Doing these type of filming footage during a tourney, making them having to talk about what was happening and always having cameras around them to get the best moments of the day should have been really annoying. Stars like this always like this type of action, but I guess this must have been an increased effort on the tourney. The pressure increases, being one more thing that the players have to deal with. Someone like Liv must be more than used to have cameras around her, but still it must have tired her a lot during the event.

probably this show will be watched just to jerk at liv boeree. other than that there's not a lot to see imo. anyway i have no worries since in my country porn is prohibited, so no liv for me i think whatever the concept is it's a good thing to try something new- just do things...still i think the show would be a better success if ti was called not "i bet my life", but "i spread my legs"

Posted by bullettooth1: wow! she must be on a real downswing to consider doing something so rediculous. she must need the money. or she must be narcissistic. she'll need therapy for that condition lol.
Probably not a downswing. She's always wanted TV work.
She was on a gameshow in the UK long before her poker career started. Also, the only reason she started playing poker in the first place was because she was a contestant on a reality show where a group of poker newbies were taught to play poker by pros. She was tutored by Annie Duke.

Some reality shows are better than others, we'll have to see how this one fares. Some I found interesting for the travel scenery (The Amazing Race) and some I find to be good eye candy for my middle-aged brain (Big Brother), while others like The Batchelor just churn my stomach. Maybe it won't be so bad after all - or maybe it'll be cancelled after three episodes!

Reality T.V. might interest me if it were about the actual behind the scenes footage of various poker players and what they do to prep, practice, etc. before and in the midst of playing these tournaments. As for wanting to watch Liv and her boyfriend's personal as stated above, Who Cares? I can't stand shows ;like the Tradashians, Jersey Whores or any of that poop TV.
