Usain Bolt is shaking, I'm sure.
Remember when Logan Paul actually claimed to be the fastest YouTuber on Earth? Maybe even the fastest man EVER? Well, he's putting his money where his mouth is. Logan is betting $100,000 that he's the fastest YouTuber, challenging a bunch of other YouTubers and social media stars to a 100-metre sprint.
Logan Paul just did the weirdest TV interview you will EVER see
Basically, this all came about from Logan's wild interview on Fox Business on Monday (July 22). In the bizarre interview, Logan claimed he was the fastest YouTuber in the world… er, right.
"If I'm being quite honest with you, I'm the fastest YouTuber," he said. "I'm the fastest entertainer on the planet. I could be the quickest man on the planet. I'm betting $100,000 that I'm the fastest man on the planet."
Now he's putting his money where his mouth is to the tune of $100,000 (barely anything considering Logan Paul's net worth...). Logan is headlining the Challenger Games on Saturday night (Jul 27) at Long Beach City College, California, where he will attempt an 100-metre sprint.
More than 100 other online creators will be competing there too and fans can snap up tickets ranging from $30 to $250 to watch their favourite YouTubers perform hurdles, long jump and shot put.
You can stream the event on YouTube and proceeds will go to charity. You might even recognise a few familiar YouTube faces there, including Logan's little brother Jake Paul and his fiancée Tana Mongeau, who will actually be getting married the next day.
