Mr. Beast Says He was Invited on the OceanGate Titanic Sub Earlier this Month

Mr. Beast could have been on the doomed Titanic sub if he had accepted the invite to join the crew.

For people who don’t know who Mr. Beast is – Jimmy Donaldson, popular as MrBeast, is an American YouTuber and Internet personality famous for his YouTube videos that center on expensive stunts.

His YouTube channel, “MrBeast,” is the fifth-most-subscribed on the platform with 105 million subscribers. Beast also uses Instagram and TikTok and has millions of people following him on both platforms.

Jimmy, now popular as Mr. Beast, first gained public attention when he uploaded a video on YouTube in which he counted 100,000 within 24 hours.

According to an Insider report, “he spends between seven and eight million dollars a month on producing content across his YouTube channels and promoting his businesses.”

“Also, he spends roughly $200,000 a month on both his ‘Beast Reacts’ and ‘MrBeast Gaming’ channels, and roughly three to four million dollars on his main channel.”

On the weekend, Jimmy took to his Twitter to make the shocking revelation that he was invited by someone from the OceanGate to join the Titanic expedition in the Titan submersible on Father’s Day.

“I was invited earlier this month to ride the Titanic submarine, I said no,” MrBeast, 25, wrote on Twitter. “Kind of scary that I could have been on it.”

The content creator and philanthropist also posted a screenshot of the message that he received from someone from OceanGate, saying the team would love to have Mr. Beast join them.

“Also, I’m going to the Titanic in a submarine late this month,” the person wrote. “The team would be stoked to have you along.”

However, Mr. Beast turned down the offer and said a big NO.

It was revealed on Thursday, June 22, that the Titanic-bound submersible that went missing on Sunday suffered a ‘catastrophic implosion’ which resulted in shattering pieces of the unfortunate vessel and killing everyone on board.

The US Coast Guard confirmed that a debris field on the ocean floor had been discovered in the search operation for the missing Titan submersible.

In a devastating update, the company behind the deadly voyage confirmed the news of their death and said all five people have been lost. This means that their bodies may never be recovered as they have perished in the unforgiving ocean.

“This is an incredibly unforgiving environment down there on the sea floor, and the debris is consistent with a catastrophic implosion of the vessel,” said Mauger, the First Coast Guard District Commander.

“I can only imagine what this has been like for them, and I hope that this discovery provides some solace during this difficult time,” Mauger added.

Minutes before the press briefing, the company that operated the Titan sub issued a statement and confirmed that the crew has perished in an implosion under the deep sea.

“We now believe that our CEO Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, Hamish Harding, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet, have sadly been lost,” OceanGate said in a statement.

“These men were true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure, and a deep passion for exploring and protecting the world’s oceans. Our hearts are with these five souls and every member of their families during this tragic time. We grieve the loss of life and joy they brought to everyone they knew.”

The people on board have been identified as Stockton Rush, the CEO of OceanGate Expeditions; British billionaire Hamish Harding; French dive expert Paul Henry Nargeolet; and prominent Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son, Suleman.

The debris was considered as evidence that the missing sub shattered after suffering an implosion. Now experts have explained why and how the sub might have imploded and what would have happened to the five humans on board.
