Ted Forrest lost 23 kilos and won 2 million dollars!

Posted on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 by "T".

About 2 months ago, Ted Forrest, the american poker pro, received a crazy prop bet from his fiends Mike Matusow and Justin Smith. The prop bet meant that if Ted Forrest could lose 50 pounds (22,68 kg) before June 15, he would get $2 million dollars. Ted Forrest, who weighed 85 kilo at that point, accepted the prop bet almost straight away. The challenge was on and Ted went on a strict diet!

When Ted stepped on the scale 2 months later, he was just skin and bones and weighed around 60 kilo. He had lost about 23 kilos and accomplished the impossible - to lose 26% of his body weight or about half a kilo almost every day for 2 months.

Maybe his next prop bet will be lower the body mass to 40 kilos. Its not much for another 2 million - only another 20 kilos. Tongue

that is a lot of weight to loose in a such a short time. Makes me wonder if good old weight shedding crystal meth was involved. JK Smile

It's nice news for fat Americans (over 90% of population Big Smile Big Smile), but i don't know that was good for his health... Organism doesn't like gaining or losing weight so fast!
And, like Kristan said:
Wonder if he did it for the money or because he's gambling addict

This bet was not as strange like another one years ago.A dude made a breast implant to gain 100000 $.After taking the money kept also the breast for self pleasure.The evil's eye does a lot of good deeds

To celebrate the 2 years and 2 months anniversary this news just made.

I'll guarantee you he doesn't have $2m sitting in his bank account.

You think Matusow or the other dude have a milly to stump up each in cold hard cash? No chance.

That money must be the most enticing way to starve yourself ever - bet he's looking at food in a different way now..
