I don’t see what the fascination is with the ‘Cigar Guy’.
It wasn’t like he was ‘Epic Beard Guy’ or Antonie (hide your kids, hide your wife) Dodson.
Whatever the case, it became a worldwide internet sensation to the point sites where willing to pay money for his identity.
Being that I am a Dollarnaire, I didn’t pay anything, but through my highly sought after investigative skills, I found out the guy’s name—Rupesh Shingadia. Here are the details:
We can reveal that Cigar Guy is golf fan Rupesh Shingadia, a 30-year-old investment analyst in the City – and a very reluctant star.
‘I am embarrassed and overwhelmed,’ he said in an exclusive interview. ‘Never in a million years could I have expected anything like this.
‘It is truly surreal.’
Rupesh said his costume was a ‘tribute’ to Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.
‘I wanted to do something to show my support for the European team and I thought of Miguel. These days sportsmen have become devoid of character. But Miguel does his own thing and I love the way he walks around the course with a cigar clamped between his teeth.’
So there you have it, folks! ‘Cigar Guy’ now has a name and because the mystery is gone, the story will die out—because it is the mystery that made it a story in the first place.
