MrBeast responds to question of whether he’s a billionaire yet

A TikTok video has emerged of MrBeast being interviewed by Logan Paul about his billionaire status.

In the video posted to a fan TikTok account (unlimited_content_beast), Paul asks MrBeast about whether he’s hit the billion-dollar mark yet

In 2023, Time named him as one of the world’s 100 most influential people.

He has ranked on the Forbes list for the highest paid YouTube creator in 2022.

Jimmy Donaldson, aka MrBeast, earns $54 million annually, according to Forbes.

“Let’s be honest, you’re going to be YouTube’s first billionaire,” he said. “Has it happened?”

“No responds,” MrBeast.

“If I was it would obviously be paper – it’s like Beast Burger and stuff.


“Actual cash, I’m probably the poorest person in this room.”

Logan Paul scoffs at the idea – which is understandable considering MrBeast recently tipped a waitress with a car and gave an island to a subscriber.

The YouTuber explains further, saying that if he makes $3-4 million a month, “he just spends it on videos the next month”.

He describes his margins as “razor thin”.

Which could be true after how much he owes after offering two strangers $500,000 to survive 100 days trapped together was revealed.

The unbelievable amount MrBeast actually earns from YouTube was recently revealed, as Elon Musk made him an X offer.

Paul then asks him about the risks of a video not yielding the response he’d hoped for.

MrBeast responds that he puts as much into his videos as he gets out.

“As long as you’re reinvesting everything and you’re constantly innovating and adapting it’s pretty hard to fall off if you’re like putting in the effort,” he says.

To which Paul responds with what we’re all thinking: “That’s easy for you to say – all you do is put in the effort!”
