Yousef Erakat is more famous under the name of his vlog FouseyTUBE. When he started his YouTube channel in 2011, he got on very early to what became a gold mine for most popular pranksters and vloggers. He remained on the top of his game and with millions of fans, he is collecting the fruits of his labor now. Yousef Erakat’s net worth is estimated to be 4.2 million dollars as of 2020 with majority of his income originating from online advertisement. Check out also wealth of Mo Vlogs, Doug Demuro, and Roman Atwood.
Yousef was born January 22, 1990 in Fremont, California into the family of religious Palestinian immigrants. He struggled with both, his family’s and anti-Muslims’ prejudices but all that struggle just made him stronger. Always fond of performing arts, Erakat holds a college degree in theatre from San Jose State University.
Launching his first YouTube channel in 2011 proved to be a great decision. His great talent paired with perfect timing (video platform was still in it’s infancy) lead to a huge success and Yousef became extremely popular. To this day, his main channel amassed 10.4 million subscribers. He also later started second channel titled DOSEofFOUSEY.
Some of his most famous videos on FouseyTUBE are Mortal Combat Elevator Prank with 127 millions views and Yoga Pants Pranks with 52 million views. Many fans like to return to his funny sketches which further increases his income.
Family and girlfriend
Erakat’s parents are apparently very religious and they do not appear on his videos. Yousef has a one older sister named Noura who is very accomplished as a teacher and human rights activist. As a younger kid, Yousef was always the clown of the family and he transformed his passion for making people laugh into a great vocation.
But let’s have a closer look at Erakat’s dating history. His first publicly known girlfriend was Instagram star Alycia Tyre known also under her account name sahlt_. This voluptuous girl is proud of her body and frequently poses in her underwear. She also got silicone breast implants. Alycia and Yousef started dating in 2016 but their relationship did not last.
But charismatic prankster did not stay single for long. He started dating his current girlfriend in 2018. Her name is Simmi Singh and she is also a YouTuber. She didn’t reach Yousef’s popularity yet but she already gained almost a million subscribers! This power couple is still dating in 2020. Simmi is very beautiful and ethnicity is Punjabi (India). She does appear in many Yousef’s videos. Yet, she repeatedly warn him that if he ever attempts to rank her, the two of them will be done.

Sources of income, salary
Between his two channels, Yousef Erakat is making a sizable income from online ads and that would be more than enough for a nice net worth. But same as many other established vloggers, Erakat also tried to conquer traditional media. He appeared in several movies, including Twin Blocked and Boo! A Madea Halloween.
As he doesn’t work a regular job, Yousef does not have a normal salary. But we are sure, he will manage without it. The number of his subscribers keeps rising steadily. The only hiccup happened in 2018, when he stopped his own posts and announced that he will be publishing content from other, less famous entertainers. As a result, he lost about 60 thousand fans in relatively short period of time. But he is back on the track in 2020 and we can’t wait for more of his videos.
