YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg reached 91 million subscribers in the midst of his battle with Bollywood label T-Series – but his next subscriber goal may never come to fruition.

While Kjellberg announced a race to 100 million subs against T-Series in early March, the YouTuber has since backpedaled on this goal, appearing to admit defeat in an episode of LWIAY on March 30.

“Let’s get real here,” PewDiePie said of his loss. “T-Series have already passed. Let’s just acknowledge the situation. It’s over, okay? …we ain’t never gonna get to 100.”

While PewDiePie put up a major fight for nearly half a year, T-Series managed to surpass the YouTuber by a wide margin on March 26 – and has stayed on top for nearly four days, as of March 30.

T-Series currently sits at over 107,000 subs above PewDiePie; while the YouTuber has been known to bounce back from major defeats before, it doesn’t look like the YouTuber has another comeback plan in mind, as further hinted at by his statements in March 30’s LWIAY episode.

PewDiePie is falling behind T-Series at a massive rate, with the Bollywood label taking the lead by over 100,000 subscribers as of March 30.

“It feels weird – this is the first LWIAY I’ve recorded where we’re not technically winning,” PewDiePie continued. “Sad. Just sad.”

PewDiePie’s fight against the label saw the involvement of major YouTubers and celebrities alike, with the likes of political commentator Ben Shapiro and Tesla CEO Elon Musk making appearances on Kjellberg’s ‘Meme Review’ show.

Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson likewise made massive contributions to their battle, creating a citywide ad campaign across his hometown and even taking the fight to the 2019 Super Bowl, where he and his squad wore a series of shirts that read, ‘Sub 2 PewDiePie’ on live television.

Even hackers jumped in on the action, infiltrating Chromecasts, Smart TVs, and even printers in an effort to boost PewDiePie’s subscriber count ahead of T-Series.

Despite the efforts of his dedicated fanbase, Kjellberg may have lost his crown for good, even reiterating that he “doesn’t care” about who comes out on top in the end.

Bryce Hall apologizes to Dixie D’Amelio & Noah Beck for stripper prank

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
