SEOUL/MUMBAI : Call it “The Bachelor: Moon Edition."
According to the website, Maezawa will begin considering the applicants by the end of the month, and a final decision will be made by the end of March. The deadline to apply was listed as Jan. 17. The post was retweeted more than 10,000 times, including by Musk.
The selection process won’t be discreet. Maezawa has commissioned a documentary by AbemaTV, called “Full Moon Lovers," to be produced.
“With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space," Maezawa said.
Maezawa has a net worth of $3.6 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He skipped college, moved to California to play in a rock band and started his own e-commerce company, Start Today Co. After making his fortune, he started investing hundreds of millions of dollars on artwork.
Along with his future mate, he’s said he intends to take a combination of painters, musicians, dancers, photographers, film directors, fashion designers and architects on a week-long lunar loop, where he’ll get to watch as they get inspired and create art along the way.
Last week, Maezawa announced on Twitter that he planned to give away 1 billion yen ($9 million) to 1,000 of his Twitter followers who reposted a message from his @yousuck2020 account.
