Jimmy Donaldson, better known as Mr. Beast, is extremely popular on the Internet for his many money-related stunts. In the latest, though not part of a publicity stunt, he has bought an entire neighborhood for himself, his family and his employees.
Mr. Beast buys an entire neighborhood for his family and employees
As reported by Kotaku, Mr. Beast has been buying properties in the same North Carolina neighborhood for himself, his family, and his employees for some time. This series of purchases would have taken place over a five-year period, for a total expenditure of around $2 million.
According to the New York Post, Donaldson bought his first property in the neighborhood in 2018 for about $320,000. The second was purchased in 2020 for $263,000, and the remaining three for nearly $1.5 million. Bottom line: five homes in the same neighborhood for about $2 million.
How much money does Mr. Beast have? How did he become famous?
Born on May 7, 1998, Jimmy Donaldson’s total net worth would amount to $54 million, so this $2 million expenditure is not a hard hit to his finances. In fact, just a few days ago, he gave away money in a sweepstakes via Instagram.
MrBeast gained some notoriety in 2017 thanks to a 23-hour viral video in which the YouTuber counted up to 100,000. The video in question has garnered more than 28 million views.
This is considered by many to be his first step towards fame; over time he has become the most subscribed YouTuber (over 150 million subscribers, almost nothing), considering that he is an individual and not a company, and this fame has allowed him, among other things, to have his own Fortnite skin. All this thanks to his videos, in which he does all kinds of things with a lot of money.
