Update on the Staples/ Perkins Prop Bet

Jaime Staples' recent blog gets us up to date with his recent weigh in— so we can keep tabs on his crazy prop bet with his brother and Bill Perkins that was born out of StreamBoat 2017.

Basically the Staples brothers Jaime and Matt, need to get within one pound of bodyweight of each other within a year. It’s going to be no mean feat considering there is a quite a discrepancy between the two. At the start of the bet, Jaime weighed around 310 lbs and Matt 135 lbs.

Check out their recent weigh ins below.

HashTag King Takes Things Too Far on Poker Night In America

Things took an ugly turn over on Poker Night in America as Hashtag King aka Salomon Ponte got vulgar and crossed the line — goading Shaun Deeb by calling his wife Ashley offensive names.

Somehow Deeb manages to keep his cool and yet despite busting to Deeb, Ponte gets desperate and starts to try and sell off his phone, watch and passport in the hopes to be able to afford the rebuy. Unsurprisingly Deeb, nor anyone else seemed to take him up on the offer.

In the best round up of what actually went down, check out Joey Ingram’s break down.

It then seems Ponte goes to find Deeb to apologise — although it is hard to say if he is being sincere or not — in another cringe-worthy exchange.

Is it just me, or is it nice to see Cate Hall not at the centre of a twitter controversy for once?

Natasha Mercier Gets Blocked On Twitter by Cate Hall

And she doesn’t know why.

It seems that Cate Hall has had a twitter purge and gone and blocked at least 200 of her followers — including Natasha Mercier.

It seems it all stemmed from another disagreement with Matt Glantz (that you can read on twitter below) but it’s still hard to see how Mercier is involved.
