Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho made a big comeback to stay alive on Episode 1 of The Amazing Race last night.
Behind the scenes, the two played up their mental toughness as poker pros and ability to manipulate games as a distinct edge they’d have over the competition. But once the grueling competition started, that kinda went by the wayside. They also tried to keep their professions under wraps, but someone recognized TM at an airport and within 24 hours, their cover was blown.
Much like Annie Duke had Joan Rivers to foil her more abrasive on-camera persona on The Celebrity Apprentice, Tiffany Michelle has a good foil in this total douchebag lawyer guy. So that’s good.
Regardless, glad to see the girls make it through. But if this week is any indication, it might be a rough go of it for Michelle and Ho. Above is their post-race interview.
What do you think of the episode? How did TM and Hooooooo! rep themselves? Comment away…
