PewDiePie is no longer the Youtube personality with the largest number of subscribers: he was overtaken this week by an American star of the platform with very rich, very atypical and very diverse content.

PewDiePie no longer has the highest number of subscribers
Sometimes the biggest content creators give the impression of being so far in the Youtube Game that it seems like they will never be caught up. However, it happened two days ago. PewDiePie, one of the first Gaming Youtubers on the platform (he started in 2010), was one of the first channels to exceed one million subscribers in 2019. Three years later, there are eleven million additional subscribers who follow him but that will not be enough to prevent MrBeast’s crazy rise. It’s Reed, manager of the second (but also of Dream, Minecraft content creator who broke the internet by showing his face), who announced it on the social network:
For those who don’t know him, MrBeast has built his notoriety with atypical videos. He realises for example his own version of Squid Game with 456,000 dollars at stake, films himself being buried alive or even offers people to swim with sharks for 100,000 dollars. The video game is also an object of study for his videos, with in particular Among Us or Minecraft.
Top of Youtube? 229 million subscribers
Be careful though: if MrBeast has indeed exceeded PewDiePie in the total number of subscribers, this does not crown his channel at the top of Youtube since three of them display a higher number of subscribers. In effect, the T-Series, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes and SET India chains are ahead of MrBeast and PewDiePie but are not managed by individuals. They are respectively a music and television label, a collective specializing in educational videos for children and finally an Indian television channel:
T-Series – 229 million subscribersCocomelon – Nursery Rhymes – 147 million subscribers SET India – 146 million subscribers MrBeast – 112 million subscribersPewDiePie – 111 million subscribers
On the French side, the figures are far from the hundred million. Squeezie (17.6 million subscribers), Cyprien (14.4 million subscribers) and Normanfaitdesvidéos (11.9 million subscribers) constitute the top three.
