Jimmy Donaldson (born: May 7, 1998YouTuber and philanthropist who was born in Kansas City, Kansas. He is currently residing in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is known for his videos that often consist of him doing arduous tasks for an extended amount of time, doing or saying something thousands of times, challenges and donations that involve millions of dollars, and more. With unrelenting passion and devotion to finishing arduous, yet creative, challenges, Jimmy has become an extremely popular YouTuber in recent years. He is known for giving away a lot of money.), better known online as MrBeast (formerly known as MrBeast6000), is an American
The channel is mostly run by Jimmy himself, his friend Chris and several other affiliates, who make very outrageous experiments, challenges, or donations that usually involve incredible amounts of money. Currently, his main channel is the 16th most subscribed channel in the world. He started this channel in 2012 at the age of 13.
He also has a second channel called Beast Reacts (formerly BeastHacks & Mr.Beast) where Jimmy and his friends react, commentate, and review on life hacks, and roast them if they are disgusting or bad. In May 2020, he started a gaming channel named MrBeast Gaming, releasing 3 videos every week which has over 10 million subscribers. He also has MrBeast Shorts where he uploads around 10-30 second clips of him and his friends doing random things. Some of those videos are posted on his TikTok. He has another channel MrBeast 2 where he posts live-streams and the steps to his $100,000 riddle. Along with English YouTuber JackSucksAtLife, he created the channel Don’t Subscribe. He gives ten cents to Jack for every subscriber. The channel is currertly on 719K subscribers as of December 19, 2020, so Jack has made 71,900 dollars. But suprisingly, Jack does not have access to the channel.
His brother, CJ Donaldson, also has a channel inspired by his brother, called MrBro. He started his channel in 2017 but only started posting in August of 2019. He also makes challenge videos, like his brother.
Jimmy is also known for making fun of Minecraft, a game developed by Mojang. He made a two-episode series playing it and was finished playing the game for good after his house got blown up by a creeper. Due to that incident, he has since deleted the game. Since then, Jimmy has made a sudden return to Minecraft, collaborating with fellow YouTuber Dream in the video titled "3 Minecraft Speedrunners VS Hunter ft. MrBeast" featured on Dream's YouTube channel. It seems like Jimmy is starting to like Minecraft more than he did a few years back. He has since, made a channel called MrBeast Gaming, where he does challenges with his views for money. The challenges are usually in Minecraft and involve parkour, building or fighting, usually for money, gift cards, food, and for no reason. One of the stranger prizes was a freey supply of yogurt for 10 years.
One of the most craziest challenges done on the gaming channel was the $100,000 gift card hunt on the Dream SMP. The prize was $100,000 worth of gift cards from different stores. The challenge was ultimately won by Tubbo, who decided to selflessly give away his earnings on a livestream.

PewDiePie vs T-Series
On October 24, 2018, Jimmy made a video called, I Bought Every Billboard in my City to do this. In the video, Jimmy used multiple billboards around his city to advertise PewDiePie and to prevent a music company, T-Series, from surpassing PewDiePie in subscribers. Additionally, Jimmy created online ads to advertise PewDiePie that, when clicked, redirects to PewDiePie's channel.
Jimmy also advertised PewDiePie on public posts, newspapers, and the radio, the PewDiePie advertisements have garnered significant attention locally and globally, causing PewDiePie's channel to grow at a faster rate than T-Series. T-Series was approximately less than 100,000 subscribers away from becoming the most subscribed channel up until the release of Jimmy's video, which temporarily halted the channel's growth. Likewise, Jimmy's channel had also gained exponential growth off of the video and the advertisement, which he had mentioned himself on multiple occasions.
