The 1st place was taken by 19-year-old Edison Ray Easterling from the state of Louisiana. She earned about $5 million with TikTok for 12 months that ended June 30, 2020. She has more than 54 million subscribers. Edison Ray releases its own line of cosmetics. After gaining fame in TikTok, she signed agreements with clothing manufacturer American Eagle and Internet service Spotify.

In 2nd and 3rd place are the sisters Charlie and Dixie D'amelio from Los Angeles (California). The first one earned $4 million during the reporting period, the second - $2.9 million. They were guests of a number of famous TV shows and presented the products of clothing manufacturer Hollister and other companies.

The income of the singer from the state of Pennsylvania Lauren Gray was $2.6 million. Due to her popularity in TikTok, she entered into agreements with the record company Virgin Records and other companies.

In 5th place is Josh Richards from Canada ($1.5 million). The 6th position was shared by Michael Lee and Spencer Knight, who live in the U.S. Both earned $1.2 million.

TikTok is owned by Chinese company ByteDance. US President Donald Trump has previously said that he will ban TikTok on the US territory if the US division of the social network or its entire network is not bought by an American company. The US Administration claims that TikTok's management is engaged in propaganda and transmits user data to the Chinese authorities.
