What are some YouTube challenges? This question will arise in your mind If your YouTube channel’s niche is about challenging various things or you are new to this niche and searching for new challenging ideas to make videos, then you are in the right place. In this blog, I have come out with a list of challenges to do for YouTube.
Challenges to do for YouTube :
I have categorized these challenges to do for youtube into 5 categories and further divided them into sub-categories.
Food challenges to do at home –
Food-related challenges are amusing to do especially for food lovers like me. You don’t need to go outside to make these types of videos, and apart from that, you are going to eat lots of food for making these types of videos. Comparatively to the other challenges, food challenges are easy challenges to do for youtube.
1. Spicy food challenges at home –
Eating varieties of spicy food in a day is one of the best food challenge ideas for YouTube because most people don’t eat spicy foods all day. Eating spicy food with showing no reaction is one of the ideas for the food challenge. But be careful eating lots of spicy foods will harm your health. This challenge aims to record your reaction while eating food.
2. Baby food challenge –
Another challenge you can try is to eat baby food and record your reaction. For someone, it may be delicious and for some, it may be unpleasant. Also, you may challenge your partner how much you and your partner can guess the names of ingredients that baby food is made of.
3. Big meal challenge –
If you are a foodie and can consume a large amount of food then this idea is for you. This challenge may cost you some money because you need to buy lots of ingredients to make a large amount of food or if you don’t know how to cook, you need to buy food from your nearest restaurant. You need to finish a large amount of meal at a time, let’s say you need to finish a 4 KG weight burger in just 30 minutes. Here you need to choose a bigger meal to attract a large audience. But be careful about your health.
4. Speed eating challenge –
Speed eating is another food challenge idea for youtube. Here you may challenge your partner or a group of people who will eat fast and win the same food.
5. Cereals challenge –
Eating lots of cereals at a one-time sitting is another food challenge idea you may try. Viewers will love to see you eating a big bowl of cereals in one sitting. For this, you need to buy lots of cereals and milk if you wish to eat the cereals with it.
6. Don’t Wipe your Mouth Challenge –
This is will be a fun challenge to do. Lots of ASMR and Mukbang channels do this challenge. Here this challenge aims to eat lots of food without wiping your mouth. For better results, you should choose food that has lots of mayonnaise or sauce. You don’t need to involve another person to do this challenge, but if you may involve another person it will be more fun.
7. Cinnamon Challenge –
This is one of the toughest and yet most hilarious challenges to do for youtube. The main goal of this challenge is to eat a full spoon of cinnamon and record your reaction. The viewers will love your reaction but I don’t recommend you to try this because it can be dangerous for your health especially for asthma patients.
YouTube challenges to do by yourself –
There are some challenges that can be done without the help of others. Sometimes it is difficult to find someone to do a challenge, that’s why I have named some challenges that can be done alone.
8. Spend a night in an abandoned house challenge –
Spending a night in an abandoned house may be the ultimate tough challenge to do, but it is not suitable for faint-hearted people. The main aim of the challenge is that you need to spend a whole night alone in a house that was left abandoned for years and continuously record your situation.
9. Living in car challenge –
The purpose of this challenge is to show your viewers whether you can live in a car or not. Living in a car for a whole day is not an easy thing because there is not much room inside a car and you have to eat sleep inside for a whole day.
Tip – To not feel bored you can do various activities inside your car such as reading books, decorating your car, playing online games, planning for upcoming videos, etc.
Challenges for YouTube with friends –
Below I have mentioned some YouTube challenges to do with friends because it will be more fun to do with them.
10. Try not to laugh challenge –
Compare to the other challenges, this challenge is much easier to do and there is no risk factor. Alone you can do this challenge but it will be more hilarious if you do it with your friends. The main task of the video is that you have to remain serious when your friend will tell you jokes. If the joke makes you smile then you will lose the challenge. You can also do this challenge by watching funny videos if your friend is not available at that moment. This particular challenge is trending right now on YouTube, many YouTubers or vloggers do this challenge by watching compilation meme videos.
11. Ghost Pepper challenge –
Though it is a trending challenge and many vloggers tried it but I would not recommend you to challenge it because I have tried this ghost pepper and believe me it’s so hot. However, it is really funny to see others’ reactions after eating ghost pepper. This challenge will be more fun if you try this with your friends. Be sure you have enough milk ready before trying this ghost pepper challenge.
12. Draw on my back challenge –
This challenge requires two or more people to participate and also some paper, tape, pen, or pencil to draw. The main goal of this challenge is to draw the exact thing that is drawn on your back. Here you need white paper and a pencil to draw and your friend will attach the white paper to your back with the help of tape. Then the person will draw something on your back, you have to feel it and see if you can draw the exact thing or not.
13. Coin Flip challenge –
This is a fun challenge to do especially with your friends. The main idea is to choose a dare whoever loses in guessing head or tail in a coin-flipping challenge. If you say ‘head’ and the coin comes out as ‘tail’ after flipping then you must do a dare as your friend says.
