Jump To Joe Francis' Stats
Don't ever expect to see Joe Francis championing women's rights issues. His whole empire has been as over the top misogyny as you can get. As the creator and owner of the Girls Gone Wild franchise, his productions continue to titillate its buyers with a quick flash of skin and girl on girl lip locks that lack real passion.
Fresh out of college and into television broadcasting, Francis saw an opportunity to market filmed outtakes that may be too rough for television news segments. He built a company called Banned From Television that made him a millionaire before he was 25. With that idea in hand and one of the segments a shot of a New Orleans celebrant flashing her breasts, Francis began his new enterprise that has drawn the hoots and howls of fans, the police, his adversaries and moms all over.
If you were going to describe Francis, controversial would be a good start. As recent as the 2012 NFL Super Bowl, Francis was in the news objecting to Madonna's performance of one particular song. Claiming the song Girls Gone Wild violated his brand, he sent a cease and desist letter through counsel that he claims prompted the change. Madonna's folks deny his assertions and claimed that the name change to Girl Gone Wild was nothing more than the way that the song was made.
Not one to shrug off a big wig, Francis has been mixing it up with Las Vegas Mogul Steve Wynn. Allegations between the two have spawned a series of lawsuits and counter lawsuits that accuse each other of nefarious deeds. Whether or not it's just two boys looking to measure their manhood has not been fully decided.
Francis now produces a reality show on HDNet television in hopes of discovering the next pretty hot babe in the United States. He travels on the Girls Gone Wild bus around the country holding competitions to determine the hotness quotient of a shrinking number of contestants. His membership to the NOW organization has been repealed, banned, excommunicated and destroyed.
