Penn lost on 'Dancing,' but Teller lost $5K

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Penn Jillette lost on ‘‘Dancing With the Stars,’’ so his comedy-and-magic partner Teller lost $5,000.

Teller had placed a bet on Jillette to conquer the sixth season of the popular ABC dance competition. The odds against Jillette were 30-1 so Teller stood to win $150,000.

Teller said he doesn’t regret losing cash during Jillette’s elimination on Tuesday’s results show.

‘‘I have paid that kind of money for ringside seats for famous events, you know, and I think paying five grand to have a prime ringside seat to the dance of the century was a good deal,’’ he said by phone from Las Vegas.

He said his 53-year-old buddy ‘‘danced amazingly. He was perfectly in time, his footwork was amazing. I think the judges just have a blind spot for grace in men with size 14 shoes.’’
