In a recent tweet, MrBeast revealed that he has been working hard on his upcoming video to commemorate reaching 100 million subscribers. Currently sitting at 98.8 million subs, the YouTube giant will likely reach the goal soon.
Jimmy "MrBeast" blew up on YouTube back in 2017. His videos can be broadly classified into a few types: personal challenges, game shows, and donation videos. Jimmy has mastered the art of making a video go viral with his absurd and shocking titles and ideas, such as a real-life Squid Game show.
Twitter is abuzz after MrBeast announces a 100 million subscribers special video, hinting that it will be the grandest video he has made to date
Jimmy was born in Kansas and currently resides in North Carolina, where Ryan Trahan famously handed over a penny to him after a month-long journey across the US. He joined YouTube back in 2012 but blew up in 2017 after his video about counting to 100,000 went viral.
Since then, he has refined his video skills and become a master of YouTube algorithms, racking up insane views on his videos and becoming a millionaire in the process. He practically pioneered a new donation/challenge genre on YouTube, which has led him to come close to 100 million subscribers.
In a recent tweet, he revealed that his new video to commemorate the occasion would be the biggest and most expensive video he has ever made:
"We’ve been working on our 100 million subscriber special all year and it’s my most expensive and insane video ever! I can’t wait to hit 100 mil and upload this :))"
MrBeast's videos already have insane production value, especially his giveaways and donation videos. Most recently, he created a real-life Willy Wonka factory with huge edible props.
So when he announced that his next video would top everything he had done so far, the entire YouTube community was buzzing with excitement. Many replied to his tweet, congratulating and praising the momentous achievement:
The streamer StoneMountain asked him to bring in PewDiePie, who crossed the 100 million sub mark back in 2019, for a collab:
Some even came up with their own absurd ideas:
MrBeast is just shy of 99 million subs on his main channel at the time of writing. He also has a couple of channels dedicated to philanthropy, gaming shorts, etc. Collectively, they add over 75 million subscribers to his main tally. With roughly a million subs to go, he is as close as ever to becoming the second non-brand channel to cross the 100 million mark on YouTube.
