In his latest high stakes video over on his newer gaming channel, Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson challenged his friends to a game of Fall Guys, the winner looking to take away a huge sum of $20,000.

On his main channel, Mr Beast has made a name for himself by creating videos that usually involve extremely large sums of money, with a crazy challenge to accompany it.

Earlier in August he bought a $700,000 dollar island, and had a team of volunteers compete to see who could stay on the island the longest, the ultimate prize being the island itself.

Mr Beast bought his private island as a part of three part video series.

Aside from the craziness, he is also well known for being generous when it comes to his wealth and uses it to help out those in need, whether that be his close friends, or total strangers.

In this video, he and his friends embark on a high stakes challenge, playing the immensely popular battle royale game, Fall Guys. The game has been so popular that the player demand well exceeded the developer’s server capacity.

Each playing to win the money for their own individual goal, Jimmy, Carl, and Chris set off on their challenge to qualify each round to get closer to the jackpot.

The first time around, Jimmy ended up getting eliminated only a few rounds in, when he took his friend’s advice to “not spam jump” a little too literally and got swept away by a rolling log.

The other two followed not long after when Chris got stuck on a barrier and fell off the platform, and Carl got knocked away in a Jump Showdown.

In attempt number two, Jimmy got eliminated first once again, and another round of Jump Showdown saw the players whittled down to just Carl and Chris. Eventually, Chris was eliminated and Carl won the $20,000 to put towards his sister’s wedding.

With the crazy content amping up over on Mr Beast Gaming, fans eagerly await his next high stakes video game challenge.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
