fail! Oy Vey!

Most memorable moment from your first Race: I loved every part of Bora Bora! My favorite memory was paddling to Phil after FINALLY finding our clue in the sand castles. It was such a rush knowing that we were in first place! I couldn't believe it!

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Definitely Bora Bora!

Why do you want to run the Race again? Well, we still have an Express Pass to use ... Kidding! There is nothing that even comes close to "The Amazing Race." No matter what place you finish in, you have the opportunity to be a part of something so incredible. We went to amazing countries, met new people and had the chance to compete together for $1 million! It really was priceless.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? We are older, hopefully wiser and we are engaged!

What are you passionate about? Running, travel, adventure!

People would be surprised to learn: We are engaged. We are planning our wedding in October and could really use that million!

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Language barriers, taxi drivers, me getting tunnel vision and dancing/singing challenges.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He talks to me in computer code language.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Anywhere in Africa. We didn't get a chance to go last season and it looked incredible.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? We want to see as many countries as possible. We were eliminated fairly early last time and we missed out on some cool places. Other than that, we just want to enjoy the adventure together and know that we did our best no matter what place we finish in.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We plan to be more cautious and less competitive. That may sound like a weird plan for a race, but I felt like last time we were always thinking ahead and strategizing for the next challenge. We don't care about getting first on any leg except for the last!

Here is an interview with Jessica Hoel:

Describe what you do: I am an account manager for Cargill's health and nutrition business. I represent a variety of specialty sweeteners and functional ingredients.



3 words to describe you: Motivated, competitive and friendly.

Favorite hobbies: Running, surfing and traveling.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Finishing the Boston Marathon (twice).

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Jessica Biel. She's super athletic, but seems girly and sweet.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Macklemore.

What scares you most about traveling? Not much. I love it! Maybe missing a flight, but I usually get lucky.

What excites you most about traveling? I absolutely love to travel! I lived in Mexico and Spain to really learn and understand other cultures. I love trying new food, seeing new sights and meeting different people and learning new languages.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: John tells a lot of stories (multiple times) and speaks very slowly. I sometimes just talk over him or make him get to the point!

Pet peeve about your teammate: He's always hungry!! He will eat all of the cereal in one sitting so I have to hide it. If he's hungry, it's not good!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Thailand, because of the people! It's called the land of smiles. Also, the local food, the beaches! I've heard too many great things!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I can't wait to see the world with my best friend!
