I Know Everything - Chapter 617
Chapter 617: Earning a lot of money from foreigners.
Chen Huan was the most popular person for the last two months.
People’s attention on him became even higher when he won the NBA Championship and announced his withdrawal to attend college.
It wasn’t only ball fans but other people also talked about this genius.
At this moment, the details of the contracts offered by the NBA to Chen Huan were leaked.
Most people couldn’t understand the decision.
Why would Chen Huan so easily refuse the opportunity to make a billion dollars in 10 years with the salary and endorsement deals to become one of the richest people in the world.
99.99% of the people couldn’t even earn 100 million dollars in their entire life, let alone 1 billion dollars.
Anyone who earned 1 billion dollars could retire immediately and lead a comfortable life.
Chen Huan would only be 28 years old ten years later and retiring at that age would be a little more appropriate.
However, Chen Huan didn’t do this or even choose to earn 30 million by just playing in the playoff.
This made people feel Chen Huan was weird.
Adding the fact he solved Fermat’s Theorem, everyone thought him as a researcher focusing on research.
However, it was revealed it wasn’t going to a university for mathematics but to an agriculture school to study agriculture.
People’s thoughts were completely overturned and didn’t know what to think of him.
However, no matter what was said, people’s attention on him was on the rise.
It happened that the NBA season was over and there was nothing to talk about so the attention shifted to Chen Huan who made history.
People even jokingly said that “Chen Huan is undefeated and averaged a quintuple double in his career and won all the championships.”
This joke originated from China but it soon also became popular in the US.
Many people on social media characterized this on Chen Huan’s stats.
With so many people talking about Chen Huan, companies obviously started to seek Chen Huan to advertise for them.
Chen Huan received many endorsement offers while he was packing up to go back to China.
They were first-class international brands.
There were the credit card giant Visa, catering industry giant McDonald, one of the two beverage kings Pepsi and BMW.
They were very generous with their offers for endorsement. For example, the highest offer was from Visa and it was 8 million while the lowest BMW offered 3 million dollars.
They were also very cautious as they would only sign him for a single year and wait until then for renewal.
To be more clear, they were worried that the hype around Chen Huan would die with time and that further investment would lose them money.
So Wang Zhen and Zhang Yaya both encouraged Chen Huan to accept and earn money from those foreigners.
Chen Huan also thought this was the right mood.
Earning foreigners money and taking it back to the country to help those in need, this was definitely an achievement.
So Chen Huan borrowed Kobe’s lawyer and signed four contracts in two days to earn 20 million dollars.
Chen Huan could return to China the next week as long as he shot 7 different commercials.
Another version of those commercials would be filmed around December in China and then it could be considered done.
Those contracts were quickly leaked by reporters.
The Americans were amazed by how Chen Huan earned 60 million dollars in just over two months, which made him in the top 5 athlete earnings this year.
It was also because Chen Huan didn’t sign the next contract otherwise his earnings would go up in the hundreds of million and no athlete would be able to compete.
In the US, as long as they had money, there would be people surrounding that person asking them to buy stuff and it was best if they spent it all.
That was how the usual NBA superstars ran out of money and went bankrupt without any saving.
But Chen Huan was different as he ignored all the calls from those real estate agents, investment consultants etc… who called him.
He must be on drugs to spend all that money in America, wouldn’t that be better if he took the money back to his country?
If the villa wasn’t a gift from Kobe and Iverson, Chen Huan would have wanted to sell it since he didn’t plan to come back.
As for the 200 k worth Ferrari that Little Buss gifted to him, he sought Big Yao’s help and now the car was on the way to his home.
There were many people who came to look for Chen Huan uninvited.
Several times they would pretend to be one of Chen Huan’s guests to get into the community but Zhang Yaya called the guards to take them out.
Her identification process was quite simple, Chen Huan had no friends in the US except Kobe and Iverson.
Kobe and Iverson had now taken their families to vacation so what was up with all the ‘friends visits’?
However, people would find a way as long as they wanted something.
During that afternoon, Chen Huan got out of the car at the entrance of the community gate after shooting a Pepsi commercial and there was an energetic middle-aged man calling him while he was walking home.
“Mr. Chen, please give me a minute!” He came up to Chen Huan and said solemnly, “I have a very big opportunity for Bu Yiyi, one of your girlfriends!”
Chen Huan, “!?”
This was the first time he met this man but the man already knew how to use Bu Yiyi as a guise?
But that still prickled his interest.
This at least proved this person knew Chen Huan quite a bit unlike those other people who knew nothing but kept annoying Chen Huan.
Chen Huan beckoned the security guard to not come yet and looked at the time.
The man was happy as he said, “My name is Todd Phillips and am a well-known film director. I made hit movies like The Hangover 1, The Hangover 2 and The Hangover 3. I’ve also made War Dogs, which is going to be released in August.”
“You still have half a minute.” Chen Huan reminded him.
Todd Phillips sped up, “I wrote a script several years ago about a popular villain from DC comics. He’s very unique and represents the darkness of the world… Mr. Chen!!”
Chen Huan started to walk into the community before he finished.
He understood it now and it was him trying to promote his script.
There were thousands of people like that in Los Angeles.
They wanted to use their own scripts to attract investment so they could finally shoot the move and realize their dream.
It was also Chen Huan because he didn’t understand movies that much so he could say without hesitation that 99% of those scripts were complete garbage.
Even if this person was a good director, just watching him seeking Chen Huan so eagerly was enough for him to know that his script was rejected by multiple companies.
Otherwise, how could he come to seek someone who didn’t know anything about the entertainment industry like Chen Huan for investment?
So Chen Huan wasn’t interested in what he said even if he still didn’t mention anything about Bu Yiyi.
“Mr. Chen! It’s really worth taking a look!” Todd Phillips yelled from behind him, “Please read my story, you’re a genius and certainly will understand the mind of this mad villain and understand the story! I beg you!”
Chen Huan just shook his head.
These people really dared to say anything for the sake of getting investment.
How many movies were based on DC comics?
All of them were trash!
Especially if it was about a ‘Mad Villain’.
Chen Huan subconsciously stopped his steps.
He looked back at the nervous Todd Phillips and asked, “Which super villain are you referring to?”
Todd immediately answered.
