Poker Player Jim Rice on Survivor 23: South Pacific

Meet Jim Rice: poker player, marijuana dispenser, next Survivor champ?

Survivor 23: South Pacific announced its cast, and “poker player” Jim Rice is among the contestants.

Rice you may not remember from winning a Festa al Lago prelim event in 2006 or final table-ing a Heartland Poker Tour tournament this year.

Jim, who is good friends with Paul Wascika, also played the Main Event this year at the World Series of Poker. He claims on his CBS Survivor bio page to have won “over 40″ poker tournaments (we’re assuming online).

Aside from poker, Jim owns/operates a medicinal marijuana shop in Colorado. We think he owns this shop with Wasicka but have not confirmed that yet.

While we expect Jim to out-perform Jean-Robert Bellande‘s Survivor performance, we don’t expect him to be more entertaining. Can’t top JRB.
