Karl Jacobs

Karl Jacobs (born: July 19, 1998 (1998-07-19) [age 24]) is an American YouTube personality known for being a major affiliate of MrBeast since 2020 and has been gaining fame since then for their collaborative videos. He initially appeared on MrBro's Last To Leave Halloween Candy Wins $10,000 challenge. Karl is still part of the MrBeast crew and is not fired.[1]


Karl was born on July 19, 1998, in North Carolina, USA. He graduated from Fort Dorchester High School in 2016. For 2 years, he attended Portland Community College from 2016 to 2018 and studied multimedia. He started working as a salesman at Starlite Gaming from May to August 2016. From February 2014 to June 2017, Karl remained a review writer and editor for GameTZ.[2]

Karl has an old YouTube channel called Game Patrol, thats streams Roblox. He started streaming on Twitch under the username GamerBoyKarl in 2017.

He initially appeared on MrBro's Last To Leave Halloween Candy Wins $10,000 challenge in 2019 and often served as a camera operator at that time.

After Jake The Viking's resignation, Karl was promoted to an on-screen member and has often been appearing as a major member of the MrBeast crew since 2020.

On September 11, 2020, Karl Jacobs founded his own standalone YouTube channel. However, it was only made public when he announced that he has a new YouTube channel on his Twitter page on December 2, 2020. The next day, he uploaded his first video, I Hunted LazarBeam on Dream SMP!.


Karl is 5'11 (or roughly 180 cm), making him approximately as short as Chris Tyson. He has thick brown hair (at some point, it was dyed blonde) and gray eyes.


Karl is childish at times, often overreact when he doesn't get his own way. Like Chris, he is also a fan of cartoons, notably Phineas and Ferbs, Chowder, Teen Titans Go,... He seems to be quite average but is actually very competent in Jimmy's challenges. He is known for being very competitive, especially when competing against Chris, as he often rage quits when losing a challenge. He likes to constantly reference memes. Despite that, Karl is really close to Chandler and Chris.

Challenges he participated in


There may have been very few instances where he became first place, but despite this, he has often reached second place in the challenges he participated in. However, in these instances, he has become first place:

  • In Push This Red Button For $100,000, at 14:35 and after more than 50 presses, Karl pressed the button and the TV told him to give to his sister, Corry, $100,000, hence making him the winner of this challenge and his sister the winner of the $100,000.
  • In I Put 1,000,000 Christmas Lights On A House (World Record), when Karl and Sean's house was judged, MatPat, Quackity, and MrBeast all gave it a 9, while Damaris gave it a 10, leading to the total score being 37/40, a tie with Chris' team. For the tiebreaker, MrBeast picked a fan who was watching the competition to choose whose house was the better decorated one. She chose Karl and Sean's house, hence Karl's team won, and Sean got the $300,000 house. As a consolation prize, Chris received a $30,000 car.
