In fairness, the first look at the deck shows the four of spades on
the bottom.

He does not seem to be starting his on-camera shuffles with a "new"
deck in standard order.

But if the producers are worth their salt, that deck hasn't seen many
shuffles before it got on camera.

The odds would seem to be far greater than 1 in (52!) that no other
deck of cards has ever been in that order before.
