Famous PeopleThe MrBeast YouTube channel officially has the most subscribers for a single user on the video site. In total, more than 112 million people have subscribed to the channel of Jimmy Donaldson (24), the American behind MrBeast. The old record of Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie (33) of 111 million subscribers, which was about ten years old, has been broken, according to ‘BBC’.
Donaldson has been posting videos on his YouTube channel since 2012, when he was just 13 years old. In 2017, he went viral when he counted aloud from 1 to 100,000 in a video, an almost 24-hour video and has now reached 26 million views. After that, the American became more and more popular. He has specialized in recent years in expensive stunts, for which large (money) prizes are usually awarded to viewers. In his latest video, for example, he sets up a competition in which a few YouTubers can win a private jet by touching the plane for as long as possible.

Donaldson, who recently started dating South African influencer Thea Boysen, doesn’t just donate money on crazy stunts: He also loves to do volunteer work. He raised 24 million dollars with which twenty million trees could be planted all over the world. Note: PewDiePie’s Felix Kjellberg, as of yesterday the most subscribed YouTuber in ten years, donated nearly $70,000 to this.
However, MrBeast doesn’t have the channel with the most followers on the platform, ranking fourth on that list. The absolute record for subscribers is held by the Indian music video channel T-Series, which has more than 200 million subscribers. In second place was “Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes” with 147 million followers, in third place was Sony Entertainment Television, an Indian TV channel. They have 146 million subscribers.
