Mark Zuckerberg (billionaire Facebook dude) gets pap’d with his girlfriend

fp_5871320_zuckerberg_chan_fp4_101010

I’m not on Facebook. I don’t care enough. But I like reading about people with money, so I’ve followed the story of Mark Zuckerberg and his ridiculously fast rise to power/money/fame/infamy. I still haven’t seen The Social Network, but I do tend to think the real Zuckerberg probably isn’t quite as bad as Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher make him out to be. Or maybe Mark is just in the midst of redefining himself in the media, and I’m buying into it. The huge donation to New Jersey schools, the appearance on Oprah, and now this… getting pap’d with his shockingly normal-looking girlfriend, Priscilla Chan. Does anyone else like him more now that you know his girlfriend is conventionally pretty, a crappy dresser and in no way a supermodel? I do. Priscilla looks so normal that I like Mark more. CB also likes Mark more now that she sees how he’s still such a kid, even in the way he dresses. Here’s what Fame Pictures says about the photos:

The youngest ever self-made billionaire , Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, enjoyed sunday afternoon with his girlfriend Priscilla Chan in Palo Alto, CA, October 10, 2010 in the same shirt that he sported out yesterday with a pal. The happy couple strolled around the farmers market and then enjoyed a Jewish festival that took place near by. Priscilla pumps her own gas as Mark hung out in the car. Zuckerberg certainly doesn’t appear to be an average billionaire at all.

His personal Facebook profile page, he lists his personal interests as “openness, making things that help people connect and share what’s important to them, revolutions, information flow, and minimalism.” A lifestyle motto to which he is clearly sticking to by driving an extremely economical Honda Fit and living way under his means in a rented small yet cozy home in Palo Alto, Ca. His cloths are obviously not flashy, expensive or brand new.

But Zuckerberg is choosing to spend his massive earnings on a greater purpose. Last week he created a Start-Up Education Foundation and gifted the city of Newark, New Jersey a breathtaking $100 million dollars to aid in the city’s desperately hurting public school system. And while this grand gesture coupled with an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show is all thought to be a strategic move to counter negative publicity from Aaron Sorkin’s film “The Social Network.” about Zuckerberg, which premiered in New York City the very same week. Zuckerberg claims that he intends to continue his mission for education!

So Mark Zuckerberg is getting pap’d now. I wonder if he likes the attention? He and Priscilla seem to be fine with the attention, and Mark even seems to be enjoying it in a sweet way. He’s not like “OH, HEY, Look at me!!!” He’s just like, “Oh, cameras! That’s funny.”

    They have the same legs.

  2. mln says:

    Well in the movie all the guys are really into Asian chicks so at least they got that part right LOL. Honestly I think the movie didn’t make him seem like an A-hole just a socially awkward smart-kid who had alot of tough choices to make at an incredibly young age. I found it believable and in the end I still sympathized with Mark.

  3. Kelly says:

    Wow, that is one ugly looking couple! Still, you’d think that with all his billions, he could do better than HER!

  4. Mia says:

    Nice, normal-looking couple.

    Refreshing to see people with money acting and looking just like regular folk and not all botox-ed up, in the latest over-priced designer gear.

  5. krissy says:

    I think they are cute together and that makes me like him so much more. I have no plans to see the movie but I love FB.

    Also, I think she looks cute for just hanging out in the morning, hopefully she isn’t going to get torn apart by people because she isn’t scary skinny.

  6. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    The waist on that skirt is far too high, reminding me of the 80′s.

    I think its cool now but when he’s being pap’d in 5 years, he’s gonna hate it!

  7. meoow says:

    Hey Kelly-
    Woman to Woman, you are pathetic!
    I hope your are gorgeous, so you can be used by a rich man too. Way to go!
    I admire that he isn’t materialistic like poor ugly Kelly :-x

  8. Sarah says:

    Don’t care about him. Don’t care to see the movie. Not real sure why I even clicked on this story. lol.

  9. jen says:

    They look like they play lots of World of Warcraft together.

  10. Kitten says:

    I also didn’t think the movie made him out to be a monster. I saw the movie with my brother who is a programmer and he said that he doesn’t think what Zuckerburg did was technically “stealing” as it was essentially just code which is next to impossible to patent.
    Anyway, everybody involved made out like bandits in the end.

    He looks like a happy millionaire and she looks fine except for the skirt hiked up to her boobs.

  11. CC says:

    They’ve been dating for like 6 years now too. Met at Harvard. He didn’t dump her when facebook took off, which I’m sure some people would do with a sudden influx of wealth like that.

  12. Melissa says:

    No offense, but if she’s conventionally pretty, I’m conventionally a supermodel.

    Also – he looks really short.

