2 GRAND FINAL SHOWDOWNS
After the four Celebrity Challenges, we’ll be wrapping things up in November with two Grand Finals—one for the celebs; one for the Global Poker finalists.
Four Global Poker finalists from each Celebrity Challenge Final will get the opportunity to participate in our Global Poker Celebrity Challenge Grand Final on 12 November. They will compete for a chance to win a rather special Ferrari Race Day experience—an all-expenses paid trip to a Ferrari Race Day experience of their choice in North America.
Our four celebs will be dealt a slightly different hand—they’ll get to battle it out against each other in the Celebrity Challenge Grand Final on 13 November. Only one celebrity can claim the top spot, but the top three winners will donate $90,000 between them to charities of their choice. Who will come out on top?
TWO CELEBRITIES DOWN, TWO MORE TO GO
Keep your eyes peeled for our remaining Celebrity Challenges. There are four in total, and we’ve got a hell of a line-up for you, featuring pro-ballers Paul George and Karl-Anthony Towns, megastar athlete Michael Phelps, and beats maestro, DJ Khaled.
