Top YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is known for giving away insane amounts of cash and orchestrating over-the-top challenges — two concepts he’s combining for a unique, star-studded charity event to aid the current global crisis.
In an April 22 Tweet, Mr Beast revealed that he’d be hosting a live streamed rock-paper-scissors tournament in league with YouTube Originals, awarding a massive grand prize of $250k for charity.
The YouTuber also hinted that his tournament would include some of the platform’s most popular content creators — and now, a sneak peek of lineup has officially been revealed.
