No High Stakes Vanessa, then Who?  0   
Well, they've made it official, A.J. Benza will not return as co-host of the best show on basic cable. It was rumoured that Vanessa Rousso was up for the position but she claims it's not her. It really sucks that A.J. will not be there. Personally, I think he was getting quite the hang of it. So, who do you think it will be? Maybe you've heard/read something already... let's hear it. I wouldn't mind seeing someone like Brad Garrett or maybe even Billy Connally... LOL! Evil

You kidding me? He won't be able to keep away from the table! Big Smile It would be cool to see what he actually is thinking, of course, I think that's obvious... RAISY-DAISY!!! Worship Nice pick, though... hmmm... now that I think about it, I think I'd prefer to see him and Gabe go at it hedz-up. That would be cool. Gabe used to sling chips w/Stu Ungar, ya know. I know, DUH! L8R... Evil

wtf is Dennis Phillips doing there? Will he top the bad performance of Jamie "the best bluffer in the world" Gold?

It really sucks that AJ Benza is leaving and not Gabe Kaplan =p I hate that guy, thinks he knows more than the players sitting at the table...

He does, he knows the hole cards.

And Kaplan is a decent player, played in the WSOP since the late 70s.

Depends on the target of the show.
If the purpose is to reach as more people as possible, Vanessa Rousso or another beautiful woman player is the best.
But because I prefer to learn something new, Hellmuth is ok

Debatable. You only see the host at the beginning of the show, when they do their little speech. The rest of the show they are not visible.