Saying PewDiePie 100,000 Times
Even after Jimmy advertised PewDiePie with billboards, it did not stop T-Series from slowing down from PewDiePie longer. T-Series was approximately 90,000 subscribers away from surpassing PewDiePie before Jimmy made another video to keep PewDiePie #1 most subscribed. On November 25, 2018, Jimmy says PewDiePie 100,000 times. At the start of the video, Jimmy tells his fans and new-comers to subscribe to PewDiePie and to help him win the war. The subscriber growth was given to PewDiePie once again, gaining 244,000 subscribers the day of Jimmy's upload, and 247,000 subscribers the next day.
Jimmy also gained major exposure from the video and gained 181,000 subscribers on the day of its upload, which is Jimmy's fastest growth in terms of subscribers in the past 24 hours. Jimmy also gained 151,000 subscribers the next day.
Even after Jimmy helped out PewDiePie, PewDiePie made a tweet, It looks like this is it boys. with a picture of a text saying Dawn of The Final Day 24 Hours Remain, in which PewDiePie now surrenders his #1 most subscribed title, as T-Series growth had not stopped. Jimmy also made a tweet responding to PewDiePie saying It was an honour fighting by your side, in which Jimmy gives up and can no longer help PewDiePie further, possibly to prevent lack of PewDiePie videos from Jimmy, as it can get weaker along the way.
Advertising PewDiePie at the Super Bowl
On February 3, Jimmy and his affiliates Chris, Chandler, Garrett, and Jake made plans to try and advertise fellow YouTuber PewDiePie's channel while attending Super Bowl LIII (53). To do so, Jimmy bought seats next to one of the end zones, with him and his affiliates wearing shirts ultimately spelling out "SUB 2 PEWDIEPIE" to be seen during one of the field goals. The attempt was broadcasted on live television, with approximately 110 million viewers watching the game. ESPN later tweeted a picture of one of the field goals, subsequently featuring Jimmy's ad. Afterwards, PewDiePie's growth grew from 50,000 subscribers to 277,000 subscribers in a single day.
Jimmy has received criticism for his usage of clickbait to make money and obtain subscribers.
MrBeast "Faking" His Videos
On April 4, 2018, a YouTuber known as FlyyDoesYT posted a video claiming that Jimmy's videos are fake, and only stars in the beginning (such as in I Tipped Waitresses $20,000) and that he has multiple employees who are miserable working for him, the next day, DramaAlert had an interview with Jimmy about the situation. In response, Jimmy stated that his videos are not fake, his employees love working for him, and he has spent at least $500,000 donating and giving out to people in his videos. He has also confirmed that he has Crohn's disease, stating that it's the reason why he was not in the entire "I Tipped Waitresses $20,000" video. He even mentions that none of his videos are fake. Fans have since defended Jimmy, and FlyyDoesYT has gotten negative responses over his video because of it.
Ever since Jimmy released his viral video, "Can 20,000 Magnets Stop a Bullet Mid Air?", which quickly became Jimmy's most viewed video of his in 3 days, the video became pretty controversial due to the thumbnail. The thumbnail does show Jimmy firing an AK weapon towards another person (Chris, Jimmy's roommate), while it did not happen in the video. YouTube has made its Guidelines more strict about guns in videos and thumbnails, especially with it affecting Gun Channels.
People say Jimmy's thumbnail is breaking YouTube's Community Guidelines because of what the thumbnail contains. People say it's misleading and harmful. Due to the criticism that followed, the thumbnail had been changed to not include the person on the opposite side. At the time before the video was removed, it had received a mass amount of dislikes ever recorded on Jimmy's YouTube channel at the time, at least a 25% dislike ratio, and a 75% like ratio. The controversial video (although it was removed or set to private by Jimmy at an unspecified time) was reuploaded on June 31, 2019, by a fan posing as MrBeast's YouTube Channel, only with Chris being excluded from its thumbnail. Still, the video continued to remain available online.
Giving Away Fake Money?
