From private jets to cringey Instagram captions, Andrew Tate has the e-swindler influencer aesthetic down pat, even recently going so far as to call himself a trillionaire
If you’re a guy, chances are that you’ve already seen Tate’s cigar-chomping, sunglasses-clad head on YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, or wherever it is that you get your half-minute snackable content.
Tate, who often lays down his claim to fame in regards to his previous career in kickboxing is, to put it lightly, deeply problematic. From victim-blaming rape survivors to being involved in scams and human trafficking investigations, Tate regularly produces inflammatory content and is perhaps one of the most infuriating symptoms of Internet culture gone wrong in 2022.
That said, the guy does put up dozens of images with expensive cars, private jets, and the like — so are his claims of being a ‘hustler’ really true? The influencer has routinely dodged questions regarding his net worth with either unsubstantiated or grossly inflated answers — recently claiming that he’s a ‘trillionaire’.
So, what’s Tate’s actual fortune like, and what does he own? Let’s take a look:
In the podcast where he claims to be a trillionaire, Tate himself addressed some claims regarding his personal wealth.
“I was broke for a long time,” he said. “I made my first million when I was, say, 27 and then I had 100 million by the time I was 31, and then I became a trillionaire quite recently.”
Tate was born in the US but came to live in Britain at just four years old. He trained as a kickboxer in Luton, winning multiple world titles, eventually setting up a questionable adult webcam business in East Europe. He now lives in Romania and has since made more money investing in cryptocurrency and opening a chain of casinos with his brother Tristan.
Much of Tate’s following consists of an MLM scheme called ‘Hustler’s University’. Subscribing to his course would set you back $49.99 a month – and he claims to have over 100,000 subscribers to it. That works out at Andrew Tate earning five million dollars a month from Hustler’s University alone.
Despite these details, Tate’s net worth remains a far cry from his actual claims. According to Essentially Sports, Tate’s fortune is worth roughly $30 million.
Much of Tate’s brand involves posturing around ostentatious displays of wealth — the most common being his Bugatti Chiron. While there’s no proof of course that the vehicles are indeed his, here’s the total value of all the rides he claims to own on Instagram:
In total, Tate’s alleged garage seems to be worth just over $5.7 million.
