A Virginia man followed through on a bet and became homeless for a week. Chris Jollay went from a comfortable bed to the streets of Washington D.C. The 36-year-old government contractor lost a bet with a former college roommate over which of their favorite baseball teams would have a better season.

With a backpack, a blanket and $20, Jollay slept on park benches and spent the rest of the week on the move. Jollay says by the end of the week, hygiene definitely became an issue.
