Before mr. Beast would give away over 1 million dollars via YouTube today
I’m gonna show you guys how I gave away 1 million dollars before mr
Beast would spend 24 hours straight underwater and 24 hours straight and slime. Ah
How deep is this oh my gosh the bottom of success yeah before mr. Beast would count to 100,000 and
200,000 and say logan Paul’s name a hundred thousand times
Alright, hopefully, uh, I don’t screw this up. Alright, well, Logan Paul
Logan Paul Logan Paul Logan Paul, Logan Paul Logan pause before mr
Beast would have one of the most liked videos on the platform of all time before mr. Beast would have over 15 million YouTube subscribers
Over 2 billion views over 2.5 million followers on Instagram and over a million followers on Twitter at the time of this recording
Now if you’re on YouTube then you know, mr. Beast
You’ve seen the money he gives out you’ve seen the crazy things
He does in his videos and you fallen in love with the guy just like everybody else
But what you might not know is that mr. Beast
He’s been making videos for over seven years now and while he might have millions of subscribers today, it actually took mr
beast two years to get his first
1000 now, mr. Beast
He started his YouTube channel at the age of 12 where he started to post video game
Commentary now over the next few years
He switched between minecraft Call of Duty Pokemon and other games while documenting his YouTube goals throughout his entire journey
But it was his videos talking about other
Youtubers and finding the worst intros on the site that helps him build a fanbase and after years of daily
Dedication and grinding. Well, he found a formula to become one of the biggest creators in the game
Mmm, really love this kids come up what’s going on guys at your boy Michael cretin finally documenting the life and career of mr
B’s prior to Fame here for you, of course before they’re famous now

Be sure to subscribe and hit that Bell boom, mr
Beast was born Jimmy Donaldson on May 7th 1998 in Greensville
North Carolina where he attended Greenville Christian Academy and was always really close with his mother
Then we actually did a Q&A with his mom when he was at 10,000 subscribers
What is your opinion on me doing YouTube as a full-time job?
In that video we told a story about how in the second grade well Jimmy, he stole the change off his teacher’s desk
So he could buy ukyo cards. I guess he was hustling from day one now as for his early life
Well, Jimmy, he doesn’t remember much like teaching you remember what you’re doing
You’re like 11 and 10 cuz I don’t Jimmy always had a passion for video games and when he was 12 years old
He started his own youtube channel called beast 5t. Why and it seems like this was the day his real life started
It was a gaming channel with his first ever upload being an interaction
He had with a hacker during a game of battle pirates on Facebook
No, although the game wasn’t super popular online Jimmy. He loved to play it and since he was playing it all the time
Anyways, well he thought he might as well start making videos from it
I put up the footage of that battle pirates hacker attacking me and I titled it
Craziest bad pirates hacker and I didn’t even do that because I click Vader because of any of that
His first video got thousands of views, which is nothing compared to the millions
He gets now but at the time it was a huge milestone and enough to keep him motivated to make more videos
Now his friend Chris who now appears in some of his biggest videos and works for him
He was Jimmy’s first subscriber at the time
Jimmy kept posting gameplay videos from battle pirates and he grew a small following of others who are fans of the
Gay and the few people did play it. They all watched me on YouTube
I was like the only one posting it in a later video
Jimmy said that he wrote down a list of goals and a notepad on his iPad touch and well
He only had two original goals for his YouTube channel
He wanted to get to 1,000 subs and 100,000 views and I’ve I’ve been fully obsessed like my whole life since then
So like I always believed it at 13 Jimmy started playing call of duty now because of his love for the game
He began watching youtubers who posted gameplay videos of Cod to learn more. He cites woodysgamertag
whiteboy tmartn, ali-a
and Moore’s early inspirations
And that while they inspired him to do his own YouTube commentary videos for Call of Duty
Now after growing his channel a little bit, he would consistently get a couple hundred views per video next
He started playing Minecraft and decided he wanted to post minecraft commentary as Wow, but he wanted to keep things separate
So he created a new channel on February 19 2012. He created a second channel called. Mr
B’s 6000 which was originally just so we could upload his minecraft commentary videos. He didn’t want to mix it all up now
He took the name, mr. Beast from his xbox live gamertag, and he used it as the name for the new channel
I know most of you aren’t gonna be able to respect me now that you know that but it’s the truth Jimmy then found a
Sub4sub website and he decided to see if it would help him quickly grow his channel
He did it for three weeks straight and he invested a little bit of money into the site
He did get a lot of subscribers. He says around 10,000 but when he posted his new videos, his views were even lower than before
Someone’s low was 5 views per video 3 of which well they were mr. Beast himself
Probably his mom. Also my mom used to be one of my first anyway at one day out of frustration
he deleted his original Call of Duty channel and decided to start fresh with the second minecraft Channel and one of his old videos he
Actually says that the day after he deleted his channel. Well, he was on google searching. How do you get a deleted youtube channel back?
