Prepare to be emotionally scarred.
Brian Zembic proves that people will do anything for money. Zebic is a Canadian magician and professional high-stakes gambler specializing in blackjack and backgammon. He’s also crazy as f*ck.
After his friend promised him to pay up $100,000, Zembic got a pretty impressive boob job without much thought. Crazy, right? The backstory is even more insane.
The bet was made in 1997 during a European vacation. “I was with two friends and his girlfriend at the time was flaunting her boobs,” Zembia explained. “And I said to my friend, ‘If I had boobs like hers I could get just as much attention as she would.’”
Right — we’ve all heard that before. But unlike Zembic, most people never act on the observation. When his friend asked him to prove it, Zembic apparently couldn’t say no. They agreed on a $100,000 price tag and when the guys returned back to the U.S., the Canadian magician went to visit a plastic surgeon in New York. As luck would have it, the surgeon was also a gambler. The two men placed another bet and after winning a few games of backgammon, Zembic won himself a free pair of 38C boobs.
“The first time I showed my friend, he laughed for 10 minutes and said, ‘That is the best $100,000 I’ve ever lost,'” he explained. Clearly this guy is easily entertained. He just threw away $100k on fake man boobs — is that really the best money you’ve ever spent?!
Regardless of how disturbing you find this story, Zembic still has the implants nearly 20 year later. “It’s a normal part of my life,” he said in an interview with Inside Edition in 2013. “It really is, as sick as is it’s normal.”
Did we mention part of the original bet was that Zembic would get an additional $10,000 for every year he keeps them? Yeah — that makes more sense.
