Does this sentence make sense?

Hi! I'm writing a short script for my school's play which is going to be performed in English.
I need to get a correction of the sentence that I've made.
So please help me if you are a native English speaker!!
This is supposed to be very casual and colloquial:

(Jack is pretty positive that Steve is gay so Jack tells this line to
his friends)
Jack: "I'll bet five bucks says Steve's gay."

Does this sentence make sense?
If it seems awkard, could you possibly correct it so that it makes more sense?
Will "Five bucks says he's gay!" be better?
Which one makes more sense?

"Five bucks says he's gay." is better. To make the first one correct, you would have to change it to "I bet five bucks that Steve is gay."

lol five quid says he's gay?

Do they typically teach American English in Korean schools? I know my German friends learn English English... In California they don't like, teach English...

lol sorry, cheap joke... I'm saving up for a new car stereo.

<Do they typically teach American English in Korean schools?>
Yes, we usually learn American English here in Korea.
But fancy British accent is getting popular these days. ^^*
