Poker babe - Kelly Hu
Kelly Ann Hu is an American actress and former fashion model who held the Miss Teen USA 1985 and Miss Hawaii USA 1993 titles. When it comes to poker hotties, it doesn’t get any better than Kelly Hu‘s Chinese, Hawaiian, English and Filipino features. She has also starred in such films as X2, Cradle 2 the Grave and The Scorpion King. Hu, a member of CAUSE USA, an organization which encourages Asian Americans to participate in the democratic process, was instrumental in creating the innovative PSA The Least Likely. This clip purports to be a promo for a typical fantasy-adventure movie, only to reveal its message at the end. It aired on MTV and other networks with appeal to young people and Asian Americans. Kelly Hu is an avid fan of poker and a dedicated poker player, and has frequently taken part in World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour competitions (amongst others), most recently taking part in the WPT Celebrity Charity on March 3, 2008. She has taken part in HollywoodPoker.com's "Celebrity Poker Night" (May 30, 2006), and in July 2006 she placed in the top 200 in the World Series of Poker Ladies Tournament, besting nearly a thousand other competitors. Her celebrity teammates included Mimi Rogers, Victoria Pratt, Anne Heche, Mena Suvari, Jean Smart, and Ricki Lake. Kelly currently lives alone in Brentwood, Los Angeles, and she has never been married. Hard to believe, given the good looks and talent of this poker hottie.
