Billionaire Boneheads

Children in Haiti literally eat dirt because their bodies crave the iron missing in their diet. But at least these two Billionaires have their priorities straight. Truly inspiring.

A pair of rival billionaires set a new world record Thursday night at Les Caves du Roy nightclub in St. Tropez with an East vs. West contest to see who could order the most champagne.

Zhen Low — the younger brother of big-spending Malaysian billionaire Jho Low — squared off against Winston Fisher of the prominent New York real-estate family. At the end of the night, Low was the “winner.” The bill? A staggering 2 million euros, or $2.6 million, according to an announcement made at the club.
Witnessing the revelry/rivalry were Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt, SBE CEO Sam Nazarian and Paris Hilton, who helped Jho Low celebrate his 28th birthday last year at a four-day party in Las Vegas.

The Low brothers are third-generation members of a distinguished Penang-based family involved in industries ranging from real estate to high-tech across the world.
Baby-faced, bespectacled Jho is known to New York club-owners for regularly racking up six-figure bar tabs by ordering dozens of $900 bottles of Cristal Champagne.
It’s Fleet Week in St. Tropez, and the port is backed up with flashy yachts and their flashy owners. “If somebody with money, particularly brand-new money, wants to get noticed by the Euro jet set, this is the time and place to be seen,” said one observer.
