Baseball player, Brian Wilson was offered $1 million to shave off his beard.
Wilson was offered the money by a razor blade company, 800Razors.com, to shave off his beard after making his 2013 debut With Los Angeles Dodgers. The company was in talks with the 31-year-old to have his beard cut off which will also make him a brand ambassador for the company.
“His management feels we need to match his present salary of $1 million at a minimum,” Co-Founder and President of 800Razors.com Philip Masiello said. Wilson is also recovering from another Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery. His beard is his signature which he added a ponytail to.
Wilson hasn’t pitched since April 2012 with the San Francisco Giants.
