Top YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has pulled another ace from up his sleeve by having MrBeast host Meme Review in a bid to fend off T-Series in their ongoing subscriber battle. 

Mr Beast is an extraordinarily popular content creator in his own right, with over 15.5 million subscribers as of March 5, and PewDiePie will be hoping that his guest appearance will help maintain his lead over T-Series as the most subscribed to YouTube channel.

The YouTuber hit over 88 million subscribers on March 4 and, at the time of writing, live sub counts show a that he has a lead of 44,000 over the Indian Production Company. However, T-Series is still very much in the hunt. 

PewDiePie, YouTubeElon Musk was the first featured host on PewDiePie’s meme review show.

The Swede made the shock announcement during a video on March 5, where he revealed MrBeast would be in charge of the Meme Review segment. 

This week’s host is just the latest popular face to have hosted an episode of the popular YouTube series, after Tesla’s founder Elon Musk was revealed as a guest host on February 22.

Despite admitting that he’s running out of ideas to increase his sub count, Pewds has managed to use these shock appearances to move further away from T-Series – who were just 9,000 subs away from him before Musk came in to help. 

Even after Musk’s episode, T-Series continued to gain, and the gap fell as low as 1,400 at one point. Thankfully, MrBeast’s appearance has given him a much needed boost, and the lead is now at 44,000, as of March 6.

Whether or not the YouTube king will keep up the pace and continue to distance himself from his closest challenger remains to be seen, but these new hosts of Meme Review certainly seem to be helping him a lot.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
