Amazon Prime Orders MrBeast’s Reality Show BEAST GAMES

By Movieguide® Contributor

Amazon Prime Video has put in a series order for BEAST GAMES, a reality competition show from YouTuber MrBeast. 

BEAST GAMES has hopes “to become the biggest reality competition series ever with 1000 contestants competing for a $5 million dollar cash prize,” according to a press release about the show. 

MrBeast — whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson — will host the show and serve as an executive producer. He is one of YouTube’s biggest content creators, boasting 245 million subscribers to his channel. 

“His family-friendly videos typically feature stunts and acts of philanthropy, such as paying for cataract surgeries to help 1,000 blind people see again,” The Hollywood Reporter explained. “He’s given away millions in food and supplies for those in need. He’s built his own studio for creating content, a $10 million facility in North Carolina.”

In a statement about BEAST GAMES, Donaldson said, “My goal is to make the greatest show possible and prove YouTubers and creators can succeed on other platforms. Amazon gave me the creative control I need to try and make it happen. I hope to make the YouTube community proud.”

Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon MGM Studios, added, “MrBeast has captured the attention and imagination of fans of all ages, from all walks of life, and all over the world. We are excited to work with Jimmy and his talented team to bring his brilliant, high production, and stakes-raising concepts to BEAST GAMES for our global customers to experience.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Donaldson’s deal with Amazon:

Massive YouTuber MrBeast and Amazon Prime Video are in talks to finalize a $100 million reality competition deal.

Though no details are known about what the show would entail, it would likely follow the format of MrBeast’s YouTube channel, which has risen to the top of the platform due to its wild challenges and large cash prizes.

While part of the MrBeast brand is Donaldson attempting difficult challenges that can last for weeks at a time, the deal with Prime Video appears to focus on the other half of the brand, which is creating competitions for others to participate in for life-changing amounts of money.

Though an official deal between Donaldson and Prime Video has to be signed, it seems likely that the two parties will find a way to come together for this show.
