If you’ve been anywhere on social media recently, you’ll know there is currently a lot of hype surrounding one TikTok influencer, in particular, Andrew Tate. Tate has established a high level of fame, starting his career as a recognized Kickboxer before going on to make several appearances on reality TV shows. However, the moment his fame really began to skyrocket was when his most recent campaigns kicked in on Tiktok.
Andrew Tate’s content is often hard to ignore and, due to the nature of his messages, has been highly successful at sparking debates and commentary on what it means to be a man in this world. People from all scopes of belief have been itching to chime in, either supporting Tate’s claims or looking to debunk and expose the viral social media sensation.
A Closer Look
When you boil down Andrew Tate’s overarching message, he is looking to re-masculinize society in an age of “soft men”. In this day and age, “soft men” are running rampant. We see the idea that a man can get the shorter end of the stick emphasized heavily in everything from marriage to parking tickets. Tate’s content revolves around illustrating how good men are being progressively put in a mindset of not being able to achieve their full potential. Due to conditions implemented by the political left, men have found themselves at the bottom of the food chain without much merit.
Tate’s approach is to create a character among the various content videos on social media that teaches individuals to essentially cut out the negativity from their lives from anyone they meet. Andrew Tate’s views are often painted as hyper-misogynistic by the radical left. However, since their views are being challenged, they selectively miss the content where Tate describes what good men and good women are.
Andrew Tate has done a good job at splitting opinions, which signifies the topic’s weight. If the topic of a man taking back his masculinity is stirring such negative reactions from people, this could be a sign of extreme social conditioning. Most of Tate’s traction on social media comes from his followers, who find themselves gravitating towards this breath-of-fresh-air style social media content, in which men come together to support each other.
A Growing Brand
Andrew Tate is making a substantial reputation, encouraging other content creators to recognize and remark upon on their own social media platforms. Most notably among these is the podcast “impulsive” by Logan Paul, in which Jake Paul weighs in on the influence of Andrew Tate’s message on younger men.
On the other hand, Andrew Tate also has social media influencers that are not on his side. One in particular, Drew Afualo remarks, “Men like that don’t want to learn. They don’t even really want to debate… They just want a platform to spew their venom… I don’t put them on my podcast. I don’t platform them whatsoever.”
All this being said, the man himself is objectively very successful, sporting a few businesses that have generated a hefty amount of money over the course of his career. Let’s take a more in depth look at who this man really is inside of his wallet.
Andrew Tate’s Net Worth
As of 2022, Andrew Tate’s total net worth boasts $350 million dollars. This is an accumulation of his laundry list of business accomplishments and occupations, including Kickboxer, Pobcaster, Commentator, and Online Entrepreneur.
Andrew Tate’s primary source of income is what is referred to as Hustlers University. This online e-course or online course has subscribers pay a monthly fee to be tutored and mentored in the realm of business and social reformation, serving to strip away the inhibitions from society on soft men and reform them into stronger, more willful members of society and, at the end of the day, better human beings.
Hustlers University is making Andrew Tate and his brother, Tristen Tate, $300 million dollars a year in total revenue. Before Andrew Tate was boasting this much in cash revenue, though, his beginnings were certainly more humble, starting as a professional kickboxer where he would earn the World Champion Title 4 separate times.
This money was nowhere near to what he is currently making, and his biggest paycheck at the time would have earned him $100,000. After so long, the time and effort needed to dedicate to the profession in order to cash in would turn out not to be worth it for Tate. He would set his sights on new ventures to progress his earnings further.
Andrew Tate is also a successful casino owner, a career which nets him millions of dollars per month in additional revenue. This casino is located in Romania, a business venture which was kindled in Tate’s less financially stable days, where he would frequent similar establishments in the hopes of hitting the jackpot.
It was after he started generating revenue from his kickboxing career that he would invest, along with his brother, into buying their own casino, significantly boosting his revenue.
OnlyFans Modeling Agency
As a means of generating more income prior to larger investments like his Romanian casino, Andrew Tate would look to more conventional means of making money by playing the market.
To start his financial crusade, Andrew Tate would look to helping adult female models develop their presence online through marketing and management. The deal he offered models was a 50/50 cut from profits, with revenue generated from their work split in two ways. This online business model would become a flagship enterprise that would allow Andrew Tate to build his finances and investments.
Tate remarks that, at one point during the height of this venture, some models were bringing in up to $50,000 in revenue a month.
4 Time World Champion Kickboxer
The Tate brothers, at one point, were heavily involved in the professional kickboxing scene. By the time Trisan Tate earned the title of European kickboxing champion, Andrew Tate had accomplished 4 world championship kickboxing titles.
At the height of Tate’s kickboxing career, he earned his biggest check at the time, valued at $100,000. Of this check, 30% of the $100,000 amount was taken and delegated to the coach along with other fees, with 70% going to Tate himself.
It was a little further on when the cost of his homespace in London began to pose more of a financial burden that Tate would seek other financial ventures to support his lavish lifestyle. From the connections he had made within the kickboxing industry, this would lead to a natural inception of his next major venture.
The Beginnings Of Andrew Tate
“Cobra Tate”, formally Emory Andrew Tate, was born on December 1st, 1986. He is one of three siblings, alongside brother and sister, Tristan and Janie Tate.
