When MrBeast drove for almost 11 hours to meet Fortnite streamer Tfue!

Yes, we are talking about none other than Turner “Tfue” Tenney, who’s also a known streamer at the moment. However, it wasn’t the case previously. MrBeast, who used to make donations to streamers, had decided to make his next offer to Tfue, back in 2018.

He thought to surprise Tfue by directly meeting him and paying him the amount of $10,000 since his account wasn’t working. MrBeast then physically traveled from North Carolina all the way to Florida. He drove for nearly 11 hours and eventually reached the location of the Fortnite streamer.

When he managed to find his actual location and went near the window of Tfue’s house, the latter was busy playing Fortnite, as expected. However, he suddenly noticed MrBeast, who was behind him, knocking on the window.

Firstly, Tfue couldn’t contain his excitement as he was extremely happy and at the same time shocked to see MrBeast. The YouTuber then told him about the situation and also made him the offer regarding the donation.

Jimmy told him that he would pay him $500 per kill he makes playing Fortnite. Tfue took this lucrative opportunity from MrBeast and entered into a new battle royale match.

Moreover, MrBeast then spent a lot of time with the Fortnite streamer at his home in Florida, and then headed back to his place in North Carolina. It was really an amazing day for both of them indeed.
