Millionaire Philantropist and consummate ladies man, Dan Bilzerian is not living by anybody elses rules and we love him for it. If you imagine what Bruce Wayne’s life would be like if he wasn’t such a pussy (with a fetish for black leather gimp suits), then Dan is the epitome of life on the edge. Let’s face it, he probably has a bat cave. Even a weak heart does not seem to slow this guy down.
My greatest fear is that someone will break in & I won’t be able to decide what gun to shoot them withDan Bilzerian
A venture capitalist by trade, Dan Bilzerian (a.k.a. “Blitz”) has made a name for himself as a high-stakes poker player, thrill seeker and, more recently, Hollywood actor. His lavish lifestyle, penchant for danger and carefree attitude has gotten him attention around the world as an international playboy.
True to his nature, Bilzerian spends his free time doing extreme sports around the world as well as training MMA, scuba diving, mountain biking, snowmobiling and racing cars.
Bilzerian was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. Along with his brother Adam, Bilzerian invests in and manages business interests across a wide array of industries, including real estate, oil and entertainment. He enlisted in the Navy for four years and went directly into SEAL training. After completing 2 hell-weeks and 500 days of training, Bilzerian was dropped from the program for a safety violation two days before graduation. He received an honorable discharge and spent the following four years at the University of Florida majoring in business and criminology. Bilzerian left college after achieving significant financial success and focused his time on funding start up companies. Bilzerian divides his time between homes in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Diego.
He got kicked out of the Navy Seal programme for calling his superior officer a pussy after enduring 510 days of the roughest training programme on the planet. Even with a genetic Heart problem, Dan was willing to push himself to the limits of mental and physical endurance in one of the world most gruelling military programmes.
Sleeping with 8 girls over 7 days is pretty much a quiet week for Dan. Bilzerian is quite generous with his energy. In a publicity stunt, Bilzerian was horsing around when he tried to throw a naked model off a balcony into a pool, but things went wrong when she grabbed his shirt at the last second. His an instagram sensation due to the wallpaper of naked ladies he use to decorate his home.
Maybe a little on the excessive side here. After losing everything playing poker in college, Dan got himself back on his feet selling $750 guns for around $10,000. That’s quite the mark-up. One has to wonder whether he could have had himself a lucrative career as the basis for Nicholas Cage’s character in the gun running film.
Bilzerian played in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event. In 2010, he was voted one of the funniest poker players on Twitter by Bluff Magazine. And although he takes the game seriously he does like to play up to the media image expected of him.
Bilzerian, 32, is a regular on the high-stakes poker scene, playing in private games with the rich and famous where every hand is more than most people’s yearly salary. He has played in games where the minimum buy-in has been millions of dollars.
Bilzerian is a relentless gambler who makes some of the most outrageous bets that are regularly the talk of the gambling world. From swimming across an alligator infested lake or jumping off a 90-foot cliff to simply betting on a random person’s opinion or the flip of a coin, Bilzerian will take almost any wager. He made headlines when he competed in what has to have been the highest-stakes drag race in history, winning $385,000 at the Las Vegas Speedway. Bilzerian was driving a 1965 A/C Cobra and beat a 2011 Ferrari 458, which was considered at the time to be one of the fastest cars in the world.
Courage under Fire
On October 1, 2017, Bilzerian was present at the Las Vegas shooting and filming himself he stated that “had to go grab a gun. I’m fucking headed back.” In his final two videos, he was heading home, stating that “I don’t think there’s much I can do.” And although many criticised his reckless behaviour, when the shit hit the fan, Dan showed himself to be a man of action.
As an actor and stuntman, Bilzerian’s credits include “Olympus Has Fallen,” starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, as well as three films to be released in 2014:”Lone Survivor,” starring Mark Wahlberg; “The Equalizer,” starring Denzel Washington; and “The Other Woman,” starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton.
