YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson splashed the cash once again in his October 31 video, spending $100,000 on lottery tickets to find out how much he would make from his investment in prize money.

Mr Beast is well-known for taking on crazy challenges, and grabbed his friends Chris and Chandler to take part in his latest experiment, which saw him spend $100,000 on lottery tickets.

The tickets were split in half between Chris and Chandler, with whoever won the most money from their share of the tickets walking away with the amount they won. While the boys did win money, unsurprisingly, it wasn’t as successful as either of them had hoped.

YouTube: Mr BeastMr Beast gave Chandler and Chris $50,000 in tickets each.

The pair sat down in different rooms with screens behind them showing their totals, and despite some antics from Mr Beast to try and give Chris some bad luck, including making him scan his tickets under a ladder and putting up drawings of black cats, he romped to victory over a dejected Chandler.

In the end, Chris won a total of $35,630 from his share of the tickets, beating Chandler by $5,000, who had only managed to win $30,650, leaving Chris to take home his winnings, despite the overall loss.

From Mr Beast’s $100,000 tickets, the pair won a combined $66,000 from the scratch-off lottery tickets, meaning the American actually lost money in the end, with $34,000 going down the drain in losing tickets.

Even though he won, Chris graciously handed off a handful of his winning tickets to Chandler, meaning neither man left empty-handed.

It’s not just his friends who are receiving money from the 21-year-old, as Mr Beast is currently raising money to plant 20 million trees in an effort to make a difference in the fight against climate change.

His drive so far has been a big success, with Elon Musk, Felix ‘pewdiepie’ Kjellberg, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey all donating to the cause, with the drive currently sitting at 11 million trees planted on Friday, November 1.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