In Jimmy's video titled "I Opened A FREE BANK", people started to claim that Jimmy never actually gave away the money as he shows in his videos. Their evidence was that in one frame of the video, you could see that the money he had given to someone was "prop money" that would have been used in films. This criticism also appeared on DramaAlert, where Keemstar defended him using the disclaimer Jimmy had put in the video description. The statement said:
"We used motion picture money when making this video. Everyone who received the money in the video was paid by check after they left for security purposes (I can’t just carry 6 figures in cash lol). Everyone received 100% of the money they were given."
After this was shown on DramaAlert, people started to believe Jimmy.
Jimmy had planned a video for multiple YouTubers to win a 100 grand for a long time. It had finally been released on December 12, 2018, on the Jimmy channel. 12 YouTubers decided to join the challenge to win $100,000.
The rules were as stated: you cannot lay down, you cannot sit down, you can't leave the circle (regardless if you have 1 foot out), and you will be wearing a vest and having 2 lbs added onto the vest every hour to make it more challenging and tiring for the competitors.

TeamTrees – Planting 20 Million Trees
Main article: TeamTrees.org
On October 13, 2019, Jimmy stated that October 25 is going to be the largest YouTube collaboration of all time, with many creators replying to join the collaboration. On October 25, Jimmy alongside fellow YouTuber and former NASA engineer Mark Rober announced that they will start a campaign to plant 20 million trees by January 1, 2020. Jimmy had this idea after reaching 20 million subscribers when his fans began requesting him to plant 20 million trees to celebrate the milestone, and to help restore forests lost due to recent forest fires. The campaign is conducted through the charity Arbor Day Foundation, and the campaign is spread through #TeamTrees, where every dollar donated is equal to one new tree being planted. Thousands of creators and artists, including PewDiePie, Alan Walker, Jeffree Star, Ninja, Jacksepticeye, DanTDM, TheOdd1sOut, and many more have donated and made videos supporting the campaign. On October 29, Elon Musk donated $1,000,000 towards the campaign, followed closely by Tobi Lutke donating $1,000,001 the next day. The goal was reached on December 20, 2019, but still allowed to keep increasing the numbers. Right now as of Feburary 6th, 2021, they have raised over 22,600,000 dollars to plant that many trees.
- Main article: MrBeast Burger on the MrBeast Wiki
MrBeast Burger is an online delivery only fast-food chain and restaurant brand created by MrBeast. This restaurant, temporarily opened physically in only one location, is the key setting and location for the video "I Opened A Restaurant That Pays You To Eat At It".
In a November 2020 article with The Wake Weekly, Will Hyde, a producer of the MrBeast channel, announced that Jimmy would launch a virtual restaurant called "MrBeast Burger" in December 2020. Hyde said his team worked with the company "Virtual Dining Concepts" during the development of the virtual restaurant concept. MrBeast Burger then serves the burgers to restaurants across the United States and customers will be able to order the burgers via online delivery services.
On December 19, 2020, the MrBeast Burger application for Android and iOS devices was developed for ordering food from there only by delivery. For now, the MrBeast Burger deliveries are only available in 300 locations in the United States and not internationally, but there are plans to allow these deliveries to happen internationally in the future.
Real Life Videos
Jimmy currently makes random "real-life" videos that he considers "dumb", but nobody has ever seen or done before. He would mostly do outdoor experiments to see what would happen if he were to do a certain thing to certain objects. In addition, he creates "world record videos" where he attempts to break world records (among other forms). The style of these random real-life videos is "Creative Videos" (ex: Destroying My Friend's Car And Surprising Him With A New One), "Experiment Videos" (ex: Can 20,000 Magnets Catch A Bullet Mid Air?), "World Record Videos" (ex: 2,256 Miles In One Uber Ride), and "Challenge Videos" (ex: Breaking Into The World's Toughest Safe).
