One quick glimpse into this guy's mentality, from 2011:
...not...a...lot...going...on. Cookie cutter young guy with a lot of energy, no goals, and a sketchy attention span.In 2011, then a 20-year-old fitness trainer, Tarrant posted about how his life was transformed by the death of his father a year earlier.
Ironically, he had shown concern about whether he could honour his father’s legacy. “Recently came into contact with a bit of capital due to the passing away of my father,” he posted on a stock forum in 2011. “Really don’t want to lose the money as he paid for it with 30+ years of his life.”
But Tarrant bragged that he was a man of confidence, in a post about a month later.
“Truthfully I am extremely confident in every situation but talking over the phone,” he said in the same post. “I run fitness classes with 20+ people daily who do nothing but stare/ask questions and mimic my movements for 60mins and I enjoy it.
“My self respect is through the roof, I can truly do anything I put my mind to.”
He spoke of the things he really wanted to do — “playing video games, snorting coke and hiring strippers” — and described himself as “the strongest person [pound for pound] in my town”.
