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.

Mr Beast has announced The Creator Games 2 that will put internet personalities like Charli D’Amelio, Ninja, MKBHD, and more, to the ultimate test of wits where the winner will get $300,000 to giveaway to their fans.

Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” Though it doesn’t look like the winner of yesteryear’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, will be returning to defend his title.

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 matchups game.

There’s going to be a ton of twists and turns for competitors and fans alike to watch out for. The Wheel of Games will have challenges that range from “trivia to geography, spelling bees, and beyond.” Not only that, the fans will be able to vote an eliminated contestant in the late rounds of The Creator Games.

In 2019, the Games was one of the most-viewed YouTube Originals live events bringing in over 662,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 35 million views.
