MrBeast Shares His Near-Death Experience
MrBeast was present on the Impaulsive Podcast hosted by Logan Paul, featuring Mike Majlak, the Youtuber who stated how he was returning with his crew after shooting a video. Tyler and he were in the passenger’s seat but the driver was driving for an 8-hour drive back home. Jimmy Donaldson, midway through the return trip, stated how he started feeling uncomfortable and asked, “Can we pull over to a gas station? I don’t feel too good.”
But before Donaldson or his friend could respond, the driver’s head was “just bobbling.” Even though the 25-year-old YouTuber and his friend were shouting at the driver, asking him to wake up, he lay unconscious in the driver’s seat. They tried to bring the car to a stop with one hand on the steering wheel, and the other on the brakes. Luckily, MrBeast and his friend managed to bring the car to a stop at the side of the road.
However, that was not the end of the scenario, as the moment the car came to a stop, the driver woke up and stepped on the accelerator. However, Donaldson steered the car into a concrete wall to avoid getting hit by other cars. The YouTuber explained that “His heart just stopped beating… by all metrics he was literally dead.” Upon a thorough medical checkup, it was discovered that the driver had a medical condition, where his heart would stop at times.

However, when he was asked to share his routine so that others could also follow it to get closer to their dreams, it shocked everyone.
“So the way I like to work and I don’t recommend you guys to try this. Schedules don’t really work well for me. I am in the zone and I like to go hard. I am very obsessive. A lot of people will work 5 days a week they won’t work on weekends and Ambitious people will try to like restrain themselves and be like nope this schedule can’t work saturday can’t work sunday. That just never works for me. My natural instinct works best so I just work everyday, every hour of the day until I just burnout.”

He would often donate his money to charity, and collaborate with other creators to raise money to donate to foundations.
