James Stephen 'Jimmy' Donaldson, commonly known as MrBeast, is an American YouTuber and internet personality. He rose to fame through his meticulously produced videos showcasing intricate challenges and generous giveaways. As of 2023, he holds the record for being the most-subscribed individual on YouTube.

Donaldson commenced his YouTube journey in 2012 at the tender age of 13, operating under the moniker 'MrBeast6000.' He garnered considerable attention in 2017 with his 'counting to 100,000' video. Over time, his content evolved to become more elaborate and extravagant, featuring daring stunts, philanthropic endeavors, and imaginative challenges.

On January 23, the American YouTuber and online personality used X (previously known as Twitter) to declare that he's offering $25,000 for enjoyment to 10 random individuals who would share his announcement and follow him on the platform. He mentioned that he will select the winners within 72 hours.

“I’m gonna give 10 random people that repost this and follow me $25,000 for fun (the $250,000 my X video made),” he said on his X post.

“I’ll pick the winners in 72 hours.”

“This is now the most reposted post in history 😮,” he added.

His X post garnered over 3.8 million reposts, and one of the fortunate recipients is a Filipina using the handle @xelaquimson1. In a series of posts, the Filipino winner expressed her overwhelming joy at winning such a substantial sum simply by sharing his post/tweet.

On January 26, MrBeast announced the winners including the Pinay netizen.

“Here are the winners of the $250,000 giveaway! They each will receive $25,000 :D,” he said, tagging the X users that he had chosen.

The netizen couldn't believe it because she instantly became a millionaire.

In an X post, she said ‘DI AKO MAKAPANIWALA!!!!!!’ In another post, she wrote ‘THIS IS SO UNREAL!!’ In her latest post, she said ‘Madaming stray cats & dogs ang makaka kain!!!’

Meanwhile, there is no update yet on whether MrBeast has already given the prizes to the winners.
