From having a song by T-Pain named after him, to announcing his bid to run for US president, Dan Bilzerian is anything but your regular actor/businessman - and he's worth a fortune.
Bilzerian famously sued the producers of Lone Survivor 2014 after they broke their end of the bargain to give Dan eight minutes of screen-time and 80 words of dialogue in exchange for a $1 million loan.
He was born on 7th December 1980 in Tampa, Florida to his Armenian father and American mother. He's said to have studied Business and Criminology for four years at the University of Florida, but it's unclear if he actually graduated.
Bilzerian's father, Paul Bilzerian, was a corporate raider on Wall Street who provided both Dan and his brother, Adam, with trust funds.
Dan Bilzerian rose to fame on social media. He has more than 30 million followers on Instagram (hence why he's called the 'King of Instagram'), where he often posts photos and videos of his lavish, jet-setting lifestyle.
Bilzerian is said to be worth $200 million (£145.4 million) in 2021.
As well as acting and being a social media influencer, Bilzerian is also a professional poker player and finished in 180th place at the 2009 Poker World Series, which doesn't sound that impressive, but it won him $36,000.
It's reported that, while his winnings in sanctioned events are relatively small, he claims to have won millions in private events. During one such event, the actor is said to have won $12.8 million (£9..3 million) and took a private jet to Mexico straight after the game to celebrate.
By age 36, it's reported that he had a self-made $40 million fortune.
In 2019, Bilzerian set up his company, Ignite International Brands Ltd, which sells electronic cigarettes, CBD oils, water bottles and vodka, among other products.
Technically, no. He trained in the Navy Seals and two weeks before the exam, he got kicked out of the program after a disagreement with one of his administrators.
