How Did MrBeast Cross 10 Million Subscribers in 1 month
MrBeast’s subscriber spike largely came from his recreation of the popular Netflix series Squid Game. Back in October, MrBeast announced he was working on fully recreating every one of the games from Squid Game. The whole ordeal allegedly cost $456,000 to construct and put on.
Popular Youtuber MrBeast just broke the record for the most subscribers gained in a single month, with a massive 9.2 million new subscribers just for the month of November. This just beat out the previous record-holder Indian YouTuber and comedian Carryminati who gained 9.1 million subscribers in May 2020. Mr.Beast now hosts 82.2 million total subscribers on youtube, making him the seventh most subscribed channel on the video content platform.
In the month of November, MrBeast averaged more than 300,000 subscribers gained per day, with a weekly average of 2.1 million. On Nov. 11, he gained 1.3 million subscribers in a single day.
The Squid Game adaption is not the only project MrBeast has continued his Team Seas project, an effort to pick up 30 million pounds of trash from the ocean. To promote this, Mr.Beast has recruited countless streamers to the cause and even appeared on Jimmy Kimmel earlier in the month.
