Why Did Mr Beast Start YouTube? What Was His Motivation?

You’ve probably heard about Jimmy Donaldson, he is the popular MrBeast. The young man is now the fifth YouTuber to cross 100 million subscribers on the YouTube platform.

MrBeast started his YouTube channel in the year 2012, reached the milestone on July 28, 2022, and became the highest subscribed individual after PewDiePie.

But the big question now is, what inspired him to start a YouTube channel? Read through to find out.

What Motivated MrBeast to Begin his YouTube Journey?

MrBeast began his YouTube journey in 2012 when he was around the age of 14. at first, his channel was called MrBeast6000. Then, he would upload gaming content including Minecraft, Pokemon Online, Black Ops 2, and Battle Pirates and he just wanted to entertain people.

He also made other content for his channel and in his first series, he discussed how much popular YouTubers earned, starting with PewDiePie.

It took Donaldson close to three years to earn 2000 subscribers on his channel. During this time, his channel branched away from gaming content and started featuring various topics.

MrBeast Cut Ties With His Food Delivery Partner

MrBeast has initiated legal proceedings against Virtual Dining Concepts – the enterprise accountable for delivering his branded food product, ‘MrBeast Burgers’ globally.

Ever since these burgers were unveiled in 2020, numerous concerns about their substandard quality have emerged. Customers reported instances of partially cooked meat and some even scorned its taste as “distasteful” and possibly “the most dreadful burger they ever tasted,” according to Bloomberg’s report.

The cooperation with food delivery services for ‘MrBeast Burger’ aimed at conjuring up a synthesis of burgers and fries into households nationwide via so-called “ghost kitchens,” available on various takeaway apps or directly through the ‘MrBeast Burger’ website.

Final Thought

MrBeast’s channel was propelled towards success during the PewDiePie vs. T-Series drama.

This was back in the year 2018 when PewDiePie realized how an Indian music label managed to chase him up so fast. He voiced his concerns to his fans and MrBeast came out as one of his greatest and most stubborn fans.

In October 2018, Donaldson posted a YouTube video, titled I Bought Every Billboard in my City to do this.
