Jimmy Donaldson better known as MrBeast is a widely sensational internet personality with 234 million subscribers on YouTube. He primarily is a content creator on the video surfing service YouTube, in addition to occasionally being a philanthropist and change maker.
After living in prison for 50 hours, doing $1 and $1 million hotel comparisons, breaking a few world records, and other extravagant and bizarre stunts, Jimmy is venturing into a new direction. He has reportedly signed a deal with Prime Video.
What Is MrBeast And Amazon Prime’s $100 Million Deal About?
When MrBeast is involved things are sure to be over the top. And in this never heard of before deal he proves his reputation. Puck News reports, “When his team took the show out to the streamers last week, it made sense that Amazon’s Jen Salke, who is looking for more populist entertainment, emerged victorious. One source pegs the deal, if it closes, at nearly $100 million, though that’s not confirmed. (Amazon declined to comment).”
Newsletter writer, Matthew Belloni elaborates that it’ll be a competition show of some form (‘Squid Game‘ flashbacks anyone?). The details however aren’t out, in what form or condition will the competition be isn’t clear as of yet. What is confirmed is that the first episode will stream on YouTube first.
It also remains unclear whether the rest of the episodes will stream on YouTube too. Or is the first episode stream just a tactic to leverage Prime Video’s membership counts?
