MrBeast's show comes to Amazon Prime Video with $5 million prize

YouTube sensation MrBeast is taking his popular "Beast Games" show from YouTube to Amazon Prime Video. The show will feature 1,000 contestants competing for a remarkable $5 million prize, making it the largest single prize in the history of television and streaming, according to Amazon.

Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, expressed his excitement for the show, stating that it will be "insane" and "like our normal videos, but just 20 times better." He also mentioned that money is not a constraint for the show, allowing for more creative freedom.

Donaldson shared his goal to create an exceptional show and prove that YouTubers and creators can succeed on other platforms. Amazon has given him creative control to bring his vision to life.

It is unclear how this new venture will impact MrBeast's massive YouTube following, as he is one of the highest-paid creators on the platform with approximately 240 million subscribers.

In addition to his upcoming show, Donaldson recently offered advice to aspiring content creators, cautioning them against prematurely dropping out of school or quitting their jobs. He emphasized that while he has found success, many others do not, urging aspiring creators to be cautious and strategic in their decisions.
