In 2010, Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow once made one of the biggest prop bets in history. Matusow wagered $2 million that Forrest couldn’t lose almost 50 pounds in two months ($1m if he could do it in four months). Through extreme dieting and exercise, Forrest was able to lose the weight in less than two months and win $2 million…or so it would seem.
It turns out that Matusow has been slow to pay his debt off – very slow! Forrest recently tweeted about how “The Mouth” has only paid a fraction of what he owes on $1.8 million: “@CardPlayerMedia Correcting the numbers: @themouthmatusow has payed me $70.500 of the 1.8million he owes me for the weight loss bet #4years”
One of the stipulations of the bet was that Forrest wasn’t supposed to use any weight loss drugs to complete the transformation. So Scott Matusow, Mike’s brother, tweeted back: “@ForrestTed @CardPlayerMedia @themouthmatusow wasnt part of that bet for you to submit to drug testing? Mike is weak, I’m not”
This definitely didn’t sit well with Forrest, who went on a rant that included a $50k challenge against The Mouth. Here’s a look at all of Forrest’s tweets about the $50k challenge and weight loss bet:
I earned it drug free. Your brother knows he is in the wrong we need to get together and make some kind of arrangement
Let him pay me 50k I will play him a head up Omaha 8 or better freeze out. ( his best game) if I beat him that should prove who I am!
Total freeroll for Mike all it costs him is 50k which he owes me and it costs him nothing if he beats me at his best game
I’m sorry I’m ranting like a mad man about all this. It’s just four years of frustration coming out.
