Jeff Bezos Is The 3rd-Richest Man In The World And Makes Betty Crocker Pancakes Every Sunday — Fiancee Lauren Sanchez Reveals His Meticulous Lifestyle And 'Goofy' Side

Lauren Sanchez shared insights into her extraordinary life with her fiance Jeff Bezos, founder of Inc., in an exclusive interview with WSJ Magazine.

While Bezos has vast resources, he has a surprisingly simple breakfast secret: his weekly indulgence in Betty Crocker pancakes. Sanchez, being his confidante, provided a glimpse into their lives, where work and leisure seamlessly coexist.

While Bezos is admired for his decision-making skills, Sanchez revealed a different side of his personality. Through shared moments and laughter, she uncovered his lesser-known qualities that only a privileged few have seen.

"He makes me laugh all the time. He can be goofy," she told WSJ Magazine.

The true highlight occurs every Sunday morning when Bezos takes on the role of chef. With his beloved Betty Crocker cookbook in hand, he searches for his perfect pancake recipe, carefully measuring and preparing a stack of pancakes that surpasses all others.

"He takes out the Betty Crocker cookbook every time," she said. "OK, you're the smartest man in the world; why don't you have this memorized yet?"

Despite her jests, he continues his Sunday ritual undeterred. Bezos attributes the unmatched deliciousness of his pancake creations to precise measurements, earning them the title of "the best in the world," at least in the couple's opinion.

Thanks to platforms like StartEngine, it's now possible for anyone to seize such investment opportunities and be part of shaping future success stories.

Sanchez considers living with Bezos a continuous learning experience, akin to a "master class." Each day brings valuable knowledge and insights. Whether it's lessons on efficient meeting management or providing valuable input for her debut children's book, Bezos's guidance influences every aspect of their lives.

Bezos's dedication to physical fitness matches his love for pancakes. She said, "He stole my trainer" as she highlighted Bezos's determination during his workouts. She praises him for "really putting in the work."

Embracing their blended family, Bezos and Sanchez value a heartwarming tradition. The couple, along with their children, gather for family dinners on Saturdays, reminiscent of "The Brady Bunch." This celebration of togetherness goes beyond individual backgrounds, showcasing the power of love and unity.

Looking ahead, Bezos aims to explore new horizons. Sanchez, a skilled helicopter pilot and the founder of Black Ops Aviation, shares one of her fiancee's compelling common interests. Bezos is determined to obtain his pilot's license. They often take to the skies together, nurturing their shared passion for aviation.
