Sean Kingston Teams Up With DietBet
04 / 10 / 13
Sean Kingston announced he is teaming up with DietBet, an online social dieting company, to reach his final weight goal prior to the launch of his third album "Back 2 Life" this summer. Kingston is encouraging his millions of fans to join him in the four-week-long game, where one lucky fan will have the chance to win more than his or her share of the pot: a meet-and-greet with the celebrity icon.
Although Kingston previously struggled with his weight, the charismatic young singer lost 75 pounds over the past year by working out and eating healthier. He is turning to DietBet and his fans for motivation to drop the final 10 pounds.
The rules for a DietBet are simple. Players each bet money into the pot ($50 apiece in the case of the Sean Kingston game) and everyone who loses four percent of their starting weight splits the pot equally at the end of the four weeks. Unlike The Biggest Loser, DietBet is not winner-take-all; there can be many winners. In addition to a portion of the pot, players who win the DietBet have the chance to receive an autographed copy of Kingston's latest album, tickets to his upcoming tour and other prizes. The game kicks off on April 16th and runs through May 16th.
"I'm committed to making positive changes in my life, and I've made my health a priority," said Kingston. "Working with DietBet is a new fun way to reach my goal. It gives me the chance to not only give my fans a behind-the-scenes look at what choices I'm making when it comes to food and exercise, but also makes me accountable for following through."
