MrBeast, YouTube’s Biggest Philanthropist, Increases His Subs By Millions In Just Three Months
Jimmy Donaldson as MrBeast, a creative YouTube sensation, and philanthropist, has accomplished a big professional milestone — 60 million subscribers.
In just three months, Donaldson’s subscriber base grew by ten million.
On April 18, 2021, Donaldson accomplished the accomplishment, just three months after reaching a milestone of 50 million members on January 3, 2021.
He is presently the platform’s 14th most subscribed channel. Given that the majority of the top-subscribed channels are controlled by media companies (T-Series, WWE), musicians (Justin Bieber, Blackpink), and children’s channels, this puts him in a unique position (Cocomelon, Kids Diana Show).
Donaldson is also the most subscribed American YouTuber and the most subscribed YouTuber-owned channel behind PewDiePie.
He is one of YouTube’s most popular and well-paid creators while being only 22 years old. Across all six platforms, the YouTube sensation has nearly 95 million subscribers and 13.1 billion views. In the previous two years, he’s amassed over 10 million views on every video he’s released, showcasing his viral prowess.
On April 11, 2022, Donaldson announced on Twitter that his YouTube channel had received over a billion views in March. MrBeast Gaming, MrBeast Shorts, MrBeast 2, and Beast Reacts each received over 60% of the views, with the remainder coming from his other channels.
Beast Philanthropy is one of his newest channels, with 100% of the channel’s revenue going to the Food Pantry.
Donaldson claimed to be losing money on the channel.
The content creator is known for reading the whole dictionary, converting a backyard into a ball pit, giving away a million dollars, and participating in severe hide-and-seek adventures. His channel’s rise has been assisted by his tough challenges and cash giveaways.
Despite the success of his main YouTube channel, Donaldson claims to be losing money due to expenses incurred as a result of absurd pranks like “I Bought Everything In 5 Stores” and “I Gave People $1,000,000 But Only 1 Minute To Spend It.”
He is said to put the majority of his video revenues back into filming additional videos. In comparison to $10,000 only a few years ago, the YouTuber now spends up to $300,000 on a single video.
The philanthropist tweeted on January 10, 2021, that his ultimate objective is to have all of his other channels funnel money into his main channel so that he may produce more expensive videos in the future.
MrBeast’s net worth is unknown.
As of 2020, the North Carolina native is expected to have a net worth of $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. While YouTube is where he generates the most of his money, he also makes money through clothing sales, sponsorships, and businesses like MrBeast Burgers.
Forbes named him the second-highest-paid YouTuber of the year in 2020. His YouTube channel, clothing sales, and partnerships with companies like Microsoft, Honey, and Electronic Arts netted him almost $24 million. In December 2020, Donaldson launched the ‘MrBeast Burger’ in cooperation with over 300 eateries around the United States. The MrBeast Burger app swiftly rose to the top of the free app charts in the Apple store the day it was released.
Now, the company collaborates with over 420 restaurants worldwide, including those in Canada. The online sensation could have a future as a restaurateur, based on sales figures.
