MrBeast Reveals Insane Expense Behind YouTube Videos And Why He Wants To Go ‘Bigger’

YouTuber MrBeast has revealed why he still wants to “push the boundaries” and “grow bigger” with his main channel videos, despite their insane cost.

Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is one of the most popular YouTubers on the site right now, with over 94 million subscribers on his main channel alone.

He is known for his philanthropy as well as his wacky video ideas that often garner tens of millions of views and go viral on social media.

In late 2021, he took on his craziest challenge yet – a life-size recreation of the hit series Squid Game – which cost a staggering $3.5 million. But despite previously revealing he’s losing “a ridiculous amount of money” through his main channel, he doesn’t seem planning to go back any time soon.

MrBeast’s Squid Game became his most viewed video with over 240 million views.

In conversation with Rolling Stone, MrBeast revealed that each main channel video he makes often costs around a million dollars to produce. Jimmy said, “I could do cheaper videos,” Donaldson says. “But I just don’t want to. I want to push the boundaries to get bigger, bigger.”

Regarding people questioning his motivations regarding his charitable endeavors, the YouTuber also stated, “I know myself and I don’t have anything to prove to anyone. I think what I did speaks for itself.

“I’ve built an entire channel around my nonprofit that I’ve put an incredible number of hours into building and will never see a penny from… I’m losing tens of thousands of dollars and dozens of hours every month. The opportunity cost could go into projects that bring in millions of dollars. So I don’t care I don’t say these things publicly because that’s not why I do it.”

Beast Philanthropy is one of Jimmy’s popular YouTube channels.

One of MrBeast’s channels is Beast Philanthropy, whose proceeds go to his charity, which “currently operates a pantry with a mobile food distribution network set up to address food insecurity in remote and underserved food deserts.”

Jimmy is known for being generous, and in early April he even allowed fans to order free Feastables candy bars for 10 minutes, which eventually caused the site to crash. MrBeast Reveals Insane Expense Behind YouTube Videos And Why He Wants To Go ‘Bigger’
