Can Tiffany Michelle Keep Up To The Pace In "The Amazing Race"?

Posted at 01:19 2009-07-30
We have all heard of the TV show “The Amazing Race”. Promise people an obscene amount of money and watch them travel all over the globe in a quest to win it. Well on September 27th, when the 15th instalment of the CBS reality show kicks off, ex-PokerNews presenter and infamous poker “pro”, Tiffany Michelle will be part of the series! The Ultimate Bet Pro will need to have all of her best poker wits about her if she is going to take home the big prize! PokerNetwork can confirm that Michelle is among the cast for the TV show which has been extremely popular in the US, even winning an Emmy.
The rumours going around at the moment suggest that Michelle will team up with Maria Ho on this fantastic race around the globe. CBS has not released the cast of characters who will battle against the duo on the “Amazing Race.”
Michelle and Ho apart from having spectacular surnames when put together, represent the Last Women Standing in the 2008 and 2007 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Events, respectively. Michelle, known in the poker world as “Hot Chips,” (allegedly due to her fetish with the traditional English snack) scored a very pleasurable $334,000 for her 17th place finish in the 2008 WSOP Main Event. I am sure you will agree that it is not her play that stuck in the hearts and minds of poker fans worldwide but more the situation when she called the clock in a key hand at a vital stage of the tournament featuring Scott Montgomery and Paul Snead.
Montgomery had moved in with {Ax}{4x} after a flop of {jx}{3x}{Tx} against Snead’s {Jx}{7x}. It would cost Snead a decent chunk of his stack to make the call and because of this was an extremely crucial moment for both players Michelle, who appeared somewhat ambivalent of the player’s situation, called the clock and Snead called Montgomery, only to be a victim of an ace on the river. November Nine member Craig Marquis quipped, “Really not cool” to Michelle after the hand was over.
Ho earned $237,000 for her 38th place in the 2007 WSOP Main Event. She has been back in the spot light this year after finishing a very commendable 11th in the $10,000 buy-in World Championship of Limit Hold’em during the WSOP for a very tidy $41,000.
In case you have been living under a rock since 2001, “The Amazing Race” is one of reality television’s most well-known brands. This year, Phil Keoghan (The Host) is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program.
In previous seasons,“The Amazing Race” has had first prizes of up to a million dollars! The show works quite simply, teams of two race around the world and attempt to beat their competitors and pass some challenges on the way. At the end of the majority of legs, the last team to arrive is eliminated. Last season, countries visited included Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Romania, Russia, India, Thailand, and China. The contestants travelled over 64,000km and, in the end, siblings Tammy and Victor crossed the finish line first in Hawaii.
Reportedly joining Michelle and Ho on the show is a host of exciting stars from all facets of the entertainment industry; they are believe to include two Harlem Globetrotters, Miss America 2004, and a lesbian Cirque de Soleil couple appearing on show.
Does Tiffany Michelle have what it takes to take down the big prize? We’ll certainly keep an eye on her progress when the new series gets underway on the 27th of September!
