MrBeast, the real name Jimmy Donaldson is an American YouTuber, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. The YouTuber will be 23 in May 2021. MrBeast started posting videos to YouTube in 2012. In 2017 one of his videos gained tens of thousands of views in a few days. Nowadays, his videos include expensive challenges that reward thousands of dollars, donation videos, and vlogs. As of January 2021, MrBeast has more than 51 million subscribers on YouTube. He also has some other channels on YouTube, such as MrBeast Shorts and MrBeast Gaming. Donaldson dropped out of college to spend all his time as a YouTuber. He is not married but is in a relationship with an Instagram model. Now let’s focus on some interesting information about him.
In his Twitter account, MrBeast responded that he was not faking anything in front of the camera. So, he has given lots of money for real. Some sources spread information that Donaldson was mistreating his employees by saying that he is suffering from Crohn’s disease and when he does not feel well, asks his employees to help with the videos.
Jimmy went with the MrBeast name because he thought he was cool. However, he never discloses his real name, at least in the complete version. The normal MrBeast channel was originally focused on the creation of gameplay videos. His primary games to cover were Minecraft and Call of Duty Black Ops 2. But the channel expanded as soon as he went away from gameplay videos. That’s one of the things to notice here, originality is what makes you viral in the online world, and you have to find some new ways to expand and explore the online ideas as you see fit. But it’s well worth it to begin with, and it constantly adjusts and adapts just like in MrBeast’s case.
Social media concentrated on him a lot when he gave 10,000 dollars as a tip for water, but, before that, he did lots of donations with more money. Lots of articles were published about MrBeast when he tipped 10,000 dollars.
Now he even has a burger restaurant. On December 19, 2020, it was announced that MrBeast Burger would release with 300 locations across the United States.
Every donation goes to the Arbor Day Foundation which pledges to plant one tree for every dollar. Trees began to be planted in October 2019 in the national parks of the United States. MrBeast has posted a video about this topic. His expensive YouTube videos are mostly funded and sponsored by the coupon company Honey and he talks about it a lot. MrBeast is also a fan of PewDiePie because during PewDiePie vs T-Series, a competition to become the most-subscribed channel on YouTube, Donaldson bought billboards, numerous ads, and radio advertisements to help PewDiePie gain more subscribers than T-Series.
MrBeast also sells T-shirts, bags, clothes and besides Honey, the main sponsors of his videos are TikTok, Quidd, CSGOLotto, etc. MrBEAST makes between 126K dollars to 2 million dollars per month via YouTube ad revenue from his main channel according to 2021 estimation from Social Blade.
