Joe Francis Net Worth
Joe Francis Net Worth: Joe Francis is an American entrepreneur and film producer who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. Joe Francis was born April 1, 1973 in Atlanta, Georgia. Joe Francis is the founder of Girls Gone Wild (an adult entertainment company known for videos typically involving camera crews at party locations engaging young, college-aged women who willingly expose their bodies or act wild). Francis' first business venture began when he was working as a production assistant for Real TV, a reality television program which aired footage of extraordinary events that were not usually covered in mainstream news. It was here that Francis came up with the idea for Banned from Television. During his time at Real TV, he would often be privy to footage involving car accidents, attacks and other graphic events. Francis licensed the footage and marketed it on paid television advertisements. While viewing footage for use on Banned from Television, Francis came across footage of female college students flashing their breasts during Mardi Gras and Spring Break. It was this footage that sparked Francis' next business venture called Girls Gone Wild. GGW products have been sold primarily through their website as streaming videos, downloads and DVDs. In February 2013, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but at the point Joe was no longer involved with the company.
