MrBeast, the hugely popular YouTube maestro of big-money giveaways and offbeat stunts, has hit a new milestone.
In a statement, MrBeast (aka Jimmy Donaldson), said, “100 million means so much.
I’ve been making videos since I was 11 years old. This number in a way represents everything I’ve ever done in my life and I’m so grateful to everyone who’s ever watched a video.
To celebrate the feat, MrBeast plans to release new merchandise via an exclusive shoppable livestream on YouTube. And, according to YouTube, he’ll upload one of his most expensive videos ever on Aug. 4.
The 24-year-old is estimated to be 2021’s highest-earning YouTuber, raking in $54 million last year.
Donaldson remains No. 5 on the list of most-subscribed YouTube channels, after T-Series (221 million), Moonbug’s Cocomelon (139 million), SET India (138 million) and PewDiePie (111 million).
