Peter Facinelli: 'You might be able to clone Rob Pattinson if you own the back of my chair'
MTV talked to Peter Facinelli about his now-infamous Twitter bet. According to him, one of his follower will get his Twilight chair backing if he wins the bet.
MTV: Explain the contest for us.
Facinelli: Rob DeFranco [@211me] is a friend of mine. He was at my house and saw the backing of my chair from "Twilight" — that piece of fabric that says my name and says "Twilight" on it. He asked if he could have it, and Rob is a betting man, so when I said no, he said, "Well, I'll bet you for it."
MTV: And how did Twitter get involved?
Facinelli: I had just joined Twitter, so he bet me that I couldn't get 500,000 followers in a week. I let the fans decide what Rob DeFranco has to do if he loses — and the sick and twisted minds of my Twitter followers decided that he'd have to dance down Hollywood Boulevard in a bikini singing [Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)"] with a sign that says "Twitter me." So I think I got the better end of that deal.
MTV: And if that happens, you're going to give away the chair back to a fan?
Facinelli: Yeah. The fans have been having fun with the contest, and I decided last night that if I'm going to lose this chair backing anyway, I'd rather have a fan get it than my friend Rob. So I threw in some incentive last night — if we hit 500,000 by Friday, then I'll give away the backing of my chair to one of my followers.
MTV: Yeah, and the Twilighters all want the back of your chair really badly.
Facinelli: Especially since Rob Pattinson sat on my chair. It has some RPattz sweat on it.
MTV: Oh God. The winner could hire some CSI guys to remove the hairs and DNA.
Facinelli: Definitely. One day, in the future, you might be able to clone Rob Pattinson if you own the back of my chair. That's all I'm saying.
MTV: What would Dr. Carlisle Cullen have to say about such a contest?
Facinelli: Carlisle likes a good game. I think he'd be excited. I think Carlisle would totally follow me. And he's got a good sense of humor — so he'd want to watch Rob DeFranco dance down Hollywood Boulevard in a bikini.
