The MrBeast Riddle is a solved internet riddle that initiates by going to the video called "Solve This Riddle For $100,000 (Step 1)", the first video of the MrBeast 2 channel. The first person to solve the "riddle" would win $100,000.
He said he spent 100 days and $250,000 developing the riddle that would take hopeful challengers “all across the internet.”
Just one day after the initial video was posted, on July 31, someone had already solved the riddle. The exact winner of the riddle wasn't revealed, because they didn't want the fame, so MrBeast agreed not to reveal their identity.

- Step 7: Go to the phone emulator.

- Step 10: Scan QR code 188.
- Step 11: Go to the "following" section on Chandler's Twitter account and click on the "MrCookie" account before going to "ilikelotsandlotsofwords.com".
- Step 12: Type in the word "cub", the 6,969th word in the dictionary app on the phone emulator.
- Step 13: Dial in and call "6936197831" on the phone app keypad in the emulator.
- Step 14: Type in "www.yadgkutgwwdytic.com" (which is formed using the first letter of every word MrBeast said in his voice message: "Well, well, well. You are doing pretty good. Keep up the good work. Who do you think is cooler? Chris or... me?")
- Step 15: Go to "https://mrriddle.com/wraithhas2much2say" (a reference to Apex Legends, the sponsor of the "riddle").
- Step 16: Type in "experiments" in "I understand now. They used these Charge Towers to power the island for their _____" and press submit (another reference to Apex Legends)
- Step 17: Type in "moisturize" in "Does Chris ____?" Afterwards, the video "World's Hottest Substance Vs Coldest Substance" pops up and plays a clip of Chris posing and saying "moisturise" while covered in moisturizer at 10:25, a reference to an early MrBeast running gag.
- Step 18: Dial in and call "273953436", a number which is shown on a chalkboard in the MrBeast 2 video in Mandarin/Japanese with a "phone" logo next to it, in the phone app on the phone emulator.
- Step 19: Press "2" on the phone keypad to hang up.
- Step 20: Dial in and call "FREESTORE", or "373378673" on the keypad since a picture of Chandler and the code "FREESTORE" was sent earlier.
- Step 21: Go to "https://mrriddle.com/shakespeare/" since typing in "FREESTORE" gives you a recorded monologue from Shakespeare.
- Step 22: Pick out "subscribe", "to", and "MrBeast" in the wordsearch.

- Step 29: Find "https://www.mrridlle.com/onethousand/" in the sea of websites and go to it.
- Step 30: Type in "ZQRSEA" below the video in the boxes and press submit.
- That is the end. Submit your phone number, full legal name, and date of birth to allow MrBeast to give you a call should you win (though obviously, the riddle has long been solved and the MrRiddle website no longer functions).
