Re: Vanessa Rousso in next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

Instead of baseless bull**** from typical NVGtards, I will preface this by saying I've met her and played with her for a few hours.

She is ok looking, about a 6.5. I would hit it. She is awful at poker and her table chat is annoying.

Your not sure? It's an epic burn. They took photos, looked at them, and then said no to her being in the magazine.

She didnt look that hot anyway---FYI

This might be the only truth in the "VR being a swimsuit model story." Somehow I can totally picture it.

IMO I agree with the "her real shots were rejected" theory. This coulda been because they were awful or just that they didn't fit into the magazine's format correctly. They usually have a bunch of non-model fit people related to sports for an unsponsored pictorial/special article section (ala NBA cheeerleaders, players hot wives, etc...) but these people are somehow groupable & there's always more than one. A single pseudo-attractive poker chick doesn't really fit into that scheme. Sometimes they'll include the odd-girl out towards the back but if they do she's always jaw-dropping hot...Maybe someone at SI at one time thought that there was the possibility of her having a jaw-dropping shoot but it looks like the photos snapped them back to reality. She's good-looking, for a poker player (& far from the most attractive female poker player), but less attractive than the average waitress in a nice restaurant. Just because poker is a pseudo-sport doesn't mean that pseudo-hot should make it in SI. There's a reason that "THE hot chick" in Women's shot put doesn't make it into the swimsuit issue.

I also just don't believe that she woulda been so excited to spread the news about being in the magazine if she knew that it was a paid spot the whole time. I'm guessing that once the news broke & it became widely known in the poker community that she was supposed to be in the issue, Pokerstars had no choice but to try to save some face by paying to have her in once they knew she was rejected. It woulda been worse for them if she didn't appear at all after she blabbed about being in it.

I hope that this weird situation with Vanessa doesn't shut the door on the possibility of a group of actually hot poker chicks making it in a future year!

This is all conjecture though, & if PokerGodEvil actually was there they should have the answer about whether or not it was supposed to be an ad the whole time...

**** me, I'm probably off - SI never has logos in their shots. Looks like it might have been an ad the whole time & they just "forgot" to mention it. Ether way it's still pathetic & makes me wish that "THE hot shot put chick" made it in there instead...

Re: Vanessa Rousso in next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

Whats with the hate for f sakes. So what if its not what everyone expected. Why don't you people bashing the hell out of her show up at the WSOP and tell her what you think? I'm guessin you would not. She's a fellow poker player thats in the SI swimsuit issue. Did she ever admit to anyone anywhere that she was going to be part of the spread? Not that I know of.

Oddly enough I remember her saying that in the link from the OP
(again here:
http://www.pokerstars.tv/movies/4S4/...-4th-2009.html).

She was wearing a straw cowboy hat & was outside in the interview...as you'd expect from the first scene when you click on the video link. Now the link goes to her blog from the next day instead...

anyway, I you want to find out why people think that she made it appear that she was asked to be in the mag by SI & it's probably in this (now totally missing) video. By the time that the video that the link goes to instead was shot, she probably would've known that the pictures weren't going to make it.

I do remember watching that clip and if it has been removed then i'm sure it was removed for that reason. Either way, I just don't get the hate. I've seen her in person, played at the same table with her last year at the WSOP and she's a really nice person. Very pretty too. The hate in here really bothers me but wtf . It is what it is.

Re: Vanessa Rousso in next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

To preface, I think Rousso looks just fine and is a pleasantly attractive young woman.

That said, I thought this sentence from SunSentinel.com, which was lauding the "local girl done good" was hi-larious:

Quote:
She loosens up significantly from her table appearance, which includes a hat, sunglasses, earphones and shirts that go all the way up to her Adam's apple.

shes hot...the voice clearly detracts from the appearance though, and anyone who says shes not attractive is just jumping on the bandwagon

IT'S SPARKY!



not the same fin as in the pic, i know.
he has 10 or so other fins for photo shoots,
that slightly chewed-up one is his, I know that for a fact.

Re: Vanessa Rousso in next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

so it appears this whole thing was blown outta proportion.

Oh well. She should dress a little hotter at tournaments. That's all I can add to this hoopla. she has a nice figure.





she's a mega dork. But I still think she's kinda foxy
