So Who Won the Super Bowl Prop Bet Over Katy Perry’s Cleavage?

You can bet on anything when it comes to the Super Bow. An online bookie even set odds on Katy Perry’s cleavage.

  • Would she show cleave? -500
  • Would she keep covered up? +350

In plain language, if you bet “no,” you’d win $350. If you bet “yes,” you’d need to put down $500 just to get $100 back.

So when Katy came out in this costume…

Katy Perry (Super Bowl)


…the people at had a problem.  Let’s go to the dictionary.

Cleavage (klee’-vij): noun. The depression between a woman’s breasts especially when made visible by a low-cut neckline.

Cut’n’dry, right? Not so fast. Let’s go to the Oxford English Dictionary: The hollow between a woman’s breasts when supported, especially as exposed by a low-cut garment.

There’s your issue. “When supported.” While we do see a depression/hollow, the anti-cleavage insisted that since her boobs weren’t pushed together, there technically wasn’t any cleavage at all.

So what did BetOnline decided to do? Pay both sides of the bet. Everyone wins. (Via TMZ)

And what about the dancing sharks that forgot their dance routine? Did anyone bet on them?
