Most people would think that Rich Alati (left in picture) could no longer take the pressure of not knowing how many days had passed since he started this dark room prop bet...but it looks like Alati is determined to finish the 30 days. However, things take a different turn when he received a message from Rory Young (right), and even if Alati can still go on, he has now decided to call it quits.
If you'd like to know how it all started, see the below stories:
Of course, Rich Alati (pictured below) didn't go home empty-handed. Since he lasted 20 days, he's going to get $62,400.
Alati had officially pulled out on Monday evening after he made an agreement with Rory Young during a scheduled food delivery.
But it looks like it was not primarily Alati's decision to call off the bet.
Young struck a deal to end the bet so that Alati can see the light again. Aside from earning $62,000, Alati will also have all expenditures paid by Young. When all the cash is counted and the debts paid off, Young would most likely be out about $42,000.
It appears that Alati has survived the prop bet without any significant mental damage (of course, we can never really tell unless Alati speaks up about it), so his dad could finally breathe that sigh of relief now that this whole crazy prop bet is over.
