5 Favorite YouTube Challenges!

Written by Amanda Baltazar. Published: June 18 2015


Do you think you’ve got what it takes to take on the Bean Boozled Challenge?


What is the Bean Boozled Challenge, you ask? Basically you get a box of Jelly Belly Bean Boozled Jelly Beans and eat the jelly beans. Simple, right? Not so much. Each colored bean has either two flavors -- a good one or a bad one. For example, the flavor could be juicy pear, or it could be booger. If this sounds like something you want to do or something you’d just like to watch other people do, then I’ve got the perfect videos for you...






Incidentally, YouTube challenges have become a genre all unto themselves. Whether they are extreme like the cinnamon challenge, or a little more subdued like the whisper challenge (see below), the race is on to gain massive hits and a little viral fame. Check out some other popular challenges going around YouTube below!


Whisper Challenge

In this challenge, one person puts on headphones so they can’t hear anything, and the other player says something to the other person so they can only read their lips.






Baby Food Challenge

In this challenge, people try out different types of baby food and they try to guess what flavor it is, or just try to choke it down without throwing up.






Smoothie Challenge

In this challenge, there are 20 ingredients where players randomly take turns picking ingredients to put into a smoothie -- like chocolate syrup, tomato juice, horseradish -- and no matter what the combination, they need to drink it!






Tin Can Challenge

In the Tin Can Challenge, players take off the labels of tin cans and consume the mystery contents, much like the baby food challenge.






And there are five of my favorite YouTube Challenges!
