But who is the web’s newest celeb and how did he become a household name among streaming fans? Here’s everything we know.

Who is Kai Cenat?

Born in New York in December 2001 to a Haitian father and Trinidadian mother, Kai began posting on social media during his school days.

His dream was to be a comedian or a professional dancer.

He posted short comedy skits on Facebook and Instagram, much to the amusement of his classmates at Frederick Douglass High School, where he graduated in 2019.

He briefly attended Morrisville State College, but dropped out to focus on content creation.

At some point, he became known as Kai Cenat III, adding the “III” on account of being his mother’s third child, rather than the more traditional reason of being the third child named Kai in the Cenat family.

He has an older brother, twin sister and younger brother.

He is in a relationship with Instagram model Skylar Marie.

How did Kai Cenat become famous on YouTube?

Kai posted his first YouTube video in 2018, with the title “MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO!! (Introduction)”.

He was discovered by fellow content creator Fanum and joined the streaming group Any Means Possible (AMP), in 2020.

The group is known for prank and challenge videos, as well as gaming streams.

Kai lives alongside the other members of the group in their content house in Atlanta, Georgia.

Just two years after joining the group, he won Streamer of the Year and was nominated for Breakout Streamer of the Year at the Streamy Awards.

In October, he dethroned xQc as the most subscribed streamer on Twitch, with more than 80,000 (although he is not the most followed).

He was also briefly on the Discord call in which the controversial argument between xQc and Andrew Tate broke out.

What is Kai Cenat’s net worth?

Being Twitch’s most subscribed streamer certainly comes with its rewards.

Kai is estimated to be worth $2million.

He is also believed to earn between $66,995 and $136,133 per month from paid subscriptions, as well as $500,000 in YouTube ad revenue.
