David Dobrik gives $10,000 to fan for finding his lucky $1 bill

Earlier in May 2020, David Dobrik put a certain dollar bill out into circulation in Los Angeles, offering anybody who finds it a $10,000 reward – and now the winner has been found and paid.

On May 20, Dobrik posted a TikTok explaining that he was putting a dollar bill out into circulation and that he had written a secret message and his name on it. The deal was that whoever ended up with it and contacted him would win $10,000.

This wasn’t your typical scavenger hunt, with the note being handed to a cashier of some sort rather than left in a hiding place, making it impossible to know exactly where to go to get it.

@daviddobrikHahaha im curious where this will end up!! First one to duet me with the dollar wins $10,000!!♬ original sound – daviddobrik

It didn’t take long, though, for the bill to be found and Dobrik to be contacted, posting just six days later another TikTok of him dueting with a fan who had found it, confirming the secret message and that she was the winner.

Then, a few hours later, Dobrik uploaded to his Instagram story the moment where he traded the $1 bill back for the $10,000 check, with both parties looking delighted about the transaction.


He confirmed in the Instagram story that the winner, Hailey, had actually received the bill only a few hours after he posted the original TikTok, with her mom handing it to her as a graduation gift.

The luck is truly unbelievable, and that $10,000 could go to any manner of things. If you were missing Dobrik’s YouTube content recently, this will make for great viewing – and a reminder that if you’re not tuned into all of his social media accounts, you could be missing out on tens of thousands of dollars.


David Dobrik reveals his “biggest regret” after losing out on $13 million with Tesla

David Dobrik has revealed the biggest regret of his life, after missing out on a life-changing amount of money with Tesla.

It’s fair to say that Dobrik isn’t exactly strapped for cash. He made insane amounts of money becoming a YouTube sensation, though his vlogs are currently on hold with the ongoing global health situation, uploading just once since the start of March 2020.

However, as they say, money breeds money, and David will have multiple revenue streams from which to continue his Hollywood lifestyle.

One of these revenue streams seems to be through trading stocks and shares, and claims his biggest regret has come as a result of this.

Dobrik’s Tesla has become synonymous with his content.

David has been known for his love of his Tesla in recent years, but it seems that his love is more than just that of a customer: he actually invested in the company three years ago.

While this looks like a stroke of genius, with how much Tesla has grown, David actually messed up big time by getting cold feet and pulling out around a week later for $7000.

In a TikTok posted by the star, he shows an old clip of his VIEWS podcast in which he reveals he ploughed $1m into the company. With just a $7000 profit in a week, David decided to crunch the numbers… and it’s not pretty.

He said: “I did the math and today, I could have sold the same stock for $13 million… F**k me.”


biggest regret of my entire life hahaha

It’s almost impossible to imagine the pain David felt seeing that figure pop up on his calculator.

Making 13 times your investment is always a solid return, but when we’re talking literal millions, the regret must be unfathomable to us regular folk.

Needless to say, Dobrik has probably built his wealth a considerable amount more since then, so he’s probably more willing to see these investments out now. Hopefully, he’ll never miss out on a near-$13m profit again.
