Popular challenge creator Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson’s ‘secret’ brother revealed himself on August 28, when he unveiled his YouTube channel in a hilarious video that has fans seeing double.

After being teased previously on multiple occasions, MrBeast’s older brother CJ has finally joined YouTube, and has made his debut with the aptly named channel ‘MrBro’. 

Proving that the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree, his debut video cleverly copies and satirizes the popular YouTuber’s challenge videos – as a second rate knock off.

MrBeast’s older brother joked that he is ‘unknown’, although he has been featured in some of his younger brother’s videos in the past. And the popular YouTube star has actually teased his sibling joining the video-sharing platform previously.  

On March 17, MrBeast asked his fans on Twitter if his older brother should make a YouTube channel. And after getting a great reception, he announced on his social media on August 25 that CJ was launching his channel.

“My brother launches his channel next week! He has some massive videos coming up and i’m very proud of him. Go Subscribe! (he is going to be dropping some bangers)” MrBeast tweeted.

Hilariously, MrBro’s first video is a compilation of him re-creating many of his younger brothers iconic challenge videos, except with the twist that he’s poor, so they are cheap knock offs. “Unfortunately I’m poor, so I’ve decided to a dumbed down version of my brother’s videos,” he said. 

CJ then showed clips from his brother’s videos and then ‘his version’ of them which are lacking. Take for instance MrBeast’s iconic challenge where his last friend to take their hand off the house actually won it. In MrBro’s rendition, the same friends compete, but this time for a tiny Lego house.

His Tesla challenge where the last one to leave got to keep the luxury car is re-created with his friends fighting over a children’s mini toy car, and cramming themselves to technically fit in it.  CJ even pokes fun of his younger brother’s ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ campaign, as all he could afford was to dress up in a costume and wave a sign on the side of the road.

MrBro went to great detail to parody his brother, even down to his YouTube channel’s header image. MrBeast reads “subscribe with notifications on, or I will take all your cookies”. But his channel has the same image except it says “Subscribe with notifications on, or you’ll have bad luck for 6.9 years”. 

The video wrapped up with a heartwarming moment when MrBro reminisced about his younger  brother first starting out. “I remember when Jimmy was 14 years old in his room, editing his videos super late at night of Minecraft. Just to post it and maybe get 100, 200 views. But I remember how proud he was and how hard he worked,” he said.

Despite only just launching, MrBro’s account already has over 86k subscribers as of the time of writing this article, showing that his new career as a YouTuber is off to a good start.

Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
