Mr Beast’s brand new GTA V challenge over on his gaming channel ended with an embarrassing punishment for the loser, after they installed the chaos mod and competed to see who could make the most money in the allotted time.

Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson is well known on YouTube for his philanthropic content, where he gives out enormous prizes to his friends and fans for participating in increasingly bizarre contests.

Most recently he issued a challenge to a handful of small YouTubers to keep hold of his diamond play button for as long as they could manage, with the promise to send over droves of subscribers to their channel. The winner, Zealous, went from just under 50,000 subscribers to over 1.5 million thanks to the challenge.

Mr Beast’s challenges usually go crazy on YouTube.

But to switch things up, instead of his friends fighting for a grand cash prize or a whole island, this time around they were fighting to avoid a humiliating punishment; standing on the side of the road in a hotdog costume with a suggestive sign.

Jimmy had installed a GTA V Chaos mod onto all of their computers. Each time the blue bar at the top of the screen finished loading, a random and brilliantly chaotic event would occur and make all the player’s lives a lot harder. The person with the least amount of money once the 30 minutes is up, would be declared the loser.

Some of the crazy chaotic events include all civilians getting out of their cars and chasing after one player all at once, a dizzying strobe effect, and a minimum speed that causes the car the blow up if the car doesn’t meet it.

At one point Jimmy was randomly dropped a quarter of a million dollars, placing him firmly above the others in the competition. He was even given the ability to turn everything he touched into gold.

On the flip side, Chandler ended up with “the worst luck,” and was forced to walk in slow motion, got shot by an alien, and started beating people up uncontrollably.

Unsurprisingly, it was Chandler who ended up losing with a grand total of $194, so he put on the embarrassing hotdog costume and off they went to a random road, where he was made to stand there for ten minutes holding a sign that said “I suck hotdogs.”

While the clip was sped up for the viewers, it was a long ten minutes for Chandler who tried to keep his spirits up despite the droves of cars going by and watching.

PewDiePie explains why he was “wrong” about Avatar: The Last Airbender

After months of fans begging, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg finally caved in and watched hit Nickelodeon show, Avatar: The Last Airbender. The popular YouTuber admitted he was wrong for thinking the animation was going to be “childish.”

Despite releasing in 2005, The Last Airbender has taken the world by storm in 2020 after Netflix added it to its service back in April. Viewers have fallen in love with its epic story about a monk named Aang who can control the elements of water, earth, air, and fire.

Now, you can add YouTube’s biggest content creator, PewDiePie, to the long list of fans of the show. During his October 26 upload, the Swede revealed his thoughts on Avatar after fans had constantly asked him to react to the animation over the last year. The star admitted he was “wrong” for pre-judging it.

The YouTuber gave his review of The Last Airbender after reacting to adorable Avatar fanart a Redditor made of his wife, Marzia. The user re-imagined the 31-year-old’s spouse as waterbender Katara from the popular Nickelodeon show.

“I just finished Season 2! I know everyone was crazy about me watching Avatar, and it was so annoying,” Kjellberg said. Viewers had been making memes for months and begging with the entertainer to jump into the hit animation.

While Pewds called the first few episodes “childish”, he ended up loving the series as it went on. “It’s so childish in the first episodes, but it gets so good! It gets REALLY good! So you were right, and I am willing to admit I was wrong. Guys, I made a mistake. I pre-judged Avatar and it was actually great,” he continued.

Pewds actually watched Avatar’s first episode, The Boy in the Iceberg, with viewers during an August YouTube livestream, although the content creator didn’t seem too impressed with it at the time.

Fans have been pleading with him for the last year to give the show a chance. Over on the r/pewdiepiesubmissions subreddit, users would often create Avatar-themed memes, such as ‘animesh_sensei‘ who re-created the famous intro with PewDiePie.

It looks like fans of both Avatar and PewDiePie can finally rest easy, as the YouTuber seems to be loving the series. Kjellberg’s take aligns with many viewers’, who feel the story starts off as a kids show before quickly becoming a mature epic.

The Last Airbender can be watched in its entirety on Netflix right now. The streaming platform also added the animation’s spinoff, The Legend of Korra. The sequel takes place 100 years after Aang, and follows his successor.
