People will bet on anything when it comes to the Super Bowl - from who wins, to the point spread, to who is named MVP - to more esoteric bets, know as "prop bets." These can be about anything, from who wins the coin flip, to how many times the broadcast cameras show Taylor Swift, to how long the performance of the National Anthem takes. It's this last one that interested Rex Linn.
Rex is the boyfriend of Reba McEntire, who just happened to be named the performer for the Star Spangled Banner before this year's Super Bowl. With their closeness, would it be fair to assume that Rex might have some inside information as to exactly how long her performance would last?
The couple put on a little skit on Instagram, lip-syncing to a "Friends" episode, "The One with All the Resolutions," where Joey and Rachel go back and forth about keeping the same secret. Alongside the clip, Reba wrote "When Rex wants to bet on the national anthem length."
It's not known whether Rex used his inside info to lay a bet on the Anthem's length, but for those that did: Reba's performance took exactly 1:36.
