vanessa-rousso-coverVanessa Rousso, who was the center of attention in the poker industry earlier this year when she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, is now joining ranks with Indy Car star, Danica Patrick as the newest spokes model for domain name registrar,  Rousso is now filming commercials for GoDaddy with Patrick and the first GoDaddy girl, WWE wrestler, Candice Michelle in Las Vegas.  Viewers can catch the commercial when it airs during the upcoming NBC National Heads up Poker Championship, the 2009 National Football League season as well as a possible airing during the Super Bowl.

“Vanessa is smart, she’s aggressive and she’s hot,” said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “She has an economics degree from Duke. She’s working on a law degree at the University of Miami. And, like Go Daddy Girl Danica Patrick, she’s competing successfully in what has been a man’s sport. She is definitely Go Daddy material.”

Rousso’s biggest cash to date was at the 2006 World Poker Tour World Championship where she finished in 7th place for $263,625.  Her career live earnings are a total of $875,746.  Also during 2006 she won $285,450 when she won the $5,000 buy in no limit hold’em tournament at the Borgata Open.  She earned a sponsorship from online poker giant, Poker Stars thanks to her success at the poker tables.  Rousso’s appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue came via an advertisement for Poker Stars play for free site,

“Poker is my passion, but that actually started with my interest in economics,” said Rousso. “I know a strong company when I see one and Go Daddy is absolutely dominant. Go Daddy is world leader in so many Internet categories, plus it has a reputation for being fun, edgy and aggressive. It’s just my style.”
