About Mr. Beast
Birthdate: May 7, 1998
Birthplace: Greenville, North Carolina, United States
Occupation: Professional gamer, Youtuber, Internet personality, and philanthropist
Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his online alias Mr. Beast, was born on May 7, 1988, in North Carolina, United States. In 2011, when he was 13 years old, he began posting videos on YouTube under the handle, MrBeast6000. He began by posting random videos. Later on, he gained attention with his video series titled, “ Worst Intros on YouTube” – and he became even more popular as he published game-related videos.
His first-ever game-related video involved him playing Minecraft. This video was reuploaded in 2015 under his channel, MrBeast, and was titled MrBeast6000’s First Video. Even in early videos such as this, Mr. Beast’s charisma, laid-back nature, and effortless sense of humour shone. However, his early videos gained a relatively lower average number of views of about a thousand.
His YouTube views skyrocketed with the release of his 2017 video titled, “I Counted to 100000!”. The stunt took him around 40 hours to complete, with parts of the video sped up so that it could be uploaded. This video gave him tens of thousands of views within just a matter of days. And with that, Mr. Beast introduced a unique content format on YouTube that featured attention-grabbing stunts and challenges.
Since then, he has done even more memorable stunts – such as the following: staying underwater for 24 hours, breaking glass using only megaphones, putting 100 million orbeez in a friend’s backyard, building the world’s largest lego tower, and more.
Meanwhile, his equally-popular challenge videos typically involve him giving away a large sum of prize money to the winner of a random challenge. A few examples include: last to leave the slime pit wins $20,000, last to leave VR wins $20,000, and more recently, last to leave $800,000 island keeps it.
Mr. Beast remains active on a number of channels, where he uploads stunts, challenges, reaction videos, gaming videos, and shorts. These channels include:
Such quality video content did not go unnoticed. In 2019, Mr. Beast won the 9th Annual Streamy Awards for the category of Breakout Creator. 2020 was an even better year for Mr. Beast as he won multiple awards in the 10th Annual Streamy Awards for the following categories: Creator of the Year, Live Special, Social Good: Creator, and Social Good: Nonprofit or NGO. He also received the Youtuber of the Year in the 12th Annual Shorty Awards.
Mr. Beast currently has a total of 65.6 million subscribers and a total of 9.3 billion combined views. But alongside Mr. Beast’s massive success as a YouTuber, he is also a man on a mission.
In 2019, Mr. Beast organized a collaborative fundraiser which was called #TeamTrees. The concept of #TeamTrees is that for every dollar donated, a tree is planted. Originally, the goal was to raise 20 million dollars for this cause and to plant an equal number of trees.
However, #TeamTrees is only in its second year and has already surpassed the original goal- now having 22.4 million dollars. On top of donations coming in from the large fanbase of Mr. Beast, the project has also received large sums from the likes of Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Susan Wojcicki, Tobias Lütke, and many others.
