Five people including MrBeast and the rest of the crew, consisting of cameramans, editors, neighbours and other friends and family are viewed as affiliates. But, the collective name is “Beast Gang”, though it is rarely mentioned. Mr.Beast’s videos often consist of large scale stunts and challenges, even some of them involving money.

To handle such a huge operation, Jimmy employs a legion of writers and editors to work with him, among others. In the words of Chris, the production of a video is too huge for them to rush an idea, thus, they take a lot of effort and time to think it through and then create a video.

Chris added, “if we pull the trigger on a video and we start moving on it, some of our videos can cost upwards of $60,000 to film and if you scrap a $50,000 to $60,000 video, that’s a big loss".

However, the gang is pretty well known for their philanthropic activities; Team Trees Fundraiser raised $20 million in a span of two months, for Arbor Day Foundation, which plants a tree for every dollar donated. Such an act brought regard to Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey, along with PewDiePie and Jeffree Star.
