Double Trouble

A British guy is adding a new twist to reality TV. Instead of simply risking the usual fare (self esteem, reputation, future social life, sexual orientation), Ashley Revel is going to risk every pound he’s got. Revel plans to travel to Vegas (along with a camera crew) where he will bet everything he’s got (about $138,000) on one spin of the roulette wheel.

I am a Vegas addict and place video poker just under food on my personal Maslow’s hierarchy. But this guy should reconsider for two reason. One, roulette is for wimps. And two, with the money he is risking, he could get more than 6,900 lapdances. That would be a lot more fun and frankly, would make much better TV. Either way, I hope he wins. Otherwise in this case, what happens in Vegas will stay with him the rest of his life.

Concentration is important!
