After matriculating high school in 2014, Sofia went on to attend Florida International University, where she studied Marketing. During her time in college, she continued to pursue her passion for fitness and modeling, and began posting pictures of herself on social media. As her following grew, Sofia focused on building a career as a model, and eventually dropped out of college.
Sofia’s modeling career began when she was 19 years old. At the time, she was working at a Hooters restaurant in Miami, Florida when she was approached by a photographer who was impressed by her looks, and asked her to pose for some pictures. Sofia agreed, and the photo-shoot resulted in some stunning images that caught the attention of several modeling agencies.
Sofia’s first job in the industry was for a local swimsuit brand, and she quickly gained a reputation as a talented and professional model. In 2016, she signed with Elite Model Management, a leading agency with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. This was a major turning point in her career, as it gave her access to top modeling opportunities and exposure to the fashion industry’s biggest names.
Parallel to doing photoshoots for swimwear and lingerie brands, Sofia also worked on building a presence on Instagram, which led her to many more exciting opportunities.
As her career progressed, she began working with more prominent brands and magazines. She has collaborated with the fashion brand Fashion Nova, and is the brand ambassador of Bang Energy, while her work has been featured in publications such as “Sports Illustrated”, “GQ”, and “Maxim”.

He then began playing poker, advancing to the professional level in 2007. He quickly became known among poker fans for his flamboyant lifestyle, often showing off his luxurious cars, private jets, and exotic animals on social media.
Dan’s poker career has been quite successful, as he’s won several high-stakes tournaments, including the 2014 World Series of Poker’s $1 Million Buy-In Big One for One Drop event, finishing in 180th place, winning $36,000. His meteoric rise to fame allowed him to live a life of luxury, and he’s often seen partying with celebrities, models, and other high-profile individuals.
Dan has faced criticism for his treatment of women, and was accused of promoting a toxic form of masculinity through his social media posts. Dan has also faced legal troubles, including a 2014 lawsuit from pornographic actress Janice Griffith, who claimed that Dan had thrown her off a roof during a photoshoot, causing her to break her foot. Later in the same year, he was arrested on bomb-making charges, which were dropped after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of failing to extinguish a fire in the open air.
As of March 2023, Dan’s net worth has been estimated at a whopping $300 million. While Dan claims that he has earned the money primarily through gambling, his claim has been disputed by a number of people, most notably the professional poker player Doug Polk. It’s speculated that the largest part of Dan’s wealth comes from his inheritance. Furthermore, in 2020, the financial magazine “Forbes” reported that Dan charges nearly all of his personal expenses to his company, Ignite ltd., which apparently lost more than $50 million in 2019.
Despite the controversies surrounding him, Dan has managed to create a successful brand for himself. He has appeared in a number of films, including “The Equalizer” (2014) and “Lone Survivor” (2013), and has launched several business ventures, including a cannabis brand called Ignite and a venture capital firm called Bilzerian Ventures. Dan’s Instagram account, which he started in 2013, has amassed over 33 million followers, making him one of the most prominent personalities on the platform.
