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.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
