One of the most popular YouTube channels out there, PewDiePie, has now dropped the title of the most subscribed-to channel. Now, MrBeast is the YouTube creator with the most subscribers.
As captured by Dexerto, the popular YouTube channel MrBeast took the title of the most-subscribed-to creator on YouTube on November 14. MrBeast surpassed the total subscriber count of PewDiePie, the channel that has held the crown of most-subscribed-to channel for years now, with just shy of 112 million subscribers as of November 15.
PewDiePieâ€™s position has been challenged on multiple occasions, including in 2019 when the India-based channel T-Series briefly overtook the subscriber count crown. T-Series currently holds the title of the most-subscribed-to channel on YouTube as a whole, with over 229 million subscribers. But MrBeast holds the title for a single creator (and his small team).
MrBeast is run by Jimmy Donaldson and based in North Carolina. The channel first launched in the early 2010â€™s, but started seeing success around 2017 when a video of Jimmy counting to 100,000 saw tens of thousands of views in just a few days. In recent years, the main MrBeast channel has been popular for videos including a recreation of Squid Game on a massive scale, Jimmyâ€™s generous giveaways, and starting the â€œTeamTreesâ€ initiative. Jimmyâ€™s success has also led to a chain of ghost kitchen â€œrestaurantsâ€ across the US known as â€œMrBeast Burger.â€
