A small percentage of people (vloggers) rely on YouTube as their main source of income. MrBeast happens to be one of the best.

Due to this, we tried to calculate the estimated number of how much money does MrBeast make?

How much does Mr Beast make?

Who is MrBeast?

Born on 7th May 1998, Jimmy Donaldson, popularly known as MrBeast. He is a popular YouTuber, philanthropist, and super popular social media influencer.

When he was 13 years old, he began posting videos on YouTube under the handle, ‘MrBeast 6000’ in 2012.

After graduating high school, Jimmy joined college, where he only lasted for two weeks before he dropped out. He wanted to focus on being a YouTuber and by mid-2016, he had amassed 30,000 subscribers after posting his Worst Intros video series, where he poked fun at other YouTubers’ introductions.

Note that he has an older brother, CJ Donaldson, who has a channel called ‘MrBro.

Notable, aside from his expensive stunts and being a philanthropist, MrBeast is a co-founder of Team Trees, a fundraiser for the Abor Day Foundation, which has raised over $22 million.

Now he is ranked among the top 50 YouTubers with over 37 million subscribers. As his Twitter bio states, “I want to make the world a better place before I die.”

How Much Does MrBeast Make?

Although Jimmy is known to display his spending spree publicly, the opposite can be said about his earnings.

It is difficult to exactly determine how much money MrBeast earns. I mean, how do you calculate the earnings of a man who once tipped a pizza delivery guy, $10,000? Or how he once gave out free cars from a car dealership he had opened? It’s no secret that most of his earnings are reinvested.

It is fair to say that he has earned his fortune solely through his YouTube channel. Additional streams of revenue he gets just add more to his revenue.

Since YouTube doesn’t disclose exactly how much it pays, and the YouTubers are very private about it, we will be using estimates according to CPM?

What is CPM?

It simply stands for Cost Per Mille (mille is a Latin word for thousand).

YouTube pays per thousand views.

For each paid ad, YouTube takes 45% of the CPM, and the YouTuber takes the remaining 55%. This means, if an ad pays $8, the YouTuber gets $4.40.


The amounts and figures of earnings described in this article are estimates only collected from publicly available information.

That’s why you can find different estimates from various sources.

Remember, YouTubers approximately earn $3 to $5 per view from standard ads. His channel has high traffic, so ads from Google Preferred Program pay higher, leading to an estimate of $5.5 to $8 per 1000 views.

Working with this average, his earnings can be calculated easily.

Assuming he is paid $5 per 1000 views on a video viewed 20 million times, MrBeast makes $100,000 per video.


How Much Does MrBeast Make Per Month?

Having already established how much he makes per video, it is easy to calculate how much he earns per month.

MrBeast makes less than 3-4 videos in a month, and the videos accumulate over 80 million views, keeping in mind that old videos still get viewed to date.

With an average of 1oo million views per month and a conversion of $5 per 1000 views, MrBeast is known to earn an estimated $400,000 per month.


How Much Does MrBeast Make Per Year?

With the estimates of how much he earns per video, and month calculating his earnings per year is not complicated.

Keep in mind that these estimates cover all videos, either old or new. Old videos still generate new views, and those views are still paid.

He earns an estimated; $400,000 per month, so to get his estimated earnings per year, we multiply his monthly earnings by 12 = $4,800,000 per year.

Again, just approximate calculations excluding additional income from other activities.

What Is MrBeast’s Net Worth?

Calculating somebody’s net worth, someone who is not publicly open – hard.

All the above stats have been calculated by estimating, and by no means do they indicate the actual figures.

It’s a known fact that MrBeast is endorsed by some major brands, but there is no information about how much they pay him. Also, his website has not published any number of sales for his merchandise.

With over 6 billion views on his channel, MrBeast sure is a top earner.

Hypothetically speaking, if all the 6 billion views were paid at an average of $5 per thousand views, his estimated earnings from when he started posting on YouTube are $30 million.

If we exclude taxes, expenses, and donations, the figures would fall, but still, it’s a lot of money.

So from the calculations of his yearly earnings, we can conclude his net worth to be an estimated $6 million to $30 million.

MrBeast’s YouTube Stats and History

In January 2017, MrBeast went viral for the first time after uploading a video of him counting from 1 to 100,000. He claimed it took him 44 hours.

After this video, he found success in other outlandish videos, such as watching a video of, It’s Everyday Bro by Jake Paul for 10 uninterrupted hours and a subsequent video trying to count from 1 to 200,000, which had to be sped up not to exceed YouTube’s upload limit.

These videos helped push to 1 million subscribers by November the same year.

Regarded as a ‘Junklord YouTuber, MrBeast has pulled off expensive stunts destroying products such as his friend’s car only to buy him a new one and trying to break the glass using a hundred megaphones.

Furthermore, he has participated in charity works where he gave out $1 million through his outlandish stunts, expensive giveaways to his unsuspecting fans on Twitch, among other places.

That’s not all, though, when it comes to achievements; Jimmy has been on the frontline that on the 12th Annual Shorty Awards that took place in May 2020, he was honored as the ‘YouTuber of The year 2020’.

Over the years, he has amassed a mass following, and all of his videos have garnered over 10 million views. Currently, his videos have been viewed over 6 billion times, and his subscribers have grown to over 37 million and counting.

Anyway, according to our estimated numbers on how much money does MrBeast make, we could say that this is an impressive sum of money for anyone.

He has employed four of his childhood friends who appear on his videos frequently. When it comes to spending, he is known for his lavish spending and giving away huge amounts of money.

Nevertheless, don’t let the spending fool you. This is also another way of making money as he gets his name out there. His tactics attract viewers, and in turn, endorsements from interested brands collaborate with him.

All in all, MrBeast is an inspiration to many upcoming YouTubers and a content creator bent to change the world.
