The American content creator is also no stranger to creating viral videos. Having amassed over 177 million subscribers on YouTube, every video he releases reaches a huge number of people, with some of his videos going mega-viral.
In 2021, he uploaded a game show version of the popular TV series Squid Game, investing millions in his currently most popular video on the platform with over 480 million views.
Recently, he released a video where he had “every country” in the world compete for a grand prize, which also turned out to be an instant hit among his viewers. Overall, it would not be an exaggeration to say MrBeast has mastered the art of content creation, repeatedly smashing records with his uploads.
The video was uploaded on August 19 and immediately proved successful among fans and casual viewers alike. The video includes sports like fencing and soccer and the world-famous MrBeast challenges.

The Extreme Olympics video, which sees a MrBeast subscriber from every country in the world compete for a grand prize, has already caused a stir over the internet among fans. The video has further proven the YouTuber’s talent to create and host successful game shows.
On social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Zach Pogrob, a fitness and motivational content creator, stated about MrBeast and Beast Games that this could compete with and be bigger than some of the most popular obstacle courses, namely Spartan and Tough Mudder.
