Markiplier is a quirky character who has done a fair bit of comedic sketches and parodies. His channel currently has more than 15 million subscribers. Markiplier’s net worth stands at $5.5 million, reported Forbes.
Markiplier Elder Brother
Markiplier is not the only talent in his family. His elder brother Thomas Jason Fischbach is a digital artist who created and wrote the web comics “TwoKinds.” He has also provided voiceover to one of Mark’s playthroughs of “Orcs Must Die!” Even though he has appeared in a couple of streams of his younger brother, he always shies away from the camera.
Only after a lot of coaxing from Markiplier did Tom face the camera directly. Otherwise, people only get to hear his voice in most of his videos.
Some of Markiplier’s fans started alleging a few weeks ago that he was dating someone. A frantic search began to find out the identity of the girl the comedian is dating.
Cashing in on the opportunity, and in an attempt to throw his fans off, Markiplier made a video titled “Who’s Markiplier’s Girlfriend?” This angered many fans who thought that their idol was deliberately trying to pull a prank on them.
After a lot of speculations, Markiplier could no longer keep his love life under wraps anymore. She was finally revealed as Amy Nelson, a graphic designer and animator. She is originally from Boston but currently lives in L.A.
Before her identity was publicly revealed, she appeared in flashes and behind-the-monitor shadows in Markiplier’s videos. According to We The Unicorns, Mark officially introduced her as his girlfriend in a GIF from PAX 2016.
