YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson showed off his incredible generosity once again by buying gaming setups for a viewer and his pals after he won an impressive Minecraft build battle. 

Mr Beast has quickly cemented himself as one of the top YouTubers around with his video where shows off incredible generosity to his friends, fellow creators, viewers, and also just random strangers. 

As he’s started playing more and more Minecraft, he’s been giving his viewers the chance to profit from showing off their impressive building skills. 

In Mr Beast’ newest video – Whatever you Build, I’ll pay for – one viewer went above and beyond, bagging himself and his pals some all-new gaming setups.

Mr Beast’s challenges usually go crazy on YouTube.

As you can expect, with Mr Beast giving viewers the chance to build anything they want, there were a few impressive and hilarious builds. Some fans decided to show off their creative side by building new homes and PCs, while others built cars and Pepsi cans. 

One fan even asked for his college tuition to be played, but it was a three PC setup from FireLotus200 that got Mr Beast intrigued. The viewer noted that it wasn’t three PCs and monitors for himself, but also for his friends.

As Mr Beast and his fellow judges gave the impressive build a score of 29/30, FireLotus came out on top but the YouTuber wasn’t finished handing out prizes there.

His fellow judges were also impressed by a build of the Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon LEGO set. So, after another viewer won a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, they also got what they wanted. 

The popular YouTuber is sure to be back with more Minecraft tasks in the future, but what will be up for grabs there, remains to be seen. Will he give out $100,000 for the best Minecraft portrait of himself? The possibilities are pretty endless.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
