According to the NY Post:
Eric Arty, 18, beat his pals — who each ponied up $100 — to win the jackpot as well as the affections of glamorous global-studies teacher Julie Warning, 26.
“It was a bet with a group of his friends,” said Andrew Cabrera, a junior at Manhattan Theater Lab HS, where Warning worked until Tuesday, when she was reassigned to an administrative job
They gave him the $500 [pot],’’ Cabrera said, referring to Eric and the four other contenders who made their wager about three months into the school year
Cabrera dished yesterday that Arty began the race as a long shot. “He would go after class and basically try to seduce her,’’ he said. “I don’t know if she knew [about the bet]. They were all trying to get with her. One of his [Arty’s] friends flirted with her more than anyone — I thought he would be the one, but Eric came out of nowhere and got her.”
What an underdog story! Odds stacked. No one gave him even a chance to win. Yet, he still came out on top. Love it. Sucks that this Warning chick will never teach again, but still, I absolutely love it.
Based on the photo below, what are your thoughts on the quality his conquest? I think we'd all agree that Arty made the right decision, despite the fact that she f*cking sucks at smiling.
