If you are an avid user of Instagram or Twitter, especially the former, you will most definitely be familiar with the name Dan Bilzerian. You do not have to follow him on the social platform to know of him or see some of the reasons why he has earned the reputation of the Internet bad boy.
Dan Bilzerian is a man who simply put, has achieved popularity through his ostentatious and controversial lifestyle. His social media pages are filled with pictures on unclad women and lavish displays of his wealth which is believed to be worth millions of dollars
His controversial nature has also seen him rack up enough lawsuits to make Donald Trump jealous. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at who he is, his origin and facts about his life as a public personality.
Who is Dan Bilzerian?
The internet personality, poker player, film producer, and all-around bad boy was born on the 7th of December 1980 to parents Paul Bilzerian and Terri Steffen. Biologically Armenian, he was born in Tampa, Florida as the first son of his parents. He has a younger, much-reserved brother, Adam Bilzerian.
Before Dan Bilzerian became an internet figure, the Bilzerian had developed a bit of reputation via his father, Paul who was a known corporate raider who made money from buying companies and selling them for parts. By setting up a trust fund for his sons, he gave Dan Bilzerian the tools to become the man he is today.
Not everything about Dan Bilzerian is outlandish or abnormal. Like a majority of Americans, he attended college at the University of Florida, where he studied Business and Criminology after graduating from Tampa Preparatory School. He also applied to join the Navy SEAL training program in 2000 and perhaps with a stroke of luck or a higher level of self-control, he might have been a SEAL, but he failed to graduate and was dropped from the program as a result of safety violations on the shooting range.
When he is not being a sexual deviant, Dan Bilzerian is a poker player who has featured in the World Series of Poker Main Event and has regularly played in high stake games.
His Net Worth and How He Made His Money
Dan Bilzerian became an internet star via displays of his wealth and a lifestyle that one could either be jealous of or disgusted by. He got most of his wealth from his father who set up trust funds for him and his brother. The headstart given to him by his father has been maintained via investments in films and real estate. He is also a professional poker player and has been able to record massive winnings playing with famous personalities like Tobey Maguire and Bradley Ruderman.
While it is obvious where Dan Bilzerian spends most of his cash, he has extensive interests in real estate with houses in Las Vegas and Los Angeles where more cash flows in from.
His Girlfriend or Girlfriends
When it comes to Dan Bilzerian, the question of a girlfriend is often a dicey one. At any given time, the Florida-born party man can be seen with a horde of girls and thus the idea of him being in a monogamous committed relationship is bewildering, to say the least. He is, of course, the man who reportedly slept with 17 women in one week.
However, the multi-millionaire stunned fans and followers in 2017 when he announced that he was in fact, in a monogamous relationship with Sofia Bevarly, a model whom he is 16 years older than. The age difference doesn’t seem to have deterred the Instagram star from committing to the model.
If you are, however, expecting this to be a traditional love story, you might be disappointed. According to Dan Bilzerian himself, he had had sex with three different women before he met her and slept with her, on the same day. Social media evidence has shown that Sofia Bevarly might also be as wild as her boyfriend.
How Tall is He?
As mentioned earlier, Dan Bilzerian came very close to becoming a member of the highly trained and skilled US Navy Seal. He only missed out as a result of a reported safety violation in the shooting range, showing that he passed the highly difficult physical process, all thanks to his extremely fit body and a height of 5 feet 9 inches with a body weight of 85kg.
Other noticeable features include a trademark black beard and dark hair with hazel eyes.
