Argentine Media Figure. He was a millionaire heir of the Chocolate Factory "FelFort", which was founded by his grandfather Felipe Fort. He first became known in the entertainment world for his eccentric and expensive tastes: Rolex watches, luxury jewelry, Rolls Royces, unusual plastic surgeries or luxury clothes bought in Miami, Florida were common in his repertoire. In 2009, he decided to pay out of pocket for a television program "Fort Night Show" in Canal 13 to film a reality show about his life and his friends in the frequent trips and parties that performed around the world. However, his meteoric rise to fame began to occur at the end of that year, when he won the "Bailando por un sueño" ("Dancing with the Stars"), earning him a spot on the most-watched television program in Argentina: "ShowMatch" by Marcelo Tinelli. There, his fights with other celebrities and their eccentricities quickly became him a star of the evening programs. He also led successive seasons in vaudeville theaters with important success. For some time suffered from health problems after several surgeries in the vertebral column, that caused him severe pain and mobility problems, which had affected him seriously physically and emotionally.
