On the surface, the fight between every age group to claim $500,000 seemed like a fun challenge. However, this fun video showcased the example of the old adage, “Honesty is the best policy”, to its most pleasing outcome. The first example was shown during the first two challenges. In the first challenge, many contestants lied their way through and were dishonest to other contestants. To even the playing field, in the next challenge, MrBeast gave contestants an option to vote people out. He also exclaimed during this second challenge, “It pays off to be honest.”

And the winning participant embodied his words of wisdom. For the final showdown, only the 40-year-old and the 52-year-old were the last ones left. They played a game of bluff for the prize money. The 40-year-old got to look at his briefcase. But he decided to stay truthful till the end and answered all the questions honestly.
