Women who seek a life partner usually look for a sense of humor or good looks in a man, but these men are richer than rich, so they don’t have to worry about being funny or handsome. With a cool billion in their bank accounts, we’re pretty sure that these guys could look like unshaven ogres and still get women in droves.
They have enough money to buy their own country, but they’re still retaining their status as bachelors – for some reason or another. With the zeroes in their bank accounts, we can only imagine that it pays to be picky when it comes to the opposite sex. Gold diggers are everywhere and we are sure these guys have seen their share. Still, they probably have their eyes peeled in case some nefarious women come into the picture to take what they’ve earned.
Below, we give you the world’s top ten billionaire bachelors who are under 40 years old and aren’t looking to settle down anytime soon.
10. Drew Houston – Net worth $1.2 billion
Drew Houston co-founded and is the CEO of DropBox, a service that is used by every company on the planet. The company has been valued at $10 billion which caused Drew’s net worth to skyrocket to $1.2 billion. He’s still a bachelor and one that is under the age of 30!
9. Jonathan Oringer – Net worth $1.35 billion
He graduated from the University of Columbia and went on to found the company Shutterstock. The company offers stock photos and footage used in commercials and other advertisements. He is reportedly the owner of B-roll footage of the people in infomercials, so have a laugh and add to his vast bank account.
8. Albert von Thurn und Taxis – Net worth $1.6 billion
While Albert is 30 years old, he didn’t earn his vast fortune just like the other people on this list. When he turned 18, he inherited his fortune of the 11th prince of his family, leaving him with the title of 12th prince. He now does racecar driving since he can basically pay his way to the inside.
7. Yoshikazu Tanaka – Net worth $1.6 billion
At the age of 37, Tanaka is a billionaire thanks to his social networking service called GREE in Japan. He is the most eligible bachelor in Japan, but a lot of people still don’t know who he is. He is basically the Japanese Mark Zuckerberg and GREE is the Japanese version of Facebook.
6. Nicolas Berggruen – Net worth $2 billion
Nicolas originally inherited his vast fortune from his art dealer father. For a short while, he was known as the “Homeless Billionaire” because he preferred to stay in hotels and never owned his home. He has since bought two homes and is considered a notorious playboy.
5. Jack Dorsey – Net worth $2.2 billion
Jack Dorsey gained his insane fortune after inventing Twitter and the payment system Square. Both companies are now worth over a billion dollars which makes Dorsey one of the youngest billionaires in the United States. Not only that, but he is handsome and a licensed massage therapist. #Hot.
4. Robert Pera – Net worth $2.7 billion
Robert Pera became a billionaire as the result of his ownership of Ubiquiti Networks. He sunk a lot of cash into the NBA team the Memphis Grizzlies alongside Justin Timberlake.
3. Eduardo Saverin – Net worth $4.1 billion
Eduardo Saverin helped co-found Facebook along with Mark Zuckerberg and the rest of the clan. After Facebook’s stock went public, there was a selling frenzy, but he held onto his shares. As a result, he is ridiculously wealthy! Jealous?
2. Jan Koum – Net worth $6.8 billion
Jan Koum founded the company WhatsApp which lets you message your pals using your cell phone. He was bought out by Mark Zuckerberg and is now rich from the proceeds of the sale. Texting isn’t unlimited for everyone in the world, so this app makes it easier to text your friends.
1. Alejandro Santo Domingo Davila – Net worth $11.1 billion
At the age of 37 years old, Alejandro is the richest billionaire bachelor on this entire list. He has a degree from Harvard University and sells beer. He is an avid art collector and is on the board of The Met. He’s a basic mixture of a beer and art snob, so this list has a little something for everyone.
These guys have a billion reasons why the ladies want to get with them, aside from their dashing good looks and inexplicable talent. They are eligible bachelors who just can’t seem to find what they’re looking for in a woman. We’re guessing that with their kind of money, they’re going to have to be picky.
We’re sure they aren’t looking forward to the expensive divorces and child support payments that await them when they go through the wringer of married life. They still have time on their sides, so they can still find a lady and settle down if they so choose.
