“I knew of MrBeast. I knew the great things he was doing but I was also, from a psychological perspective, curious, like are these people playing it up, do they have an alter ego?” she said.
According to Booysen, Donaldson was “super nice and very down to earth” in person, and he started asking her lots of questions.
