    • (after Kelli makes her bet) Jeff: Jason's gonna stick with her because he's got to, so they're both gonna bet fifteen grand thereabouts. He'll bet eleven-five or something odd... Lance: Or you could bet, you know, conservative, hoping they'd lose, and just... Jeff: And I'd pick up what, ten grand? Jason: Yeah, I think you should be taking advice from Lance. (laughter from the audience) Matt: Yeah, next, Lance'll hold a seminar on keeping a band together.

    • Dave: This is the pinnacle of celebrity casino programming.

    • Matt: Look at that. She wanted a 9, needed a 9, got a 9. Kelli has been smoking all game.

    • Matt: Oh, come on, Probst. You make people eat deer testicles, but you can't stomach a couple of fours.

    • Dave: Gotta do the dance. The 5-Card Charlie Dance. There ya' go.

    • Jeff Probst makes it the championship despite not having won his initial match. He substituted in the semi-finals for Shannon Elizabeth, who couldn't make it.

    • A mobile-phone poll in this episode asks viewers to text message their response to the question: "How would you play an Ace-6 against a dealer's 3 card?" The results were Hit - 39%, Stand - 17%, Double Down - 44%. The book says that you should double down.

    • There were no pop-up tips shown in this episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • Jason Alexander is the winner of the second season of Celebrity Blackjack, taking home an additional $200,000 for his charity. On the final hand, he had $286,000 and put out $156,000, while Jeff Probst and Kelli Williams put out very small bets, with Lance Bass out of the game. Jason won the hand and therefore won the match.

    • Jeff Probst bet $50,000 several times towards the final hand and won.

    • Jason split 10s on Hand 9 and got 20 and 21, winning the hand. Later, he split and got two 21s, winning once again.
