Paul and Michelle are wealthy oil tycoons and former entrepreneurs with a combined net worth of more than $50 million.

Born on December 6, 1992, in Tyler, Texas, Johnny Paul Manziel is a retired American football quarterback who played for the Zappers of Fan Controlled Football (FCB).

Manziel grew up playing different sports like football, basketball, and golf but eventually showcased his natural talent in football.

The quarterback player played college football for the Texas A&M Aggies and won the Heisman Trophy in 2012.

His professional career started after getting selected by Cleveland Brown as the 22nd overall pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. 

Following that, he briefly played for the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the Alliance of American Football (AAF).

However, his professional football career was relatively short-lived due to his involvement in various controversies related to substance abuse, bad behavior, and legal issues.
