“They’re both extremely competitive. And they don’t like to lose,” series creator Josh Kimmel told the publication.

Filming is slated to take place during the second half of August, according to the article, “for three days in Los Angeles where Amanda Kimmel lives, and the rest in Barcelona, Spain at a PokerStars’ European Poker Tour event.”

Josh Kimmel noted that he wanted the cameras to showcase how the stars react to winning and losing.

“If they lose and they go up to their hotel room and smash the TV set, that’s interesting to me,” Kimmel said.
