According to reports, MrBeast, the philanthropic YouTuber known for big-money giveaways, is closing his own big-money deal worth $100 million with Amazon Prime Video.
His first TV show is still to be officially confirmed by the streaming giant.
It’s rumored to be an Amazon reality-competition show – much like his viral videos on social media.
However, the specifics about the content, title and big-money giveaways are, as yet, undisclosed.
MrBeast, aka Jimmy Donaldson, is the most-followed individual creator on YouTube.
In a bid to direct his massive 233 million subscribers from YouTube to the Amazon streaming service, the first episode will premier on his channel first.
It was a series of elimination challenges, emulating the most-watched-ever Netflix show.
The eventual winner received $446,000.
According to a source cited by Puck, the ongoing deal is nearing $100 million – though nothing has yet been signed.
He gave an abandoned island to a subscriber for an entire year, for example.
He also owed an incredible amount to two strangers after offering them $500k to survive 100 days trapped together.
His philanthropic work is also an investment.
He built 100 wells across Africa to provide clean drinking water as just one of his projects in 2023.
However, MrBeast said his first video posted to X earlier this month made over $260,000 in ad revenue with 156+ million views.
And we already knew about the incredible amount he earns via YouTube.
Donaldson is reportedly the highest-earning internet creator, per Forbes, generating an estimated $82 million in gross earnings from June 2022 to June 2023.
That’s more than twice the earnings any other digital creator.
Neither Amazon nor MrBeast have commented on the reports.
