"MrBeast commented on one of my videos recently asking me to do a chocolate review of his chocolate company. I replied and told him I would love to but I have three requests," Lee explained in an intro video about the collab on his TikTok page. "One of those requests have to be met before I can do the chocolate review. The first request I made to MrBeast has been met."

Lee's request was to find a struggling restaurant in Vegas and turn it into a non-struggling restaurant. MrBeast commented back, "Keith let's find a restaurant in Vegas to try together."

"That means it has officially started," Lee said. "I'm on a mission to find the best restaurant in Vegas that I can take with me to meet MrBeast, and me and MrBeast personally will try the food. It will not only be posted on my page, but MrBeast's page as well."

For those who unaware, MrBeast's TikTok page has 74 million followers, and his Instagram has nearly 23 million. Lee's TikTok page has more than 10 million followers and his Instagram has 461K. With numbers like that, the struggling restaurant who gets featured on both their pages will surely be set and no longer struggling to stay afloat.

The intro video continued to explain how the contest will go and what the winner will get, other than more business. "Whatever restaurant wins, the owner and two employees will be flown out to meet MrBeast with me and my family," Lee said. "And me and my family will try the food and make a video and post it on this page and MrBeast's page."

He continued to explain that not only will one restaurant win big, but they will also be helping so many others get the business they deserve.

In an update video, Lee explains how things have been going with the contest. "I did a series over the last week when I went to eight different restaurants trying to find a struggling restaurant that me and MrBeast can help turn into an unstruggling restaurant," he began the video. "While yes, there was one restaurant crowned the winner at the end, I personally think everybody involved won."

Lee contacted all the restaurants he reviewed to see how they are doing now after his review videos and all of them had big changes to report. Money pouring in, booths filled, non-stop customers filled the reports from the restaurants.
