Alia Shelesh was born on 22 October 1992, in England, but of part-Greek and Turkish descent, and is a YouTube personality, best known for initially earning popularity on the website as a gamer, posting various “Call of Duty” gameplay videos. She’s since expanded to include other content as well.
The Net Worth of Sssniperwolf
How rich is Sssniperwolf? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $2 million, earned through a successful career on YouTube. She’s also started a second channel called “Little Lia”, which focuses on DIY videos. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
While Sssniperwolf was born in England, her family later moved to Arizona in the United States when she was six years old. She is. After moving to the US, she started developing an interest in video games. Eventually, she started her own YouTube channel called SSSniperWolf which is a name based from a video game she was fond of growing up called “Metal Gear Solid”.
She started posting videos about “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2”, and quickly started to earn popularity as she was one of the first girl gamers to launch their own YouTube channel. Eventually she started to expand her content, creating videos about other games such as “Metal Gear Rising”, and “Call of Duty: Ghosts”, also posting other types of content such as vlogs and tips videos. Her channel would grow to have over 11 million subscribers, but since the website’s landscape was also changing, she started to divert her videos to other more popular topics.

Expanding Her Content
Like most YouTubers, Sssniperwolf responded to the ever changing demand of YouTube subscribers, posting more videos which interacted with the crowd, including videos that didn’t really have anything to do with video games. She posted cosplay content, video games related items, and videos on pop culture topics as well as reaction videos which continued to give her consistent interaction on her channel. With a desire to focus more on DIY videos, she also started a second channel called Little Lia.
Her second channel Little Lia initially began with DIY videos, but later began to focus on fashion, beauty, make-up, and shopping, topics which she couldn’t really talk about on her main channel which was primarily devoted to gaming. Her second channel also grew steadily, and has reached over 300,000 subscribers, but she doesn’t post as often on Little Lia as she does on her Sssniperwolf channel. One of the reasons for her continued online success is her physical attributes, as many of her fans are apparently attracted to her looks. She also has a lot of talents such as her video game skills, and she is also good with a hula hoop!

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Sssniperwolf’s past especially when other critics of her channel started uncovering a previous channel that she used to own called “Sexy Sexy Sniper”. While she has denied any association to a previous channel, the channel “Sexy Sexy Sniper” has long been deleted anyway, and it was mostly filled with sex-related content apparently to help gain more followers. The issue continued to escalate as various gamer YouTube personalities accused her of using gameplay from other lesser known channels, making post-game commentaries about the gameplay, before labelling the videos as her own.
Many of her critics believe that the reason she’s now posted fewer videos about gaming is because she can no longer reproduce the same level of high level gameplay content on her channel. Due to the many criticisms she’s had, Sssniperwolf has had clashes with numerous people online, as she continues to defend her videos as being original. Many fans have also stepped-up to her aid, and a lot of the said evidence against her videos have lessened over time. She continues to be highly active within the gaming community, and is usually seen in gaming events.
For her personal life, it is known that Sssniperwolf has had an on-off relationship with fellow YouTube personality Evan Sausage. According to reports, the two met early in Sssniperwolf’s YouTube career, at one point bought a house together, but after a couple of separations, are now ‘just friends’, but remain close. She has mentioned that she completed her high school education and decided not to go to college and instead focus on her YouTube career. She did enter community college later with the intent of studying game design, but decided that it was not for her, and returned her focus to making videos. She also owns two dogs which she often features on her social media accounts.
