This is the mind-blowing amount MrBeast earns on YouTube as he turns down Elon Musk

People, including Elon Musk, have called for MrBeast to share his content on X

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of the YouTube sensation that is MrBeast.

MrBeast - real name Jimmy Donaldson - joined the platform over a decade again and is well on his way to becoming the first YouTube billionaire.

At just 25-years-old, Donaldson creates multimillion dollar content for YouTube and definitely reaps the rewards of splashing the cash.

He boasts a whopping 230 million subscribers on YouTube and, in light of his extreme popularity, Elon Musk wants in.

Musk, one of the world's richest human beings, completed his acquisition of Twitter (now named X) in 2022, and has tried to urge Donaldson to start utilising the platform for his content.

X-users have also called for the social media star to star sharing his videos on X.

"I uploaded, go watch or I’ll drop kick you," Donaldson tweeted December 30.

"Upload on this platform too," urged one person, as a second echoed: "You can upload here so we can watch in the X app."

"I would watch it if you posted direct to X but I'm not gonna go all the way over to YouTube for it," added a third.

Jumping on the bandwagon, Musk replied to the first tweet simply writing 'Yeah' in agreement.

Replying to the billionaire tech mogul, Donaldson said: "My videos cost millions to make and even if they got a billion views on X it wouldn’t fund a fraction of it."

People have urged MrBeast to share his content on X.

"I’m down though to test stuff once monetization is really cranking!" he added.

Musk has since insisted that 'creator rewards will increase significantly this year'.

But how much does Donaldson actually make on YouTube, I hear you ask?

According to reports, in 2023 alone, the 25-year-old raked in a staggering $82 million. The year prior, he made $54 million - $32 million of which came from ads, Forbes reports.

In regards to his net worth, it's said that Donaldson is worth $500 million.

As well as YouTube, MrBeast also makes his money on Facebook and TikTok.

He creates his content in a so-called 'top secret' multimillion dollar filming studios.

He has two studios in total, both located in Greenville, North Carolina.

Donaldson gave fellow YouTuber Arun Maini a tour of his filming spaces back in 2020, with Maini going on to tally up the price of the studio and its contents being around an eye-watering $14 million.

Most of his videos are filmed in what's known as 'Studio C' - a 50,000 square foot room.
