CBS' Emmy Award winning reality series, The Amazing Race, premiers Sunday night with poker pro Maria Ho.  She'll be teamed up with fellow poker player, Tiffany Michelle.  News of their participation on the show first broke over the summer.

CBS says: "These two professional poker players have been friends for over five years and have been going head-to-head at the tables the entire time. From Vegas to Monte Carlo, both have been the last females standing in a male-dominated sport on more than one occasion. Well traveled, extremely competitive and strong-minded, these savvy players can deal with the cards they are dealt and will not be afraid to battle to the end."

Ho and Michelle are hoping to capitalize on the success that poker pro and UltimateBet.com spokesperson Annie Duke enjoyed appearing on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice.

The Amazing Race picked up its 7th Emmy for "Best Reality Show" last week.
