YouTube collective The NELK Boys have issued an update on their status after being stopped on their travels to Russia. 

The NELK Boys, a Canadian creative group, are well known for their YouTube uploads that include daring pranks and top-level production. Their ‘Full Send’ motto means they are going all-in on a video, meaning it can lead to some surprising and shocking outcomes. 

That was in full display during their long-awaited Spin the Globe challenge, where they found out that they would be going to Russia. However, despite starting their travels, they’ve already run into some problems that could put their adventure in trouble.

On August 9, the NELK team revealed that four members had been pulled aside for questioning while in Germany during their journey to Russia. 

“Kyle, Jesse, 905 and Steve were pulled aside at the security checkpoint while boarding their flight to Russia. Questioning has been going on for over an hour thus far. We are currently in contact with our Visa attorneys hoping to solve this issue immediately,” a statement read on the creative collective’s Twitter.

However, the group had not offered fans an update on their situation until a few hours later when they switched to Instagram.

“Boys, we are all good and free, thank the fucking send gods!” their Instagram story started. Waiting to talk to our lawyer about what we can and can’t say about what happened today trying to board to Russia.”

They continued on: “Right now, we are stuck in fucking Germany. Not sure what the next move is but we’ll see what’s good.”

The NELK Boys’ instagram statement.

As of writing, on August 10, the group are still stuck in Frankfurt, Germany, and have not yet traveled to Russia.

Of course, regardless of what happens, the NELK boys will be able to put on another epic video for their fans – even if they aren’t able to fully send it.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
