Bay Area real estate investor Jason Buzi gave his first television interview in which he showed his face, explaining his motive and future plans on CNN’s “AC360.” Buzi told host Anderson Cooper that he has given away between $10,000 and $15,000 since starting the scavenger hunts for cash in San Francisco.
