After a friend promised $100,000 as an award, one man got breast implants to win the bet (video below).
"In about 1997-ish, I was in some restaurant in Europe and I was with two friends, and his girlfriend at the time was flaunting her boobs,” Canadian magician and gambler Brian Zembic said on the TV show "Botched," reports US Weekly. "And I said to my friend, 'If I had boobs like hers, I could get just as much attention as she would."
Zembic’s friend then dared him to do so, with both shaking hands after agreeing to the six-figure award.
Zembic later won a free operation after winning a few games of backgammon with a New York plastic surgeon.
"Boom! The surgery was for free," he said while recalling the moment he won the game. "And the next day I woke up with boobs."
"There are very few things I won’t do for a bet," Zembic said. "The first time I showed my friend, he laughed for 10 minutes and said, 'That is the best $100,000 I’ve ever lost.'"
His friend then offered him an additional $10,000 for every year he kept the implants, Worldwide Weird News reports. Almost 20 years later, Zembic still has the implants and is making money off of them.
Surprisingly, his family did not seem too upset about it.
“It's obviously a little weird, but it gets the bills paid," Anita, Zembic's wife, and Mika, their 13-year-old daughter, said, according to Worldwide Weird News.
Zembic said he doesn’t feel like having breasts is that exciting.
“I always thought I might have got turned on by my own breasts,” he said, Sabotage Times reported. “But the truth is they don’t do anything for me.”
However, when he was offered $10,000 to have them removed in 2014, he said no.
“I’ve grown too attached to them,” he said.
Now, however, Zembic will be getting his breast implants removed during the May 17 episode of "Botched."
He still has some reservations about the removal though.
"If I remove the implants it’s going to look like wet socks with nipples on them and that's what scares me," he said, according to Worldwide Weird News.
Brian noted that this is not the first time he’s gone through with a strange bet.
He’s lived in cardboard boxes in New York, in a friend’s bathroom, and slept under bridges all to win some money, Sabotage Times reported.
