After quitting a lucrative job working for a bank, Daniel in June last year launched his very own lifestyle brand, Revival Shots – which its website claims is a “revolutionary formula specifically designed to provide superior rehydration and a vitamin hit”. Basically, it’s something that gives you a helping hand on a hangover.
Daniel himself has claimed he is the “epitome” of his business, explaining in his interview, “I would describe myself as a bit of a party animal. I’m outgoing, fun, like a drink – I am what my business represents.”
But before you’re start wondering why Daniel is on this show instead of something else like ITV 2’s Ibiza Weekender, he is quick to add that he wants to give back to the community too, having also launched the Daniel Elahi Foundation to help out the homeless in London last year.
“Deep down, I’m very focused on philanthropy and one of my main drives of getting rich and becoming successful is the influence I can have in giving back to the community,” he said.
Smugly saying that you’d “rather cry in a Ferrari than in a Ford”, Daniel said in his audition tape that he was a strong “11/10” for looks, before going into more details about his lavish Wolf of Wall Street lifestyle – revealing he can magically summon women with sparklers on lavish nights out.
“I remember one of the nights we had about $30,000 behind the bar. There were sparklers coming to the table all night. It was brilliant,” said Daniel. “Behind the sparklers obviously there’s loads of girls. It was awesome. But the minute the bottle runs out, the girls disappear as well. The moral of the story? Keep buying bottles.”
Form an orderly queue, ladies. And don’t forget your sparklers.
