'DWTS': What is Olivia Jade's net worth? Lori Loughlin's daughter earns a LOT from IG
Olivia Jade's social media accounts have over a million subscribers and followers and are monetized through commercial endorsements
Olivia Jade Giannulli is an American YouTuber who will be one of the celebrities to compete on Season 30 of 'Dancing with the Stars'.
While her time in high school, Olivia started a lifestyle channel on YouTube and right after, an Instagram account. Each account has over a million subscribers and followers, each monetized through commercial endorsements for Amazon, Sephora and a whole lot of other companies.
In September, Olivia was announced as one of the celebrities competing on Season 30 of 'Dancing with the Stars'. On the show, she will be partnered with Val Chmerkovskiy.
'Dancing with the Stars' is Olivia Jade's first big break, ever since it came to light that her parents were involved in the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges back in August, 2020. The couple was accused of paying about $500,000 in bribe to have both their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as rowing recruits, although Olivia had no interest in rowing whatsoever.
In lieu of the federal criminal complaint against her father, it is reported that Olivia was confused as to how to complete the USC application. For this, an employee of the alleged conspiracy's ringleader had to fill it out on her behalf in the end.
The University of Southern California scheduled a hearing in March 2019 to determine if Giannulli should be identified as a "disruptive individual", which could result in a lifetime ban from the university. Later that year, the USC Registrar confirmed that Olivia and her sister were no longer officially enrolled at the university. That being said, they added that it would not confirm whether the sisters were expelled or not, because of student privacy laws.
Olivia's brand scaled great heights but after a sabbatical on social media, she returned to the spotlight to essentially rebuild her name. She essentially made most of her money from social media platforms. Her lifestyle channel has about 1.9 million YouTube followers and her Instagram page has 1.3 million followers. Both these channels focus mainly on fashion and makeup. What's more, Olivia has several product endorsement deals and uses her social media accounts to promote brands such as SmileDirectClub and Amazon Prime Student.
