Bollywood music label T-Series had the most-subscribed YouTube channel for years after Felix Kjellberg, aka PewDiePie, conceded his protracted and problematic fight for the top spot to it. But now that honor belongs to YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, who posted yesterday that his MrBeast YouTube operation had ‘avenged’ PewDiePie by overtaking T-Series.

The news apparently prompted a rush, as Donaldson published a screenshot showing he’d gained 2 million more yesterday, which he said is a one-day record for the channel. The online tracker Social Blade now puts him at 268 million subscribers.

MrBeast is known for his opulent videos, in which his followers compete for huge cash prizes.

He's been uploading videos to YouTube since 2012 and has since expanded into the food business with his range of Feastables chocolates and burger brand MrBeast Burger.

Donaldson later used the company behind the MrBeast Burger chain, claiming that their "terrible quality" burgers were damaging his brand.

Donaldson also recently announced that he had struck a deal with Amazon to create a game show for Amazon Prime called "Beast Games" that will see 1,000 people compete for a prize of $5 million.

The YouTuber told Time Magazine in February that he earns $600 to $700 million a year — but that he doesn't think of himself as rich, as he reinvests everything he earns into his videos.
