Card Sharks Season Premiere Exclusive: Will Evan’s Faith in Humanity Give Him the Advantage?

Published

on


One of my favorite rebooted classics returns to ABC on Sunday, October 18.


Joel McHale hosts Card Sharks, and we have an exclusive clip from the premiere.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 50 years (even the vintage episodes have been available on Buzzr for years), allow me to explain by way of the official show synopsis:


Card Sharks is a suspenseful game where a fortune can be won on the turn of a single playing card! The road to glory and riches begins with two players who face off in a head-to-head elimination game with the goal of one player making it to the life-changing money card round.

In the money card round, the winning player has to make gut-wrenching decisions and risk it all to win it all. Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue wagering for a chance to take home a major cash prize.


Seriously, it’s a lot of fun, and gaining the advantage for the money round is all about your, as Evan’s friend says so eloquently in our exclusive clip, faith in humanity.


Like many other shows of the era that have been rebooted over the years, to gain the advantage, you need to bet on some of humanities most important questions.

Contestant Evan Phillips on Card Sharks


Our clip features Rhea Watson from Las Vegas, Nevada, and Evan Phillips from Monterey, California.


They get a question that fits right into the worlds of our ‘ship loving TV Fanatics — what is the percentage of adults who have ended a relationship on Valentine’s Day?


Ouch! As Evan says, that is, indeed HARSH!

Contestant Rhea Watson on Card Sharks


Rhea and her support team, though, have no compunction about believing the number might be a lot more than Evan’s belief in humanity might support.


It leads to a very funny exchange, and the only way you’re going to find out whose thoughts prevail is to watch the clip.


And the only way to find out who makes a run at the cards that’s worth the weight of their claims is to watch Card Sharks at 10/9c on Sunday, October 19 only on ABC!!

Radhika Apte needs no introduction to Kollywood fans after her appearance as Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in ‘Kabali’ directed by Pa Ranjith.  The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

Radhika is happily married to her British boyfriend Benedict Taylor who is a singer and she shuttles between Mumbai and London to balance her personal and professional life.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
