Check Out Mark Zuckerberg's House with Oprah

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 34 comments

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg stopped by Oprah to share some details about his usually very private life and you might be surprised at just how normal this guy is.

A lot of people might think Zuckerberg lives in a house with wall-to-wall hottubs and a live-in staff waiting on him hand and foot. The CEO has never before released pictures of the inside of his house. However, this week, as part of his plans to donate $100 million to the Newark school system, Mark invited chatshow queen Oprah and her camera crew to take a look around the house he lives with his girlfriend Priscilla Chan.

Though not many people will have any interest in Zuckerberg's Oprah appearance beyond the fact that he lives in a rented and modestly furnished house in Palo Alto, his interview is actually quite interesting and focuses on his plans to donate $100 million to Newark's school system. Oprah revealed that Mark actually wanted to donate the money anonymously but that she talked him into announcing his good deed on her show.

She also acknowleged that Mark had wanted to give the money at the beginning of September but couldn't because she wasn't on the air that week. The timing of the Facebook CEO's donation has led to speculation that he's only donating the money to combat bad press generated by the Social Network, which is hitting cinemas this coming Friday.

If you don't feel like watching the whole interview, skip to 2:20 of part two for the shots of his home and girlfriend.

    Shadow703793He has a girl friend?!?!?! Really? For the first vid, it was a 10-20sec commercial!?!?!...You should edit it to say 2nd vid.

    He's a multi billionaire, do you really think he couldn't get a girl? I mean did you really, really think that?

    ^ in that quote there should have read, "Check Out Mark Zuckerberg's House with Oprah"... but you know, not being able to edit your posts and all.. makes things difficult.

    Don't be insensitive, of course it matters he's pledging 100 million dollars to fix education where it is the worst. Do you have no heart?

    Oh lol. I forgot to put the /sarcasm tag.

    Which is ironic because China is one of the few places on earth that ban facebook and youtube. They have complete Chinese version copycat call Xaonei and Baidu. So I guess he just want to experience normal person's life. LOL

    Skank oprah. Never do something out of the kindness of your heart if you can get credit for it. She's such a tool. Who watches that gas bag anymore?

    Between the teachers unions, single-parent kids, gangs, and entrenched do-nothing bureaucracy, Newark's schools system doesn't stand a chance. All that money's gonna do is find its way into these people's pockets. You can have top-notch facilities but you can't buy a kid's interest in learning.

    If you guys cared to actually watch the video, you'd know he met his gf in college BEFORE he became a billionaire. Sounds like a top bloke to me. Lives in a simple home, drives an average car, and doesn't flaunt his wealth like the rest of the wealthy pigs around the world. At least some one hasn't been corrupted yet.

    I'm honestly really shocked that he doesn't have a home that costs a least a couple million. But I do agree with this:
    m123456He rents a house? seriously? Hes probably the 1% of people with money that do not go crazy with it.

    Clearly he hasn't spent much on his personal living from what we've seen in the video, but I'm assuming puts most of it towards the company.
