Tiffany and her fellow female pro poker player, Maria Ho, made up the only female team in all the CBS The Amazing Race seasons. They competed in the Emmy Award-winning 15th season. Tiffany and Maria have been friends for years, and From Vegas to Monte Carlo, both have competed at the toughest poker tables across the world and hold their playing for high stakes in a male-dominated world of poker.
