16. David Choe Reveals His $200 Million Facebook Stock Options
Date: February 1, 2012
When David Choe revealed that he declined money in 2005 to paint the walls of Facebook's first office in Palo Alto, California in exchange for stocks, it was a big deal. That prescient decision made him a multi-millionaire earlier this year in the wake of Facebook's IPO. He discussed how he felt about it with Barbara Walters on February 8th and hilariously called her "Babs-1" the whole time.
