A few years ago, Sir Richard Branson and AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes made a bet. The loser would have to dress up as a female flight attendant and serve drinks on a flight on the airline of the winner.

Now, what does this 6-year-old story has to do with cigars? Yesterday, Steve Saka, Nimish Desai aka Nimmy D and Abe Dababneh from the Smoke Inn chain of shops in Southern Florida have made a bet. All three men could lose some weight and agreed to go on a four-month weight loss challenge. The one that loses the biggest percentage of body weight in those for months gets $1000 from both the others.

To spice things up, Dababneh came up with an addition to the bet. If any of them won’t lose a minimum of 15% of their body weight, they will do a cigar event for the others in full drag. And if that’s not a motivation for the three to stick to a diet, then I don’t know what it. On the other hand, it’s probably also motivation for everybody else to feed Saka, Dababneh and Desai alcohol and fatty foods because who doesn’t want to see that?
