Vanessa graced the pages of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Go Daddy founder Bob Parsons issued the following statement:
“Vanessa is smart, she’s aggressive, and she’s hot. 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 says of the new endorsement:
“Poker is my passion, but that actually started with my interest in economics. I know a strong company when I see one and Go Daddy is absolutely dominant. Go Daddy is a world leader in so many internet categories, plus it has a reputation for being fun, edgy, and aggressive. It’s just my style.”
The National Heads-Up Poker Championship is sponsored by Go Daddy.
If you think Rousso is just a cute little face, think again … as you loose your purse at the table. She’s a a law student-turned-poker professional with $1 million in earnings since her start in 2006. Vanessa Rousso speaks three languages and graduated from Duke in 2 1/2 years.
