’s add all of this up for 2019:
- $900,000 per year from subscriptions
- $72,000 per year from donations
- $184,000 per year from Ad revenue
- $500,000-$3,000,000 per year from sponsorships
- $25,000-$200,000 per year from YouTube
- $30,000 from the February Stream
Total Lifetime Earnings:
- $2.75m from subscriptions
- $210,000 from donations
- $460,000 from Ad revenue
- $1-$5m from sponsorships
- $25,000-$300,000 from YouTube
- $150,000 from other collaborations
Please note that I didn’t take into account his earnings from bits (at least $500/month) and Tier 2 & Tier 3 subscriptions.
ChampionsClub.gg – Estimated Earnings N/A (in 2019)
A few weeks ago (end of November, 2019), the Two-time announced his merch store, Champions Club, and a brand new Winter collection. Hoodies sell for $60-$70, while Tshirts and accessories are around $25.
Unconfirmed Deal with Twitch
Dr Disrespect suggested that he was paid by Twitch to stay on the platform. This may have been just one of his jokes, but last week Twitch also announced that it was signing exclusive contracts with three of its biggest streamers: LIRIK, TimTheTatman, and DrLupo. Maybe Dr Disrespect signed too, but again, it’s impossible to know for how much, so we didn’t include the info in our math.
Dr Disrespect’s Expenses
The Doc probably spends a little more than your average streamer. He has a family to care for and most probably bought a house that is worth more than $500,000 to also accommodate his “command center.” We believe most of his streaming equipment was sponsored.
He also rents (or buys?) expensive cars that he uses at game conferences. Either way, his expenses are most likely insignificant compared to his overall revenue.
