YouTube star MrBeast says he ‘doesn’t really need money’ because he only makes videos: ‘I’ve only left the studio once in the past 20 days’

  • America’s biggest YouTuber MrBeast said he “don’t really need money” for personal expenses.
  • The YouTuber said he spends most of his money making videos and barely leaves his studio.
  • Donaldson has previously stated that he lives in his North Carolina movie studio.

Jimmy Donaldson, America’s biggest YouTuber, shared his thoughts on money in an interview posted on September 27.

Speaking to Graham Stephan, the host of YouTube podcast “The Iced Coffee Hour,” Donaldson said he reinvests the ad revenue from his extended videos into producing new content, rather than accumulating the revenue on a personal bank account.

“I live in the studio there, so I don’t worry about paying for a mansion. I don’t drive a Lamborghini. I would purposely have a very simplified lifestyle because it gives you freedom,” he said.

Donaldson previously said he lives in his movie studio, which is located in his hometown of Greenville, North Carolina

Donaldson continued, “I like money because I can hire more people and grow a business, but not so that I can improve my lifestyle, or whatever,” adding: “In the past 20 days I’ve had these only left studio once, I live here, I don’t really need money for other things.”

The YouTuber said he can withdraw money from the channel for personal use at any time, such as if he is invited to a $50,000 buy-in poker game.

“I’m just going to take 50 grand out and play in it. So it’s not like I don’t have access to capital when I need it,” he said.

Donaldson told Stephan that he is driven by “making the best videos possible”, adding that “everything I do comes from that”.

Donaldson is one of the most popular and highest paid creators on YouTube. In July, he reached 100 million subscribers on his main channel and livestreamed his response for viewers. He is currently the second most subscribed individual creator on YouTube after Pewdiepie.

The YouTuber has built a reputation among fans for giving away large sums of money to viewers. He became famous in 2018 by donating thousands of dollars to small Twitch streamers and YouTubers.

More recently, he has filmed extensive competitions where fans participate in videos and have a chance to win big prizes. Last year, he made the Netflix show “Squid Game” for a contest with 456 supporters, and in June he gave away $500,000 to a fan in a contest inspired by “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”
