Why would someone want to own an alligator?

I have heard of people in the US owning them and I can't for the life of me understand why someone would want this as a pet. They need so much room and time, and the cost of their diet must be expensive if you are doing it right!

They must be filthy rich to think and do of it.

To show off? I am not sure. I have never known someone to want to care for one outside of people who work at the zoo. I am guessing it is not only time-consuming but expensive to keep a creature that size healthy.

I remember seeing a story not too long ago about a man who was actually, well, doing things to them down in Florida no sane man should be doing. I don't understand it. They need space and freedom. It is wrong to keep one as a pet.
