MrBeast has overtaken T-Series as the largest YouTube channel in a long-running battle for the most subscribers.

Indian music label T-Series, which uploads trailers and music videos, held the record for largest YouTube channel for five years before being toppled on Sunday.

MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, was already the most followed individual.

But the 26-year-old has now made platform history with a seemingly unassailable 269 million subscribers, dethroning T-Series and placing it head and shoulders above everything else.

Across nearly 800 videos, MrBeast has made a name for himself with massive stunts, including giving away private islands, being buried alive and staging a real-life version of the Netflix hit Squid Game.

In a follow-up post, MrBeast said his channel broke the record with its largest daily increase in subscribers, which increased by more than 2 million on Saturday.

T-Series initially set the record in 2019 by overtaking PewDiePie – to which the Swedish YouTuber said “all it took was a huge undertaking with every Bollywood song” in a clip explaining his defeat.

End of Twitter content

MrBeast having become the most subscribed individual and channel on YouTube means he has further expanded his hold and wealth on the platform.

He has several other channels dedicated to his gaming, philanthropy, and reactions to other content, each representing tens of millions of subscribers.

“Don’t email me asking for money, I give money because it makes me happy,” his channel description explains to viewers, referring to the amount of money – measured in millions – which he has distributed during his career on YouTube.

A video he posted in April saw one person win $250,000 (£196,000).

Elon Musk, who encouraged MrBeast and other video creators to post on his X platform (formerly Twitter), was among those who congratulated him.

Making X a more attractive platform for creators has been a key part of Mr Musk’s strategy to make the platform profitable, and the YouTuber revealed in January that he had made $250,000 from first video published on X.
