MrBeast’s $1,000,000 Dilemma

Let’s say, hypothetically, that famous YouTuber Mr. Beast created a free $1,000,000 contest in which anyone could play, but the only chance for a winner is if one and only one person entered.

What would you do? Would you enter and hope you were the only one? Would you enter just to destroy another person’s chances? Would you not bother at all because you were so sure tons of other people would try?

And here’s the real question: Is it even possible to win this game? Welcome to the Platonia Dilemma, in which Kevin examines a mind-blowing logic game and uncovers the only possible pathway to victory: superrationality.
