The gaming industry has grown to such a scale that women simply can’t stay away from it. Female streamers are now starting their channels and becoming stars. Some of them prefer to stream on YouTube, while others choose Twitch as the main venue for this activity. In November alone, Twitch recorded over 880,017,840 hours watched. And while 80% of Twitch users are still men, more and more women are eager to make real money online.
We’ve compiled a list of the top female streamers on Twitch, analyzing the number of their followers, the quality of streaming, income and more. Let’s go!
Kristen Michaela is a 27-year-old American streamer. The girl has been streaming games since 2013 when she created her YouTube channel. With over 1,000,000 followers, Kristen is one of the most popular female streamers on the platform.
Like any modern streamer, Kitty prefers games such as Fortnite, Dota 2, and KS: GO. There is no exact information regarding her income, however, people suggest approximate estimates of $300,000. Kristen is a recognized streamer as she creates and uploads content to the network twice a day. This makes her one of the most productive streamers.
In her streams, the girl admits that she doesn’t plan to engage exclusively in gaming throughout her life. Kristen’s ambitions relate to business initiatives in the fields of healthcare, marketing, and customer care.
Imane Anys is a 23-year-old streamer from Morocco. The girl moved to Los Angeles where she eventually became one of the most influential people in the streaming industry. With over 3.6 million followers, she is the most popular female streamer on the platform and one of the most popular in general.
Pokimane can be considered one of those streamers that stood at the origins of the industry. She began her activities in 2012, at the age of 16. Today, the girl is a regular participant in the Content Creator of the Year contest.
In addition to Twitch, Pokimane also has a successful YouTube channel with over 4.2 million subscribers. Speaking of Imane’s favorite games, we should mention Fortnite and League of Legends.
Lea May Currier, 30, can be called a true professional in the field. The girl was born in California. Lea graduated from the University of California with a degree in Psychology and Neuroscience.
Lea has over 647,000 followers, which makes her one of the most popular female streamers (although she is not in the top five). But despite the lower number of followers, we can confidently say that she has one of the most professional approaches to her activities. Lea is committed to providing her followers with truly high-quality content. From computer games, she prefers Overwatch and World of Warcraft, but she is a real expert in Heartstone.
Although she mostly prefers the games by Blizzard, Lea is constantly adding new games to her “portfolio” in order to entertain her followers.
Kaitlyn Siragusa from Houston, Texas, is an example of how a talented person combines several professions at once. The 26-year-old girl joined Twitch in 2016 and is currently the second most popular woman on Twitch with over 1,268,000 followers.
The girl became famous while still at school when she began to create her own costumes for cosplay models. Her acting talent helped her become a great cosplayer herself.
Kaitlyn prefers ASMR and ITL streams (which have become extremely popular lately) to video games. However, Amouranth does stream games too, and Apex Legends is one of the girl’s favorite titles.
Given that Amouranth is not just a successful streamer, but also a model, cosplayer, costume designer and business owner, her net profit is much higher than that of any other streamer and is estimated at millions of dollars.
Kathleen Belsten, 26, is an Australian streamer from Melbourne and she is the last in our list. With over 1.1 million followers on Twitch, Kathleen is one of the most popular female streamers on the platform and is definitely the most popular female streamer from Australia.
LoserFruit’s library of games is very diverse. Few female streamers can boast of such a huge list of games, including The Witcher 3, Overwatch, Call of Duty, Sims 4, Fortnite and even dance simulators. It is really impressive.
In addition to video games, Kathleen also has her vlog where she introduces subscribers to her daily life. LoserFruit fans celebrate her great sense of humor and non-standard but professional editing.
Kathleen’s net worth is estimated at approximately $800,000 a year.
Streaming is already an integral part of the gaming industry and it’s a real trend. Today, Twitch is a place that brings together a huge number of people interested in gaming. Someone comes here to get a kind of advice on gaming. Someone is looking for new emotions from observing how people discover new worlds. And someone prefers just to have some fun.
In addition to this, the platform is also an excellent marketing channel that has a very high level of engagement and conversion. Perhaps, there is no better place to promote your product that is related to gaming one way or another. That is why Twitch is gaining momentum with each passing day, while the talented streamers from our list are getting more and more followers.
