If a real life Action Man and Hugh Hefner was genetically and philosophically merged into one being; then snorted ten lines of cocaine, you’d probably end up with Dan Bilzerian.


Bilzerian is an acquired taste, more so than Marmite. The muscular bearded man is a high stakes pro poker player, playboy, actor, stuntman, and it’s noted that Bilzerian attempted several times to become a Navy SEAL, but failed for a safety violation on a shooting range.

Who’d have thought the self-styled Action Man could be so reckless.

His heavy drug use ensured he’d suffered no less than three heart attacks before hitting the ripe old age of 30, and he's courted the law with one notable case that stands out, where - to sum it up - he threw a woman off a rooftop. The woman was meant to land in a swimming pool but landed short and broke her foot on the pool's edge.

Not all photoshoots go to plan when when Bilzerian is involved. Clearly. He is one of life’s natural gamblers; does nothing in half measures, not even heart attacks.

He calls himself the “Bill Gates of poker”, and here he has a point, he’s won over $50 million with his poker hands and Facebook, and in one night alone he netted a whopping $10.8 million. Absurdly gregarious he may be; stupid he clearly isn’t.

A quick scroll on Bilzerian’s Instagram feed, Facebook, or Twitter feed reveal the extent of his excess. It’s all guns, women, blue water, piled of cash and private jets. Despite the spectacle of wealth, however, he does claim that money or women is not what it’s about. Bilzerian says “it’s all about the freedom and being able to do whatever it is that you want to do.”

Well, women and money is definitely what he specialises in.

He also, oddly, owns two goats, which he says are ‘awesome animals’. His initial acquisition of goat-number-one was gifted to him by a poker player friend who Bilzerian had invested $2,000 in, and who went on to a big win. He gave Action Man a fat million.

Despite not being renowned for his philanthropy and altruism, Bilzerian also claims that he’ll run for American President in the 2016 elections. Oh my, what a show that would be to follow. It would be impossible to tune out.

He is a man constantly surrounded by boobs. Where he rounds them all up to join him on his escapades is anyone’s guess. Imagine his election following, the people holding the banners. It’d make for great media coverage. And he does in a way embody the All American Dream: massive financial success presented in an orgy of grotesque culture.

If you think that Floyd Mayweather is a disagreeable and unapologetic character, then Bilzerian will make you question what the hell that even means. Posting photos of piles of cash is rarely popular with the masses.

But after all is said and done, the all American Action Man is self-made as well as self-styled, and he practises just about every right that is owed to him - and often goes way beyond.
