Episode Summary

EDIT
Semi-Finals Game
AIRED:
With the reigning champion and a celebrity who wasn't initially scheduled to appear, this episode is full of trash-talk. Betting strategies initially stay rather conservative, but it's not long before the celebrities start the mind games. This episode is marked by huge changes in chip totals, with all celebrities at least still in the game by the final hand. Two move on to the final match, but everyone is definitely in it to win it.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Jeff gets two blackjacks in this episode and uses a Joker to make a third.

      • The final hand still featured a chance for everyone to win except for Warren G., really, who was down to only $26,000. He went all in and so did Caroline Rhea, who had $146,500. In the end, Dealer Dave stunned everything with a blackjack, quickly ending the matter and sending Jeff Probst and Kelli Williams to the championship match.

    • QUOTES (18)

    • NOTES (5)

      • Jeff Probst played for Shannon Elizabeth's charity --- Animal Avengers. Caroline Rhea added in the Cherokee Child Advocacy Council along with her previous charity: The Dream Foundation. Warren G. added in City of Hope along with his previous charity: The National Breast Cancer Society.

      • Pop-Up Tips Shown in this episode:

        Warren has only a 23% chance to win by staying with a 14 vs. a dealer 9.
        Caroline has only a 23% chance to win staying with 15 against a dealer's 10.
        Jeff has only a 15% chance to win staying with 15 against a dealer's Ace.

      • A mobile-phone poll in this episode asks viewers to text message their response to the question: "How would you play an Ace-7 against a dealer's 3 card?" The results were Hit - 39%, Stand - 32%, Double Down - 29%. The book says that you should double down.

      • Jeff Probst, as the loser with the largest chip total, subbed in for Shannon Elizabeth, who won her match but couldn't make the semi-final.

      • Although the initial broadcast of this episode apparently revealed who had won in the next episode, the Saturday repeat and possibly others as well were edited to remove this information.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Matt: And in case you're wondering, Warren G. isn't related to our 29th president, Warren G. Harding. You know, they both so gangsta.
        The 29th President of the United States may have shared the name of this modern day rapper, but it might be a strength to say that he was "gangsta." His opponents sometimes criticized him as "pompous," although there is his scandal-ridden administration to consider.
