Last Man Standing In Billion Dollar March Madness Bracket Challenge Comes Up Short
Thanks to upsets in the March Madness tournament, Warren Buffett's billion dollar bracket challenge will not have any winners. INSIDE EDITION spoke to Brad Binder who was the last man standing.
And then there were none. Brad Binder, the last man standing in the bid for a perfect March Madness bracket, is officially out of the running for Warren Buffet's billion-dollar challenge.
Binder had Syracuse beating Dayton. Instead, Dayton triumphed with a score of 55-53 and that upset meant Binder's perfect bracket bit the dust.
INSIDE EDITION's Paul Boyd asked Binder, "Did you ever, in your wildest dreams, think you would have such an incredible run when you started this tournament?"
Binder said, "No, it is crazy. It has been surreal."
Millions of people had submitted brackets to America’s second-wealthiest man via Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge and 95% of contestants were knocked out on the first day. The rest were gone by day two. That left 23-year-old Brad Binder from outside Chicago as the last person.
Binder said, "It was sad to see the run end. But, I am so thankful to everyone who was with me on the run. It was fun."
Binder, the last man standing, took five minutes to fill out his entire bracket. But he was in such a hurry to get to work that he never submitted it to Warren Buffet.
Even so, he has established a reputation as a whiz kid.
Binder said, "I am even getting requests to give people lottery numbers."
