>>Stephen: HOW HAVE YOU BEEN?.>>WELL. HAD A BUSY LAST YEAR.>>Stephen: WHEN DID YOU —
YOU STARTED REDDIT.>>FULL TIME CAPITALIST.>>Stephen: FOR PEOPLE WHO
DON’T KNOW WHAT REDDIT IS, I WOULD BE SURPRISED BECAUSE IT IS
THE FOURTH MOST VIEWED WEB SITE IN THE U.S. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE WHAT
REDDIT IS? I’VE DESCRIBED IT AND PEOPLE GO,
NO, THAT’S NOT WHAT IT IS.>>THIS WAY YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE
DEFINITIVELY: A COLLECTION OF COMMUNITIES, 100,000 PLUS OF
USERS ALL OVER WHO ARE SHARING CONVERSATIONS AND COMMENTS.>>Stephen: THERE IS ALWAYS
SOMETHING INTERESTING ON REDDIT.>>GUARANTEED. I WANT TO DISCOVER THE NEXT
ALEXIS OHANIAN, HAND THEM A CHECK AND HAVE THEM CREATE
SOMETHING EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER.>>Stephen: THE NEXT ALEXIS
OHANIAN IS ACTUALLY YOUR OWN CHILD RIGHT THERE.>>YES.>>Stephen: THERE IS YOUR
BEAUTIFUL CHILD OLYMPIA, RIGHT THERE.>>YES.>>Stephen: WHO IS THE
DAUGHTER OF YOU AND YOUR LOVELY WIFE SERENA WILLIAMS. RIGHT THERE. THERE YOU ARE. ( APPLAUSE )
HOW, ALEXIS, BECAUSE I KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE MARRIED TO THIS
LOVELY WOMAN. HOW DOES A SELF-DESCRIBED
UNEQUIVOCAL NERD END UP WITH ONE OF THE GREATEST ATHLETES IN
RECORDED HISTORY? HOW DOES THAT COME ABOUT? IT’S NOT A NATURAL MATCH! ( LAUGHTER )
I COULD HAVE WON A LOT OF MONEY IF I BET ON THIS, THE ODDS WOULD
HAVE BEEN PRETTY GOOD.>>DON’T EVER TELL ME THE ODDS,
STEVEN. I WOULD BEG TO DIFFER ON ONE
HAND BECAUSE SHE’S AN ACTUAL TOTAL NERD, INDEED.>>Stephen: REALLY? WE MET THROUGH CIRCUMSTANCE. I WAS AN INTERNET CONFERENCE IN
ROME, SHE WAS PLAYING A TOURNAMENT THERE, AND I HAD TOO
MUCH TO DRINK THE NIGHT BEFORE, AS IS THE THING, RED WINE FLOWS
NICELY IN ITALY, AND I OVERSLEPT, MISSED BREAKFAST, I’M
A FIEND FOR COFFEE, AND THE NICE FOLKS SAID, IF YOU FEED COFFEE,
SIR, GO SIT OUTSIDE. I GRABBED A TABLE, OPENED MY
LAPTOP AND THIS AUSTRALIAN GUY, TURNED OUT TO BE HER ASSISTANT,
IS LIKE, I’M MIKE, HI. I TAKE OFF MY HEADPHONES. AND HE SAYS THERE’S A RAT NEAR
YOUR TABLE, YOU SHOULD MOVE. I TOLD HIM THANK YOU, BUT I’M
FROM BROOKLYN, I SEE RATS ALL THE TIME, IT’S REALLY NOT A BIG
DEAL. ( LAUGHTER )
YEAH.>>Stephen: SO THAT WAS JUST
TO GET YOU TO MOVE ALONG.>>I LATER L,ARNED THEY WERE
TRYING TO GET RID OF ME. THEY WERE PLANNING ON USING THE
TABLE FOR THE REST OF THEIR TEAM. BUT SERENA TURNED AROUND AND
SAID, YOU’RE NOT AFRAID OF RATS? I SAID, NO. SHE ASKED IF I WAS THERE AT THE
TECH CONFERENCE. I SAID YES. SHE ASKED ME WHO I WAS THERE TO
SEE SPEAK. I SAID I WAS SPEAKING. SHE ASKED WHAT I DID. I SAID I STARTED THIS COMPANY
CALLED REDDIT AND I DO INVESTING. SHE SAID REDDIT, I NEVER HEARD
OF IT. ( LAUGHTER )
AT THE TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO THINK SHE HAD A HIDDEN AGENDA,
BUT SHE SAID IT WAS PURELY PROFESSIONAL AND GOT MY NUMBER
TO ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT TECH AND SOME OF THE BUSINESSES SHE
WAS INTERESTED IN. ONE THING LED TO ANOTHER AND SHE
MADE WHAT I CALL AN L.A. INVITE FOR ME TO SEE HER PLAY IN
FRANCE. SHE MADE THE INVITE WITH NO
INTENTION OF ACTUALLY TAKE MEG UP ON IT.>>Stephen: SHE’S JUST SORT OF
