They live around the world, and one thing is for sure — no two of these billionaire and millionaire bachelors are the same. There’s a self-made tech guy who is somehow single while his business partner married a supermodel. There’s a handsome prince who walked his little sister down the aisle before finding someone to settle down with and live in his family’s castle. And all these young men all uniquely handsome, too. There’s an Irish redhead, a bearded New Englander, and a Russian who took his shirt off to fire back at Putin’s internet firewalls that blocked his business. So who’s the most eligible on the list? Let’s find out.
Irishman John Collison Is Worth $1.1 Billion
Not only is John Collison a billionaire but his brother is, too. The two of them moved from Ireland to San Francisco and founded Stripe in 2010. The service offers an online payment process for businesses. In 2016, the company was estimated to be worth $9 billion.
John is only 28 years old, with more than $1 billion at his fingertips and the rest of his life ahead of him. Before he even entered college, he was already a millionaire. At age 26, he was the youngest self-made billionaire in the world. He’s also a licensed pilot who loves hiking and running. Ladies, find him in San Francisco.
What about his brother? He’s single, too.
Patrick Collsion, The Billionaire Older Brother
Patrick Collison is the older brother of John and the co-founder and CEO of Stripe. A prodigy from the start, Patrick won the 41st Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition when he was 16 years old.
Now 30 years old, Patrick too, is worth $1.1 billion and lives in San Francisco. The MIT drop-out doesn’t appear to be as social or approachable as his younger billionaire brother, but he definitely makes the list as one of the richest redheads to walk planet earth.
The Bachelor Gamer: Yoshikazu Tanaka
Yoshikazu Tanaka’s net worth is estimated to be $1.27 billion and there are no signs of his fortune decreasing anytime soon. The Tokyo-native showed signs of genius in high school and developed one of his companies, SNS GREE, a social networking site, merely as a hobby when he was 26 years old. Today the site has over 200 million users, but the young billionaire is aiming for what else — one billion users.
Tanaka told Business Insider that he’s sacrificed a love life and a personal life in order to achieve success. “I’m 35. I haven’t had a personal life. And I’m not married either. So I’ve had to sacrifice that as well. Most of my friends are mostly married.” He then seems to laugh it off, “That’s a complete joke, the marriage things is a joke, don’t take it too seriously.” Well, which is it, Tanaka??
Prince Albert von Thurn and Taxis, Worth $1.6 Billion
Don’t let the photo fool you. Pictured here is Prince Albert von Thurn and Taxis, escorting his sister, Princess Maria Theresia, on her wedding day. The German royal inherited the family fortune on his 18th birthday and has been a billionaire ever since. He received his education in economics and technology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
Now 35 years old, he’s still single and loves racing cars. Prince Albert has even won championships racing cars and rallying in Germany. The woman who is lucky enough to get hitched to this eligible bachelor will become royalty and live in the family’s castle. Not a bad life.
Vladimir Putin blocked this next bachelor’s business online. And he answered back in the best way possible.
Pavel Durov Pokes Fun At Putin (Then Leaves For Berlin)
Pavel Durov is quite possibly the most eligible bachelor on this list. When the government of his home country of Russia blocked the messaging app that helped make him rich, he responded back in the best way. He took his shirt off.
In April 2018, Durov decided to poke fun at Vladimir Putin’s move to block his business by posting a shirtless photo of himself on his Instagram account with the hashtags #digitalresistance and #putinshirtlesschallenge. At 34 years old, the Russian gent is now based out of Berlin and has an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion.
Sergei Gordeev Has a Love for Architecture
Another Russian bachelor to make the list is billionaire property developer and real estate mogul Sergei Gordeev. He has an estimated worth of $1.94 billion and seemingly spends most of his time amassing his fortune instead of spending it. Gordeev has been deemed “the man who may save Soviet architecture” after purchasing iconic Soviet-era buildings like the 1927 Melnikov House and Narkomfin building in Moscow.
Based in Moscow, he’s 45 years old and has spent more time romanticizing about buildings than a romantic partner. Maybe one special person could inspire this bachelor to fall in love with something other than a building.
Bobby Murphy, The Still-Single Snapchat Founder
Standing in the foreground is Bobby Murphy, one of the brains behind the super popular app, Snapchat. While his business partner Evan Spiegel swooped up supermodel Miranda Kerr as his wife, Murphy is still an eligible bachelor, based in Los Angeles.
The Bay Area California native graduated from Stanford University and has an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion, as of 2018. At 30 years old, Bobby recently purchased a hacienda in the elite Los Angeles neighborhood of Pacific Palisades for $19.5 million. If you like tech guys and ocean views, send Bobby Murphy a snap.
The Dude Behind Dropbox: Drew Houston
Who hasn’t used Dropbox at one point or another? Drew Houston hopes you have. The 35-year-old is the co-founder and CEO of the company that allows you to store and share files. The MIT Tech graduate and Massachusetts native is worth an estimated $3 billion.
The self-made billionaire lived the true bachelor lifestyle (think very little furniture, Ramen noodles…) and is still keeping it laid-back and casual with a wardrobe consisting of hoodies, shorts, and flip-flops. And he still checks in with his mom, to make sure she knows he’s doing OK. Yep, he’s definitely on this list.
Robert Tönnies Is $3.1 Billion Strong
German billionaire Robert Tönnies gained his fortune in the food industry. His family’s company Toennies Lebensmittel profits around $7.5 billion each year, mostly operating pig and beef cattle slaughtering and processing.
Robert is 40 years old and a single bachelor billionaire estimated to be worth around $2.9 billion. His father passed away at a young age in 1994, giving Robert his seat at the table to run the business alongside his uncle Clemens (who he doesn’t always get along with.)
