YouTube sensation MrBeast has given fans a taste of what to expect once he reaches 100 million subscribers.
The 23-year-old, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, has amassed quite the following on YouTube over the years, with his subscriber count currently sitting at 91.5 million.
Over the past year, the video creator has garnered support for his massive giveaways, which sees him regularly handing out hundreds of thousands of dollars.
He even recreated his very own version of Squid Game, with more than $1.5 million in prizes up for grabs among the 456 lucky contestants.
The YouTuber has now revealed outrageous plans to commemorate hitting 100 million subscribers, which people suspect will happen soon.
If we hit 100 million subscribers I want to grab 100 random subscribers, put them on a giant island, and have them battle for it somehow lol— MrBeast (@MrBeast) July 11, 2021
In a recent tweet, he wrote: “If we hit 100 million subscribers I want to grab 100 random subscribers, put them on a giant island, and have them battle for it somehow lol."
We can’t be sure exactly what this entails, but judging by the calibre of his videos up until now, it promises to be huge.
MrBeast’s Twitter followers shared their thoughts on the prospect of him hitting 100 million subscribers, as one said: “You have literally changed YouTube man, this couldn’t come sooner.”
Another wrote: “Love to see it, you’re such an inspiraton – no one is more deserving.”
A third added: “PewDiePie could not have found a better successor.”
PewDiePie is the only other individual creator to reach 100 million subscribers on YouTube.
The creator primarily focused on gaming videos, and managed to hit the huge milestone back in 2019.
In January, it was announced that MrBeast has topped the platform’s rich list for last year with reported earnings of $54 million (£39.5 million) in 2021.
According to Forbes, who compiled the list, MrBeast’s haul from 2021 is the most that any creator on YouTube has ever made.
Of course, amassing such a large audience will always invite critics.
And MrBeast is no stranger to the haters, as he was recently accused of giving away fake money during his video challenges.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted that in one video, 'motion picture' was labelled on the bills rather than the 'United States of America' tag that should have been in its place.
However, the 23-year-old American quickly clarified the issue and informed his viewers that there was a reason for the discrepancy.
He said he did it for security reasons, rather than handing over the cash on camera, the YouTuber acknowledged it was a lot safer to write them a cheque instead.
