Maria Menounos wears Giants bikini in Times Square after Patriots loss

Last seen at the Super Bowl Tebowing with the man himself, "Extra" correspondent Maria Menounos was back in New York on Monday, standing in the middle of Times Square donning a red and blue bikini.

The 33-year-old Massachusetts native stripped down to the bikini due to a lost Super Bowl wager on her New England Patriots. Menounos lost the bet to colleague A.J. Calloway, who picked his hometown New York Giants.

If Calloway had lost, he would have worn a New England Patriots cheerleader outfit. Menounos had to wear the bikini, though she was able to keep warm (and give a shout-out to Tom Brady) by wearing black UGGs during the taping.

"I hate bets," Menounos said as she removed the robe. "I'm never doing this again."

How did Mario Lopez escape this bet? Either way, he was seeing one of his colleagues in a bikini or another dressed up like a cheerleader, all while he was standing comfortably in a trench coat. That doesn't seem fair. The least they could have done is made him reprise his ballet performance from "Saved By The Bell."
