MrBeast has finally made his way to the most exclusive youtube club of 100 Million subscribers. Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a MrBeast is the 2nd individual run channel after PewDiePie and 5th Youtube channel to make it to the 100 million club.
Jimmy has become the first individual creator from the United States to reach the 100 million mark after PewDiePie from Sweden who reached the 100 million mark back in 2019. “100 million means so much. I’ve been making videos since I was 11 years old,” said Donaldson in a press release. “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. I hope to do YouTube until the day I die.”
MrBeast first came to the platform in 2012 when he uploaded his first Minecraft playthrough video. But the main success came to him starting in 2018 when his video about challenges and giveaways involving large amounts of money started trending on YouTube.
Since then, his videos have evolved to take on shock-inducing challenges, like not eating for 30 days or creating a real-life Squid Game with more than 100 people.
To celebrate this career-defining milestone, MrBeast will soon be releasing new merch, made exclusively shoppable by YouTube’s Live Shopping feature. He’s also planning on releasing one of his most expensive videos to date on August 4 Plus an exclusive video thanking his community and fans will be uploaded soon.
