MrBeast Wiki

Ava[3] Kris Tyson (born: July 1, 1996 (1996-07-01) [age 28]), formerly Chris Tyson, is an American YouTube celebrity mainly known for being the co-host for the MrBeast YouTube channel, having appeared in most of the videos alongside Jimmy. She has participated in many of the challenges and prank videos MrBeast makes and is apart of the cast that is consistently on the channel. She is also the main host of the channel "Beast Reacts" (formerly BeastHacks).


Kris initially described herself as a "country boy" (before her transition), growing up as a Boy Scout (although, it is argued that she was also a cub scout). In the survival challenges, she was constantly the one who did the most work. She is also a big fan of cartoons, which means she is sometimes really childish. She is also the most vulgar of the group and arguably the most "useful" person during their survival challenges. Kris shares some characteristics with Karl (such as competitiveness, the like for cartoons, humor,...), which makes them really close to each other.


Kris grew up in North Carolina and still lives there today. Kris and Jimmy Donaldson (MrBeast) created their channel in 2012.

The MrBeast YouTube channel has amassed an impressive following, with over 163 million subscribers as of June 2023. Outside of YouTube, Kris maintains an active presence on Instagram, where she has accumulated a substantial following of 2.6 million users.[4]

In March 2022, Kris has shown her nails getting done on their Twitter account, which marks as some of the first evidence of them publicizing her feminine traits.[5] On 28 March 2023, Kris revealed that them and Katie have been split for just over a year.[6]

In the video "$1 vs $500,000 Plane Ticket!", fans noticed and commented on Kris' changed appearance from previous videos. Kris confirmed on a quote tweet about her appearance that she has been taking hormone replacement therapy since about two months before the video's upload. She would later clarify that she would temporarily go by any pronouns and voiced support for informed consensual HRT for gender non-conforming individuals.[7] Though, she did also state the identity label she would go for was yet to be revealed.[8]

Sometime in early June, Kris updated her Snapchat where her pronouns would go be she/her.[9] In later 2023, she changed her bio to update her name, pronouns and show solidarity for Palestinians.[10] In 2024, she updated her name to Ava Kris Tyson.


Kris has two inactive YouTube channels: one which doesn't have videos that is called KrisO2 and the other with videos called Tysonboy34_. Kris the Meme God is known for appearing in many videos alongside Jimmy Donaldson AKA MrBeast, such as insane challenge videos, videos where they spend money, etc. She also has a twitch channel KrisO2_ where she usually stream with others.

In later April 2023, there have been rumors suggesting that she was fired from the main crew, such as the fact that she did not appear in the screenshots of three members of the Beast Gang filming in Paris[11], as of late April 2023, she appeared in the Beast Reacts video "Funniest Animals On The Internet!", suggesting that she is still part of the crew.[12] In the end, Kris responded that she wanted to spend more time with her son, debunking the rumors of her being fired.[13] She then re-appeared in the video Ages 1 - 100 Fight For $500000, for example, further proving she was not fired.
