Poker Pro Vanessa Rousso Featured Panelist on E! Show Tonight

Will Appear on New Series Titled Bank of Hollywood


Vanessa RoussoVanessa Rousso has been able to capitalize upon her marketability, having snagged such key sponsors as PokerStars and GoDaddy, and now she’s moving into mainstream television. Tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT, E! Entertainment Television is premiering a new series called Bank of Hollywood wherein a panel of judges has the power to award money to people for a wide variety of needs. Rousso will be featured as a key panelist.

Contestants featured on the show may ask for any amount of money and for any reason, but it’s up to Rousso and the other judges — including Wilhelmina Models President Sean Patterson, Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton, and Candy Spelling — to decide whether or not they receive it. The series is hosted by comedian Bryan Callen.

The four panelists were selected because of their achievements in different industries, as well as their own unique paths to success, which will presumably will influence their decision-making. According to the official press release, the panelists decided to forgo their compensation to create the Bank of Hollywood.

“The idea’s simple: we are giving away tons of money to everyday people to alleviate the stress of today’s climate and have fun,” said Ryan Seacrest, the executive producer of the show, in the press release.
