Poker girls eliminated from The Amazing Race

Poker girls eliminated from The Amazing Race

Wednesday, 4 November 2009

Poker pros Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho have finally bowed out of TV show The Amazing Race. The pair couldn’t complete a pair of challenges relating to golf and a fairground test your strength machine and paid the penalty with elimination. The duo exceeded the expectations of many though, remaining in the competition until the middle of week seven.

The stay wasn’t without controversy though. In the opening episode the pair claimed to be charity workers rather than poker players. Talking to Poker Listings, Michelle defended the move saying, “We were coming from a strategic point of view and we just wanted to highlight another part of our lives”. Their ruse was soon scuppered after they were recognised by a poker fan at an airport.

The pair will return to the poker circuit at the British Columbia Poker Championships in Vancouver before heading to the Bellagio for the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond Classic.
