Logan Paul has revealed his ambitions to not only become the best YouTuber, but also grow himself into becoming one of the world’s greatest entertainers across all platforms.

Logan Paul has become one of the faces of YouTube. Alongside the likes of Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and David Dobrik, Paul has cemented himself in the history books as one of the most popular content creators of all time.

But, he’s hungry to be more than just one of the best — he wants to be the best. Building upon his current legacy, Logan Paul wants to transcend internet culture to become the greatest entertainers of all time, and he’s got plans set.

“I’ve decided that me as a human, I’m willing to suffer an immense amount to achieve my goal — which is to be the greatest entertainer in the world, because I like to entertain and I want people to forget about their sh*t lives,” he said on the November 29 Impaulsive podcast.

It’s part of a wider journey of self-fulfilment for the YouTuber, who’s life goals are alike to anyone else’s pursuit of happiness. 

“99.9% of people’s goals — their main objective is to just simply be happy,” he said. “If you are happy, you can’t say that this life sucks or was a failure. Maintaining happiness and being happy is the goal of humans.”

Happiness for Logan Paul is more than money and clicks though, and he believes the superficial nature of some people’s goals can sometimes stray them down the wrong path. 

“You see billionaires with all of these things and money and a lot of the time they’ll tell you that it doesn’t fulfil them. Yet meanwhile, you have a family in Ohio making an income of $50,000 collectively in their home and they’re ecstatic just to be alive and live with each other.”

While there’s other dreams he’s looking at pursuing, they all relate back to him and his ability to create content for the masses to lap up. Entertaining takes on many forms, and Logan Paul has professed that he isn’t scared to experiment for the sake of his audience.

“Here’s a list of things I want to do: a professional MMA fight, a feature film, I want to do stand-up comedy, and I want to take over digital again, in a way that we haven’t I’ve got all,” he said. “These [are the] things I want to do, I like to dabble.

“It would be really nice if I could just pull a David Dobrik and focus all of my energy into one thing and become the best vlogger on the planet, but I did that already.”

Logan Paul has taken to the boxing ring, but he still wants to chase his dreams of partaking in an MMA bout.

After conquering YouTube once before, he’s looking at making himself a personality larger than the platform, and he’s taking some time to consider the best way of going about it.

“I want to get strategic and smart with the way and type of content we are producing in the future,” he said.

“I haven’t released a new video on YouTube for the last week and a half intentionally because we are sort of waiting on this appeal and I don’t want to start hopping into commentary YouTube or regular YouTube or vlogs without some sort of strategy.

“We just bought $10,000 worth of mountain bikes — now old Logan would have made a video saying that “we just bought $10,000 worth of mountain bikes,” but like who gives a f*ck. Instead, let’s make it part of a story of this new ranch we just bought as a fantasy playground.”

Droughts of content can usually be the end of a YouTuber’s stretch on the platform, but Logan Paul is taking solace in the fact that he’s already hit the point where he doesn’t need more to sustain himself, and he can direct all of his energy to bettering himself and hitting his goals.

“I don’t feel bad about it, or like I need to, which is cool that I’ve gotten to a place where I’ve established myself. But now let’s load up and swing big in the right way.”

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
