MTV: How’s it going, Peter?
Peter Facinelli: It’s going good — but I need more Twitter followers!
MTV: Yeah, as of Wednesday morning [June 17], you’re at 205,000. You’re not even halfway there!
Facinelli: I know, man. I think Twitter’s broken.
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.
