This is what he did, he wore a COVID mask and he put a hat on and he hid and he used an alias. Imagine you’re right about to compete and it’s maybe your first competition like just give it a try. I mean what’s the worst thing that could happen? The worst thing that could happen is you get strangled by a super nerd in front of the whole world. I’m very proud of him. I think it’s amazing that he did that.

I love when people just, he doesn’t have to do anything”, Rogan continued. “He’s one of the richest people one earth and he just takes a chance, tries to get good at this thing, goes and competes in this thing. We should all celebrate that. That’s amazing.” (H/T MiddleEasy)
