Logan Paul, a YouTuber who is probably best known for publishing footage of the corpse of a Japanese suicide victim on his channel, is also an extremely wealthy person. Fox Business Network invited him to appear on The Claman Countdown on Monday, presumably to discuss his fortune ($14.5 million in 2018 alone—good job, world!) and how he accumulated it. Instead, a jittery Paul talked about how fast he can run, his unsustainable spending habits, and his (apparently) non-contagious pink eye.
“I’m betting $100,000 that I’m the fastest man on the planet,” Paul says, before admitting that he currently spends more money than he brings in. So his financial manager must be stoked.
Twitter user and Media Matters campaign director Jordan Uhl did us the favor of editing the interview down to its most essential parts.

Paul, who first rose to fame as a Vine star, currently has 19 million YouTube subscribers, 16 million Instagram followers, and 4.9 million Twitter followers. He let them know he was pretty pleased with his appearance.
