Billionaire Bachelors

World's Eligible Billionaire Bachelors

When social networking site Facebook's billionaire co-founder Sean Parker got married earlier this year, he broke many hearts. So although the number of billionaire bachelors keeps decreasing each year, we've managed to put together a list of single billionaires.

Mikhail Prokhorov: He's been photographed courtside very often ever since Prokhorov purchased the NBA team, New Jersey Nets. Very handsome at 45, this Russian tycoon is quite a celebrity too. This 6 feet 8 inch bachelor is also a fitness freak. He works out for two hours a day, enjoys kickboxing, skiing and goes to bed at 3 am. Can you handle a hectic life like his?
Net Worth: $18 billion

Mark Zuckerberg: The founder and CEO of Facebook, Zuckerberg is one of the world's youngest self-made billionaires. And while he might be living with his long-time girlfriend Priscilla in California, he hasn't got her a ring yet, which means he is not tied down. Not that we're trying to insinuate something here.
Net Worth: $17.5 billion

Dustin Moskovitz: The 26-year-old billionaire is an American entrepreneur and the co-founder of Facebook. Moskovitz, who owns a 6 per cent share in Facebook, signed onto Bill Gates' and Warren Buffett's Giving Pledge last December, and will donate part of his net worth to charity.
Net Worth: $2.7 billion

Nicolas Berggruen: Now this bachelor may be kissing his 50s but he's nothing less than a young boy. The 49-year-old billionaire enjoys jetting around the world and partying too. Apparently he also hosts an annual Oscar party at Chateau Marmont. He doesn't have a mansion he calls home; instead he lives up to six months of the year at the Peninsula Beverly Hills Hotel.
Net Worth: $2.2 billion

Yoshikazu Tanaka: Founder of Gree, Japan's largest social networking site, Yoshikazu Tanaka is setting up in California too. Last year, the 34-year-old was ranked as 'Asia's Youngest Self-Made Billionaire', and if this isn't enough, this bachelor also loves to catch a good read when he can.
Net Worth: $2.2 billion.

Albert von Thurn und Taxis: One of the youngest billionaires in the world thanks to a sizable inheritance, Albert from the Thurn und Taxis is 27.  This German prince lives in his family's castle, Schloss Emmeram in Bavaria. And if you love speed, you should know he is also a race car driver who tours with a German auto racing league.
Net Worth: $2 billion

Eduardo Saverin: Facebook co-founder and Harvard graduate, Saverin currently lives in Singapore. The 29-year-old apparently enjoys football and hurricane tracking.
Net Worth: $1.6 billion

Siddhartha Mallya: Mallya scion Siddhartha, 24, stands to inherit one of the world's largest alcohol companies, an airline and an IPL team. His relationship with Bollywood actor notwithstanding, this bachelor is eligible enough, right?
Family Net Worth: $1.4 billion

Teddy Sagi: Apart from being the founder of gaming site Playtech, Sagi, 39, also owns several e-commerce services, an e-payment company, instant messenger service Messenger Plus and commercial real estate and hotels in Europe. There's more to this rather new billionaire on the block - he reportedly bought the most expensive home in Israel in December for about $35 million and also dated Israeli model Bar Refaeli.
