A few poker players have made an appearance on television and movies over the past few years and it seems as though poker pros Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho will be next to appear on the television screen.
Information has been gathered from a number of sources and it appears that Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho will be appearing in the upcoming season of the CBS hit The Amazing Race. Sources near the CBS camp have confirmed that two female poker pros will create a team on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race although they have released the identities of the two ladies.
Bluff Magazine reported information from RealityFanForum that suggests the two poker pros are going to be on the television show. A poster on the forum website took photos of contestants as the race began and one of the photos clearly shows Maria Ho. Rumors have surfaced that Tiffany Michelle is her partner because of what she stated on her blog recently.
Michelle decided to not participate in the World Series of Poker Main Event and she commented on her blog: Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d have to be something pretty big to deter me from the WSOP Championship Event this year and trust me, IT IS!Ã‚Â I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t disclose much right now but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be leavingÃ‚Â to film a project for a month and it conflicts with the Main Event.Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Ã‚Â This project and my part are very huge and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an opportunity is just too good to pass up.Ã‚Â At the end of the day, acting and performing have always been my passion, in fact its how I fell into poker to begin with and I never want to lose sight of that part of my life and career.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Filming began on July 12th in Los Angeles for The Amazing Race and the Race began on the 15th. More information was found on MichelleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Twitter from July 13th that stated she was filming a project so all signs point to the two being on the show but nothing has been confirmed.
