Jon Gosselin always seemed like a broken man… a man who had reluctantly agreed to have a third child with his nagging wife and instead knocked her up with sextuplets, thanks in part to in vitro. The silver lining around the dark kid cloud was scoring a reality show that would put some cash in Jon and Kate’s pockets. Even so, during the Jon and Kate Plus Eight heyday, Jon Gosselin was a tragic figure – a man who passively accepted his circumstances, slouching on the couch next to Kate, nodding reflexively as she retold the camera crew of their day’s events.
Now, it seems, Jon has got his groove back. The guy who was once reprimanded by his wife for breathing now has a 22-year-old girlfriend, silver midlife crisis earrings and a closet full of Ed Hardy shirts. The man who was once a bumbling sidekick to his take-charge wife suddenly has been playing hardball – managing to halt production of the newly titled Kate Plus Eight by posting signs around his property prohibiting TLC’s cameras and crew. However, Jon may have taken his new ballsy attitude a little too far when he recently looted their joint account of $230K, leaving Kate with just $1,000.
Jon has clearly become a bit of a loose cannon. Kate is being pushed to the edge. So what’s going to happen to these two next? That’s where Sports Interaction steps in and offers a few Jon and Kate bets amongst the reality TV odds for those who think they might have an idea.
For example, if you think there’s even a remote possibility that Kate will try to sell one of her children on eBay, then check out the sportsbook because it pays out over 1,000:1. Now before you roll your eyes right out of your head, think about it for second. We’ve seen celebrities under extreme stress do some pretty weird things. Think Michael Jackson dangling his baby over a balcony or Hugh Grant scoring a transvestite hooker while he was dating Elizabeth Hurley, or Michael Richards’ racial rant.
And what about Jon? What’s he capable of under this pressure? Well if you think dating Octomom Nadya Suleman, is on the menu, then step up and place your bet. That little publicity stunt would pay out bettors $2,510 on a $10 bet. Or maybe he’ll just take the $230,000 that he recently yanked out of the family account, and go on an epic tear in Las Vegas. If he does, then those who bet on it will walk away with a cool $340 on a $10 bet.
Check out Sports Interaction’s complete Jon Gosselin odds, and see if there’s a longshot in there with your name on it.
