Bajan Canadian Net Worth – $3 million
What is Bajan Canadian’s net worth?
Bajan Canadian was once one of the biggest gamers on YouTube.
He was an active member of collab squad Team Crafted, and a beloved live streamer who gained popularity in the Minecraft space.
The Barbadian-Canadian social media star had impeccable Minecraft skills and was one of only a handful of YouTube influencers who featured in the viral YouTuber Intro Challenge.
At the peak of his fame, he was nearing 6 million subscribers on the giant video streaming platform.
Then he ghosted.
Fans didn’t know what had happened.
His followers wanted to know if he was coming back.
Nobody was unsubscribing.
That was 2019, and in 2021, we finally have answers about the gamer who was so beloved he maintained 5.7 million subscribers despite a two-year absence.
Here’s what we know.
The Origin Story
Mitchell Donnell-Ralph Hughes was born on March 3, 1994, in Montreal, Canada.
He’s got one brother—Connor—and two sisters, whose names are Kyleigh and Marley.
Their parents packed the family of six up and headed to Barbados, before relocating to the US in 2004.
When Mitch graduated from high school in 2011, he was already an avid gamer with a YouTube account.
He also created a second channel with his girlfriend, Jessica, but the pair only ever uploaded three videos to that channel.
All of the videos are based in the Minecraft world.
Climbing The YouTube Ladder
Bajan Canadian launched his YouTube channel in 2010, and almost from the jump-off, he was carving out a niche for himself with his open dialogue and quirky sense of humor.
He gamed regularly with his close gamer buddies, including JeromeASF—real name Jerome Aceti.
Mitch and Jerome met in the fourth grade, and build a friendship before Mitch’s family headed back to Montreal when he was 13.
Bajan Canadian built a rapport with his growing fanbase through gameplay.
He often talked about pop culture, video games, stuff he’d seen on TV and the internet, and hip hop music.
To shake things up a little, Mitch also played Roller Coaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, and Pokemon.
In 2008, Mitch signed on with the AwesomeSauceFilms channel.
The brainchild of JeromeASF, it was a general gaming channel with series including Clip of the Day and Master Quest.
At one point, the AwesomeSauceFilms crew created a 13-hour Master Quest compilation.
They also played Call of Duty on the regular.
The AwesomeSauceFilms channel hit pause in December 2012, so the guys could focus on Minecraft—a game that was gaining momentum in gaming circles.
Most of Mitch’s videos centered around competitive Minecraft “minigames”—like Battledome, Parkour Speed Runs, Adventure Maps, and Survival games.
In 2015, fans were calling for a revival of ASF—but Mitch and Jerome weren’t feeling it.
By that stage, the pair had experienced huge success on their own channels.
Zak and Mat—both former members of the channel—uploaded a video to the Awesome Sauce channel, in which they played Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The video was deleted a few days later.
In 2013, Mitch joined Team Crafted alongside Jerome and SkyDoesMinecraft.
One of the original iterations of a collaboration/content creation squad, the team was formed to help them create more consistent content and provide the guys with more inspiration.
Bajan Canadian was the most subscribed member of Team Crafted, but some of the inner workings started to fall apart in the group.
Sky and his fiancee broke up, core member Kermit left, and Mitch voted to have Seto booted from the squad.
His vote held, and Seto was out.
The Team Crafted crew attempted a hail Mary save to keep the group afloat.
Seto had other plans and released a video explaining his side of the Team Crafted experience after months of staying quiet.
The video didn’t do Team Crafted any favors, and all its members started losing subscribers and views.
Not long after, Team Crafted lost another four members—all in 24 hours.

A Disappearing Act
In 2019, Bajan Canadian suddenly dropped off the radar.
He stopped uploading videos, became inactive on social media, and appeared to have dropped off the internet altogether.
His fan base was confused—especially when Mitch suddenly unlisted almost all his old videos.
Videos which, in his heyday, had amassed millions of views.
There were rumors that his absence stemmed from a problem he had with former friend Sky.
Others speculated that he had made enough money and just wanted to live his life.
More still said he’d had a bad breakup with Jess, and couldn’t face social media anymore.
Whatever the issue—and it definitely wasn’t the latter—Bajan Canadian has been showing signs of life on social media.
In April 2021, he tweeted that “life’s good” and thanked his fans for thinking of him.
Then in July, he was asking if anyone would be interested in editing some videos, and how to go about doing it.
Fans are all a-buzz wondering if the former golden boy of Minecraft has lots of content ready for them.
