Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is bringing back his record-breaking YouTube Originals event, The Creator Games, for a third installment.

Taking place at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, the tournament will host: Airrack, Bella Poarch, Larray, Lexi Rivera, Logan Paul, Mark Rober, MatPat, Pierson, Preston, Quackity, Rosanna Pansino, Ryan Trahan, Sofie Dossi, Zach King, and ZHC.
The 10 winners of the first-round challenges on Dec. 16 – including a game of tag with track and field Olympian Kenny Bednarek, a talent competition hosted by Dr. Phil, a hunt for the prize money, and a target challenge with mini-creator dolls – will advance to part two, which is an extreme game of hide-and-seek set for Dec. 18.
The Creator Games was initially conceived by Donaldson and his manager Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media, which is also producing the event with Fly On The Wall Entertainment – the studio behind Big Brother and other YouTube Originals like Katy Perry’s Witness World Wide and Will Smith: The Jump.
The first iteration of Creator Games, a rock-paper-scissors competition, became YouTube’s most-watched live original ever, with 662,000 concurrent viewers, The sequel, a live trivia competition, subsequently broke that record with 1 million concurrents.
