Update (July 31 – 9:50 PST): Despite being hyped up as the most difficult riddle the internet has ever seen, Mr Beast’s latest challenge has been solved in just eight hours. There were a total of 26 steps involved that provided six yellow letters throughout. This unique combination could be entered in the final step to claim the grand prize of $100,000. 

“This thing was insanely hard but there were literally Discord groups with hundreds of people working on this,” Mr Beast said once a winner came forward. “The riddle didn’t stand a chance.”

The original story is as follows.

YouTube star and viral philanthropist Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is kicking off yet another insane challenge — this time, tasking competitors with solving the “hardest riddle the internet has ever seen” for a whopping $100k prize.

Mr Beast unveiled his latest challenge on July 29 in a cryptic Tweet, revealing that he’d spent the last 100 days working on a riddle that would stump the entire internet. In fact, he even boasted that players would have to be the “smartest man in the world” to crack the question.

That’s not all; the YouTuber warned those hoping to solve his riddle would have to clear their entire weekend, and clarified that he won’t be able to give players any hints (although he did attempt to “throw them off” by typing out the number 5 in a response).

Now, the day has finally come, and Mr Beast has finally unveiled the mysterious riddle.

What is Mr Beast’s riddle?

Donaldson published the highly-anticipated riddle in YouTube video on July 30, and it’s safe to say that the elaborate scheme has everyone stumped.

Thus far, no one has come out with a correct answer to the ongoing game — although the one lucky enough to solve it will get a hefty $100,000 prize as a reward.

Calling his challenge a “wild rollercoaster” and claiming he’d spent a ton of time into crafting the riddle, Mr Beast’s newest game already has the entire internet on the edges of their seats to see who actually manages to give the right answer.

How can you compete in the challenge?

It seems that, in order to complete the YouTuber’s wild goose chase of a riddle, viewers will need to follow a series of 26 steps laid out in his chaotic July 30 video.

While much of the video appears like complete nonsense at a glance, Mr Beast made one thing clear; fans will need a combination of six yellow letters or numbers found throughout the riddle in order to cash in on the prize, which they will have to send to the influencer and his squad.

The YouTuber also cautioned players against calling any phone numbers found during their quest, instead clarifying that they will need to reach the numbers using an emulator he will provide.

What’s the first step?

Luckily, Mr Beast led fans to the first step of his challenge in another YouTube video, which asks users to follow one working link out of ten other links posted in that video’s description.

Do you think you have what it takes to solve the head-scratching puzzle? Try your luck and test your wits for the chance at scoring a huge cash prize from one of the net’s biggest YouTubers, but be warned — it’s no easy feat.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