Gustav Magnar Witzøe Is a Billionaire Model
Rich, young, and handsome are just a few words that describe Gustav Magnar Witzøe. The billionaire bachelor is one of the youngest not only on this list, but in the world. At just 25 years old Gustav hails from Norway and inherited his fortune from his family’s salmon farming company, SalMar.
In 2013, Gustav’s father transferred a 47% stake of the company over to him, skyrocketing his net worth to $3.1 billion. Follow his adventurous and lavish lifestyle on Instagram, where he posts his vacations and modeling photos. You’ll be glad you did.
Zhang Yiming Is China’s Most Eligible Bachelor
Chinese women are vying for a chance to date Zhang Yiming. Zhang graduated from Nankai University where he studied software engineering, then founded one of the largest content platforms in China, which made him rich.
The self-made billionaire is 34 years old, and surprisingly, still single. His estimated net worth is $20 billion, as of 2017 and when compared to other tech start-ups, his business grew bigger and faster than Facebook. Basically the Mark Zuckerberg of Bejing, everyone knows who this billionaire bachelor is in China.
The Charitable Canadian Billionaire, Garrett Camp
You’ve definitely heard of, and most likely have used, Uber, but you may not know who Garrett Camp is. He’s one of the co-founders of the ride-sharing app, but often takes a step back from the spotlight and lets his business partner Travis Kalanick take the reins.
Garrett was the third-richest billionaire in Canada, with an estimated net worth of $6.3 billion, before moving to San Francisco full time. Also the founder of StumbleUpon, Garrett is a down-to-earth guy, and spends a lot of his time and energy into giving back charity. Somehow, he’s still single at 40 years old.

Like Basketball? Sit Courtside With Robert Pera
For whatever reason, young billionaire Robert Pera has a lot of fans, as well as a lot of haters. That’s probably what happens when you get filthy rich at a young age. The self-made billionaire bachelor worked for Apple before he went on to found Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. The company went public in 2011 and he hit it big time.
A basketball player himself, Robert used $350 million of his fortune to purchase the Memphis Grizzlies, and after he did, they had the best two seasons they’ve had in seventeen years. Find Robert on Instagram and maybe he’ll be taking a selfie with you instead of his dog.
Lukas Walton, Heir of Walmart Fortune
It’s hard to even find a photo of Lukas Walton, so you know this guy prefers laying low with his billions. One of the heirs of the Walmart stores family fortune, Lukas does his part by helping manage the Walton family’s charitable foundation.
The 32-year-old is still single and has an estimated net worth of $15.3 billion. Although he could purchase whatever property he wants, wherever in the world, Lukas lives a quiet life tucked away in the mountains in Jackson, Wyoming. Good luck getting a date with him!
CEO Billionaire Jack Dorsey Is One Of A Kind
Worth $5 billion, Jack Dorsey is the CEO of both Twitter and Square. Born in Missouri and raised Catholic, Jack isn’t your stereotypical rich guy. He has the style of a rocker, and even wore his nose ring while testifying in a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. (He was, however, looking sharp in his suit.)
If you’re into San Francisco, hit it off with Jack and you could move into his Bay Area home that has views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean. He’s been described as a “calm, thoughtful leader” who prides himself on building solid relationships. Psst, he’s single.
Billionaire Elon Musk Raises Eyebrows
At this point, you have to be living under a rock to not know who Elon Musk is. Most famous for co-founding and being the lead product architect of Tesla, as well as SpaceX, Elon is an entrepreneur who puts his money where his mouth is. He also has a lot to say.
The self-described half-Democrat, half-Republican socialist can’t help but ruffle feathers whether he’s talking about aliens or lighting up during a podcast interview. He’s been married three times before and is currently dating a Canadian musician known as Grimes. But you may still have a shot of living happily ever after in space with Elon.
The Artsy Billionaire: Joe Gebbia
One of the co-founders and chief product officer of Airbnb, Joe Gebbia keeps a low profile. Residing in San Francisco, the billionaire is estimated to have a net worth of $3.8 billion. He’s the artsy type, with a Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and Industrial Design.
It’s fair to say that Joe is a rare one. Not only in that he was able to become an art school graduate-turned billionaire, but the fact that his business idea came to him from over-staying his welcome sleeping on his buddy’s couch. Chances are you’d find Joe at a low-key joint in San Francisco, but he doesn’t share much of his personal life!
Louis Tomlinson Keeps The Money Coming In
Louis Tomlinson gained fame as a member of One Direction, one of the most successful musical groups of all time. Originally from the UK, the artist took his career to California and now works as a judge on the TV series that made him famous, The X Factor.
He’s now a dad to a boy named Freddie who was born in January 2016, but is still single. With an estimated net worth of $45 million, Louis is an unlikely young millionaire who says he looks forward to being a dad to more kids in the future.
He’s Single By His Own Doing: Billionaire Sergey Brin
Co-founder of Google, billionaire Sergey Brin is back on the market as of 2015. Whoever he dates next has big shoes to fill, as the Russia native was previously married to Anne Wojcicki, founder of 23andMe. The couple finalized their divorce in 2015 and Sergey held onto his $50.6 billion fortune.
Then again, maybe you don’t want to date Sergey, as the reason for his divorce was reportedly due to Brin having an extramarital affair with the marketing director of Google Glass.
Jett Lucas Is Following In His Father’s Footsteps
Son of filmmaker George Lucas, Jett Lucas is now 25 years old and shares his father’s passion for Star Wars. He helped out in the creation of the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and inspired the character Ion Papanoida in the Star Wars TV series.
George adopted Jett, who remains his only son. Jett currently works in television, on the TV series Chicago Fire. Time will tell if we can officially name Jett as part of the billionaire’s club, but seeing as his father has a fortune of $5.6 billion, it’s safe to say that Jett’s finances aren’t hurting.