  13. Mistral says:

    I think she’s quite pretty. Cuter than he is! They really do have matching legs, though, haha. Anyhow, I still hate FB, but I wish I’d invented it ;) .

  14. l says:

    @ Melissa

    Who cares if he’s short? He has ZERO control over that!

  15. dudslove says:

    @ Kelly — to quote one of my favorite movies ever — you are one pathetic loser!

  16. sally says:

    Is that skirt supposed to go up to her boobs or did she pull it up like that? Unfortunate either way.

  17. mimi says:

    Kelly,

    I’d love to introduce you to my sister-in-law..I think you’d hit it off beautifully…as much as people like you have “relationships”.

  18. Samigirl says:

    Geeze, picking on people because of their looks is absolutely ridiculous. I agree with you, Kaiser. I like him a little more, seeing how normal he is. I’ve always had a thing for nerdy guys, so I think he is cute :)
    And anyone who is helping education is AWESOME! Good for him, using his money for good!

  19. Riley says:

    I love nerds. I really do. I’m kind of one myself though I have crappy SAT scores, don’t play a musical instrument, and wear waistbands below my waist.

  20. fizXgirl314 says:

    I find this incredibly endearing… of course people will have nasty things to say about something so incredibly wonderful (at least I think so)… for someone to stay so down to earth amidst all the billions is incredibly refreshing and rare…

  21. Lesley says:

    @ Kelly, please post a photo of yourself followed by your boyfriends / husband’s earnings for last year so that we may we may judge whether or not you are worthy of him
    Thank you.

  22. Liana says:

    Wow, that is one ugly looking couple! Still, you’d think that with all his billions, he could do better than HER!
    *****************

    Damn Kelly, bitch much? They’ve been together while and clearly they actually LIKE each other. Why trade in something stable and good for something glamorous and fake?

  23. Lydia says:

    I like him even more because of his average lifestyle and average looking girlfriend.

    Do not care for facebook and care even less about the movie.

    But I like seeing a normal couple not caught up in the glitz and glamor.

  24. devilgirl says:

    I find it odd, on a site, where most of the comments are about people’s looks, that people are so quick to pick on Kelly for her opinion. How many times do we see something said about Jennifer Aniston being ugly and looking like a man? Or any other actress? Isn’t it a bit hypocritical to gang up on Kelly when we critique so many other people in the public eye on this site?

  25. Ricci says:

    Her outfit is a bit frumpy.. a better outfit would do wonders.

  26. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think she is wearing one of those American Apparel multitasking dresses. And yes, that is one way to wear it.

  27. fizXgirl314 says:

    devilgirl… I think there are several difference… one, she’s not a movie star and just an average girl with probably no inclination toward fame or appearing glamorous… secondly, I think the suggestion that one should base their prospective mates on their bank account (while something that may be regularly practiced) is very quite repulsive…

  28. Ron says:

    The only reason they are getting photographed is becasue of the movie, after it goes away it will stop. Paps don;t follow Gates, Jobs, Wozniak, Buffet etc

  29. happymom says:

    Lord-I’d hate to get papped on my way to the grocery store. Let’s remember they’re actually just normal people and not celebs-despite being really loaded.

  30. flourpot says:

    -edit

    I think it’s refreshing that he’s not with some plastic, media-whore fake plastic barbie machine. So she’s not a supermodel. So he’s got a shitload of money. Look at B. Gates woman. Not a supermodel but pretty damn nice, imo.

  31. a says:

    they look comfy and happy. they are probably more healthy than most rich couples out there.

  32. Liana says:

    devilgirl – I rarely comment on anyone’s looks, so I am well within my rights to find Kelly’s comments obnoxious and bitchy.

  33. Sunshine says:

    Priscilla is not ugly – she is a normal looking girl – not ALL of us can be supermodels. I like this couple and I like Z more now that I know he acts normal – forget that he invented facebook and is a billionaire . . .it’s the Harvard grads that are usually nuts.

  34. Skylar says:

    that people are so quick to pick on Kelly for her opinion. How many times do we see something said about Jennifer Aniston being ugly and looking like a man?
    ******************************
    Because Devilgirl (aka Kelly) Jennifer A. is a celebrity and gets PAID to look good. These two are ordinary citizens with an extraordinary brain and job. Get a clue Kelly!

  35. OtherChris says:

    I think they’re well matched as a couple. She’s cute and slim and he has nice arms and is a bit nerdy. Nice to see that he hasn’t traded her in for someone flashier. It makes me think there’s some depth there.

  36. viper says:

    You’d think with the money that he makes he could afford a better outfit than something that resembles something I usually wear when Im washing my dog.

  37. Rachael says:

    He should carry his wife’s bag.