Jimmy donates large amounts of money to small Twitch creators, such as his donation of $50,000 to Fortnite Twitch Streamer, Ninja to help St. Judes Cancer Research Charity. He had also donated $30,000 to Ninja to help the Suicide Prevention Center. Jimmy also donated the same amount ($30,000) to another Fortnite Twitch streamer, known as SpaceLyon. In addition to that, he has donated money to "Attractive Twitch Streamers."
Apart from Twitch, he has given thousands of dollars to homeless people. This includes giving $10,000 tips to pizza delivery guys, and multiple videos of a similar fashion.
Worst Intros On YouTube
Jimmy's series, the Worst Intros On YouTube, was one of the reasons his channel gained popularity. The series had about 70+ videos and is arguably considered to be the biggest reason that he is popular on YouTube in the first place. In these videos, Jimmy showcases and rants on horrible YouTube intros, usually made by young people. Throughout the series, he repeats the same jokes involving Asian people, bleach, leaving a child home alone with a phone, and explosions, which he claims can be used "to cure brain cells of cancer". Most of the intros were recorded on smartphones, with the YouTuber dancing in front of the camera with music that they make with their voice in the background, holding a sign that says their username usually on pieces of paper. To add more insult to injury, the signs portrayed were typically unintelligible. He occasionally also stumbles upon "troll intros" made solely to become a part of his series. He also included Minecraft intros and Club Penguin intros in his series. On March 28, 2018, Jimmy private all his Worst Intros videos. A variety of people believed that the reasoning to why he did so was because the series has died down and that Jimmy wanted to stick with real-life videos full-time. He first private one of his most popular Worst Intros videos and then did the same to the rest about a week later. On August 1, 2018, Jimmy private his last public Worst Intro video titled "WORST INTROS EVER", which had 20 million views and was once his most popular video before the growth of his real-life videos. However, some of it has been re-uploaded by other people.
Jimmy's influence on YouTube has caused many of his fans to do some "questionable" things in the name of him. This includes fans running down their local street screaming his name, to going to public areas screaming his name. These instances have successfully caught Jimmy's attention, leading him to feature such videos in his own videos on occasion.
Long Videos & Streams
Jimmy used to stream and record videos of himself doing challenges that took nonsensical amounts of time. This includes spinning a fidget spinner for 24 hours, reading the entire Dictionary, even counting to 200,000 (in two day-long halves so far; in a series that focuses on counting to a million), and reading the entire bible in one video. Ironically, Jimmy started playing this game back in 2012.
Since hitting 3 million subscribers, Jimmy has flown out to people's residences who were his channel's millionth subscriber to give the subscriber a challenge. If they completed the challenge, they are given several items that correspond to how many subscribers his channel has (ex: 3 million pennies for 3 million subscribers). His most recent Subscriber Special video was where MrBeast gave his 40th million subscriber 24 hours to give away 40 cars. If he did, he got a custom MrBeast porche.
Best Intros is a spin-off series based on his previous series Worst Intros. Unlike the Worst Intros series, Jimmy and his friends are featured ranting and critiquing some of the "best" intros they have found online. However, the series primarily features poorly created and sometimes blatantly low-quality intros, similar to the Worst Intros series. It can be said that the series was mainly created in the means of satire and comedic purposes.
MrBeast's 2020 YouTube Rewind
On November 17, 2020, MrBeast announced that he was going to make his own YouTube Rewind due to YouTube cancelling their annual Rewind that year. MrBeast also said that if other YouTubers wanted to come and help, they could reply to him on Twitter. After 1 month, MrBeast released his own YouTube Rewind on January 1, 2021, titled "Youtube Rewind 2020, Thank God It's Over".
It featured many notable YouTubers giving their thoughts about what should be in MrBeast's Rewind, and their thoughts about the worst events of 2020. In addition, there were tributes to some celebrities who passed away in 2020, such as Kobe Bryant, Chadwick Boseman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Alex Trebek. There was also a so-called "face reveal" which had been teased by Dream on his Twitter prior to the release of the Rewind, though his face was not shown, instead being hidden under a mask.
