Why did Heidi and Spencer spend all their money?

Back when Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were still relevant, they went through what I affectionately call their “crazy phase,” where they basically blew millions of dollars on healing crystals, pretended they were military heroes, and spent all their time trying to convince people not to get tattoos because they were a sign of the apocalypse. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that they also believed in the Mayan apocalypse, and ended up blowing all their money on it because this is what happens when you give money to the mentally deficient.

He has now admitted they deliberately spent all their cash before December 21, 2012 —the day the world was set to end, according to a prophesy based on the Mayan calendar. He tells Britain’s OK! magazine, “We made and spent at least 10 million dollars. The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits. “Here’s some advice, definitely do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. But the world didn’t end.” Opening up about his extravagant lifestyle, Pratt adds, “I would give my friends $15,000 for their birthday. Just cash. I would buy people cars. Every valet I met got a couple of hundred pounds tip. I would pay people $200 just to open doors for us.”

On one hand, Heidi and Spencer are known for doing the dumbest crap imaginable for the most ridiculous reasons possible, so I totally believe they blew all their money over a perceived apocalypse. On the other hand, they went broke more than two years before 2012 even came around, so congratulations: Not only did you buy into a fake apocalypse, but you tapped yourselves two years before it was supposed to happen. Congratulations, you are both gloriously stupid.
