Kai Cenat Net Worth & Girlfriend

What is Kai Cenat’s net worth? Is Kai Cenat dating anyone now?


Kai Cenat is a sometimes Twitcher—more about that later—and a YouTuber who has built up a massive following with ridiculous videos where he pranks famous people and turns his home into a petting zoo.

He is also a member of the AMP creator collective, with JustFanum, ImDavisss, Duke Dennis, Agent 00, and Chrisnxtdoor.

His crazy antics have paid off so far—the young New Yorker has racked up over 5 million YouTube subscribers and over 10 million Twitch fans.

Kai Cenat has also earned an impressive following on Instagram, thanks to his short meme-inspired comedy skits.

But what else do we know about Kai Cenat?

Here’s what we found out.

The Origin Story

He was born on December 16, 2001, in New York, as Kai Cenat III.

Kai is a middle child—the New York native has a twin sister, an older brother, a younger sister, and a younger brother.

He comes from a tight knit family, and often features his family on his social media channels. Kai is also close to his mom, and she’s appeared in a few videos on YouTube.

Kai received a good education—something that was important to his mom and dad, regardless of what happened with his career as an influencer.

He attended Frederick Douglass VII Academy High School  in Brooklyn New York. After his high school graduation, Kai headed upstate.

In Morrisville, he enrolled at the State University of New York in Morrisville.

A Lesson In Motivation

Kai Cenat caught mainstream attention for his pranks and comedy content.

As a relative newcomer to the influencer world, Kai pays attention to current trends, and also looks at what’s happening around him for inspiration for his videos.

His main goal is to build a larger audience, and he has been open about how difficult it was for him to stay motivated as a content creator when he wasn’t getting the engagement—or subscriber count—he wanted.

He often thought of giving up on social media and getting a “real job” because he wasn’t making enough progress.

Fortunately, the fame hungry young Cenat stuck with it—and he encourages other wannabe internet celebrities to do the same.

On The Road To Somewhere

Kai created his Instagram account as a 16 year old kid—but it would be a few years before his content got any real traction.

At first, he was sharing interesting, funny skits on his profile.

He gradually built his follower count, and eventually ventured into YouTube in 2018—thanks, in part, to the encouragement of his young fans.

As these YouTube videos picked up a reasonable view count, he also expanded to upload live streams of him playing video games on Twitch.

Now that he is building a brand across some of the biggest social media and streaming platforms in the world—YouTube, Instagram, and Twitch—he has set his sights on dominating TikTok, too.

He reached his first million subscribers on YouTube in August of 2021, and showed off his new YouTube gold play button not long after.

The gold play button is an award given out by YouTube when a creator hits their first million subscribers.

The Power of The Collaboration

Kai Cenat has become pretty savvy at learning what his viewers and fans want.

And apparently, what they want is videos like “I Became A Professional Cuddler & Made $700”.

That video, in which Cenat posed as a professional cuddler to make quick cash, had reached more than 4 million views, and is one of Cenat’s most popular videos to date.

He has also learned the power of a good collaboration.

In October of 2021, he uploaded the first of his collaborations with Teanna Trump.

First came “I Told Teanna Trump To Come To The Backseat” where Kai and Teanna linked up and flirted for several minutes straight—much to the joy of his followers.

The video earned him almost 4 million views in less than a year.

A few days later, and fresh off the high of his viral Teanna hit—and an interview on her channel—Kai uploaded “Teanna Came To My Room”.

While the video didn’t get the same traction as its predecessor, it still gained more than 2.5 million views, and it got his fans talking.

Many speculated about the sexual chemistry between the 20 year old gamer and Teanna Trump. Trump—no relation to The Apprentice reality show host and one-time president Donald Trump—is an American adult entertainment actress.

“I’m Done With This”

On March 2, 2022, Kai was suspended from Twitch for 30 days after being banned for the third time.

The suspension comes after 2 previous bans, and is his third in just nine months.

Kai posted a screenshot of the suspension notice alongside the caption “I’m done with this.”
