Imagine having so much money, you don’t know what to do with it.
You have guys like Jeff Bezos, who just flew to outer space and came back just because he can, and then there’s guys like Guy Fieri… who continuously uses his money for good.
Guy Fieri has become one of the most recognizable, if not the most recognizable, face in the food industry.
With all of the fame, Mr. Flavortown himself has garnered a shit ton of money along the way… like an $80 million contract with the Food Network type of rich.
So what does he do with his money?
Well, we can’t be for certain, but what we do know is that the man dropped $30K on pigs during an auction near his hometown of Santa Rosa, California.
According to the Press Democrat, Fieri decided to see what all of the hollerin’ was about when he received a letter from a student that belonged to a local branch of the Future Farmers of America. The student asked him to stop by the livestock auction at the Sonoma County Fair, and boy, Fieri didn’t just stop by…
Fieri was accompanied by a few friends, and they all placed the winning bid on 16 different pigs, which included a single pig that ran him a cool $10 grand.
However, it was all for a great cause though as the hogs will all be donated to charity, so it’s great to see the money being put to good use.
And remember, this is also the guy that quietly raised over $20 million for restaurant workers during the pandemic.
