Mr Beast brought back his ever-popular Creator Games, pitting personalities like Charli D’Amelio, KSI, Addison Rae, MKBHD, and more to the ultimate test of wits. With $300,000 on the line for their fans, one duo reigned supreme: the D’Amelio sisters.

Mr Beast is back at it again for another round of his well-received Creator Games, a live event that sees some of the most popular influencers both on and off YouTube compete in a series of challenges to determine who the ultimate winner is.

Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” The winner of last year’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, didn’t return to defend his title however.

This means that there’s going to be a new champion of The Creator Games to crown, though the contestants shouldn’t expect the same format as last year. Instead, Mr Beast is going to change the competition with a “Wheel of Games” that will pick every matchup game.

The D’Amelio sisters beat ZHC to win the Creator Games 2 title

ZHC and the D’Amelio sisters ended up being the two (three, really) biggest brains to make it to the final.

The D’Amelio twins had some help though. They brought two extra brains on board: their parents. While they didn’t take part in the final against ZHC, they were in the background cheering their daughters on.

To make it fairer, Mr Beast made sure that only one D’Amelio could take on ZHC in the trivia final. That high-pressure task fell to the eldest sister, Dixie.

However, she held her composure, getting the closest number on two questions to beat ZHC in the best-of-three Trivia final. They’re going to put that money to good use, giving it back to their fans in need.

“We’re going to do something on our family channel just to give back to the people who really need it,” Dixie said after pulling off the victory for the D’Amelios.

When was Mr Beast’s The Creators Games 2?

The tournament took place on Saturday, October 17, starting at around 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch the VOD in its three hours of glory here.

Who was in The Creator Games 2?

Mr Beast put together an ensemble cast for his second Creator Games, featuring some of the biggest names on YouTube, TikTok, and other online entertainment.

Here was the starting bracket for the competition, which featured some intense first-round matchups that include some huge superstars pitted against each other right away.

Popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan has finally revealed changes to the lighting of his new podcast studio after fans decided they hated it, following his move to Texas.

After moving his entire podcast studio near his new Texas home in early September, Joe Rogan’s followers were quick to criticize him over the “tacky” updates made to the background of his setup.

While most of his fans are used to seeing him in front of the classic red-brick wall with an American flag during his long-form conversations, his latest move saw the addition of some bizarre red lighting patterns instead.

JRE fans criticized Rogan’s studio for its “tacky” red lights in previous episodes.

The UFC commentator’s first few episodes in the new studio were subject to a lot of criticism and many fans immediately called for adjustments to be made to the new camera angles and lighting that were being used.

However, after initially addressing the hate and revealing that they had put the room together on short notice, it seems as if he has taken the feedback on board in his recent episodes, toning down the harsh red lighting that was present in the background of the show. The podcast host has now replaced the bright red light with a blue hue instead.

Since the release of his podcast with fellow comedian Colin Quinn on October 8, fans have noticed a massive improvement in the lighting and have been quite positive about the production changes that Rogan and JRE producer Jamie Vernon have made.

“Lighting is so much better, doesn’t look like you’re in front of a KFC sign” one viewer commented, while other JRE fans echoed similar compliments after the latest changes.

The majority of his viewers claimed that the quality of the episode was “significantly better” but that it could still do with some minor adjustments to bring it up to the usual standard of the popular podcast.

As Rogan has previously explained that his current studio was put together on short notice, it is quite possible that he has even more changes in store over the next few months but we’ll just have to wait and see if any further adjustments are made.
