Popular content creator Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson revealed that he has spent over $100,000 on YouTube videos that he has decided against posting on his channel.

Mr Beast has built a massive following of over 30 million subscribers on his YouTube channel for his generosity, often giving away thousands of dollars to random strangers in his videos.

The YouTube star invests quite a lot of money into creating more content for his fans and on February 15, he shared that some of the more pricey videos he had created never even made it to his channel.

The YouTube star revealed that he had scrapped some of his potential uploads.

MrBeast is also known for coming up with some bizarre challenge videos, such as his recent Lamborghini giveaway, and revealed that some of the ones he had already filmed in 2020 did not meet his quality standards.

“We’ve already scrapped 3 big videos so far this year,” MrBeast shockingly revealed, “I only want to upload the best of the best for you guys!”

The popular YouTuber also shared that it had cost him $100,000 to produce the three unused videos, “I don’t care if we spent $100k and a week filming, if it isn’t perfect I don’t upload it.”

Many fans were shocked at the massive figure and fellow content creator WILDCAT reached out to MrBeast, jokingly offering him $20 to upload them on his own channel.

MrBeast hilariously agreed and began “selling” them at a low price, revealing that he spent a large portion of the cash traveling to the seven wonders of the world to film one of challenge video, roughly $85,000.

“Sure. You can have the video where we visited all the 7 wonders of the world. At least I’ll get $20 of the $85,000 back lol,” he jokingly offered.

Although it is unlikely that MrBeast would actually giveaway his videos for $20, many of his fans called for him to upload the “scrapped” videos on a second channel so that his hard work wouldn’t go to waste.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
