Mr Beast reveals crazy reason he hasn’t been uploading YouTube videos

Mr Beast is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, boasting over 43 million subscribers due to his habit of giving away huge amounts of cash and his insane challenges — one of which caused an unexpected halt to his usual content schedule.

Considering his popularity, it comes as little surprise that Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson’s merchandise is also highly sought-after — but little did he know that fans would be ordering his latest line in droves.

On August 2, Mr Beast challenged the internet with a unique proposal: he would sign every single limited edition T-shirt each time someone bought one, as told in a humorous live stream with his friends.

However, the challenge ended up being much more than he could chew, with the ensuing project taking around twelve days to complete — no thanks to his subsequent tweet that dared the entire internet to buy a shirt.

While the profits are likely outstanding, so was the pain in Mr Beast’s wrist from signing so many shirts, the entire amount of which he revealed in a YouTube video on September 17.

Joking that he’d made a “big mistake,” the YouTuber showed off the massive haul of shirts he was expected to sign, which even included ones that hadn’t yet been printed with the design due to high demand.

That’s not all; Mr Beast even conscripted the services of a professional physical therapist to massage his shoulder as he signed the shirts, as the constant writing started up a cramp in his muscles.

The total number of shirts signed ended up tallying up to 68,337 — an endeavor that took him well over a week to complete.

Considering this fact, it stands to reason that the rest of his content was somewhat delayed, explaining that he needed to sign all the shirts to raise money for his upcoming 40 million subscriber video.

“This was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life,” he said of the project. “…I suffered to make the best content possible for you guys.”

The YouTuber also teased that his massive 40 million subscriber special will be airing in two days, so fans should mark their calendars to avoid missing on the video that cost Mr Beast 12 days of intense shoulder pain.

British fitness guru and social media influencer Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia has completely transformed his home gym — but the cost of the renovations was nothing to sneeze at.

Morsia is one of the fitness community’s biggest internet stars; boasting over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 898,000 followers on Instagram, his honest approach to fitness and crazy physical challenges have earned him as substantial audience.

Of course, it stands to reason that someone so dedicated to working out would have their own home gym (especially in a time where going to the gym could put one at risk) — but for Morsia, it’s more than just another room in his home.

For this influencer, the gym is his office, which he explained in the beginning of his video on the topic. He clarified that much of the equipment in his gym had been provided by his sponsors, and since it “directly contributes” to his salary, he chose only the most top-tier brands — something he claimed the average person does not need to do for their own home gym experience.

That being said, Matt went on to reveal the exact cost of the space, and it’s enough to make your jaw drop to the floor (or at least a fair wince).

As for the building itself, he spent a grand total of £34,000 (or $43,979), which isn’t actually part of his house. Instead, he commissioned the space to be completely “built from scratch” in the back garden — further compounding on its comparison to a true office space.

Combined with his equipment — the most expensive part of which was his £2,790 ($3,608) dual cable pulley — the entire gym ended up costing him £47,999 ($62,073). That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Morsia was quick to inform viewers that much of his equipment is no longer available for purchase due to the current global climate, and that other parts of the space — such as the bumper plates for his squat rack — were built by hand.

All in all, Morsia’s home gym is an impressive project that cost an equally impressive amount of cash, but when it’s your livelihood on the line, no price is too high for a quality workout.
