Renowned YouTuber MrBeast, known for his extravagant giveaways, is reaching new heights with his latest endeavor on Amazon’s Prime Video platform. Under his real name, Jimmy Donaldson, he unveiled a collaboration with Prime Video for “Beast Games,” a reality competition series presenting the winner with an unparalleled $5 million cash prize—reportedly setting a record as the largest single payout in television history.

Detailed information about the challenges featured in “Beast Games” is undisclosed. Prime Video has revealed that the show will involve 1,000 contestants vying for the sole $5 million cash prize in a dynamic and carefully crafted format.

MrBeast will assume the positions of host and executive producer for “Beast Games.” Although a premiere date has yet to be revealed, the show will be accessible exclusively on Prime Video worldwide.

In a statement, MrBeast expressed his aim to create the ultimate show and demonstrate that YouTubers and creators can thrive on alternative platforms. He credited Amazon for providing the creative freedom necessary to pursue this endeavor and expressed his desire to make the YouTube community proud.

Regarding the partnership, Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon MGM Studios, said, “MrBeast has garnered global attention across all demographics. We are thrilled to collaborate with MrBeast and his skilled team to introduce his inventive, high-production, and high-stakes concepts to ‘Beast Games,’ offering our worldwide audience an exciting experience.”

Who is Mr beast, AKA Donaldson

Donaldson, at 25, is the most-followed YouTube creator on the platform, commanding a subscriber base of over 245 million on his primary channel. His most-watched video on YouTube, with a tally exceeding 588 million views and still climbing, is his 2021 rendition of “Squid Game,” which recreated elimination challenges from the widely acclaimed Netflix series and bestowed a grand prize of $446,000 upon the champion. Presently based in Greenville, North Carolina, MrBeast accumulated an estimated $82 million in gross earnings over 12 months, from June 2022 to June 2023, as delineated by Forbes—an amount that dwarfs the earnings of any other digital creator, more than doubling their earnings.

Donaldson is known for his successful business ventures like Feastables, a delicious line of chocolate bars and tempting snack items, and his thriving MrBeast Burger restaurant chain. Last year, Donaldson took action against Virtual Dining Concepts, aiming to revamp his agreement with the virtual restaurant company overseeing MrBeast Burger. Donaldson boldly addressed concerns about the quality of burgers served, ensuring his commitment to excellence. In response, virtual Dining Concepts launched a $100 million counter lawsuit, igniting a spirited legal battle. Despite the challenges, Donaldson remains resilient, ready to overcome obstacles and continue his entrepreneurial success journey.

Donaldson’s contributions have brought immense changes through his philanthropic efforts. He co-founded #TeamTrees, a fundraiser supporting the Arbor Day Foundation, which raised nearly $25 million, enabling the planting of over 24 million trees. Similarly, #TeamSeas, benefiting the Ocean Conservancy and the Ocean Cleanup, has raised over $33 million to remove trash from oceans, rivers, and beaches. Donaldson has spread happiness through his Beast Philanthropy organization by providing more than 15 million free meals to those in need. This organization’s global impact is remarkable, with projects including constructing freshwater wells in Cameroon, offering homes to individuals without shelter in Costa Rica, and extending aid to tornado victims in Kentucky.
