Alexandre Borba Chiqueta, popularly known as “Gaules” online, is a Brazilian Twitch streamer and YouTuber who used to be a professional Counter-Strike player and coach. In 2020, he became the second most-watched streamer on Twitch.

Let us learn more about Guales and his net worth.

Who Is Gaules?

Gaules whose real name is Alexandre Borba Chiqueta was born in São Paulo on December 2, 1983. He is a former CS:GO professional player and a coach who started streaming in December 2017. He began streaming after he became bankrupt and even attempted suicide. He is pretty open about his difficulties and episodes of depression, so he tries to assist others with the same issue. He also loves to show his appreciation for any support he receives by giving free skins to viewers and donating a large portion of the money he receives to charity.

This Brazilian powerhouse primarily streams CS:GO, but he occasionally streams GTA V RPG. His Counter-Strike channel is now one of the most popular in the world. On occasion, he also streams important competitions like Dreamhack, CS:GO Majors, and the Blat Pro Series.

Gaules Esports Career

Gaules began coming to a local “lan-house” every day when he was 14 years old, wanting to join the top counter-strike team from there since they played for free and he didn’t have any money to play. After a lengthy period, he was able to join this squad; however, the team eventually disintegrated, and he founded his own organization, “G3neration X,” in 2001.

His squad won several large competitions in Brazil and some in Europe and the United States, but in 2007, they merged with the most excellent counter-strike team in Brazil (MiBR), and Gaules was forced to retire, becoming the team’s manager and coach. One year later, while studying for a Marketing degree, he interned at Samsung before leaving the competitive scene to launch his own production firm, “Seleço Brasileira de Games” (Brazilian Team of Games). As a result of his accomplishment, he founded the “Brazil Gaming League,” “Agência x5”, and “Mega Arena x5”.

However, as his businesses began to fail in 2017, he opted to leave and sell them. Gaules was bankrupt, without a place to live, diagnosed with major depression, and even tried suicide due to disastrous investments.

Gaules Twitch Career

When Gaules was going through one of the most challenging times of his life, he attempted suicide due to his depressed condition. On the other hand, Alexandre has gained the courage to go on. Twitch was there to assist him.

His first stream was in January 2018. Alexandre was broke at the time, renting a small apartment with just a closet, a PC table, and a mattress (he didn’t even have a bed). Gaules had plenty of stories to tell his audience.

He used to stream for 5-10 people. He watched CS:GO matches and talked about his profession and his friends. Next, he commented on his first major, ELEAGUE Major 2018, in January.

Until September 2018, his channel held the record for the most minutes viewed each month. Gaules went from collecting money for antidepressants by streaming to being the most popular streamer in the CS:GO category in only nine months.

Currently, Gaules is a professional Twitch streamer with a verified account. On Twitch, he has over 3.3 million followers.

Gaules Net Worth – How They Made Money

Gaules allegedly collected $2,844,985.18 from Twitch payouts alone from August 2019 to October 2021, according to records leaked by Twitch on June 10, 2021. This figure excludes other outlets such as YouTube, sponsorships, and merchandising earnings. Some streams have verified that the statistics are correct, although it is still hypothetical at this time.

Gaules’ estimated net worth is more than $4,100,000. He presently earns an estimated $338,702.38 a month from numerous income sources.

Twitch

Subs: Twitch Subscriptions are divided between streamer and Twitch. New streamers are assigned to Tier 1 and receive a 50/50 split, making their subscriptions $2.50. If a streamer receives 1000+ views each month, they may renegotiate their share to a 60/40 split (Tier 2) or a 70/30 split (Tier 3) if they are famous.

Bits: A streamer earns $0.01 for every bit received.

Advertisements: Depending on their contracts, streamers who run Twitch ads earn between $10 and $20 CPM. This implies that they get $10-20 every 1000 viewers on the stream when the ad appears.

YouTube

Ads: YouTube channels are compensated per 1000 views (CPM). Typically, producers in the gaming niche will earn $2-7 CPM, which means they will be paid $2-7 per 1000 views on their channel. However, due to ad blockers and other circumstances, not all views are monetized. Most channels are reimbursed for approximately 80% of their audience.

Merch Sales

Gaules appears to have no merch; thus, he earns $0 each month from merch.

How Much Does Gaules Earn From Twitch?

Gaules earns an estimated $334,924.7 per month through Twitch. This is divided down as follows:

Subscriptions: According to Twitchtracker, Gaules has 50,241 active subscribers as of February 2022. Because he is likely to have a 70/30 split with Twitch, this implies he is making around $3.50 x 50,241 = $175,843.50 per month from Twitch subs.

Ads: Last month, Gaules streamed for nearly 714 hours, with an average audience of 21,577 people (half of this time is rerun). If he runs an ad twice an hour at a CPM of $10, he will earn 1428 x 10 x 21.58 = $308,162.4 per month from advertisements. However, given half of his time is spent on repeats, he is expected to earn roughly half of it, or $154,081.2.

Donations and Bits: Donations and bits are more difficult to compute since we don’t have any actual figures to work with. He is likely to earn an additional $3,000 – $5,000 or more in contributions each month based on his audience.
