MrBeast also promised his fans that he will still continue to make the best possible content. “No matter how big I get I’ll never own a mansion, yacht, Lamborghini etc. All I want is to make the best videos possible and help as many people as I can while doing it,” wrote MrBeast.
The milestone makes MrBeast the second individual after Sweden’s PewDiePie to have more than 100 million subscribers on the platform. He is also the fifth YouTube channel to achieve the impressive feat.
To celebrate this remarkable achievement, MrBeast is launching new merch and has confirmed that he will be releasing one of his most expensive videos to date on August 4.
