to filming, writing and editing.

3 words to describe you

Adventure seeker, competitive and over-achiever.

Favorite hobbies

Traveling, scuba diving and food and wine tasting.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? 

Graduating college early and landing my dream job as a reporter.  

What famous person reminds you of yourself?

Cameron Diaz — fun, outgoing, silly and loves to dance.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

Michael Strahan — similar personality, loves sports and hilarious.

What scares you most about traveling? 

Being in a violent situation where I am unsafe, and driving on the other side of the road.

What excites you most about traveling?

Doing things I have never done before, experiencing different cultures and seeing magnificent things with my own eyes.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together:

Patience — Joey loses his patience very quickly. When he loses his patience, he gets really short. I hope he will learn to listen to me and keep his cool.

Pet peeve about your teammate:

He is always watching sports. TV is always on sports, and he won't let me change the channel.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

Paris, because I've never been and I would love to see the Eiffel tower. I think it's romantic. Also, Germany because it looks like a fun party country and Spain because there is so much culture and tradition.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)?

I hope Joey and I will realize if we are meant to be together. We are a great "dating" couple, but is it more than that? Should we get married? I hope we can answer that question as we experience the race together.