  38. Shy says:

    I still haven’s seen Social Network. But come on. I look at Jesse Jesse Eisenberg in trailers and clips and it’s totally different person. You know why? Because real Zuckerberg SMILES. He looks like a person who can have fun and smile. While Eisenbergs impersonation of him looks like that dude is so mean and never smiles. He overplayed him too much.

  39. Wanda says:

    @ Kelly

    Wow, are you shallow.

    My quote to you would be: “Beauty fades, but stupid is forever”

  40. Laurie says:

    From interviews I have seen, Mark seems like a great guy. I have not seen The Social Network, but I doubt it will change my opinion. It’s nice to see a down to earth (maybe nerdy) guy do well.

  41. dana says:

    I’m glad he didn’t ‘go hollywood’ atleast his penis isn’t a douche….she’s very cute, and I bet she won’t try to extort him…..and I bet she has a DEGREE that has nothing to do with communications, kids or underwater basket weaving…..she’s probably a PhD or Finance guru…yo go boy!

  42. Kim says:

    I have to agree. I don’t think she is attractive either. I’m not one to put other women down, and she’s obviously a smart, put together person– so kudos to her. That said, I wouldn’t trade my looks for hers.

  43. Whatever says:

    Wow, trashing her looks is a little over the top. She seems like a nice, normal person and I agree with others that sticking with a stable relationship is way better than “trading up” for some money hungry famewhore. It’s nice to see normal people do well.

    I haven’t seen the movie, but will wait for HBO. The premise seems a whole lot like the movie several years ago about Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

  44. chris says:

    I don’t think she’s a crappy dresser. I like what she’s wearing.

  45. jemshoes says:

    Being married to a nerd, I have a soft spot for them. Nerds (boys and girls) though quiet generally have interesting things to say and they use their brains mostly for good! :)

    I hope these 2 last and avoid all the trappings of wealth and celebrity. Got to love an Asian chick who rocks an ordinary pair of thongs (footwear ones)!!! :D

  46. mimi says:

    uh dana, so you think a degree involving “kids” is akin to underwater basketweaving??? Really?

    Whereas a degree in Finance is much more respectable?

    Well I have a degree in Finance, but am now completing a masters in Education (a “kids” degree). So, what does that make me? I really hope you’re very very young. Because that post was incredibly strange.

  47. Eastbay says:

    Wow, Kelly. What a horribly ugly, shallow thing to say. You’re parents must be soo proud

  48. Ally says:

    I love that the PAPER bag has a green slogan on it… People! If it isn’t reusable, it isn’t green! Geez.

  49. PrimeO says:

    I don’t give a crap what either of them look like but this comment made me laugh:

    @Melissa (#13)

    “No offense, but if she’s conventionally pretty, I’m conventionally a supermodel.”

    def. of conventional: in accordance with general agreement

    Yeah… I’d have to agree with Melissa here :D

  50. kelly says:

    Such hypocrisy. Scroll through threads about beautiful stars & you will find nothing but comments from catty women slamming their looks (i.e. Blake Lively.)

    But I point out the obvious about a homely girl & I get called out as the devil? The girl isn’t even average. She’s well below average & one of the worst looking people I’ve ever seen. She’s chunky, frumpy, & has totally unattractive facial features. Am I not allowed to criticize her because she’s not a celebrity? Because she’s Asian – and white/Jewish nerds have a hard on for unattractive Asian girls? What makes this girl’s looks above criticism? She’s dating a public figure, so she’s fair game, imo.

  51. truthzbetta says:

    Conventionally pretty? Wha …? Not seeing that one. At least she’s not seeking fame. Just a billionaire many times over but I’ll quietly say no more.

    I dislike Facebook so I’m not biased toward the guy or his crew, maybe that’s it.

  52. kate 2.0 says:

    I like him a bit more for appearing so down to earth….I guess. But I am curious to see if he stays “down to earth” in light of all the hoopla of the movie. Yes he stayed with her after he got rich, but I’m not sure how many people outside of the tech set really knew who he was. Am I wrong? Sure the WSJ types knew who he was, but not so much the TMZ types who are now hearing/seeing so much about him bc of the movie. I’m just saying that, for me, the question is whether he stays with her after he gets (more) FAMOUS in addition to rich. I think now with all this attention, there will be tons more “options” throwing themselves at him – he’s young, LOADED and not horrible looking. If he stays with her through all that, it says more about his “normalcy,” at least for me. It kind of sucks for him though, because he’s so young. Lots of people have lots of relationships (even long-term ones) end when they are in their 20s, its part of life, but he’ll have a lot more judgment thrown on him (like I just said I would) if his ends, whether its because of money & fame or just a relationship running its course (as so many do).

    And I don’t think being a nerd has much to do with what you look like – I’m a BIG nerd and proud of it, but people always say I “can’t” be because I “look so normal.” Its an attitude, not a look! For me anyway.

