Every aspiring Youtuber might learn a thing or two from Youtube star MrBeast, who managed to double his channel subscribers in 2019.
Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is dubbed as Youtube’s challenge extraordinaire. He’s famous (and gone viral countless times) for his videos involving big amount money such as having silly ways to spend it, giving away presents, making it as a prize for challenges and a lot more.
The Youtube star had a big year on the platform when it comes to channel growth. He kicked the year off by giving away a few thousand dollars in each video before the incredible end.
On Christmas Eve, he gave away $1 million dollars through a challenge of who can keep their hand on the money the longest.
The viral challenge video only proves Donaldson is truly one of the biggest Youtube stars of the year, but his actual channel stats can be far more surprising to know.
His first upload of 2020 was titled as “2019 Was The Craziest Year Ever“, where he revealed how he successfully doubled his sub count. In total, he amassed over 15M new followers last year.
It featured a montage of all the gigs and viral video ideas (usually involving giving away a generous amount of money) that made his name a favorite topic of online communities.
Unsurprisingly, it just proves how the Youtube icon managed to double his sub count by never running out of wild ideas and offering fresh new content to his viewers.
His innovative and sometimes ridiculous money challenges are hilarious to watch!
According to a report by SocialBlade, a website that tracks social media stats, MrBeast’s growth is evident.
In January 2019, he began with 13.5M subscribers but he already surpassed 22M at the middle of the year. He also gained an additional 7M sub towards the end of 2019.
If you think this is the end of his hilarious antics, it’s not. The Youtuber vows to kick it up a notch, especially that a new year has just begun.
“If you thought 2019 was crazy, I can’t wait for you to see what we have in 2020!”
Fans are all excited to see what MrBeast and his circle of friends have got in store for them in 2020.
If he’s looking to beat his 2019 YT growth record, he may have to splurge big on more cash, ridiculous challenges, and adrenaline-pumping video content.
