Annie Duke
Cardroom or boardroom, it’s all the same to Annie Duke.

Duke battled out challenge after challenge, raising money for her charity.

In the end it was Joan Rivers who took up the last challenge and won 3 out of the 5 tasks to take the title of The Celebrity Apprentice. They both outlasted 14 other celebrities to make the finale

Not to feel too hard done by, as Duke still managed to raise the most money for her charity Refugee’s International. She, in fact, raised over 3 times as much as Rivers did in the final challenge. Although this was only one task which was being tested in the final challenge.

Since her success on the reality show, Duke has now become a familiar name with many non-poker fans world-wide.

After a up and down life of a professional poker player, Duke looks to have hit her straps recently.

Annie Duke has 4 kids Maud (1995), Leo (1998), Lucy (2000), and Nell (2002) who have all supported their mother through the show.

Look out for Duke in next adventure, it may not be (again) on the poker table, as she now is a true hollywood star!
