Fans were surprised when it was discovered that MrBeast, a renowned YouTuber, paid almost $250,000 for just greeting a fan who also happened to be the son of a millionaire.
According to a RapTV tweet, the big payment was given to the second-most subscribed individual creator for sending a video message saying “Hi” to one of his incredibly affluent followers.
Fans expressed their amusement at this mysterious billionaire’s strange enterprise. Given that he was paid so much for such a minor task, several others stated that they would have done it for far less. “I would’ve said hello for $100,” one Twitter user stated.
MrBeast is no new to being engaged with high-budget films. The YouTuber’s Squid Game replication video, for example, cost more than $3.5 million. He has also created movies in which he awards $500K to winners in challenges and distributes free things in stores.
However, Jimmy has already said that the majority of his earnings are reinvested in his films. Fans anticipate nothing different, given that the 24-year-old is paid a lot of money only to say “Hi.”
For those who are unaware, this is not the first time the YouTuber has been given such exorbitant sums. In fact, during a recent Flagrant podcast interview, the 24-year-old claimed that he turned away a stunning $1 billion in return for ownership of all his channels.
MrBeastPhilanthophy, MrBeastGaming, MrBeastReacts, MrBeastShorts, and MrBeast2 are his additional channels in addition to his main one. His five networks have nearly 180 million subscribers altogether.
He remarked that the offer was appealing, but he did not want to work for someone else’s channel.
MrBeast will also be seen in the next Sidemen Sunday video. The group claimed on its YouTube account that the film with the creator cost more than $500K, making it their most costly video.
Jimmy recently took part in the Sidemen Charity Football Match at Charlton Athletic’s home pitch. The event collected over a million pounds for a nonprofit organization and had a peak attendance of 2.6 million people. With such large crowds, it is reasonable to assume that he was a key component of the event.
