Stunning Poker Babe Michelle Orpe Lighting Up The Beautiful GameMay 13, 2010 10:33 am
Multi-talented TV presenter and recognised face on the poker scene, Michelle Orpe will be brightening up more than a few faces as she continues hosting the PokerStars presented ‘European Poker Tour’ this summer.
The striking looking blonde from Cochester, England got her first big career break 7 years ago after being spotted by Image Wizard Television in 2003 and being asked to host a Channel 5 sports series called ‘Rem Com Raiders.’
Since then, Michelle has worked for both Sky and Eurosports presenting the European Drag Racing Championships and Stock Car Racing Championships, until Sky offered her the chance to host a daily live poker show called ‘Poker Night Live,’ which she happily accepted.
After being given a crash course on the game under expert supervision, she has gone on to become not only an excellent poker host but also a formidable player at the tables. As Michelle explains:
“Men take one look at me when I sit at the table and their pattern of thought goes something like this: Blonde, young, female, on the television… obviously can’t play, easy target! And this is what I’m quite happy to let them believe, until I walk away with all their chips of course.”
Michelle is currently sponsored by online poker room Purple Lounge, which enters her into prestigious poker tournaments around the world where she has enjoyed much success.
Aside from poker, Michelle Orpe has a real love of games and sports in general, which has seen her trying her hand and enjoying a whole host of exciting sports, such as sky diving, cliff jumping, abseiling and water skiing.
With her bubbly personality, adventurous nature and good looks, Michelle Orpe is sure to continue making a splash with her male admirers as she hosts the ‘Euorpean Poker Tour,’ which airs on Channel 4 and Sky.
