Vegas Hard Rock Cafe teams with ABC 'Winner Take All' reality game show

Variety reports that the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has become the host location of a new ABC reality game show entitled Winner Take All.
The show intends to recruit "individuals with preexisting relationships" to participate in a series of stunts over a couple of days, and then to follow the contestants over a couple of days as they "deal with the repercussions of their wagering." To spice the show up, the producers plan to entice traditional Vegas talent such as Siegfried and Roy or Penn and Teller to make cameo appearances.
The most interesting part of each show promises to be following the "discussion" between the contestants over their prior wagering strategy, although it may seem painfully familiar to anyone who has ever blown a bankroll in Vegas. The stunts could be fun as well. Anyone remember the movie Honeymoon in Vegas with the Flying Elvises?
