Who is Jason Hope? Well, if you visit his website you will be introduced to him as an entrepreneur/philanthropist who supports local educational programs as wells as projects focusing on disease cures, scientific research, and biotechnology. He is now trying to boost up his profile by associating with celebs and is quite willing to pay for it. In fact he spent close to $500,000 in an evening on a birthday bash that included a variety of reality stars.
According to a report in TMZ Jason simply rented a lot of reality stars to add glamour to his birthday party. In fact the article even quotes the amounts each individual charged to make an appearance at the party. He paid $17,500 for Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Giuliana and Bill Rancic were paid $15,000 to mingle with guests and former Superman Dean Cain earned just $5,000.
Jason’s major investment though, was in a performance by Ludacris who put up a 45 minute set and was paid $100,000 for it. And more than the money the party was called ‘Ludacris Mas’ in his honor. There were other minor celebs who were partying for a payment like Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner, Aaron Paul and other reality stars, Stephanie Pratt and Lo Bosworth.
