Millions of people know William Hung from his 2004 American Idol audition but few people know how passionate he is about the game of poker. In fact, during an interview with Maria Ho at the 2015 Battle of Malta, Hung said he would love to become a poker pro and travel the world playing cards and seeing new cities. This is Hung's first time in Europe and he says that if he does get knocked out of the Battle of Malta Main Event, the first thing he'll do is check out the country's amazing historical sites. William Hung embodies the BOM spirit. He's positive, enthusiastic and he's not afraid of taking chances in order to pursue what he's passionate about. Hung is firing his second bullet of this year's BOM and we wish him the best.
