How Mark Zuckerberg Can Spend His Facebook Billions With Bravo
By the Numbers: How many "Mazel" hoodies can the stinking rich FB king buy?
It's official: Mark Zuckerberg is a multi-billionaire thanks to the Facebook IPO. Zuck is surely going to "Like" the fact that he's pocketed an estimated $25 billion (?!?) now that FB is a publicly traded commodity, and now that he's got all of that coin to spend, we thought why not figured what better place than in the world of Bravo.
So, with our trusty calculator, we wanted to see just how much Bravolebrity swag the social media mogul can now happily procure. Hey, maybe our Mazel hoodie will replace his trademark one now? (And make sure to follow for our Facebook page to be in the loop on all things Bravo!)
Just so he'd never have to do laundry, Mark could buy 556,173,526 "Mazel" hoodies. To put that into perspective, he could give one $44.95 hoodie to every American (based on the current Census tally of 313+ million) and still have 242,641,899 left over for his own personal stash.
And because this is a time to celebrate, Zuck and his team can break out the bubbly courtesy of Teresa Giudice's very own Fabellini! At $17.99 a pop, there's 1,389,660,922 bottles to uncork.
While they're busy popping bottles and keeping warm in their hoodies, Mark will surely need a soundtrack for his party. We've got the perfect duo: He could buy 25,252,525,252 copies of Kim Zolciak's 'Tardy for the Party' (a natural fit), or because it's also a sentimental moment, he could go halves and snag 12,626,262,626 copies of Melissa Gorga's 'How Many Times' -- because it's clearly time for some romance.
Speaking of Kim and romance, now that the IPO is out of the way, maybe Mark's got wedding bells on the mind and will propose to his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla Chen. And if he's already spending all of his money on Mazel hoodies and such, pre-owned might be the way to go for the future Mrs. Zuckerberg's dress. In fact, Mark could buy his bride 431,034 of Kim's $58,000 pre-owned dress. Hey, you might need a backup ... or 400,000 ... in case some wine is spilled.
Keeping the Kim train moving, while he's at it Mark may want to invest in a professional sports team, a la fellow internet billionaire Mark Cuban. Well, the Atlanta Falcons -- the team that Kim's husband Kroy Biermann plays for -- would be a good option, and Mark could fund their $85,935,125 payroll 291 times.
Now that the party is over, Mark might have a bit of a hangover from all that Fabellini chugging. Might he be interested in some Manzo-backed BLK Water, Zuck could order up 454,545,454 cases at $55 each. That's 10,909,090,896 bottles (at 24 a case). Hope he's thirsty.
And now, the honeymoon, of course. Next week's episode of Around the World in 80 Plates gives us a glimpse of Barcelona -- which looks fabulous! If Mark decided to hole up at the posh Hotel Palace Barcelona, he could stay 4,450,774 nights (at $5,617/night) in the Salvador Dali suite. That's 12,193 years, not accounting for leap years (our math skills have their limits) and not including any discounts that might be offered when one books a hotel room for twelve thousand freaking years.
