He won $258 million bucks
He’s got $28.96 in his bank account, three kids split between two women (not counting his girlfriend and her two sons), a shit ton of unpaid bills, owes his buddy money for a truck, just got a job working at a convenience store… oh and he doesn’t have his two front teeth.
He actually said he was going to talk to “people who know about money” to decide if he takes the scheduled payments or the lump sum.
I’m sorry and this is going to come out really negative… but this guy is screwed.
More screwed than he was before with less than 30 bucks in his account.
If his notable quote is about talking to “people who know about money”, someone is going to take advantage of this guy. It’s a shame, because he seems like a nice guy and hopefully that will help him out later on. But I’d be extremely interested to see what this guy is up to in five years and what his quality of life is.
To go from nothing to having everything in his wildest dreams (worth noting that one of those dreams is taking all the kids to Disney World)… that’s going to be a huge shift.
