"Today is MrBeast’s Birthday!" - Jimmy shares his yearly viewership on YouTube

With over-the-top challenges and larger-than-life rewards, Jimmy has cemented himself as one of the most noteworthy creators on YouTube. The experimental nature of his content has netted him millions of views on his videos, and billions on his channel as a whole.

On the occasion of his birthday, the YouTube creator took to X and communicated:

"I think today is MrBeast’s Birthday!"

He followed this post with a list of his viewership per year since he started making videos. He started with only 15,000 views at 12 and didn't gain serious traction until he turned 15 when he gained his first hundred thousand views.

Since then, the creator has exponentially increased his viewer count per year. At 24, the creator gathered 19 billion views. He also garnered a massive 32 billion views within a year after turning 25, which showcases a whopping jump of 13 billion views between the two years.


MrBeast was reported to be parting ways with Night Inc., the management company in charge of handling MrBeast since 2018. It has been rumored that this massive change comes due to Jimmy wanting to attain better control over his business, especially in the context of his ongoing legal battle against Virtual Dining Concepts, which he had partnered with for making his virtual restaurant chain MrBeast Burger.
