YouTube star Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson continued to spread his wealth in his latest video, offering $10,000 to strangers if they would eat a Ghost Pepper and even creating his own game show.

MrBeast is well-known for the insane sums of money he offers people to take part in his crazy challenges, or even on occasions where he is just feeling generous.

The YouTuber’s incredible gestures have lead to him collaborating with some of the platform’s biggest stars, such as hosting PewDiePie’s Meme Review and hosting an IRL YouTube Battle Royale.

MrBeast / YouTubeMrBeast hosted the YouTuber Battle Royale which had a prize pool of $200,000.

The 21-year-old was creating challenges for the general public once again, handing out $10,000 for simply eating what seemed to be ghost chilli peppers.

Many of the participants found themselves struggling to ingest the pepper initially, scared of the potential agony that it would bring them. After taking a bite and chewing for a moment, it became clear that it wasn’t a ghost pepper after all, much to their relief,  and were delighted to hear that they would still receive the $10,000 prize as a reward for their bravery.

“Yeah so those weren’t real, normally YouTubers would make them eat real ghost peppers but we don’t like torturing people.”

MrBeast continued to go around offering people more money to take part in his challenges, even inviting an audience to his custom-made game show which was setup with a wheel of tasks and cash prizes which he referred to as “Wheel of Beast.”

The contestants faced a wide variety of challenges ranging from ringing ex girlfriends in front of the audience and playing games of “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” to a more extreme challenge in squeezing lemon juice in their eyes.

As with many of MrBeast’s videos, his latest offering has already reached over 10 million views in just a couple of days, with his audience eager to see what he will pull off next.

The official TEKKEN Twitter account has responded after fighting game fans started comparing a legendary UFC KO that went viral over the weekend to a move from the franchise.

On Saturday, October 10, UFC Middleweight sensation Joaquin Buckley scored one of the most outrageous knockouts in history against his opponent, Impa Kasanganay.

During the second round of the fight, Kasanganay caught Buckley’s foot as he attempted a body kick. However, the fighter was quick to improvise and turned his precarious position to his advantage by firing off a 360-degree spin kick to his adversary’s jaw, resulting in a brilliant KO.

The knockout went viral both in and out of the MMA world, with many folks commenting on the extraordinary feat – one group in particular being fighting game fans.

In a tweet by user ‘high_light,’ a video of the knockout plays, and is then followed by a clip of TEKKEN’s Lee Chaolan performing the Mist Trap Throw.

“Buckley landed literal TEKKEN sh*t last night,” the account captioned the video.

After the video got some attention on Twitter, even the official TEKKEN account took note and quote-tweeted the video with its own amusing caption. “*clears throat* 𝙆.𝙊,” they said, further spreading the already-viral moment.

The Mist Trap Throw has proven to be a difficult move to perform in-game, with many fighting game blogs and videos providing tutorials for players. However, thanks to the UFC, both the move and Lee Chaolan may be getting a bit of a boost in popularity.

The only thing crazier would be a UFC fighter literally pulling off a Hadouken from Street Fighter in the octagon.

Nonetheless, we can’t wait to see what other crazy moves Joaquin Buckley has in his arsenal, and if he can bring them to the table the next time he squares off against an opponent.
