100 Thieves Owner Mattew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag will be playing in the QuickenLoans National PGA Pro-AM with professional golfers Rickie Fowler and Paige Spiranac.

Although first making his name known as a professional Call of Duty player, Nadeshot eventually took a step back from the competition in order to pursue content creation full time.

He would later create his own esports organization known as 100 Thieves, which has grown rapidly since it was first announced in 2016 with a collection of different teams in different titles.

The brand eventually brought on some high-profile partners for funding down the line, including Dan Gilbert, the president of the Cleveland Cavaliers and founder of QuickenLoans, which allowed the organization to venture out into different titles.

On June 25th, Nadeshot announced that he will be playing alongside professional golfers Rickie Fowler and Paige Spiranac at the QuickenLoans National PGA Pro-AM golf tournament, along with QuickenLoans President Bob Walters.

Yet, even though Nadeshot is an avid golfer, he is still worried about embarrassing himself in front of a massive crowd.

The tournament is scheduled to take place between June 27th and July 1st, and will feature a collection of professionals from around the golf industry.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
