YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has sensationally broken yet another milestone on the content sharing platform, despite being on vacation the entire time since his last landmark. 

The popular internet personality quietly tied the knot with fiance Marzia Bisognin in August and has been hardly active ever since, only chiming in with a vlog or two on his YouTube channel while enjoying his honeymoon in Bali. 

During that time, however, PewDiePie has gone one better than being the only person to build a YouTube channel with over 100 million subscribers, after quickly hiking up to 101 million. 

PewDiePie, InstagramPewDiePie’s enjoyed incredible success with YouTube subscribers, despite being on vacation.

The jump in subscribers has taken PewDiePie less than a month. In fact, in the last 30 days, from August 10 to September 8, he has gained over 2 million subscribers.

Unfortunately, though, he’s now fallen off the tail of rival channel T-Series – who have 111,000,000 subscribers at the time of writing. 

T-Series’ growth has been even more impressive but considering it’s a full-blown production company vs PewDiePie and his one editor, it’s not exactly a fair fight.

The YouTuber sparked what has been an incredible resurgence of players going back to Minecraft after leading the way with his very own in-game series. 

His collection of videos have continually gone viral, whether it be building up an army of pigs, snowmen, or even tackling the Ender Dragon in an epic encounter, he’s created must-see content on a consistent basis and is reaping the rewards.

Fans of the Swede will be wondering whether or not he will continue the Minecraft journey when he returns to creating YouTube videos, following the honeymoon, but he seems to be doing just fine even when he’s not uploading.

YouTuber Karl Jacobs received a whopping $100,000 from Mr Beast after winning a star studded Among Us game, beating creators like Corpse Husband, PewDiePie, Sykkuno, and Dream to the punch.

Among Us is tense at the best of times, but adding an enormous cash prize to the mix is guaranteed to add an extra layer of frustration to the equally loved and loathed cafeteria meetings.

And who better to shake things up than YouTube’s favorite philanthropist, Mr Beast a.k.a. Jimmy Donaldson. Jimmy is well known for putting friends and fans through bizarre challenges to win huge amounts of money.

Particularly since launching his gaming channel earlier this year, the star has been pitting viewers and often fellow creators against each other in games like Minecraft and Among Us.

Mr Beast has over 10 million subscribers on his gaming channel.

This time, Jimmy hosted a star-studded line up of players for an Among Us tournament, featuring the likes of rising stars Corpse Husband, Dream, and Sykkuno, along with classic fan favorites like PewDiePie and Jacksepticeye. All of them were in with a chance of winning $100,000.

The game was set to only have one imposter, meaning there was nowhere to hide for whoever ended up with the mischievous role.

Sykkuno was imposter the first time round, and even though he was caught in the act of killing someone by Corpse, it actually took a good few rounds for the other players to vote him out. Though as the game ended fairly early, Mr Beast let everyone have one more shot at victory.

Karl was the imposter for the second and final game, and the tension ramped up progressively throughout the game as he managed kill after kill without being voted off.

As the number of players dwindled, the vote offs began to get more dramatic, with Jimmy constantly reminding the crew that there was a huge pot of money on the line.

After a tense final few minutes where it wasn’t clear who would sway the game, eventually Karl was deemed the winner, and was overjoyed to have won the huge $100k prize.

The video had a great response from fans who loved the iconic mix of creators combined with the high stakes prize, and there’s no doubt that more content will be on the way from this team.
