The Only Mr. Beast
The 24-year-old has been identified as the richest and best creative in the world right now, ranking first on Forbes’ 2022 Top Creators.
According to Forbes, MrBeast had 162 million followers, an average engagement rate of 5.99 percent, and an entrepreneurial score of three in 2021. He also reported earning a staggering $54 million.
According to reports, the majority of his earnings came from sponsorships on his YouTube videos.
But what was his main justification for winning first place?
Mr. Beast won the top spot on this list, according to Forbes, “not just because he earns more than anybody else, but also because his restaurant concept, MrBeast Burger, is a truly entrepreneurial method for the YouTuber to monetize his celebrity.
“Rather than invest in cooking equipment or delivery infrastructure, MrBeast created the ghost kitchen operation in December 2020, in which people order a MrBeast Burger online and an affiliated restaurant with extra staff prepares the order for delivery.”
However, MrBeast didn’t receive the news with the same sense of excitement that you might anticipate.
He thanked Forbes for the “number one slot” in a tweet response to their piece, but he also took the time to correct several of their numbers.
A couple of edits, I have more than 160 million followers, our channels have 200 million+ subscribers only on their own, and the entrepreneur score seems off, some of my friends with less than ten employees scored the same as those with more than one hundred, lol.
In 2012, MrBeast made his YouTube debut and quickly became well-known for his bizarre and risky videos.
The content producer goes above and above for his fans, spending big money or placing himself in risky situations, such as “purchasing everything in a store” or “50 hours buried alive.”
Even though not everyone liked his reenactment of the popular Netflix survival show Squid Game—one person called it “ironic” while another said Mr. Beast had missed the “purpose” of the program—the video nevertheless received over 200 million views.
In Forbes’ 2022 Top Creators, Mr. Beast will be followed by people like Charli D’Amelio, who became well-known for her dancing videos on TikTok.
Her net income from 2021, which totaled $17.5 million, was merely a tenth of Mr. Beast’s, despite the fact that she came in right after him.
Podcaster Alexandra Cooper, who made $20 million in 2021, is in third position.
MrBeast chose to give his 100,000,000th user their own private island as a way to commemorate the platform just reaching 100 million subscribers.
What will he do to celebrate making Forbes’ list of the top creators for 2022? Who knows, but it’s safe to say that there will probably be a ton of money involved.
