Finally, the “MrBeast 2” channel has seen only two uploads so far but has 2.82 million subscribers. Overall, with more than 100 million subscribers on YouTube, MrBeast regularly registers almost 100 million views per month, which translates to earnings of around $1-1.5 million per month.
At age 12, he created his first two YouTube channels. In one, he filmed himself playing the video game Call of Duty. In the other, he played Minecraft. He named both channels using a riff on Beast, his Xbox playing handle. Over time, he grew increasingly curious about the site’s economics. At one point, he filmed a series of videos estimating the earnings of top creators, starting with PewDiePie, the long-reigning king of YouTube.
Mr Beast’s first check from YouTube arrived when MrBeast crossed 10,000 subscribers. It wasn’t a windfall. For the first few years, he filmed every video on his phone. He lacked a microphone and his laptop crashed frequently.
After high school, Donaldson went to college briefly at the request of his mom, who’d raised him and his siblings on her own. But he soon dropped out without telling her and turned to his preferred pastime: making YouTube videos. “I didn’t have much money, so I wanted to do something big,” he said.
The success of the counting video taught him an important lesson. While many of his friends were interested in getting the most views with the least effort, he wanted to convey to the audience how hard he was working. His stunts grew more extravagant. He watched a fellow YouTuber’s rap video on loop for 10 hours. He spend 24 hours in a island, then an insane asylum, then a deserted island.

The views on his videos, which are YouTube’s primary currency, started to snowball. In his first six years on the site, he had generated just 7 million views. But at the age of 18, with his full attention on YouTube, he earned 122 million annual views. At 19, he attracted more than 460 million. He now generates 4 billion views a year. “The beauty of YouTube is double the effort isn’t double the views, it’s like 10x,” he said. “The first million subscribers you get will take years, but the second will come in a few months.”
Mr Beast having a true formula. The majority of his views don’t come from new clips, but from people who stumble on older footage that the site’s algorithm has recommended. His real secret, he said, traces back to the video of him counting to 100,000. Viewers are attracted to displays of sheer willpower.
Beast now generates tens of millions of dollars in advertising sales from his social media feeds, which include his main channel, a gaming channel and pages on other social media sites. That is his main chanlles only. He invests almost every dollar back into his business. In recent years, his average cost of making a single video has climbed to $300,000 from $10,000. “Money is a vehicle to do bigger videos and make better content,” he said.
To date, his priciest video cost $1.2 million. In it, he promised to give $1 million to the contestant who could keep his hand on a stack of cash for the longest period of time. That is the challenge. In the end, he felt bad for the three people who didn’t get the $1 million, so he gave them some money too.
These days, many of his stunts have a philanthropic angle. He has given away money to homeless people, to his subscribers, to users of the popular video site Twitch, and to people he met on the street.
He also likes to spend money on ambitious logistical feats. At one point, he wanted to gift an entire island to the winner of a series of challenges. The winner of that competition is one of his friend. So his team went out, bought an island and refurbished it. Initially, there was no sand, so his employees imported 5,000 pounds of it and created a beach. They also paid someone to build a pier. “Most YouTubers who make a couple grand buy a Lamborghini,” said Reed Duchscher, his manager.
Donaldson employs about 50 people, most of whom specialize in logistics and production. “The videos take months of prep,” Beast said. “A lot of them take four to five days of relentless filming. There’s a reason other people don’t do what I do.” One of his dream videos
On Dec. 19, Beast announced a new venture called “Beast Burger.” He is partnering with more than 300 restaurants and kitchens across the country that will make burgers based on his instructions — a model known as ghost kitchens.
Over the weekend, the MrBeast Burger app soared in popularity. As of the morning of Dec. 21, it was the second most popular free app in the entire iOS store. Beast and Duchscher plan to double their footprint by the end of next year. Customers can order on delivery apps like Postmates or Grubhub.
In June 2020, Donaldson, in collaboration with Brooklyn -based art collective MSCHF, released a one-time multiplayer mobile game titled “Finger on the App” which tasked players to hold a finger to their phone screen in the app, with the last person to take it off winning $25,000 In the end,
four people ended up winning $20,000 each after keeping their finger on the app for over 70 hours.The game was reportedly so successful that a sequel titled “Finger on the App 2” was planned to originally launch in December 2020.
However, the game was postponed to February and then further delayed to March 2021 due to a flood of downloads, causing the game to crash and requiring the game’s developers to upgrade their servers. This time, the game featured a grand prize of $100,000. The game was ultimately won by a 19-year-old man who went under the username Swagbacon123 on Twitter after around 51 hours of competition. The second-place finisher also received a prize of $20,000.
