He may be the King of Instagram, but his life story is considered too spicy for publication.
Dan Bilzarian’s new book about his debauchery, filled with sex and drugs, has been delayed by a group of squeamish New Jersey printers who walked off the job in protest over the tell-all’s “vulgarity.”
In “The Setup,” the social media celebrity’s book, there are detailed descriptions of many sexual encounters, elaborations on excessive drug use and his countless professional poker-playing tales.
The image problem is the leather-bound limited edition of the book, which contains 7-by-20-inch color photos – many of nude or half-dressed women – and costs $94.95.
“There has been a delay on the binding of the book because the employees are protesting and walking out on their shift due to the ‘inflammatory’ material contained in the book that they were binding,” says an official for Bilzerian.
“We have an odd situation unfolding,” says the email from a printer’s manager. “Several bindery workers saw the book’s content and quit working that shift for the job, according to several of my coworkers. This is a first for me but it appears that the material was quite offensive to some.”
The manager went on to say that they were attempting to hire another shift of staff in order to complete the task.
Bilzerian’s book chronicles his wild exploits in graphic detail, including all of the orgy parties he has attended; numerous sexual encounters with several women at once; marathon gatherings with barely clothed models on yachts, mansions, and private jets; and his love for over-the-top displays, weapons, and explosives.
According to the book’s description, it includes “wild stories (and even wilder photographs),” suggesting that it is rather outrageous.
Marques, who has over 33 million Instagram followers, claims he sleeps with eight women every day.
For Bilzerian, writing the book has been a labor of love. He stated last year that he despised the ghostwriter’s version of his autobiography, so he returned the publisher’s advance and wrote it himself.
“The book is a masterpiece,” he boasted on YouTube in typical brash Bilzerian style. “That, too, has gotten a lot of attention. They’re telling me, ‘You can’t publish this book – it’s too inflammatory.’ ‘You’ll be unemployed for the rest of your life.’ I don’t need a job, motherf–ker. I’m going to publish it anyways.
“People are going to have a panic attack, and I’ll probably never have any friends, but at least I’m up front about it and produce something decent.”
“From a young age, I was breaking the rules and striving to establish boundaries that didn’t really exist. I’ve been through some pretty difficult experiences, which is why my life can best be characterized as a roller coaster with the greatest highs and the lowest lows.”
I’ve been rich, poor, and again rich. I’ve met rockstars, rappers, movie stars, athletes, and DJs. I’ve been backstage at their concerts; I’ve been to their parties; and they were great. But it paled in comparison to the spectacle my life became.
“I’m going to break down what I learned about women and how to get laid with considerably less work. What works for women will surprise you, but once you grasp their subconscious mindset, my counterintuitive methods will make sense.”
“I’m going to teach you how I went from flat broke to having over $10 million in one day.”
“The Setup” is a book that “is like if ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ had a cocaine-addicted baby with Neil Strauss’s ‘The Game’. It is a fascinating read.”
In the book, Bilzerian explains how he became a member of the notorious Molly’s Game poker ring before succumbing to a heart attack as a result of snorting cocaine, taking Viagra, and going without sleep for days.
He claims that he moved to Vegas in 2009 so he could play poker full-time and paid promoters $1,000 for each lady with whom he had sex. He financed his excessive lifestyle with poker earnings and appearance payments as he rose to prominence. He eventually relocated to Los Angeles, where he began documenting his life on Instagram.
He wrote, “I observed how the ladies at my pool parties acted when a celebrity arrived on the premises. Fame was a means of entry. It was like validation and empowerment all rolled into one. And it also came with the benefit of encouraging women to have sex with me without much effort on my part. Fame was a whole system in and of itself, and it was also the only thing I didn’t have.”
In 2014, Hustler came to his home for a photo session with Bilzerian and two porn star celebrities playing poker. They decided to toss one of the females from his roof into his swimming pool. However, she fractured her foot and sued him for damages.
In 2008, the Prosecutor General’s Office in Azerbaijan arrested Bilzerian after he fired a rocket-propelled grenade and machine guns into a mountain after he had obtained his Armenian citizenship. It was a poorly planned celebration of sorts.
He became so well-known that he claims celebrities started requesting to meet him, including Leonardo DiCaprio, who he met at Art Basel in Miami. However, he states in the book that he was too intoxicated on Quaaludes to have a conversation with Oscar winning celebrity.
There were far more females, on the other hand, wanting to sleep with him — which he graphically depicts in the book with a montage of semi-nude ladies sent to him through sexts and explaining that he “took Cialis like multivitamins.”
Then there was his 2015 stunt entitled “presidential campaign tour,” which he described as a way to get compensated to drink and sleep with women. He also took Valium to get through the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which he called a “miserable experience.”
The book is chock-full of photographs of ladies in bikinis, in his bed, at his bashes, and on his plane. Bilzerian claims that he noticed an A-lister having a sex act performed on him in the closet at the same time he was.
“You can’t fake it,” says Bilzerian. “It’s all in the mind. It comes from having a passion for something, and doing what you love every day — not just when you’re making money. Happiness is a state of mind; it is not dependent on material wealth or any other external factors; and it may endure a lifetime if your thoughts are right.”
“Pleasure, on the other hand, must be fed. Hedonism, sex, money, partying, and self-indulgence are all sources of pleasure. It is addictive and works similarly to a drug in that it gives you an intense high that soon fades. The more you do it, the more you need to do it to achieve that same sensation — and after a time, you won’t even experience euphoria anymore. But you have to do it just for the sake of not feeling terrible.
“I had used up all of these highs for so long that I no longer felt pleasure, let alone joy. My most recent Ferrari did not provide me with pleasure for even 24 hours. I was desensitized to the number of women I had bedded.
