9/11/09 – The widespread speculation that women poker stars Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle had been signed up for the next Amazing Race television program has been officially confirmed.
 
The CBS television network confirmed this week that the two will appear in season 15 of the popular program, which sees contestants racing around the world. The killer instinct honed by playing major tournament poker will undoubtedly stand the two poker pros in good stead.

"We're excited to go out there and represent for the women," said Michelle on CBS.com. "No female team has ever won and we're used to doing what no other women are doing."
 
The duo will face some formidable opposition; also taking part in the season are two members of the Harlem Globetrotters, a former Miss America and her husband, dating aspiring country singers and eight other teams.
 
Season 15 of the The Amazing Race starts flighting on September 27 on CBS in the United States.
