Younger siblings are often inspired by their older brothers and sisters and Jayden Croes is no exception. You’re sure to notice the resemblance between him and his older brother Gil.

One of his most popular videos on TikTok, “1 Year After Lockdown”, has reached more than 10 million views. He currently has 23 million TikTok followers.

Glamazon: Kristen Hancher — $13.5 Million

Hancher has often been confused for Kylie Jenner with her full lips and perfectly groomed eyebrows. What helps her stand out, however, is her colorfully highlighted hair. Now in her 20s, Hancher has nearly 25 million followers on TikTok, 5.6 million Instagram followers, and over 1 million YouTube subscribers.

Rae promotes her brand deal with American Eagle to her audience as well as her own merchandise. Aside from TikTok, she also runs a podcast and a beauty company called Item Beauty. The young entrepreneur clearly has a knack for both business and social media. It probably won’t be long before she’s making much more than $5 million!
