Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I've got a possible casting spoiler. Here's my detective work.

Background: I play poker on a pretty regular basis and am active on a message board. A few months ago former Survivor: China contestant and professional poker pro Jean-Robert Bellande started a thread requesting help for input on who we as a poker community think would be a good casting decision for a reality show. He lists qualifications including it must be two women. Here is a link to that thread:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/casting-2-hot-poker-girls-reality-show-483388/

Now, about three weeks ago word came out that last year's final female remaining in the World Series of Poker main event, Tiffany Michelle, would not return to play the event this year. It's curious because she could get backing for the $10,000 event from any of the major sites. She wrote a statement saying she had a chance to travel and do some acting. Very vague. Here's that thread:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/has-story-tiffany-michelle-wimping-out-wsop-main-event-been-covered-yet-527817/

Finally, this week's podcast on PokerRoad Radio with Norman Chad has rumors of her being on TAR. It's on itunes if you have interest.

Final thoughts: with Jean-Robert having been on Survivor we know there have been cross-casting instances before. This smells pretty strong to me. I'd wager a solid amount Tiffany Michelle is going to be on TAR and that they will leave soon considering the main event just ended yesterday.

Here's Tiffany at one of her finer moments:

Just my opinion. Take it for what it's worth. Cheers guys!

Thanks a million Looosekanen  :jam:

That is a very compelling story and she looks like a solid casting target.

Thank you loosekanen!! :waves:

 I was just given secondary confirmation of two poker/casino women as well. And a possible young southern girls team.

Not sure where to put this, but a friend of mine knows someone who is going to be on TAR next season. She and her partner work at a casino in Las Vegas where all of the dealers have big breasts. Apparently the casting folks approached the owners of the casino, but they couldn't do the the show so they directed them to a couple of their employees. That is all I know...  


then I'm reading sucks S19 contestant spoiler thread ..and thought hmm you never know?

Just saw this on poker news, on the live updates. L


OPPER [26 minutes ago]
anyone hear the news? Tif d michele is leaving for survivior?

Tiffany Michelle was the girl got17th place in the main event of WSOP last year. Its kind of flaky post, since anyone can make it up. Then again we did have two poker players on a reality tv show.

It can't be for S19, since they're already filming.

Here's a post from her blog at Ultimate Bet:

Well, well, well…
My summer in Vegas is coming to a close. "A CLOSE?!?!" you say! Although we have the Main Event coming up this week I am officially announcing… (no, not my retirement! Sorry haters, you'll be stuck with my finger-french-fry-lickin'-clock-callin'-heel-clickin'-UB-branded-poker-pwning-face for several years to come)… that I won't be defending my title as The Last Woman Standing or giving that darn final table another crack… at least not this year. GASP!!!
It'd have to be something pretty big to deter me from the WSOP Championship Event this year and trust me, IT IS! I can't disclose much right now but I'll be leaving the country to film a project for a month and it conflicts with the Main Event. Se la vie! I figure that poker isn't going anywhere and the WSOP Main Event comes around EVERY SINGLE YEAR. This project and my part are very huge and it's an opportunity is just too good to pass up. At the end of the day, acting and performing have always been my passion, in fact it's how I fell into poker to begin with and I never want to lose sight of that part of my life and career.

http://blog.ultimatebet.com/category/team-ub/tiffany-michelle/


And from her twitter feed, yesterday:

I won't be signing at the Deepstacks booth tomorrow afterall, have an emergency to take care of and am heading back to LA. Bye Vegas!
about 20 hours ago from web

http://twitter.com/tiffnymichelle
It's possible she could be in the running for S20, but that doesn't even start filming for about a month, and she wouldn't be back until mid-September, which sounds like a longer time frame than she's implying. She also implies it's an acting job. Still, possible.

When Phil Keoghan got the call Thursday telling him he’d been nominated for an Emmy, the host of “The Amazing Race” says he was standing in his garage in his underwear, scraping the walls in preparation for a home renovation.

Sure sounds like he isn't getting ready to race around the world today or tomorrow.  Starting a renovation job just the day before the race starts?
