About Mr. Beast

Jimmy Donaldson, aka MrBeast, had one of the biggest years on all of YouTube, growing by more than 11M subscribers through some of the most viral and best-vlogged moments of the year. Earning a reputation as YouTube’s philanthropist, MrBeast has given away over one million dollars to random strangers, through actions like donating to people’s Twitch accounts, tipping thousands of dollars to pizza delivery people, or handing out $20,000 to people in an ice cream truck. Setting world records along the way, like in his “2,256 Miles In One Uber Ride” video, using the ride share app to travel from North Carolina to LA.
