If you don’t know who Peter Facinelli is… maybe this picture will remind you where you saw him.
YES! He’s our Edward’s foster dad. Our very own Dr. Carlisle Cullen! 🙂
So what’s the bet?
Here’s a scoop from MTV.com:
Peter Facinelli is part of the hottest franchise in Hollywood. He’s married to the beautiful Jennie Garth. He gets to walk the red carpet at events like the MTV Movie Awards.
So why does he want to watch a grown man dance in a bikini — and how can you help?
If you have a Twitter account — or were thinking about getting one — the affable actor is asking you to follow him (@peterfacinelli.). With mere hours remaining in a wager that has swept across the Twitterverse, the “Twilight” actor spoke to MTV News about his unorthodox bet, whether we’ll ever see him in a bikini and how one lucky fan can someday clone their very own Robert Pattinson.
MTV: How’s it going, Peter?
Peter Facinelli: It’s going good — but I need more Twitter followers!
MTV: Yeah, as of Wednesday morning [June 17], you’re at 205,000. You’re not even halfway there!
Facinelli: I know, man. I think Twitter’s broken.
MTV: Explain the contest for us.
Facinelli: Rob DeFranco [@211me] is a friend of mine. He was at my house and saw the backing of my chair from “Twilight” — that piece of fabric that says my name and says “Twilight” on it. He asked if he could have it, and Rob is a betting man, so when I said no, he said, “Well, I’ll bet you for it.”
MTV: And how did Twitter get involved?
Facinelli: I had just joined Twitter, so he bet me that I couldn’t get 500,000 followers in a week. I let the fans decide what Rob DeFranco has to do if he loses — and the sick and twisted minds of my Twitter followers decided that he’d have to dance down Hollywood Boulevard in a bikini singing [Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”] with a sign that says “Twitter me.” So I think I got the better end of that deal.
Facinelli: Yeah. The fans have been having fun with the contest, and I decided last night that if I’m going to lose this chair backing anyway, I’d rather have a fan get it than my friend Rob. So I threw in some incentive last night — if we hit 500,000 by Friday, then I’ll give away the backing of my chair to one of my followers.
So what are you waiting for???? Follow him on Twitter now!
