Earlier this week a poster on RealityFanForum.com published a photograph of what appears to be poker players Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle at LAX during an Amazing Race event.
Ho was the last woman to be eliminated in the 2007 WSOP Main Event while Michelle managed the same feat in 2008. Both players are close friends and both have television experience, which might be seen as a bonus by Amazing Race casting directors.
The rumor seems viable considering both players were absent from this year's Main Event and 15th Season of The Amazing Race was scheduled to be filmed over the summer.
Michelle's own Twitter mentioned that she would be gone for at least a month, "filming a big project." The only thing that doesn't seem to add up is that in her most recent Tweet Michelle mentioned that she was enjoying being on a set again. The Amazing Race, it has to be assumed, would not have a set.
We contacted poker agency Suited Connections, of which Michelle is affiliated, but they were unable to comment on the situation.
When contestants compete in The Amazing Race they are sequestered, meaning they have no contact with the outside world until filming is complete.
It might be awhile until we get the official confirmation on whether the pair will actually star in the popular reality TV show.
