YouTube’s king of big budget videos has brought another life-changing social experiment to the masses, this time offering passersby the chance at $100,000 in the form of a classic cup game.
While his experiment took place both online and offline, he made major waves for students on a college campus, who got a chance at winning the cash through a guessing game using a series of red solo cups.

Students were made to guess which cup the money was hiding beneath. Winning amounts started at $1,000, after which the students could go double or nothing – up to a whopping $100,000.
Both students and faculty participated in the challenge, with many students choosing to opt out once they had guessed correctly the first time.
MrBeast then switched the guessing game to a game of beer pong, lowering the amount to $100 per cup – then changed the stakes even further by upping the second winning cup to $1,000. A line of students formed for a chance at earning the cash, collectively cheering and groaning at their peers’ successes and failures.[ad name=”article3″]
The kids even called for an encore after MrBeast’s crew had called for an end to the festivities, with the final winner getting a massive round of applause (and a hug) at his $1,000 victory.
MrBeast himself even took part in the game in his studio – but he wasn’t so lucky.
This latest video follows MrBeast’s citywide ad campaign to help YouTuber PewDiePie beat out the quickly-approaching Bollywood label T-Series, which saw a major rise in subscribers for the ‘king of YouTube.’
