Varney: Joe Rogan is fed up with big city problems
FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Joe Rogan announcing he’s moving to Texas to flee big city headaches.
Joe Rogan didn’t have to drink donkey juice, sleep in a coffin full of snakes, or walk on a tightrope 10,000 feet above the air to seal the deal.
The former “Fear Factor” host, UFC commentator and firebrand podcaster sold his Bell Canyon, California, property for $3.45 million — $250,000 more than he was asking for.
The move comes after Rogan, 53, said goodbye to Los Angeles and hello to Texas last year.

He left behind two guard-gated estates in LA’s San Fernando Valley after wanting more space and “freedom.”
He purchased one of the Bell Canyon properties — the one he is currently unloading — for $2.3 million back in 2003, during his time hosting “Fear Factor.” The superstar podcaster initially put the house on the market in October for $3.2 million. The home sold on Friday, five months later.
Spanning a massive 7,573 square feet, the house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Pegged as a French country estate, the home features rolling lawns, a glass balcony to showcase the city lights view, a meditation atrium, and al-fresco dining and entertaining spaces complete with a pool and spa, which overlooks the sprawling mountains and valley views.
Other features include a gourmet chef’s kitchen with a custom pewter center island countertop from Paris, two Miele dishwashers, three sinks, two refrigerators and marble counters.
The abode offers an open floor plan that includes a great room, living room and dining rooms with views, a media room with a pool table and wet bar, a library/office and a gym.