  53. Diva says:

    Kelly, seriously, quit while you’re only this far behind.

  54. Shay says:

    Kelly, c’mon now since when does money qualify partner selection?

    I clicked on this because I was curious and wondered “does this dude have a gf?” the media is so busy demonizing him, like he is a robot or something.

  55. gobo says:

    Kelly you’re being a bitch.

  56. DD says:

    Those are bad pictures of her, but I’ve seen photos and a short interview with her and Mark and I think she’s a very attractive girl. So she chose an unfortunate outfit, didn’t fix herself up in anyway, and made a few grimacing faces while facing the sun. At least she can do that without worrying her career will be over ;)

  57. aenflex says:

    He’s a bitch. And his girlfriend is fug. I quit Facebook last night atfer seeing the movie.

  58. Amy says:

    Yeah well Priscilla and Mark started dating BEFORE Mark became a public figure. And I’ve seen better pictures of her too.

    I read an article about Mark’s house, he lives in something really modest, like a 2 bedroom apartment with minimalist furniture. Obviously hasn’t let fame get to his head!

  59. aenflex says:

    He’s a bitch. If half of what they ‘show’ in the movie is true, he’s a bitch. If only a quarter of what they say is true, he’s still a bitch. I don’t give a shit if he lives in a shack, it does nothing to detract from his bitchfactor. He’s been rich for years and years, and NEVER done anything even remotely philanthropic until a film comes out showing the world what a selfish bitch he is…then…viola – he donates a hundred mil. Bitch.

  60. sweetzy says:

    we he found her? lucky woman.

  61. Fire says:

    Ease up everybody! She’s actually cute http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/valleywag/2008/06/PriscillaandMark.jpg
    You don’t always look your best every second.

    I also like the fact that he didn’t dump her because he got rich, although, I might have to agree with Kate 2.0. Now, after the movie, he is rich AND famous. We’ll see what he does with being a celebrity. I say he probably stays with her. Time will tell though…

  62. Anon73 says:

    seeing the avg girlfriend DOES make me like him more. seriously, he could literally have anyone and the fact he chooses her makes me think he values some inner qualities. GO MARK !! : )

  63. tripmom says:

    I thought the movie made him out to be antagonistic and petty, and I think the movie was probably pretty accurate. Yes, it’s great that he’s not driving a flashy car, that he smiles, is making nice donations for PR purposes, and has a normal looking girlfriend, but those things do not necessarily mean he’s a good person. I know lots of people that have normal looking girlfriends and don’t drive flashy cars, but they’re still jerks.

  64. whateva says:

    haters she is pretty, he looks like blondie paltrows man. ugly….

  65. Kazoo81 says:

    ummm before everyone gives him too much credit, he & priscilla have had quite a few splits during their relationship. and during that period, he allegedly did indulge in the plastic/pretty/hollywood chicks you’re deriding. LOL.

  66. Jennifer says:

    Honestly, I don’t believe he’s as big an asshole in real life as the movie made him out to be either. But, even if he is, I have to give the man credit.

    He’s a freaking genius. If you could make a billion dollars from selling a website, wouldn’t you? I would!

    He probably did do a couple fishy things during the uprising of Facebook, but I still can’t hate him for it.

    Honestly, I love him for how he has handled himself. Yes, he was on Oprah, but it was a last-minute thing that he didn’t really want to do. He donated a lot of money to a school district that needed it, and he lives so modestly, I MIGHT just have a shot at being a bigger spender than he is.

    Plus, he and his girlfriend have been together since pre-Facebook. So the man deserves major props.

  67. horbush says:

    Beauty fades but, ugly is forever.

  68. teehee says:

    Wow crap quit jumping on Kelly. She made a typical remark for this site and yall are wiggin out. No, wealth doesnt mean anyone should see only “pretty” people but that is all relative. He obviously thinks she is gorgeous, so thats all there is to it.
    And were all accustomed to snobby stard behavior where they think they should only deserve plastic barbies, so this is easily surprising to see that hes got a plain girl by his side.

  69. devilgirl says:

    Sorry Skylar, I am not Kelly. Just because I find some comments on here a bit hypocritical does not mean I am her and she is me.

    Grow up!

  70. Hi, just wandered by. I have a BC Rich Guitars website. Can’t believe the amount of information out there. Wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but very nice site. Take care.

  71. kate says:

    Dude, you should be a writer. Your text is so amazing. You should do it professionaly

  72. Very fun to read.Thank you for your share.It’s useful for me.

  73. lisa says:

    She is ugly but so is he. I don’t know why everyone is mad at Kelly for telling the truth especially on a website that is called http://www.celebitchy.com.
