Elizabeth Competes at Dancing With the Stars

On April 17th, 2008, oddsmakers are hesitant to believe that celebrity poker player and American Pie star Shannon Elizabeth has the staying power to survive Dancing With the Stars. Gambling911's website's battle cry is to call in your votes for Shannon Elizabeth. Gambling Senior Editor Payton O'Brien said that they want Elizabeth to win and the whole poker community should unite in supporting Elizabeth in this endeavor.

The poker industry is currently pushing to cancel the poker ban(UIGEA), thanks to the selfless efforts of Congressman Barney Frank from the Democratic Party and Ron Paul from the Republican Party. Presently, Ms. Elizabeth has failed to make the grade as easily compared with her fellow competitors like Kristi Yamaguchi, which has -125 odds and Jason Taylor with +125 odds.

Shannon Elizabeth's performance at the poker table has not translated into dancing success in the show even though some fans argued that she is holding well in the show. But problems continue to bother the young star like when her dance partner Derek Hough fell victim to food poisoning. Fortunately, he was able to recover and dance the samba with Shannon Elizabeth. As of April 17th, Shannon Elizabeth has +1000 betting odds.
