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.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
