This Flat-Earth YouTuber Is Refusing to Pay up on $100K Bet Proving Him Wrong

Y’all, I can’t even believe that headline I just typed. YouTubers and flat-earthers and $100k bets? We are definitely living in the future, though it’s not a version most (or any) of us could have imagined 20 years ago. I’m not sure how we got here, but here we are – and this story is about the most 2018 thing you’ll read in 2019.

So, YouTuber Flat Out Hero put this challenge out into the universe: he would pay $100k to rival Tuber Wolfie6020 if he could use flight charts to navigate a plane from Point A to Point B and from Point B to Point C before returning home, all with the exact same amount of distance flown in between the all 90 degree turns.

Flat Out Hero claimed that his request was “impossible, but don’t tell the globetards that” and that his challenge would be “the final nail in the ball earth coffin.”

Turns out, he was wrong (shocking, I know), but even though Wolfie6020 has proven that he met the challenge, Flat Out Hero refuses to pay up.

In a video from late October, Wolfie6020 showed a three-legged flight path with 90 degree turns, each leg consisting of 5,401 nautical miles, which is exactly what Flat Out Hero had asked for…at first. Because since Wolfie met the challenge, the bar has been moved several times.

First off, y’all, Flat out Hero “didn’t mean for the word ‘chart’ to be used as a verb” but a noun, and also he meant to say that the path could only be plotted on a chart without curvature.


Wolfie 6020 had originally used electronic charts, but humored the flat-earther by proving that it could be done using paper flight charts, as well – almost certainly while trying to keep his eyes from rolling out of his head the entire time.

In response, Flat Out Hero claims that even though he admitted the route had been successfully plotted, he “wasn’t convinced” it was flyable and that if the two set out he didn’t “think we’ll end up where we started.”

Basically, he doesn’t have the cash and never did, but hey. At least Wolfie6020 has the satisfaction of knowing he won the challenge.

He’s also up about 50,000 subscribers and in this brave new world, isn’t that worth at least as much as its weight in gold?

That’s what they tell me, anyway.
