Mr. Beast takes the lead before the release of Beast Games on Amazon Prime

After six long years, T-series has been dethroned as the YouTube channel with the most subscribers. Mr. Beast has taken the lead over T-series in what he says is him avenging PewdiePie after six long years.

Mr. Beast becomes the most subscribed YouTube channel in the world

Mr. Beast has overtaken Indian record label company T-series as the most subscribed channel on YouTube. On June 1, Mr. Beast had over 266,707,995 subscribers compared to 266,706,387. It was a statistic that the energetic YouTuber shared with much passion on Twitter. 

T-series took the crown of most subscribers over PewdiePie back in 2019, a race that was highly publicized. Earlier last year, Mr.Beast vowed to take revenge for PewDiePie’s dethroning on Twitter. At the time, he had just 127 million subscribers, far less than his number today. He has more than doubled his subscriber count since then, thanks massively to the larger-than-life YouTube videos and magnanimous settings of his skits. 

Mr. Beast’s YouTube channel has been on a steady rise since last year and this moment was a long time coming. It was earlier in April when T-series realized it’s title was under threat. It had a Call to Action for its subscribers, in a bid to increase its subscriber count. However, Mr. Beast’s unique video ideas and his execution have been a superhit gaining subscribers at a rapid pace. 

Some of his most popular videos include the following:

  • Anything You Can Fit In The Circle I’ll Pay For
  • Would You Sit in Snakes for $10,000?
  • Press This Button To Win $100,000!
  • $456,000 Squid Game In Real Life!
  • $1 vs. $1,000,000 Hotel Room!

Mr Beast worries the YouTube subscriber battle will become an India vs America fight

Mr. Beast has given away millions of dollars in prize money to friends, and family via his non-profit charity organization, Beast Philanthropy. He also has other businesses outside of his YouTube content creation such as Feastables that have been selling like hotcakes off the shelves.

In a YouTube video, Mr Beast said he is cognizant of how a country-vs-country war can lead to some racist comments.

“It got a little ‘this country versus that country.’ I don’t think Felix took it there, but it even got a little racist in the subwar before. So, I’m very cognizant of it, which is why I’m not leaning into it too hard,” MrBeast explained.

While Mr. Beast has overtaken T-series, it will be interesting to see which of the two channels reaches the coveted milestone of 300 million first. With ventures such as Beast Games planned with Amazon Prime, Mr. Beast is in a very comfortable position to take that title.
