6. He’s a Race Car Enthusiast
Being the avid race car enthusiast that he is, Dan once made a mind-blowing 400,000 dollar drag race wager against fellow enthusiast and Supreme Court Litigator, Tom Goldstein. Goldstein with his 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia and Dan with his ‘tricked out’ 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra went head to head in this high risk, one-of-a-kind quarter mile drag race that left everyone’s palms sweaty and tensions strung through the air. Dan won the race clocking in at 10.74 seconds and a top speed of 132.88 miles per hour. Goldstein lost the 400,000 dollar wager with a final time of 11.54 seconds and a top speed of 121.97 miles per hour. This was definitely a great win for our man, Dan Bilzerian.
7. He’s an Actor and Stuntman
Dan has become a recent actor and stuntman as well. Having roles in the 2013 movies “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg and “Olympus Has Fallen” starring Gerard Butler where he doubled for Butler’s stunts. He also had roles in the 2014 movies “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington, “Cat Run 2” and “The Other Women”. Dan also pushed 1 million dollars into the production of the “Lone Survivor” as a trade for a role in the movie as “Sr. Chief Dan Healy” that the producers promised would have at least 8 minutes of screen time and 80 words; this contract was breached and Dan only appeared in the movie for less than one minute with only one line. The conclusion is that Dan is busy suing the producers of Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor” for the original 1 million dollars plus a 20 percent penalty fee.
8. He’s Bailed his Father out of Jail
Whilst enlisted in the Navy Dan once had to bail his dad, Paul Bilzerian-who was a prominent take-over specialist in the 1980’s, out of jail by signing over a third of his trust fund. His dad wasn’t very impressed with that and didn’t speak to Dan for 8 months and in Dan’s own words, in regards to his father, he says, “He was a man of principle.”
9. He’s an Altruist
Dan undoubtedly has an altruistic streak as well that few people ever see because of the image that he portrays. In 2013 he started “The Robin Hood Project” whose aim is to give back to the needy but only in 10,000 dollar installments at a time to avoid taxes in America. He has also helped a woman that lost all her limbs to make her home more handicapped accessible.
10. He’s a Cat Lover
Dan Bilzerian, built like a tank, chick and money magnet to the max, risk taker and gun fanatic by nature, ironically, along with the two goats, owns a cat called, “Smushball”. Who would’ve ever thought that Dan would be a the cat kind of guy but hey, Smushball is adorable and that I can’t contest.