You know because he had some regrets I could understand
He only had two videos left up on his minecraft channel
One titled worst minecraft saw trap ever and the other titled Harry Potter mod in Minecraft epic must seem odd
but after his frustration with YouTube and his lack of early progress
Bully took a break from posting videos his surprise when he came back a few months later his two videos had thousands of views
Currently those two videos have over
160,000 and close to 600,000 views respectively people wanted that before. They’re famous
You know, I mean Jimmy kept posting Minecraft videos, but eventually he got tired of them
He uploaded pokémon battle videos for about a month straight before returning back to Minecraft videos briefly and then moving on to a game called
Project Zomboid
Now we eventually moved back to Call of Duty commentary videos
Which is ironic because he originally created his second channel so that he can have a place where he posted all of this non Call
of Duty videos
Little confusing now after the school year was over he spent his summer posting consistently
With daily uploads and posted the video on August 2nd 2013
Called randomness and this is where he talks about the importance of persistence on YouTube even after the summer is over
But if you would just keep
Uploading like a month longer and upload during August
You would your videos would get at least triple the views because people sub boxes are gonna have a third
The videos in time and a couple of days later
He uploaded a video saying that he gained 140 subscribers in the past month seems pretty minimal compared to how many you gains today
But it’s cool to see how excited he would get about each step in his progression
My goal as of right now is to build as big as the following as I can going into ghosts get as many subscribers
And viewers as I can and then when ghost comes out, I’m just hoping I explode I take off at that point
He was just hoping to get a couple hundred thousand subscribers
Now one of the most proud moments for a young mr
Beast was when he received a gaming partnership on YouTube with a company called zoom in TV
I spent hours upon hours looking up information and applying to networks
And I’m gonna try to give you everything and anything you need to know about a gaming partnership in this video. Mr
Beast was hoping that after he took a break from black ops 2 and posted gameplay for Call of Duty go
That his channel would blow up. Well, that’s not exactly what happened
The new call of duty came out and he posted a few videos about it. None of them really gain much traction
So we went back to posting about his favorite game good old battle pirates by 2013
He had fifty thousand video views with many of them coming from his first couple of videos. I never thought I’d get 50,000 views
That’s a lot and hopefully those 50,000 people were entertained
We found a second channel that he created with his friends back in 2013 that only had a thousand stops, but you know
They only posted a few videos on its top
What are the first videos on his channel that wasn’t video game related was titled how much money does PewDiePie make and the video it?
is now
87,000 views now
It’s crazy because in the description of the video
You can see how excited he was at the time to get
500 likes on a video little did he know that later on in his career. He would save PewDiePie’s life, okay?
Well, not really, but he would give him the sub count in the epic t Series battle. Whoa
I feel like I just turned into a
voiceover Pete let’s move on attention all
nine-year-old gamers
Shout out – voiceover Pete who wants before they’re famous on him now in the ninth grade Jimmy he discovered that he had Crohn’s disease
and he said he lost about thirty pounds and he was in bed all summer and was going to the bathroom around seven times a
Now he’s on medication today and is on a strict diet and he said that he was eating the same thing every day in high
School to feel better physically, he would even bring his own food. If the basketball team they went out to McDonald’s after a game
Tough break, but I just wanted to talk about what Crohn’s disease is
and the reason I wanted to do a video on it is because every week thousands of people are diagnosed with it and
hundreds of those people are teens
He played basketball and baseball in high school
Which actually slowed down his uploading schedule just a little bit
Then we also started lifting weights and in an old video called story time
He told the story about the time he was lifting after playing basketball and he asked the massive dude if he could spot him
Now Jimmy he was no dwayne
but he agreed to spot the guy knowing that he would not be able to help him at all if the guy couldn’t lift the
bar up
and his arms start shaking so
Immediately I start lifting with all my might the truth of the matter is the bar was stuck on his chest
He was pushing as hard as he could. It was actually because the sports and homework that mr. Beast
He almost quit YouTube for good and it’s crazy that his journey. It almost ended there
No to all the smaller creators out there take this as a lesson that sometimes you’re closer to
Success than you think you just gotta keep on going
I don’t know you guys make it hard to quit cuz I thought for sure I was done for YouTube
But I don’t know. I kind of feel like I want to start uploading again
Although we didn’t end up quitting YouTube. He did decide to quit playing video games
He felt like it was taking up too much of his time and he wanted to spend that time on sports and making videos
By the beginning of 2014 after 100 videos well, mr. Beast. He had seven hundred and thirty
Subscribers. Oh my god
which that’s just
Insane and that blows my mind cuz I never thought I’d get anywhere near that many subscribers and I definitely never thought I’d get this
Many views so thank you for that. He reached his original YouTube goal of 1000 subs later that year. Mr
