YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has been at it again, giving away a house as well as thousands of dollars in other prizes to some of his most loyal subscribers. 

Since exploding in popularity in 2019, Mr Beast has been well renowned on YouTube for videos where he gives away crazy prizes to his friends, fans, and even just random strangers.

No matter what he’s giving away, be it a private island worth $700,000 or just $10,000 in a Minecraft building challenge, each and every one of his videos end up on the Trending tab and rack up millions of views just hours after going live.

Even though most of his recent videos have centered around rewarding his friends and family, he’s managed to change the life of some of his most loyal viewers with an incredible subscriber giveaway.

Mr Beast recently gave away a private island worth almost $1,000,00.

In his newest video, uploaded August 22, Mr Beast got some of his subscribers together and rewarded them without putting each one of them through an ultra-difficult task as he usually does. 

One subscriber was asked to choose between a new house and a Lamborghini – he chose the house. Another was challenged with holding onto a bar for as long as possible, and another just had to show off what Mr Beast videos he had watched recently.

He did have one physically demanding challenge though, tasking one fan with opening a safe. After they did so, they were rewarded with two diamonds and $10,000 cash – meaning he walked away with $25,000.

All in all, Mr Beast gave away a three-bedroom house and close to $135,000 to his subscribers and friends. So, it pays to be a subscriber – literally. 

What he’ll do next remains to be seen, but given that he’s been focusing a lot on Minecraft lately, it’ll probably come through there.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
