Move over Annie Duke (Celebrity Apprentice), Maria Ho (Amazing Race) and now Daniel Negreanu (The Real World), Phil Hellmuth is about to top all of you it seems.

The UltimateBet.com Spokesperson and still the leading bracelet winner of the World Series of Poker has just announced he will be appearing in - not one - but TWO reality series.

Phil Hellmuth revealed on his Twitter page this week:

"Just confirmed that I will be playing poker with Gene Simmons on his reality show "Family Jewels." Scott Ian, and Meatloaf may be in game..."

He will also be appearing on Shaquille O'Neal's new reality series. 

"Going to Vegas to film for Shaq's reality show on Monday with Oscar De Lahoya, Shaq, Mike the mouth, and Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson..."

"Shaq Vs.," which was set to premiere Aug. 18 at 9 p.m. ET with Shaq taking on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in football.

Future episodes of the hour-long show will feature Shaq against Olympic swimming sensation Michael Phelps, boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols, tennis star Serena Williams and beach volleyball Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.

Shaq told USA Today that he came up with the idea as a way to train for the NBA season. Shaq figured Americans "would really want to see an athlete play another sport," according to the newspaper. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Shaq's new team, have cleared the 37-year-old O'Neal to take part in the show.

He is scheduled to report for the Cavs' opening of training camp on Sept. 15.
