Vanessa Rousso Signs with EQ Labs

by Poker Team

If you were to conduct a poll asking poker fans who the best looking female poker player is, and the name Vanessa Rousso would likely make the top 5 every single time. Adding to her well above average looks is a strong poker game to match, after all, she is a Team PokerStars sponsored pro and PokerStars reserves that distinction to only the best of the best as poker is not some kind of beauty pageant.

Currently, Rousso is making some serious noise at this year’s World Series of Poker. Though she has not captured a bracelet, she has gone far and cashed in several events and has played consistently throughout this year’s series. Over the weekend, Rousso made headlines away from the felt as she was introduced as the latest celebrity face of EQ Labs, the makers of EQ Energy Drinks. This is yet another endorsement deal for the highly marketable Rousso who is well-known for her racy ads.

After the deal was announced, Rousso said when asked for comment,

“I’m so happy to be part of the EQ Energy team! I have been working with the CEO for a few weeks and really believe in the product and the company. The energy tablets are awesome. They taste great, are super portable, and of course, give me a real energy boost. As a professional poker player, my energy levels and mental acuity are of the utmost importance. If I lose my focus for just one second, it could cost me a tournament and millions of dollars. EQ keeps me alert and focused when my opponents are ready for bed.”

She also revealed that she has been using the EQ product throughout the series thus far.

She is looking forward to an expanded role as a spokesperson. She explained,

“My deal with EQ is going to be across the board. I will do promotional events, commercials, and business development with my existing businesses and business relationships. I’ve always been an entrepreneur and can’t wait to start being involved in EQ marketing and promotion.”

The EQ Executive team is quite excited to have her on board. In a press statement, Maurice Owens, Chief Executive Officer of EQ Labs said,

“We are extremely happy to be able to announce that not only does Vanessa enjoy our product, but she also used the product at the world’s premier annual poker event. This deal with Vanessa allows us to reach a national television audience.”

By increasing her face time in living rooms across the country, it is believed that Rousso’s newfound celebrity status will continue on its current upswing.