LIKE, OH, YOU SHOULD COME, I’M PLAYING AT THE FRENCH OPEN.>>WITH NO INTENTION OF ME
TAKING HER UP ON IT OR IT EVEN BEING A SINCERE INVITATION.>>Stephen: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
YOU SHOW UP?>>I FIGURED, I’M AN
ENTREPRENEUR AND YOU HAVE TO DEFAULT TO SITUATIONS AND TRUST
YOUR INSTINCT AND KNOW WHAT YOU WANT AND DO IT. I FIGURED WORSE CASE SCENARIO, I
HAVE A GREAT STORY OF HOW I GOT BLOWN OFF FOR THE WEEKEND, I
HAVE FRIENDS IN PARIS, I HAVE A GOOD TIME. I LET HER KNOW I WAS GOING TO BE
IN TOWN AND IT WAS A PERFECT COINCIDENCE, I WAS SUPPOSED TO
BE IN PARIS, ANYWAY. I WASN’T.>>Stephen: VERY SMOOTH. AND I WAS ONLY THERE FOR THE
WEEKEND. I SAID I WAS WAY TOO BUSY TO
MEET ON SATURDAY.>>Stephen: YOU FLEW TO PARIS
AND TRIED TO ACT COOL?>>YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.>>Stephen: I’M JUST HERE TO
CHECK OUT THE LOCAL RATS? ( LAUGHTER )
>>YOU ASKED ME HOW IT HAPPENED, THAT’S HOW. I TOLD HER I WAS REALLY BUSY. THEN SHE TRIED TO BLOW ME OFF. EVENTUALLY, WE ENDED UP
WANDERING DOWN PARIS TOGETHER, AND THE MOMENT I KNEW WE FOUND
THIS LITTLE ZOO, AND I SAW IT OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE AND
I SAID WE’RE GOING TO WALK THROUGH THE ZOO. THERE WAS THIS BIG CAT LIKE A
LEOPARD, A MAJESTIC CREATURE, AND THEN IT WAS FEEDING TIME. THEY THREW OUT A BUNNY.>>Stephen: A DEAD BUNNY? IT WAS A DEAD BUNNY BUT IT
WAS A SHOW. AND THIS LEOPARD JUST WENT IN
AND BLOOD IS GOING EVERYWHERE. SHE’S VERY ROMANTIC AND SHE’S
STANDING IN FRONT OF ME AND I CAN TELL SHE’S VERY UNSETTLED BY
IT. I SAID, IT’S COOL, WE’RE GOING
TO KEEP GOING. P BUT IN THAT MOMENT, I SAID,
THERE’S A CONNECTION. AND IN THAT MOMENT, THANKS TO
THAT POOR RABBITT, I FOUND LOVE, IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING ELSE.>>Stephen: CONGRATULATIONS. THANK YOU.>>Stephen: AND ON THE NEW
VENTURE.>>YES
( APPLAUSE )>>Stephen: TELL ME ABOUT
INITIALIZED CAPITAL AND CRYPT OCCURRENCEY AND DON’T EXPLAIN
BLOCK CHAIN OR I WILL WALK OFF THIS STAGE RIGHT NOW.>>WOW IS THAT SO WHY CRYPT
OCCURRENCEY? WHY NOT MONEY? PEOPLE WILL SPEND IT.>>YEAH, WELL, SO WHAT THIS DOES
IS ACTUALLY IT’S A FUEL FOR A POTENTIALLY NEW INTERNET AND
THINGS LIKE BI BITCOIN AND CRYPT OCCURRENCEY IS A CHANCE FOR US
TO HAVE A CURRENCY NOT BACKED BY A SINGLE COUNTRY. WE STILL EXPECT THE COUNTRY WILL
BE HERE IN THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS.>>Stephen: IF WE MAKE IT
THROUGH NEXT THREE, WE WILL BE JUST FINE. THERE WAS A BLOODLESS REVOLUTION
IN AIR MEANIE WHICH IS FANTASTIC. BUT IN SO MANY STATES THERE IS
UNCERTAINTY ABOUT GOVERNMENT AND MOVIE AND PEOPLE SEE THEIR LIFE
SAVINGS DISAPPEAR. THERE IS A VALUE OF HAVING A
CURRENCY THAT’S POTENTIALLY LESS VOLATILE THAN THE STATES WITH
HYPERINFLATION. AND WE TAKE FOR GRAND WE HAVE
BANK ACCOUNTS AND WE THINK WE CAN MOVE THIS MONEY HERE AND
THERE. BUT FOR SO MANY PEOPLE TO HAVE
THE SECURITY OF KNOWING WHAT IT IS YOURS IS YOURS AND NOW THAT
IT’S DIGITAL COULD BE TRANSFERRED WITH YOU WHEREVER
YOU’RE GOING IS AN EMPOWERING THING.>>Stephen: GOOD LUCK. I HOPE WE DON’T NEED IT.>>I HOPE SO, TOO.>>Stephen: ALEXIS OHANIAN,
EVERYBODY! BACK WITH A PERFORMANCE BY “LAKE
STREET DIVE”!