beast actually had the idea to do some epic things with his YouTube ad revenue long before he started giving out billions of dollars in
2013 he posted the video with the title if this video gets 1 million views and while it only has
45,000 views as of today. He seemed to have a plan for something bigger if he had reached his goal
I would use the ad revenue to do something super epic that I already have planned
But chances are it’s not so oh well, but you know miracles happen. He also made a video titled
I hate PewDiePie just to see how many views he could add and the video. Well, it now has close to 40,000 views now
Beast he was always thinking of ways to go viral
But he was still figuring out how to make it happen by March of 2014
He had over 100,000 views in total on his YouTube channel and around that time
He said he was making about $30 a month via YouTube
He could have done videos where he gave out 30 dollars to strangers, but I probably wouldn’t have gotten is yes, you know
I mean I’m making around $30 a month. That’s what I’m averaging right now. So if you are considering starting a YouTube channel
Channel, my size is making around $30 a month. Mr
beast made a video where he asked
Subscribers to write down their subscriber goals for the year in the comment section now Jimmy, he wrote down his own goal of having
7,500 scribers in
2015 over the course of the next year will mr. Beast. He didn’t give up his dream of having a successful YouTube channel
He uploaded
Consistently switching his style up periodically and making a bunch of different types of videos
Mostly rooted in content surrounding youtubers or just the site itself this summer. Mr
Beast content would get a lot of views like his pewdiepie videos and what about youtubes diamond play button
But most of his weekly uploads they would only receive a couple thousand views tops, but it was mr
beasts worst intro series that gained him true YouTube popularity
Now the idea behind the series was pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Mr
Beast would roast youtubers for some of their terrible video intros that exist out there and I’m just glad we never made that list
Although I have made it on someone’s like, you know, they copied him and they throw anyway Thank You mr. Beast
You are the king second. You’re the Prince Fielder price. Alright, then in 2018
You decided to put all his worst intro videos to private
Maybe he wanted to move on from that part of his life
Or maybe he felt like he was being mean but either way it was the next chapter of his YouTube career
That would be his biggest yet
Now put your goals into the universe kids and watch the manifest now before the year was over he had over 10,000 subscribers
And he was growing every day eventually. He got the 20,000 subscribers
I believe it took me two years to get my first 10,000 subscribers and then my next
10,000 from 10,000 to
20,000 only took about five months if you’re wondering what he was doing in that video while he was cutting a table in half with
a plastic knife
Because he got a hundred
retweets on a tweet where he said he would cut a table and half with a plastic knife if the tweet got a hunch of
Retweets now it really has to change tonight. I mean mm-hmm in 2016
He made a similar subscriber goal video, but this time it was a little more ambitious
I know this is gonna seem really out there and you know kinda outrageous but my goal for next year is a hundred thousand subscribers
I currently have 20,000 and I plan to have a hundred thousand in a year
He even made a video talking to himself two years in the future
I hope you have at least 100k subs if you don’t have a hundred K subs I am
I’m gonna disown you I just like I know you’re gonna I’m
I’m gonna have two hundred. Yeah, mr
B’s graduated in 2016 and he decided to keep working on building his YouTube channel now his mom
She made him go to Community College because his channel wasn’t making him enough money just yet, but after two weeks of school
Yeah, he decided to drop out and then I just like I’d rather be poor and making videos than literally doing anything else
That’s when mr. B’s decided he needed something big to happen. He went all-in and it was in 2017 that he became the mr
Beast that we know and love today
He started coming up with insane concepts and doing never-before-seen things online that garnered millions of views
The moment that really changed it all for mr. Beast was this video where he counted to
100,000 in one sitting that video took him almost the full day to record but it was worth it because the video has now received
More than 15 million views but as one commenter pointed out well, mr. Beast
He actually counted from fifty thousand two hundred and eighty one to fifty thousand two hundred eighty three
So, you know, he might want to reshoot that video. I let it slide. I’m goddamn commoners. They never missed nothing
It’s my fly up from there his popularity kept growing and his ideas. They kept getting more creative
He might crave things that probably shouldn’t be microwaved. He read the entire dictionary
He counted the two hunt thousand and he did everything he could to get PewDiePie on top of t-series. We’re to stay on top
Oh, yeah
He also gave away more than a million dollars to everyone from twitch streamers to homeless people
Now all of that it led to him becoming one of the fastest growing youtubers on the planet and with his drive and motivation
Well, it seems like it’s only up from here, honestly
I just want to be as big as possible, you know to feel like the bigger you are the more, you know
You fun stuff. You can do it as for the future
He states that he wants to make a bunch of money invested and have fun along the way
But as for the rest of the story
I think we’re gonna blur I know babe you be it we wrap this one up here because I’m turning into
That pig from Looney Tunes snippet. Maybe they’re dead. That’s all folks. See you guys. Got it. See you guys in another video Oh,
