MrBeast is bringing 'the largest game show in history' to Amazon Prime with $5,000,000 prize

MrBeast is bringing 'the largest game show in history' to Amazon Prime with $5,000,000 prize

1,000 contestants will compete for the historic prize pot.

Not content with conquering YouTube, MrBeast is set to front ‘the largest game show in history’ with an eye-watering $5 million prize.

Having been the most subscribed YouTuber since 2022, MrBeast - Jimmy Donaldson to his mum - has started to look beyond the video sharing website.

After bringing his Feastable chocolate bars to the UK in an attempt to replicate the success of Logan Paul and KSI’s Prime drink, Donaldson will now host an Amazon Prime show, which he’s calling ‘the largest game show in history’.

He said in a press release: "My goal is to make the greatest show possible and prove YouTubers and creators can succeed on other platforms."

Hyping the new series up on The Colin and Samir Show, he said Beast Games will be ‘like our normal videos, just 20 times better’.

It’s set to air later this year and will feature a whopping 1,000 contestants competing for a $5 million prize pot.

That just about pips Squid Game: The Challenge’s $4.56 million jackpot to become the largest prize in game show history.

On the subject of Netflix’s real-life Squid Game, MrBeast was very insistent that his game show will be nothing like it.

He told Colin and Samir Beast Games will be like Squid Game: The Challenge ‘on steroids, times a billion’, going on to complain that in some episodes of the Netflix show ‘there would be like 25 minutes of them just in the bunk room and nothing progressed’.

Tell us how you really feel, Jimmy.

Instead, his (presumably more fast-paced) gameshow ‘is a different animal than anything anyone’s ever done’.

That enough hype for you yet?

For anyone curious as to how this will be any different from MrBeast’s YouTube channel, in which he often devises madcap competitions including his very own real-life Squid Game, he says there’s an important reason why he wants to make a show with a streamer.

The prize pot will be a whopping $5 million.

He said: “With the YouTube video people click to watch a video around a title and thumbnail. If you veer too far off they’re just like, ‘OK, I’ll go and watch another video.'

“In a show you’re just kind of along for the ride and you almost like it when it does twists and turns.”

If all that has whet your appetite, Beast Games will stream on Amazon Prime in 240 countries and territories worldwide, although we don’t have an exact release date just yet.
