Episode Summary

EDIT
Shannon Elizabeth v. Gary Valentine v. Camryn Manheim v. Dayna Devon
AIRED:
Terribly wild game featuring drunken celebrities, kissing and more. Two of the celebrities are old-hat to the game, but the competition is strong. The celebrities try everything from begging and pleading to basic strategy cards to make decisions. One finds that it helps, while others find themselves digging a deep hole. As the game gets wilder, host Matt can only cheer on the action as all control seems to go out the window.moreless

    • QUOTES (9)

    • NOTES (7)

      • Rob George is credited as Rob M. George.

      • Shannon Elizabeth won against Camryn Manheim in the first ever episode of Celebrity Blackjack.

      • A mobile-phone poll in this episode asks viewers to text message their response to the question: "How would you play a 16 hand if the dealer shows a 6 card?" The results were Stand - 65%, Double Down - 21%, Hit - 14%. The book says that Stand is the best option.

      • Pop-Up Tips Shown in this episode:

        Doubling soft 15 vs. dealer's 5 wins 54% of the time
        If Shannon doubles her blackjack, she'lls have a 62% chance of winning
        Doubling 11 vs. dealer's ace wins only 49% of the time
        There's a 14% chance the dealer will get a 17 on this hand. (Final Hand)

      • Promos for this episode assign the following nicknames to the celebrities: Shannon Elizabeth - "Hot Hand," Gary Valentine - "King of Queens," Camryn Manheim - "Chips," Dayna Devon - "E-Licious"

      • At the final hand, Shannon Elizabeth has a fairly large lead, but not enough to assure any sort of runaway. She bets small, while everyone else bets everything. The results come down to only one dealer number, 17, that will make Camryn a winner. It does not happen and a Shannon Elizabeth is a winner for the second season in a row.

      • The celebrities play for the following charities in this episode: Shannon Elizabeth - Animal Avengers, Gary Valentine - Foundation Fighting Blindness, Camryn Manheim - Venice Family Clinic, Dayna Devon - Entertainment Industry Foundation's National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (N.C.C.R.A.)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Matt: This Richard Dawson act is tiring. Knock it the hell off.
        Game show host Richard Dawson was known for kissing the female contestants when he hosted the show Family Feud.

      • Matt: So with respect to Yogi Berra "It's like a deja vu all over again" for Camryn.
        Yogi Berra, a renowned former baseball player and manager, is famous for Yogi-isms such as this that are supposed to offer wise advice, but don't necessarily make much sense.

      • Matt: Join us next time when Dave talks Gary into some Enron stock option.
        Enron was a company involved in a big corporate scandal that has since become synonymous with bad business practices and bad decisions.