“I used to think I’d accomplished something when these events occurred, but that is no longer the case. Objectives such As money, women, and power will never bring you joy. No matter how much money you have, you always want more. It’s like attempting to fill a black hole. You can’t fill a black hole, so there’s no point in attempting it. I’ve discovered that the things I enjoy most in life are inexpensive.”
“I don’t know what it is, but there’s something in the book that could be construed as objectionable material. I’m not sure what the issue is; maybe some of the pictures and stories are to blame. I find it odd that while they were binding the book, they were looking at it. This actually made me laugh out loud.” – Bilzerian said about any possible “offensive content” in his book.
Because of the current ‘canceled because they’re woke’ culture, he felt it was important to tell the whole truth about his prior actions. Bilzerian said “We’ve had a loss of freedom of speech in recent years. People are scared to tell the truth; people are too afraid to perform comedy. I’ve always been a person who likes to go against the flow when everyone is going right. People have been acting like wounded animals recently, in my opinion.”
“It’s the guys who lie, deceive, or cheat on women that cause the problems. In the long run being honest and upfront saves you a lot of hassle and pain. I think that women appreciate it because honesty is important to me in LA. Everyone is just s–t in LA, so for me being truthful is essential.”
A YouTuber from Utah has been arrested and charged with accepting fraudulent claims from AAA.
A hurricane man known for a popular YouTube channel called “Matt’s Off Road Recovery” has been charged with insurance fraud and accused of defrauding AAA through his firm, Winder Towing.
The arraignment for Matthew David Wetzel, 46, who was charged in late October with one count of making a false or fraudulent insurance claim, a second degree felony, is scheduled for next week. AAA is accused of paying more than $15,000 to Winder Towing in order to cover allegations made with known misrepresentations between January 2019 and August 2020.
According to charging papers, the Utah Insurance Fraud Division was contacted by a consumer with a complaint about AAA. After an investigation, the division determined that many of the claims made to AAA had significant errors regarding the claimed services or tow locations, according to court documents.
In one case, AAA covered three claims for a vehicle tow to Salt Lake City, totaling $2,800. The claim recipient told the Utah Insurance Fraud Division that his automobiles were not towed as he had stated in the claims. The individual agreed to receive construction supplies from Wetzel and the unnamed person submitted claims to AAA instead of paying Wetzel directly, according to the allegations.
According to the allegations, Wetzel accepted responsibility for fraudulent claims in a phone conversation, stating that he had supplied towing services to the individual on separate occasions and asking him to file an AAA claim rather of requesting payment or billing the customer at the time of service.
According to the complaint, Wetzel also allegedly stated that he would provide services without immediately billing the person, then later ask them to submit a claim.
“According to the investigator, Wetzel said he never completed a project that did not have a real service associated with it,” according to the report.
In another case, charging documents claim that Wetzel assisted with a tow for someone who did not have an AAA membership. According to the complaint, Wetzel advised the individual to join AAA, wait a few days before filing a claim, and so on. The paperwork claims Wetzel advised the customer to obtain an AAA membership, wait a few days before filing a claim, and so on. According to authorities in Apple Valley, California, charges were filed for a tow from Las Vegas to Washington County when the actual tow was from Apple Valley.
The third instance of fraud charged in the accusations was for an off-road tow of a Polaris RZR, which is not covered by AAA, according to the document. The owner of the RZR reportedly utilized his buddy’s AAA membership and stated that Wetzel’s business towed a truck rather than the RZR.
Video of the tow and Wetzel speaking to the owners was recorded, according on the paper, then posted to Wetzel’s YouTube channel, which features videos of off-road tows.
The channel has nearly 900,000 subscribers.
A Norwegian YouTuber is said to have perished after tumbling into a lake while on a filming journey — only days before his 57th birthday in a video.
According to reports and a Facebook post from his reported partner, the Norwegian YouTuber known as “apetor,” whose real name is Tor Eckhoff, died after he fell into an ice lake while on a trip to shoot a video.
According to the Norwegian news source Verdans Gang, an American-born Norwegian died on Saturday after he fell into the water at Jakobs Dam near Kongsberg on Friday. He was 57 years old.

According to Verdens Gang, Eckhoff lived with Tove Skjerven, who stated in a Facebook post on the “apetor” page on Sunday that Eckhoff was going on a vacation to film himself ice skating for a video.
Skjerven wrote in the blog, which is in English, that divers rescued Eckhoff from the cold water and took him to a hospital. Despite efforts to save his life, he died on Saturday after doctors “turned off all the machines that had kept your body going,” Skjerven wrote.
On Saturday, police in Norway’s South-East Police District said that firefighters had rescued a man in his 50s from Kongsberg who had fallen through the ice into the water and that a rescue helicopter was transporting him to Ullevål hospital.
The South-East Police District declined to answer questions, stating that it is “unable to discuss an ongoing investigation.”
In his “About” section on his YouTube channel, Eckhoff stated that he was born in 1964, resides in the coastal city of Sandefjord, and works as a painter. He claimed to have gained 200,000 subscribers in August 2018 and 1 million followers last December, according to the page. According to the profile, the channel was established in October 2006; only a year after 2005 when the platform opened.
In his most recent video, which has been viewed over 1 million times and liked 57,000 times, Eckhoff joyfully guzzled alcohol while strolling around outside kissing a tree and lying in a tub of murky water. People are mourning him by commenting that they’re remembering all the time they spent watching his videos and hoping he “rests in peace.”
Skjerven was also well-known on Instagram, where he had 66,000 followers and posted images from his travels. Skjerven did not respond to a request for comment.
