Jaime Staples’ Crazy Prop Bet

Streamboat 2017 is now over and it comes as no surprise that a prop bet has emerged from the ashes as billionaire Bill Perkins is known for his penchant for that kind of bet.

Within one year, bothers Jamie & Matt Staples (who were part of team Streamboat 2017) need to get within one pound of bodyweight of each other, which will be no mean feat considering there is a quite a discrepancy between the two — Jaime weighs around 310 lbs and Matt 135 lbs. Mental!

It seems that one hell of a diet plan is going to be needed for the pair. Wishing both the bros the best of luck!
