As the challenge kick-started, YouTubers started taking their positions as per their comfort. Also, the contestants were meticulous in their movement as no pushing was allowed. To grasp some views from LazarBeam, Karl asked him, “What’s your strategy for winning this thing?” To this, LazarBeam replied, “I have a lot of perseverance in my spirit but Speed…Speed is making it difficult.” Because IShowSpeed was doing his signature screaming to catch contestants off-guard.

Unfortunately, Vikkstar raised his hand while simply talking to Jimmy, hence getting eliminated. Furthermore, Chunkz lifted his hand by having a deal with MrBeast to use his debit card with a limit of $10,000. Surprisingly, due to the reflex of high-giving Chunkz, IShowSpeed raised his hand. Consequently, getting eliminated.

There was going to be a jet and this one shall take a trip to the warehouse

With three people getting eliminated, MrBeast amped up the challenge. Surprisingly, MrBeast and Karl started towing forward the jet from the airstrip to the warehouse. With an “army” of people watching the YouTubers, no ‘raise of hand’ was to go unnoticed. And by steep turns and twists, YouTubers entered the jet. However, for the jet to fly, MrBeast had to take a seat out of the eight. Thus, hinting at another elimination.

To further amp up the level, YouTubers had to make laps around the jet. Furthermore, Willne lifted his hand after making an on-the-stop deal of $20,000 with whoever wins the challenge. With almost nine hours in and the jet in the air taking laps, only five YouTubers landed while touching the jet.

Jimmy amps up the challenge to filter out the fittest of all

Surprisingly, the contestants got their spare hands taped together. Moreover, everyone defined who would they give their jet to if they win. With almost 14 hours in, MrBeast taped a red line below their hands. Hence, whoever moved their hand below the red tape lost the challenge. Due to the fate of a coin toss, Callux took his hand off.

With less than a handful of contestants left, MrBeast allowed them to only keep a finger touched on the jet. With another toss of a coin, LazarBeam removed his finger from the jet. As the challenge moved onwards, MrBeast’s team caught Niko removing his finger for just a single frame.
