YouTube star Mr Beast is known for his insane viral videos, but his latest project might be his most expensive one yet, thanks to some seriously high-priced luxury food.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, boasting over 31 million subscribers due to his mind-blowing cash giveaways and over-the-top challenges for his good-humored friend group.

While the YouTuber has given out millions in cash before, his highly-anticipated February 29 upload saw the star and his buddies take on a taste test fit for kings, trying out high-priced food cited in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Mr Beast and crew tried luxury food items in his latest video – even a pizza worth over $70,000.

Mr Beast and crew began their journey with easily affordable eats like a $1 slice of pizza and $6 burger before trying out their first luxury meal of the day — a plate of $64 wings covered in 24 karat gold leaf.

That’s not all: the squad even sucked down a $124 milkshake, which crewmember Chandler described as tasting like a “silk cloud.” Containing Tahitian Vanilla ice cream and 23 karat edible gold, it comes as little surprise that this luxury treat won their favor — but that wasn’t the end of their food journey, by far.

The crew even invited vlogging star David Dobrik and the “vlog squad” to taste test a $2,000 steak, which the YouTuber jokingly claimed was like “slicing into a baby.”

“It doesn’t taste like steak,” Dobrik mused, going on to rate the meal a solid 9 out of 10 stars for its luxury quality.

While Dobrik had to leave to film another project, Mr Beast and his friends continued their stint with $3,000 pork, $4,000 Tomahawk steak, and even $5,000 fish tacos before testing their behemoth final meal — a pizza worth $70,000.

Complete with an ounce of gold leaf covering its crust, $4,000 worth of truffle mushrooms, and $16,000 of albino caviar, the pie was truly a marvel to behold and left the squad floored by its “marvelous” taste.

Of course, Mr Beast didn’t let any of the expensive food go to waste; he explained that he’d donated their leftovers to kitchen staff or other restaurant-goers, and even donated a whopping $20,000 to food banks, totaling their entire dining venture at over $120,000.

xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
