YouTube’s most celebrated spender Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson recruited the help of 10 people to scratch and scan through $1 million worth of lottery tickets, with a surprise twist to the day.

The YouTuber told his team that he wanted to see if the rewards from the mountains of lotto tickets would break even or exceed the amount of money that they spent on them in the first place.

The amount of tickets was ludicrous; there were so many that a garbage truck was commissioned to transfer all of the tickets so they could start rifling through them.

With his team each set up with ever-flowing stacks of tickets, they started to chip away at the thousands of pages filled with potential winnings that could have reached anywhere above $10,000,000.

The YouTuber had a big operation to sift through $1 million in lottery tickets.

As the collective of excited scanners set off, Mr Beast told them that if they did manage to eclipse $10 million that everyone would get 10 percent of the earnings.

Progressing through the first $20,900 of the pile, their tracker indicated they had only earned $13,707 of their original money back. Though this isn’t a disparity the YouTuber is sweating, the experiment was slowly starting to show a trend.

After going over $300,00 of lottery tickets, the group only made around $224,000, so the ruse was keeping up as Mr Beast was plotting something behind closed doors.

Essentially, the money he is getting from the lottery stubs is funding an island that his crew are going to be fighting over. The ambitious YouTuber revealed that he’s going to stage a ‘Survivor’-type of event featuring his team of 10 helpers as contestants vying for the island.

With the amount of money they were able to collect, he is making the $700,000 island the grand prize for the sudden competition.

Mr Beast has been on sort of a YouTube hiatus working on the “biggest stuff I’ve ever done” and the results are now starting to show.

He’s in the middle of what will be a three-part series, with the next videos showing off the event and ultimately the winner of the island.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
