The media organization Insider shared an interview with Jeffrey Yaple, one of the patients featured in the video. Yaple is a 64-year-old man from Jacksonville, Florida, who had cataracts for two years and had sight issues since he was 15. He signed up for “Vision is Priceless,” a Florida-based initiative.

Yaple agreed not to have known anything about MrBeast before the surgery. Recalling his meeting with Jimmy, he said, “I shook his hand twice and thanked him out of gratitude, but I also chatted to him like he was a regular guy because I didn’t realize how big of a deal he was at the time. Maybe if I’d had watched some of his videos beforehand, I would have been more starstruck, but he was just like another kid to me. “
