Poker Player Brothers Accept $150K Bet That Completely Changed Their Lives.

News |

The Staples brothers were challenged to alter their weight so that they matched within a year.

What would you do if someone offered you $150,000 to try and match the weight of a buddy within a year? But there are only two catches, you have to get within a single pound of each other and you have to achieve this in a year. Well, for Jaime Staples and his brother Matt this was a real offer. A high stakes poker player named Bill Perkins bet the brothers $3,000 at 50:1 that they couldn't achieve this goal, but of course, if they did, they'd earn big bucks. So, since the brothers loved a good deal, they decided to accept the challenge, and you won't believe the remarkable transformation.


While on board The Streamboat, streaming poker from the Bahamas on Bill Perkins' yacht, Jaime Staples weighed 306 pounds, while his brother Matt was only 135 pounds. But when they got on that scale on March 25, 2018, at 5 p.m., they both had to weigh within a pound of one another.
