Anything You Can Fit in The Circle, I’ll Pay For
In various shops, friends, fans and random strangers win everything they can fit in a circle. They collect items in the store and try to stack up as much as they can in the small space. The video at times becomes unexpectedly moving when participants explain their personal circumstances.
I Ate a $70,000 Golden Pizza
MrBeast and his friends eat different kinds of food increasing in price. Starting with a $1 slice of pizza, they go through $8 burgers, $16 chicken wings, a $125 milkshake, a $2,000 steak and $5,000 tacos, all the way up to a $70,000 pizza, made with edible gold leaves and topped with caviar.
Last to Leave $800,000 Island Keeps It
Ten contestants try to complete ten challenges to win a small island in the Bahamas, including a treasure hunt, hide-and-seek and a coconut toss. Chandler — who never wins anything — surprises everyone by winning. He names the island Jeff, but eventually has to sell it because he cannot pay the taxes.
Finger on the App
Not a video, but a mobile game. The contestant who kept their finger on the app on their mobile phone longest would win £25,000. After three days, four contestants remained and MrBeast called off the competition, giving each $20,000. Finger on the App 2 launched in 2021 and a contestant going by the nickname Swagbacon123 won $100,000, after two days and three hours.
