MrBeast Explains His Big Netflix Dreams

MrBeast is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious content creators on the YouTube platform right now. Since his breakout in 2017, MrBeast — whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson — has wowed viewers with the high-quality production value involved in the making of his videos such as a real-life recreation of the Netflix series "Squid Game" or building a to-scale replica of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. As a result, MrBeast has racked up over 100 million subscribers on his main YouTube channel, but YouTube isn't the only platform the content creator wants to make a name for himself on.

After racking up his huge subscriber count, MrBeast's brand has become one of the most valuable on the internet. As a matter of fact, the 24-year-old purportedly turned down a $1 billion offer for his brand. With a value like this, it isn't a stretch to say that MrBeast could potentially branch off from the YouTube platform and create content on even more mainstream services such as Netflix. And according to him, he already has some big ideas for what he would do should he ever get an opportunity to create his own show.

MrBeast wants a Netflix series

On a recent episode of the Flagrant Podcast, MrBeast dished out his opinions on many hot topics sweeping the internet today. Some of these included YouTube's role in the media world, the aforementioned $1 billion offer for his media empire, and even a hypothetical (and unlikely) presidential run in 2032. But among the more juicy topics  MrBeast addressed, his future projects were by far the most interesting. Turns out, MrBeast currently aspires to make a Netflix show so he could do other projects that don't necessarily fit on YouTube.

"YouTube's not great for episodic content," MrBeast explained. "So if I wanted to do something where I fill a stadium with 10,000 people, and it's ten episodes, and every episode we eliminated 10% of them, that would fit better on Netflix..."  Responding to a comment made by Flagrant host Andrew Schulz where he's speaking about the magnitude of a project in relation to the platform it's on, MrBeast agreed that certain things are just made for bigger platforms. "I have a bunch of episodic stuff like that [which] I would love to do on Netflix 'cause it's just a better platform for it and I'd love to hit a new audience," MrBeast said.
