Mr Beast brought back his ever-popular Creator Games, pitting personalities like Charli D’Amelio, KSI, Addison Rae, MKBHD, and more to the ultimate test of wits. With $300,000 on the line for their fans, one duo reigned supreme: the D’Amelio sisters.
Mr Beast is back at it again for another round of his well-received Creator Games, a live event that sees some of the most popular influencers both on and off YouTube compete in a series of challenges to determine who the ultimate winner is.
Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” The winner of last year’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, didn’t return to defend his title however.
This means that there’s going to be a new champion of The Creator Games to crown, though the contestants shouldn’t expect the same format as last year. Instead, Mr Beast is going to change the competition with a “Wheel of Games” that will pick every matchup game.
ZHC and the D’Amelio sisters ended up being the two (three, really) biggest brains to make it to the final.

The D’Amelio twins had some help though. They brought two extra brains on board: their parents. While they didn’t take part in the final against ZHC, they were in the background cheering their daughters on.
To make it fairer, Mr Beast made sure that only one D’Amelio could take on ZHC in the trivia final. That high-pressure task fell to the eldest sister, Dixie.
However, she held her composure, getting the closest number on two questions to beat ZHC in the best-of-three Trivia final. They’re going to put that money to good use, giving it back to their fans in need.
“We’re going to do something on our family channel just to give back to the people who really need it,” Dixie said after pulling off the victory for the D’Amelios.
The tournament took place on Saturday, October 17, starting at around 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch the VOD in its three hours of glory here.
Mr Beast put together an ensemble cast for his second Creator Games, featuring some of the biggest names on YouTube, TikTok, and other online entertainment.
Here was the starting bracket for the competition, which featured some intense first-round matchups that include some huge superstars pitted against each other right away.
Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was expected to participate in this event, scheduled to face Addison Rae in the first round, but he had to drop out due to a Valorant tournament. He was replaced by George Not Found.
There was a ton of twists and turns for competitors and fans alike to watch out for. The Wheel of Games had challenges that range from “trivia to geography, spelling bees, and beyond.”
