Kevin O’Leary reacts to two professional ballet dancers who spent $2,885 on food in a month
As ballet dancers, Dylan Gutierrez, 30, and Jeraldine Mendoza, 29, are already planning for their retirement from professional dancing. The couple earns roughly $178,000 per year as principle dancers with the Joffrey Ballet, as well as from a steady stream of side hustles in the arts community.
Given the physically demanding nature of their work, they expect to retire from professional ballet dancing in the next five to 10 years.
CNBC Make It asked Kevin O’Leary, chairman of O’Shares ETFs and judge on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” for his take on how well the couple is doing to prepare for their futures.
The couple gets high marks from the investor for some of their housing decisions. They own a condo in a lively neighborhood of Chicago, forwent a car or parking spot in the city (saving them $20,000 off the bat, O’Leary estimates) and reinvested in their property by upgrading their kitchen and bathrooms.
What O’Leary doesn’t love as much is the couple owning property without being married. Gutierrez and Mendoza got engaged in 2019 and plan to marry as soon as it’s safe to host a destination wedding in Italy.
O’Leary notes he’d like to see the couple get more serious about their budgeting, which Mendoza admits she doesn’t keep track of too closely. “That’s a mistake,” O’Leary says.
Looking at their monthly spending, he also recommends the couple reign in their outsized food spending. In August 2020, the couple spent $2,885 on food across groceries, dining out and ordering takeout - a price tag O’Leary deems “crazy.”
“If you’re dancing, you need those calories. I get it. But I think there’s a major savings to be had on doing a little more planning for groceries and doing a little more cooking at home,” he says.
While the two prefer to stash $500 per paycheck into savings, and also contribute to a union pension, O’Leary strongly advises Gutierrez and Mendoza diversify their investments. In addition to putting money into savings, he’d like to see them invest in the stock market to take advantage of higher returns over time. He also says the two should consider opening tax-advantaged retirement savings accounts outside of their pensions.
With that said, the couple is realistic about their futures in dance and are laying the foundation for their lives after ballet. Gutierrez hopes to start a production company, while Mendoza would like to pursue interior design.
“They’re planning for the future - very smart,” O’Leary says. “Dylan, he can produce. That would be fantastic. There’s always demand for more content. Even dance is getting more digital.
“And frankly, interior design, if you have the eye, is always going to be around forever,” O’Leary adds. “People are always trying to upgrade where they live ... Plus, looks like she did a great job on her own condo from what I’m seeing here.”
Overall, O’Leary gives the couple a rating of 7.5 out of 10 and thinks that, with a few tweaks, they could be well on their way to a 9.5 standing.

  • There is no advantage to 401k's or any other tax DEFERRED investment plans. What do you think Mr. Wonderful, will the tax rates be MORE or LESS than what they are in 30 - 40 years. Put into a 401k only what the company will match, max out the Roth IRA, max out a Health Savings Account if you are eligible to do so, which you CAN put into investments, and put the rest into non-tax deferred mutual funds. You'll thank me when you turn 72 and don't have millions sitting around untaxed and have to withdraw a certain portion of it taxed as ordinary income.

  • I feel like every financial advisor's advice is to take all your money and invest it, save it, and buy a house. Spending money on a dog? Why would you do that? It only brings you joy and companionship. There's no money in that. They only approve of hobbies and interests that make more money.

  • Come on, household income of $178K and they don’t have any IRA or 401k? They HAVE to set up a Roth IRA account at the very least. They can withdraw the principal amount any time just like a savings account, but the money grows tax free in the stock market, beating inflation.

And they don't want biological kids; instead they consider their dog to be their "kid" as a replacement to fill that emotional void, and to fulfill their natural human desire to become a parent in some way. People are strange.

  • Go to a jeweler or pawn shop and pick out a ring you like that is second hand and less costly. I was married the second time at age 45, we did $300.00 bands only. Then I took my small diamond from my first marriage and had it reset for $100.00 for the gold band. I wanted our money to go for our future life together.

At the moment, the couple is able to afford the treatment, but this can be a motivation to find ways to earn more income to pay for the treatment.

  • Mr. Wonderful, not for nothing but you shouldn't be speaking upon what they should do with their dog. Sure, they can re-work finances in almost every other area of their lives but when it comes to health of themselves or a loved one (i.e. dog), that is the area in which criticism needs to be relaxed. After all, what's the point of having an abundance of wealth if you aren't surrounded by those who make you happy? Getting a "new dog" is just heartless and disconnected advice - advice in which I hope this couple does not listen to.

    Randa NaimRanda Naim23 kun oldin
  • Wonderful advice on the dog Mr. Wonderful, but as wonderful as you are it is true that no one is perfect. I say this since you advice them to start a 401K which perhaps you don't know but those funds have no money in them and they are broke and at the rate they are performing this will be our next financial crisis, the worst yet. (I suggest a Index Universal Life Insurance)

And the lack of any retirement is a cardinal sin and irresponsible.
