Survey respondees suggest Spears’ erratic behaviour would be her downfall
Wednesday 28th February 2007
Internet poker website UltimateBet has released the results of its latest online poker player survey.
The questionnaire asked: 'Which celebrity would you most like to challenge in a must-win Texas Hold 'em poker tournament?' Perhaps unsurprisingly, the celeb topping the list of poker players’ most desired and easily beatable rivals was none other than the erratic former pop princess and column-inch-grabber, Britney Spears.
UltimateBet surveyed in excess of 12,000 of its online poker players to find out which celebrity they would like to see seated across from at the felt and a whopping per cent choose bald rehab-dodging singer Britney Spears. Her recent bizarre activities were taken as evidence of potentially weak poker play.
'Given her erratic behavior, it's evident that most folks consider Britney a fish – easy to beat,' commented UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean.
'What's fascinating,” added MacLean, “is that most players are willing to endure staring at a bald Britney in order to win the tournament. Now that's dedication.'
Behind Britney were Linsday Lohan at 21 percent, Paris Hilton at 15 percent and Sienna Miller at seven percent. Five percent chose other celebrities.
