With 133 million TikToker followers, 17-year-old Fairfield County resident Charli D'Amelio, of Norwalk, who started posting to TikTok in 2019 -- has the video-sharing app's largest following, Forbes says. Last year, she brought in $17.5 million.
The median pay for chief executives of S&P 500 companies in 2020 was $13.4 million, the WSJ reports. Darren Woods was the highest-earning CEO of 2020, bringing in $15.6 million that year.
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson made $14.7 million while Delta Air Lines' Ed Bastian brought in $13.1 million.
That leaves the teen TikToker at the top of the charts.
Most of D'Amelio's earnings come from advertising sponsorships on TikTok (one of her biggest being Dunkin' Donuts); her Hollister clothing line with her sister, Dixie; along with several other family TV shows on Hulu and Snapchat, Forbes says.
Dixie, Charli's older sister, is the second-highest earning TikToker of 2021, bringing in nearly $10 million with 57 million followers.