His father, Emory Tate, had a combat history, alongside his background in athletics and wrestling, his highly developed combat skills led to Emory enlisting in the US military. Emory was also proficient in the game of chess, going on to win the US Military Chess Championship a total of 3 times.
Andrew was heavily inspired by his father’s teachings and accomplishments, leading him to following suit in a proficiency in combat skills and athleticism. Most notable, his father’s teachings of the strategic game of chess, which Andrew Tate references to illustrate his ideas to the masses in the present day, sculpted his mindset of how to overcome adversity intelligently.
Believe it or not, chess was such a huge part in the life of Andrew Tate that, based on his father’s teachings, he was able to not only hold his ground but compete with senior level players in the sport by the time he was just 6 years old.
Andrew Tate’s early life was that of little financial wealth. His family’s way of staying afloat financially included Tate’s father jumping between minimum wage jobs to keep the bills paid. Tranquility lasted for a brief moment, until the costs of living became so severe on his parents that, eventually, they could no longer afford to keep their property.
It was around when Andrew Tate was 10 years of age that his mother brought him along with his two other siblings to live with her in England. At this time, Andrew found himself working a physically demanding job which included the transportation of heavy boxes of frozen fish to nearby markets.
Fast Forward To His Young Adulthood/ Kickboxing Career
By the time Andrew Tate was 23, he was on his way to starting his legacy in the limelight. In 2009, Tate began to formulate his career in the kickboxing industry. He would go on to win the International Sport Karate Association English Light-cruiserweight title. This would mark his first successful championship win, enabling him to earn his first belt.
In the same year, he would go on to successfully conduct a first-round Knockout in a fight with Daniel Hughes. Later, by the year of 2012, Andrew Tate would find himself competing in the Trial of Gladiators, marking a remarkable defeat in the first round from a flying knee to the chin.
To recover from this career halt, Andrew Tate would find himself in a match with Wendell Roche two years later. In this match, Tate proved to be the better fighter, knocking out Roche in the second round. After this remarkable success, he gained his second ever championship title.
Andrew Tate would continue to be a formidable opponent in the kickboxing scene, all the way up until mid 2020. Still, there is speculation that he will dip his toes back into the ring after challenging another big name in the combat sport realm, Jake Paul, for a total prize of 3 million dollars.
After finding his kickboxing to not be lucrative enough, Andrew Tate would go on to look for other ventures that are more beneficial to the expansion of his empire.
Is Andrew Tate Right In His Claims?
This is a controversial topic for some, however Andrew Tate does have the background to make what some would consider impactful claims, for better or for worse. Of course, it is human to formulate your own opinion on topics you are exposed to in the course of your life, so there may, of course, be some statements provided by Cobra Tate you may disagree with.
Here, we’re going to illustrate some of the statements provided by Andrew Tate and interpret their meanings:
“A ghost cannot haunt you if you don’t believe in ghosts. You’d simply walk around your ‘haunted’ house like a champion, ignoring the knocks in the night, attributing them to wind. Who cares?
It’s only the believers who suffer fear. Belief gives power.” Much of what Andrew Tate discusses on the Internet can be considered messages of empowerment. The history that he has with adversity enables him to effectively communicate through the process of dealing with situations of high stakes considerably.
“Belief gives power.” In this, Andrew Tate is emphasizing that how you react to any given situation has much to do with your relationship with your psyche. If “being in your head” suddenly spells a recipe for you to “lose your sh*t”, you should probably work on refining your composure. This is a great skill to command success in your life and also to effectively handle yourself in difficult situations.
“A man must physically protect his woman. But a woman must spiritually protect her man. She must bring positivity and joy.” Andrew Tate is making strides in redefining gender roles back to their biological implementations. Whether or not you go along with this message is up to you but, at the end of the day, there is merit to what he is referring to. Of course, depending on whether or not you are religious may play a role in how much you actually agree with Tate’s messages.
Being a fighter and fan of extensively rigorous training, Tate has picked up on a few cues about what men and women might be capable of. From the fighting side, it has everything to do with the study of the body and energy. Referencing a Taosit method of belief there are two energies that reside inside of us, Yin and Yang, Tate believes there is balance between the two. Similarly to the genders, man and woman, each gender has an affiliation with either type of energy, from a biological standpoint. Women are incapable of being the driving force of extreme physical exertion. Men are incapable of being the driving force of extreme levels of compassion and love. There is balance between the two in a relationship that should be upheld to keep a relationship at least spiritually sound.
“Most of you are wasting your life force. Most of you are putting time and energy into a job that can never get you rich. You’re pursuing an old outdated business model. You do not know what you do not know. Only knowledge can set you on the true path to freedom.” Tate is also a proponent of the knowledge of how to get rich. Tate often illustrates that, in order to be great and able to achieve your goals, you need to take risks and not stick to the cookie cutter way of doing things. Put your eggs in multiple baskets, certainly, but having more than one basket is key to realizing your potential and wealth.
Andrew Tate has become a prominent figure in the realm of self help and entrepreneurship. He gives a breath of fresh air to the “good males” who feel as if they’ve been forced to settle in their lives. Through his remarkable feats and goal-oriented persona, many of his claims are worth considering or looking at a little deeper to find a meaning that benefits your life in some way.