100 thoughts on “How Alexis Ohanian Met His Future Wife Serena Williams”

  1. I am sure off the court ,Serena is a very feminine sweet woman’s. But we never get to see that side of her because her fierce competitiveness shows when things not going her way……… wow that temper!!Watch out Mr Serena if you ever cross her🤪🤪🤪

  2. These jooz promote these queer relationships. Obvious that Serena is a man and they bought that kid somewhere. You gotta be nuts to think that thing can be passed off as a woman. You Americans are retarded to believe these jooz are normal, no wonder they eat babies.

  3. Men, please wear undershirts!!!!! Yes, it's old fashioned, but at least your belly won't be out on national TV.

  4. And he doesn't seem to be embarrassed to admit his love for his wife..I admire..him not trying to carry all broken females on his back!..

  5. Came to this video thinking "who is this guy and how could he snag Serena Williams?" He won me over when he said "thank you, but I'm from Brooklyn, I see rats all the time, it's really not a big deal."

  6. This dude is an ass. He seriously thinks HE wooed Serena Williams? Boy, don’t even try it. Serena Williams would easily beat the shit out of this “man”. What was she thinking getting involved with this?

  7. It's interesting because I used to work with Armenians, and many of them HATED black people. I heard that ALEXIS was prejudiced towards blacks as well. They are a beautiful love story; I hope they have many strong years together.

  8. Wow, there's Serena again, she looks great, baby Olympia and her qua qua doll she so cute, glad Serena sharing her baby with us, continued success and happiness.

  9. redditt: RIP Aaron Swartz
    Serene silverback rude bitch on the court Williams,
    please go straight to hell and rot there – NOW.

  10. 1:09 'lovely wife' who acts like Mike Tyson on a bad day! – Colbert's obviously missed her many evil tantrums on court whenever she knows she's losing.

  11. If Serena was a checkout girl ( minus the $150m fortune ) he wouldn't have given her a second look…………………….just like Markle and Ginger ( a prince ).

  12. He seems to me like a simple guy…totally oposite person from Serena….maybe that was positive switch…..

  13. wonder who the mother of his child is.. because two men cannot have a baby… serena is xy chromosome… he is xy chromosome…. so… dna check… there is no serena or not alexis n the dna…

  14. Please replace old school, dead pan, humorless, joyless, looks like she's about to cry, Pam Schriver with joyful, funny, fresh faced, smart
    Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Thank you.

  15. They didn't truly see Paris. They drove around in a limo and got out here and there. How fucking romantic! Authentic French experience..

  16. I love this couple!
    They are in love, have a lovely daughter and are happy and very successful. Let's celebrate that.

    I don't really understand why people are talking about their coloring because at this age I don't know why there's a conversation at all. 😑

  17. Margaret Court is ‘currently’ the greatest ever female tennis player as she won 64 Grand Slam titles, 24 singles, 19 doubles & 21 mixed doubles, a record that Serena will never break. Williams does have a chance though at the singles record, she needs one more to equal her & one to pass her!

  18. I like this couple. Both hardworking, talented, well spoken individuals! He seems really nice and smart, a little bit shy, but always in the mood of storytelling. ♥️

  19. Lovely romantic story Alexis, just shows love (those moments) can happen anywhere, any moment, any time .. Im really happy for you and Serena ….

  20. It was a great interview. Interesting guy. Everything was great until Colbert made a crack about the country under Trump. Then the band got involved. You are not funny Colbert. You're a tiresome unimaginative and boring waste of time.

  21. He earns millions but Serena is mucho millions more… he used his common sense. more millions together is better, right? I have a face only mother can loved..hahaha

  22. I saw them when she was pregnant and my first thought was… Absolutely BEAUTIFUL couple.. She was glowing., he was freaking glowing more than an 8mth pregnant wife could be.. Their daughter is just as gorgeous as they are.. Opposites do attract and I'm living proof with my now FRAYING BEST DAMN FRIEND and husband of recently 2yrs.. We don't argue, we hear have this amazing friendship and connection that I had no idea you could have with a spouse even as someone with a degree in Forensic Psychology. Lol…
