Weight Loss Prop Bet Kicks Off Between Doug Polk and Bill Perkins

Weight Loss Prop Bet Kicks Off Between Doug Polk and Bill Perkins

16 Feb

In a recent tweet, Doug Polk announced that he and notorious prop bettor Bill Perkins have agreed to terms on a body fat loss bet with $200,000 on the line. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

One Year to Half the Fat

It all started when Polk put out a tweet stating he was looking to take action on himself in a fat loss bet. Polk, who has been on his own fitness journey, stated that he has plateaued and is looking for extra motivation.

Getting a Dexa scan for the first time tomorrow. Just stagnated with fitness progress and looking to get back on the grind.

Looking for action on myself to lose 1/3rd my body fat in a year.

Can either bet against me or happy to do a bet with someone looking for the same.

Perkins was quick to reply to Doug’s tweet, stating he was interested in the bet. According to the reply, Perkins is familiar with losing body fat.

That’s fairly easy to do. So you’d have to lay odds. What’s app me for a challenging structure for example, I just dropped 4.4% in 30 days as part of my strength to get to 9% BF. Very painful tho😁

Polk also got some replies from his followers. One thought it was too easy of a challenge for Polk.

“I think ⅓ is probably going to be too easy,” one user tweeted. According to his reply, Polk is in the best shape of his life, and taking on this bet is a way to motivate him even more.

I’m around the best shape of my life and this would be a huge improvement.

A few days later, Polk announced that the two have agreed to terms, and the bet is officially on.

I have officially started a 1 year bet against @bp22. 1 year to lose half of my body fat. I just got my dexa scan and I came in @ 27.7% bf.

Feb 10th 2023 I must be < 13.85% BF

We bet $200,000

The Journey begins.

The terms are as follows:

  • Polk as one year to reach half of his body fat percentage (27.7% to 13.85%)
  • A $200,000 straight bet goes to either Polk for completing the challenge or Perkins if Polk fails to complete it
  • A monthly body fat scan will be posted to track Polk’s progress

No Strangers To Props

The bet couldn’t involve more perfect participants. Both Polk and Perkins were participants in some of the more “famous” prop bets in the poker world recently.

Four years ago, Elky and Polk were heads up in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop event when a prop bet between the two was made. It was simple. The runner-up simply had to adopt the winner’s hairstyle.

When Polk took down the tournament, Elky made good on his promise and was rocking the staple Doug Polk cut.

More recently, Perkins was behind the Ultimate Sweat challenge that involved Matt and Jamie Staples that took the poker world by storm. Jamie wanted to lose weight while Matt was looking to pack on the pounds.

So, Perkins laid $150,000 against the brothers’ $3,000 and the two had to get within one pound of each other’s weight. The two eventually reached their goal and won the $150,000 prize and celebrated with a greasy pizza.

Do you think Polk can shred his body fat and win the $200,000 prize?
