Maria Menounos is certainly a woman of her word. The Extra co-host, 33, wore a skimpy red, white and blue New York giants bikini in the middle of Times Square on Monday (February 6, 2012) after losing a Super Bowl bet with Aj Calloway, reports US Weekly magazine.
The television presenter had wagered that Tom Brady's New England Patriots would win in Indianapolis on Sunday, but it was the Giants who eventually triumphed 21-17. Tweeting after the game, Maria told followers, "Just finished self-tanning. Lost the bet with AJ Calloway and now I have to wear a Giants bikini in New York.The loss was devastating today". Prior to revealing her bikini-body in the chilly New York weather on Monday, she tweeted, "today is gonna stink. At least it's not bitter cold there.Problem with this bikini thing? I ate everything you wouldn't eat in major quantities to prove my confidence in winning.Now it'll be on display". Meanwhile, her co-host Mario Lopez joined in the fun, tweeting, "My girl mariamenounos lost a Super Bowl bet & had to wear a NY Giants bikini! Big props..Look great.
Though Menounos is best known in America for her work on the Today Show, Access Hollywood and Extra, she also hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006, in Athens, Greece.
