MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson) | Is He the Richest YouTube Star?

Where does all that money come from? What’s his net worth? Why is he so rich? These questions come as no surprise to Jimmy ‘MrBeast‘ Donaldson.  The YouTube sensation is known for giving away millions of dollars to strangers and fellow YouTubers(like Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins and Michael ‘Shroud‘ Grzesiek), is immune to such queries. However, on popular demand, the online-philanthropist made a video explaining how he’s able to do what he does.

How does MrBeast make his Millions?

Most of us know now that Jimmy is involved in paid-partnerships. That is where most of his finances come from. MrBeast also relies on going viral over the internet, which mostly includes his YouTube channel and Google search. The more viral his content gets, the more brand endorsements he banks-in and ultimately the bigger his AdSense earnings get.

MrBeast gives away just about anything to just about anyone. From homeless people to known social-media and Twitch streamers like Ninja, almost everyone is at the receiving end.

In his video MrBeast shares that giving away money to the homeless, makes him whole. The sense of completion is what drives him to help others.

Donaldson noticed something else too. The bigger and more flashy his ways of donating became the viral his videos went. As a result of his extravagant methods, MrBeast’s channel grew to a whopping 26 million subscriber count in no time. His videos get an average of 10 million views with in a week. The outcome, as MrBeast puts it, is an even bigger paycheck by Google and other sponsors.

Talking about his big donations, MrBeast confesses:

If I don’t give it to you, I don’t have a viral video.

His acts make some people ask if he is the richest Youtuber? but in reality he is not (he is very rich though). As a matter of fact, he didn’t even make it to the top 10 richest Youtubers of 2019 list.
