Mr Beast is at it again – the hugely popular YouTuber giving out large sums of money and a host of expensive items in his most recent video. But as always, he throws in a catch to raise the stakes.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has firmly cemented his place as among the most entertaining philanthropists on YouTube. At only 22 years old he boasts a huge and dedicated subscriber base of almost 44 million.

As his channel grew he was able to facilitate even more colossal prizes, recently going as far as to purchase a $700,000 island that he had friends and fans compete to win. His crazy ideas combined with his kindness have made him a smash hit on the video-sharing platform.

In August he did a similar video where he gave fans ultimatums between high-value items, with one subscriber even having to choose between a Lamborghini and a new house. He also put his subscribers to different challenges, one including opening a safe to obtain their diamond and cash reward.

Mr Beast has made no secret of his growing wealth, but gifts it generously.

This time Jimmy set out to challenge and reward his loyal subscribers all over again, but turned up the notch even higher. He kicked off the video with a bang by asking somebody whether they would rather have a $38,000 dollar diamond or a cheque with an unknown amount of money.

The fan took the diamond to be safe, only to find out that he’d missed out on a further $62,000. Still, he was delighted with the ring as $38,000 is certainly not something to scoff at.

From then on, every challenge Jimmy threw at the participants was varying levels of insane. People were hacking at ice with a pickaxe, stacking solo cups on the ground, and guessing how many jellybeans there are in a jar with one million dollars at stake (naturally a near-impossible task.)

In a super sweet turn of events, Jimmy challenged one couple to get the same answers to three questions about their love life correct with a sizey prize pool at stake. The final question was “will you marry me?” and the pair left newly engaged and $15,000 richer.

The best thing about Mr Beasts’s content is knowing that the next huge act of generosity will be right around the corner, so subscribers will be waiting in hope that next time they’ll have a shot at winning something.


NELK Boys trolled Khabib and got Dana White drunk ahead of UFC 254

The NELK Boys were invited to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi ahead of UFC 254 and it didn’t take long before they had trolled Pay Per View headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov along with UFC President Dana White.

The NELK Boys are known for their antics so Dana White was well aware of what he was getting into by inviting them to Fight Island. Abu Dhabi served as host to a huge slate of UFC events throughout the course of September and October, closing out the latest stint with UFC 254.

The October 24 PPV made waves due to undefeated Nurmagomedov’s shock retirement after his 29th consecutive win. However, the NELK Boys made waves in their own way with a brand-new video.

Up to their usual antics, the crew played pranks on each other while mixing it up with UFC fighters. Outside of their shoey with Aussie heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, the NELK Boys trolled The Eagle and even got Dana White drunk.

In a rare interaction with Khabib prior to what would be his final fight, they pranked him by asking for oddly specific MMA advice. “What is the most important aspect of fighting for any beginner fighter to focus on?” Kyle Forgeard asked.

Before Khabib could even answer, the plot thickened. Forgeard joked that the reason behind his interest in MMA is to fight the BMF Champ Jorge Masvidal after he slept with his girlfriend. “How old are you?” Khabib responded, going along with the joke. 

Realizing that he’s too old to start training, he had another solution in mind. “I think you have to buy [a] dog.” With a dog by his side, that might be Forgeard’s only chance, according to Khabib.

Next on the itinerary was to get the UFC President completely wasted. While they downed a few shots at the very beginning of the day, the real party came later that night. “I’ve got weigh-ins at 11 AM tomorrow,” White joked before taking another shot.

“Our goal is for Dana to not make it to the weigh-ins,” Forgeard said. Ultimately, that didn’t quite come to fruition but it’s clear they got him rather drunk. “We did like eight or 12 [shots] right in a row.”

The weigh-ins went off without a hitch and so too did the PPV event the following day. It was a short-lived trip for the NELK Boys on Fight Island, though it was one that proved all too valuable for some content.

This particular video ended with a teaser of what’s to come for the content creating crew too; it appears as though a call with the United States President is in store, courtesy of Dana White.
