40 rebuys in a live tournament?

I read a tweet from a reporter today that there was someone who played in the $100 LA Poker Classic rebuy tournament who invested $4,000 into the tournament.  That is 39 rebuys/40 BI's.  That's an action player for sure...

Thats a bit insane... if he doesn't win it I doubt he will make much I guess, its quite an investment.

That's insane! Don't rebuy tournaments only allow rebuys the first hour or two usually? if so 40 rebuys in that short a time frame is insane. Secondly his odds of covering his expenses are extremely low unless he goes EXTREMELY deep. Bad investment and bankroll management.
