Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson has returned with another epic hide-and-seek challenge for his buddies — but this time, he turned things up a notch by taking over an entire abandoned theme park.

Mr Beast is hailed as the internet’s philanthropist, known for giving out huge amounts of cash in creative ways with unique challenges.

From forcing his friends to stand in a small circle to taking them on crazy obstacle courses in high-priced luxury cars, Mr Beast has done it all — but nothing tops his latest game of high-stakes hide-and-seek.

YouTube star Mr Beast conscripted ten of his friends for another high-stakes game of hide-and-seek – including YouTube duo Yes Theory.

While the YouTuber has undertaken such a project before, this time, he used an entire run-down theme park for the challenge, which he tasked ten other content creators to hide in for a $70,000 cash prize.

With each contestant boasting their own face cam and walkie-talkies, their game was something hauntingly akin to the Hunger Games — especially when Mr Beast turned up the stakes with a crazy addition.

After tracking down three competitors, Mr Beast announced to the remaining players that he’d placed an alarm in each of their backpacks, which could not be turned off.

This new addition, alongside forcing them out of an entire area of the park, turned an already challenging situation even more desperate as Mr Beast and friend Chris turned the haunting theme park upside down.

That’s not all: Donaldson even made the defeated players vote to close down yet another area of the park and allowed them to help search for the remaining hiders, giving them some sort of revenge on their opposition and upping the stakes even further.

Mr Beast allowed the defeated players to have a chance at revenge by letting them help find the remaining contestants.

After a long stint of looking under old arcade cabinets, behind stage curtains, and even in attics, Mr Beast and crew awarded their victor, having reached a two-hour long stalemate with their final two hiders.

Thomas ended up being the last man standing, taking home the coveted $70k prize due to his stellar hiding skills and closing another chapter of Mr Beast’s most terrifying game of hide-and-seek yet.

Considering the craziness of this game, there’s no telling what he’ll pull for another challenge in the future.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
