The inspiration came from another more popular YouTuber, “Furious Pete,” (Pete Czerwinski), who has been credited with coming up with the 100-cup idea. He posted a video of the challenge on Feb. 11.
“I’ve been thinking about doing it for years now,” Czerwinski told CTVNews.ca in a telephone interview on Wednesday from his home in Mississauga, Ont. “In my university days I remember getting Timmies like every single day while I was studying and I would never win. So I was just like ‘I need to win’.”
However, another YouTuber with the handle “ItsYeBoi” posted what appeared to be the first 100-cups video on Feb. 8:
Either way, it seems more and more are getting in on the challenge and after watching more than our fair share of videos, there's one thing we've noticed so far - nobody's won anything big - but they all have won lots of coffee and donuts! Nevertheless, the videos are entertaining to watch.
According to the official rules of the Roll Up the Rim contest, the approximate odds for winning the coffee and food prizes are one in six, which means the YouTubers have been proving that claim with their results.
