While MrBeast’s net worth in 2023 is reported to be $106 million, his monthly income is estimated to be $26 million. The YouTuber has multiple streams of revenue, with the very first being running ads on his YouTube channels and earning money through AdSense. The second way of earning money is through getting brand deals through companies big and small, who want to advertise their products to the millions of viewers on MrBeast’s channels. The 24-year-old has other ventures other than his multiple YouTube channels which include merchandise like clothing, chocolates, and his Burger chain called MrBeast Burger. Let us understand these different streams of income a little better.
In simple words, Ad Sense refers to the revenue generated through advertisements that play throughout the videos. This is called CPM which varies from country to country. For instance, the CPM in Brazil will be lower than the CPM in countries like USA and Canada. However, it can be assumed that the average CPM is $5, which means creators get $5 dollars per thousand views. According to this calculation, for a video with 283 million views, MrBeast would earn 1.4 million net.
According to reports, MrBeast charges $1 million to sponsors on his main YouTube channel. If it is assumed that he charges yet another $1 million on his other channels, it can be said that he earns around $2 million through sponsorships in one month.
MrBeast also makes a huge amount of money through his merchandise. For instance, last year he earned $54 million, out of which, approximately half the money came in from merchandise. This means that he earned around $2.25 million in March through merchandise, which can be assumed as $2 million, just to be conservative.
If we add these numbers, it would mean that MrBeast earned approximately $5.5 million in the month of March alone.

With popularity comes controversies, and the same with the case of MrBeast. Although he has made a name for himself online with his video content, the 24-year-old has also landed in quite a few controversies over the years. A few of these controversies are listed below. Take a look!
In 2018, an American magazine named The Atlantic talked about the allegations that MrBeast used racist and homophobic slurs in his videos, live streams, and on Twitter for fans and haters alike. He apparently used the homophobic slur f—ot and used the word ‘gay’ as a joke or punchline during his teen years. Elijah Daniel also reported in a now-deleted tweet that MrBeast used the n-word offline.
MrBeast found himself in yet another controversy when netizens and fellow content creators called out to cancel him after he uploaded a video recreating the popular South Korean drama series Squid Games. He spent a whopping $3.5 million for the video, which went on to garner more than 350 million views. Despite MrBeast getting a nod of approval from the director of the Netflix series itself, critiques of his video pointed out that the YouTuber had completely missed the point of the show and glorified the wealth gap instead of addressing the issue.
MrBeast’s image as a kind and warm-hearted philanthropist came into question when his former employee Matt Turner took to Twitter and claimed that the YouTuber created a toxic workplace. Turner, who worked as an editor for Jimmy Donaldson, said in a now-deleted series of tweets that insulted him, abused, and bullied him daily. Following this, an investigation was carried out by the New York Times where they interviewed 11 former employees of the YouTuber. After Turner’s tweets came into the limelight, former employees of Donaldson also alleged that he was a perfectionist who had ‘unreasonable standards’.
Remember when Clubhouse became the talk of the town during the pandemic? During that time, in February 2021, MrBeast was accused of racism on the platform after he removed a member named Farokh Sarmad. The accuser alleged that he was removed because of his name. Sarmad stated that before kicking him out, MrBeast said, “I’m going to yote you Colin, thank you for coming up. Uh, I’m sorry. I’m really bad with names. I’m going to yote you as well.”
On January 23, 2023, MrBeast uploaded a video titled “1,000 Blind People See for the First Time’, wherein he paid for the eye surgery of 1000 blind or nearly-blind people. While many of his fans commended him for his charitable act, others called him ‘Anti-Christ’ and greedy, claiming that Jimmy was trying to profit from the disability of other people.
The first round of surgeries was done by ophthalmologist Jeff Levenson in Jacksonville, Florida. He said that the YouTuber’s acts could benefit humanity. As per Sportskeeda, he said, “If MrBeast can light a fire, and if we can get governmental and private support behind it, we can end half of all the blindness in the world. Without all that much cost, and with incredible gains in human productivity and human potential.”
