YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has revealed the details behind his ‘final’ $1,000,000 challenge that will pit four “champions” against each other in a supreme battle of wits.

MrBeast has made his name on YouTube for making videos where he challenges his friends, strangers, and others to do something in order to win some huge slices of cash – or he just gives it away anyway.

In the past, he’s challenged his friends to continuously ride rollercoasters, sent them diving through dumpsters, while also waiting hours to give away a few thousand dollars after barely bumping into a car. Yet, he’s taking things up a notch ahead of the holiday period.

MrBeast, YouTubeMrBeast has given away life-changing amounts of money in his YouTube videos.

On December 16, the popular content creator revealed that he has concocted a ‘final’ $1,000,000 challenge that may seem pretty simple on the outset but will undoubtedly be filled with hilarious and tense moments. 

In his teaser, Donaldson noted that he has four competitors who have seemingly been training for the winner takes all task. In the challenge, the four strangers will have to keep their hands firmly locked to a glass case that is filled to the brim with the cash that they hope to win. 

“I don’t care if it takes a day, week, a month, or a year,” says MrBeast before the close of the trailer, “the last one of you to remove your hand off this million dollars keeps it.”

Of course, as the YouTuber heads off-screen, the teaser draws to a close and reveals that fans can settle down to watch the video on Thursday, December 19th at 4pm EST/9PM GMT/1PM PST.

What shenanigans lie ahead remain to be seen but with the huge sum of money on the line, Mr Beast and his pals will surely have some dastardly plans in mind to make it one of, if not the best, videos he’s ever been a part of.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
