Guy Laliberté - Space Tourist
I'm a fan of Guy Laliberté. He's the billionaire founder of Cirque du Soleil who became a hero of mine after I watched him play poker on High Stakes Poker. He just seemed like such a likable and genuine guy.
Now Laliberté can add to his list of accomplishments the title of astronaut (or probably more accurately - cosmonaut).
$35 million to a guy like Guy for the chance to go into space? That's a bargain.
