In the wake of PewDiePie taking his break from making content, the Swedish star’s editor has opened up about why the YouTuber won’t ever be quitting due to being “addicted” to the platform. 

PewDiePie is the most popular content creator on YouTube, having amassed over 102 million subscribers, and was the most watched channel on the platform in 2019.

However, the Swede finally took a break from making content on January 15, after making daily uploads for 10 years. Despite this, his editor claims that the YouTuber won’t be quitting or slowing down once he’s back.

The popular YouTuber first announced he was taking a break on December 14, stating that he was “tired,” and finally took his vacation on January 15. “This year, there’s just been so much piling up that I’m like ‘I should probably just cool down for a bit.’ And then, we’ll come back with 10,000 percent!” he said.

Confirming the Swede’s reason for not making content in part of 2020, PewDiePie’s editor Sive Morten sat down with British news outlet Metro and explained, “‘Everyone needs a break but, with YouTube, having a break is sort of detrimental to your channel. I think it’s worth it for him…and I need a break too!’”

He then went on to state that the YouTube star loves what he does. “He’s unironically addicted to making YouTube videos. The whole thing about “Hey, I enjoy making videos”, he really does enjoy it,” he said.

Sive also commented on Pewds’ consistent work ethic, and was surprised when he didn’t take a break for his honeymoon, after getting married to Marzia in August 2019. “I was expecting him to say “Hey, I’m going to pre-record a hundred videos,'” he said.

The editor then revealed that he doesn’t see his boss ever quitting the platform. “I don’t think he is ever gonna quit, I think he’s really addicted. He can’t get enough of YouTube”.

He also pointed out that “Most YouTubers, once they get views, once they get relevance, they kind of go crazy. A lot of YouTubers kind of go mad” – which is a good argument for the popular entertainer to take a break.

PewDiePie couldn’t have picked a better time to take his much-deserved vacation, given that in 2019 he reached 102 million subscribers, and launched his wildly successful Minecraft series.

It’s still unknown how long the break will be for and when the Swedish star will be back to making content again, however given his professed love for the platform, it will probably be sooner rather than later.

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.
