Everyone’s journey is different, and for Trisha Paytas, hers is one full of ups and downs, but at least, in the end, she can look back and say she has made it. Being an actress, musician and YouTuber have had a significant impact on her finances, and Trisha Paytas net worth currently stands at $4 million. So how did she get here? Take a look, from the beginning.
Trisha does not visit her homeland often saying it is a reminder of her childhood which was not all bliss. When she was three years old, her parents divorced causing her mother and Trisha to move to Rockford Illinois. As a teenager, she went to live with her father in California but returned to her mother after one year. On finishing high school, she left home again and moved to Los Angeles hoping to launch her acting career. Unfortunately, she did not get any major roles causing her to think of other ways to make a living. Consequently, Trisha became a stripper, professional lingerie model and an extra.
Acting career kicks off
In 2006, Trisha became a correspondent to Greg Behrendt on “The Greg Behrendt Show” which was her first television appearance. Trisha was in the entire 13-episode series, but after its first season, the show was canceled. Fortunately, in 2007, Trisha continued with her acting career through the role of Ms. Limelight on “Who Wants to be a Superhero?” She was on the show for four episodes but got eliminated on the third episode, from the competitive part.
Trisha made guest appearances from 2008 to 2012 in many TV shows such as “Modern Family,” “The Price is Right” and “Ellen Degeneres Show” where she appeared as a speed talker. The Daily Mail referred to her as the world’s fastest talker by speaking 710 words in 54 seconds. In 2010, Trisha, who admits to being a tanning addict, appeared on “My Strange Addiction” in one episode. In 2011, Trisha made an appearance in the show” The Million Matchmaker” but she was not accepted.
In 2012, Trisha acted alongside Jennifer Aniston in “Davidson’s wife” which she declared was a dream come true to be with a celebrity. In 2013, Trisha appeared on “Dr. Phil” as someone referred to as a fat slut due to how she dresses. In the show, she connected with many women and girls as she said no one should be hated because of how they look or dress.
Launching her YouTube channels
Being jobless and still determined to make it in the entertainment industry, Trisha began her YouTube channel,”Blndsundoll4mj” in 2007. The channel was a dedication to the movie director, Quentin Tarantino who was Trisha’s idol. Later, Trisha gained more confidence to show herself on TV; therefore she switched the YouTube channel to be posting videos mainly of fashion and beauty. She also includes relationship advice for the fans on the channel which has so far garnered more than 3 million followers.
In 2014 Trisha started a vlog channel, “TishasLife” which was later called “Tisha’s Life” on which she posts videos about her personal life, food challenges, and comedy skits. By 2017, the channel had over 2 million views and currently has over one billion views. Her Youtube Channel rakes in $1,600 daily which translates to about $590,000 per year. The amount is from the traffic that the site generates as well as the adverts which run on the posted videos. Further, her vlogging channel has more than 1 million subscribers and every day she earns $340 from it.
Trish also tried her hand in singing in 2014 and so far has released 7 Eps. She did a cover of “Santa Baby,” a holiday classic and released a new music video, “A Little Less Conversation” in 2015. Before making her songs, she had been featured in other artists’ videos. In 2007, she played a small role in Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry on Their own” while in 2009, Eminem hired her to act as Jessica Simpson in his video for the song “We Made You.” Trisha also appeared in a Guns and Roses video, playing a mobster’s girlfriend and in “Sleepless in Silverlake” by Les Savy Fav as Marilyn Monroe.
Although Trisha Paytas has a certification as a massage therapist, she does not need to be one; her YouTube channels are enough to pay her bills. Besides she is an entrepreneur since she released her fragrance, Trish in 2013 and skincare product range, Feel Like Trish in 2014.
