Before we dive into some of his most outrageous videos you have to see to believe, let’s take a deep dive into the background of MrBeast and his journey to becoming one of YouTube’s biggest stars.

MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, was born on May 7th, 1998 and grew up in Greenville, North Carolina. He created his YouTube channel in 2012 when he was just 14 years old, posting gaming videos and commentary. However, it wasn’t until he started doing challenges and stunts on his channel that he really started to gain a following.

He’s said that he wants to use his platform for good, and he’s certainly making a difference through his giving.
