Although Tom Brady was the MVP of the night after routing the Kansas City Chiefs for his 7th Super Bowl victory, it was another Florida man who may have struck it rich for his on-the-field antics to the tune of $374,000.
31-year-old Yuri Andrade, who hails from Boca Raton, was the upstanding citizen arrested in the 4th quarter of Super Bowl LV after he took the field and made a mad dash for the end zone while stripping off his clothes to reveal a pink unitard underneath.
According to authorities, Andrade was arrested and charged with trespassing before posting a $500 bond and being released around 8 AM on Monday. After being released from jail, Andrade apparently hit up J. Alexander’s restaurant in Tampa for a little wood-fired cuisine. He was spotted by a fan who put the encounter on Instagram and claimed Andrade was bragging that he made the bet of the night.
“Met the Super Bowl streaker at J. Alexander’s Restaurant while having lunch before leaving Tampa. He bet 50k on a prop bet at +750 that there would be a streaker at the Super Bowl,” the Instagram message read.
The man, who posed with a shirtless Andrade explained that, “His buddy went out first as a diversion so he didn’t get caught as quickly as his friend. Cost him 1k to get out of jail so he cleared 374k on the bet!”
It has also been reported that Andrade’s streaking incident was a plant by controversial YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, as Andrade’s pink unitard was emblazoned with Vitaly’s name.
However, if the bet is true, fans online are praising the Super Bowl LV streaker for his amazing efforts.
“This may be the best sports betting moment of all-time. GENIUS,” one user wrote.
