MrBeast (real name Jimmy Donaldson) is one of the most famous and highest-paid YouTubers on the planet. With 125 million subscribers on YouTube, he’s become a pioneer for creating videos that center on expensive stunts. Currently, he has not one but three YouTube channels – MrBeast, MrBeast Shorts and Beast Reacts. As of 2023. MrBeast has a net worth of $100 million!
The Rise Of MrBeast’s Millions
MrBeast is famous on YouTube for his stunt videos, many of which revolve around giving sizable sums of money to strangers, charities or friends. In order to make his videos, he has to spend millions every money creating new content.
MrBeast’s $100 million fortune might surprise some fans, which is understandable, considering on average he spends $300,000 producing just one video. It’s clear that MrBeast reinvests a lot of money back into his content, which explains his success on the platform.
According to Forbes, MrBeast was the top earner on YouTube, netting an eye-watering $54 million in 2021. He beat out big YouTubers such as Ryan Kaji and Jeffree Star comfortably. Based on this, we can say MrBeast earns over $147,000 per day!
MrBeast In 2022
The MrBeast YouTube channel continues to go from strength to strength, and surpassed the 100 million subscriber milestone in 2022. During the pandemic, his views and earnings skyrocketed as fans were forced to stay home.
With nearly double the amount of subscribers vs last year, MrBeast is in a stronger position to attract more sponsors. His videos can pull in over 50 million views if they go viral, his ‘Squid Game In Real Life’ video alone did over 200 million views! In the past, MrBeast has done advertising deals with Honey, TikTok and Quidd.
Although MrBeast is dominating YouTube, he likes to try out new ventures. In June 2020, he launched “Finger on the App” – a multiplayer endurance game. The idea behind the app is stupidly simple, users around the world have to keep a finger on their phone screen and the last person to take it off wins $25,000. Last year alone, he gave away $3 million in YouTube prizes.
MrBeast launched “MrBeast Burger” in December 2020. He partnered with over 300 US restaurants to launch the business and the app reached top spot in Apple’s app store a day after its release. So far the app has sold over 5 million sandwiches, this guy is an insane marketer!
Like most big-time YouTubers, Jimmy also runs an online clothing store at shopmrbeast.com. The clothing line is his second-biggest income source and sells a range of products such as t-shirts, water bottles, hoodies and more. 40% of his income comes from merchandise and the revenue allows him to make more insane videos!
Whilst details of any new sponsorships are hard to come find, it’s not a stretch to imagine that MrBeast will continue to grow his net worth throughout 2023. It’s not crazy to say he could become the first YouTube billionaire!
