Dan Bilzerian is living the life most people dream about. Check that: most peoples’ dreams probably wouldn’t compare to his lifestyle.
Bilzerian is a professional poker player who also is a venture capitalist and part-time actor. He’s gained fame over the past few years by posting pictures on Instagram of his surreal lifestyle, which includes partying with beautiful, half-naked women, firing guns, and traveling to exotic locations via private yachts and jets.
The 33-year-old, who estimates his net worth at around $100 million, was on “The Howard Stern Show” Tuesday to promote his role in the movie “The Equalizer,” which is due out in September.
But mostly they just talked about Bilzerian’s incredible life.
Bilzerian comes from a wealthy family — his father was once estimated to be worth $400 million and made his money as a corporate takeover guy following a successful run in the military and schooling at elite universities such as Stanford and Harvard business school. Bilzerian, like his father, did not finish high school and entered the military. He actually spent 510 days in Navy SEAL training before being kicked out two days before graduation.
The 510 days in SEAL training was spent over two stints. Bilzerian says the first stint did not go well because he entered with a stress fracture, and the second time he got a safety violation.
Because he moved around a lot in high school and was training so much with the SEALs, Bilzerian did not experience the sexual fun that he has now. And he’s more than made up for it since.
