The following list does not discriminate, and bluntly includes almost any chick hostess who have ever presented a poker game. Why? Because the casting crews of Poker After Dark, The World Poker Tour etc. are just that good. For some reason, it is in the wondrous world of poker the most beautiful television personalities can be found. And here they are.
8. Layla Kayleigh
Hosting the season 6 World Poker Tournament in 2007, this British TV personality rose to instant popularity among viewers. Not so much for her sophisticated and in-depth analysis of the game, but more so for her undeniable sex appeal.
7. Marianela Pereyra
Born in Argentina and being the daughter of tango dancers led Marianela to the natural choice of a career in entertainment. With some wit and a smoking hot look, Marianela landed a gig as hostess of season 3 for the Poker After Dark TV show.
6. Leeann Tweeden
Once a Hooters Girl, Leeann Tweeden was announced as the new hostess for Poker After Dark season 4 in 2008. There we’re sure she still served one or two pitchers to the players.
5. Sabina Gadecki
Gadecki hosted the 5th season of the WPT together with Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten. This former pageant queen actress and model has been featured magazines like Redbook and Premiere.
4. Courtney Friel
Replacing Shana Hiatt couldn’t have been an easy task, but when Friel in 2005-2006 hosted the 4th season of the WPT she was welcomed by the poker world with open arms. Shocker!
3. Amanda Leatherman
One of few veterans in the poker industry, Leatherman was introduced to the game a couple of years back, now not only hosting the live updates if the WPT 2008 but also playing the occational tourney.
2. Brandi Williams
With nicknames like ‘Queen of Hearts’ and ‘Princess of Poker’, Williams is best known for hosting the TV show The Ultimate Poker Challenge, and wearing some jaw-droppingly revealing outfits.
1. Shana Hiatt
Perhaps not the best poser in the world, nor gifted with the typical super model look, but Shana Hiatt still outperforms her collegeues with a charming personality, some actual knowledge of the game, and super cut looks.
