is an interview with Natalie Anderson:

Personal Claim to Fame: Being on "The Amazing Race" twice! Getting kicked off first on All-Stars!

Inspiration in Life: My mother. She is the strongest and the bravest woman I know. She has always encouraged me to be myself and go after anything I want. She has supported me in all my crazy adventures and has taught me how to be a strong and fearless woman!

Hobbies: Crossfit, surfing and being a bad ass.

Pet Peeves: Girls who can't do anything for themselves, lazy people and dumb people.

3 Words to Describe You: Crazy, strong and confident.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Razor; being super hairy in a bikini is not cute. 2) iPhone; so I can tweet and get on Instagram. 3) Barbells; so I can squat.

Contestant You Are Most Like: Tony but hopefully not as insane.

Reason for Being on the Show: The million dollars!! Also, winning "Survivor" makes you a certified badass!

Why You Think You'll Survive: I am physically, mentally and emotionally strong. I am very strong willed and do not give up! I work well with people and feel like I would be a good tribe mate. I know I will pull my weight with the camp chores and not be a burden to my tribe. Physically, I will be able to hang with the guys and be an asset in the team challenges. Also, I love the ocean and if I had to choose one place to spend the rest of my life, it would be the beach. I'm a true island girl!

What Does It Mean to You to Play "Survivor" with Your Loved One? Getting to be on Survivor with Nadiya means so much to me. No matter what we are doing, Nadiya and I have so much fun; whether we are working together or competing against each other! Doing something this intense and getting to share it with my twinnie is something I will never forget.

The Amazing Race 24

Here is an interview with Natalie Anderson:

Describe what you do: I am in school to become an athletic trainer and CrossFit.

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not double checking the pit stop location in France which caused our elimination.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Coming in first place the second leg and winning the Express Pass.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Bangladesh, because Nadiya and I raced really well and kicked butt those two legs.

Why do you want to run the Race again? To win and have a fun time!

How have you changed since the last time you competed? Not much has changed.

What are you passionate about? Travel, CrossFit and family.

People would be surprised to learn: We are still very close to most of the racers from season 21, especially Trey, Lexi and Jaymes.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Staying calm and not getting too excited/crazy.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She screams a lot and never listens to me.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would like to visit Hawaii because I love the beach and ocean. It would be awesome to compete in some water/beach challenge and who wouldn't want to race in a warm, hot, sunny climate.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Having a great time with my twin sister, see some cool new countries and meet more awesome people.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We raced well the first season so I don't think we should change much but we want to remain focused and calm. When it comes to challenges and physical tasks, we have no issues. We need to focus on making smart racing decisions and working well as a team.

The Amazing Race 21

Here is an interview with Natalie Anderson:

Describe what you do: I am studying to be a physical therapist and in the process of creating a bikini/swimwear line with my twinny!

3 words to describe you: Crazy, tomboy and spontaneous.

Favorite hobbies: Jet setting, surfing and CrossFit.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Fully recovering from two knee surgeries after tearing my ACL, MCL and menisci playing rugby.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Michelle Rodriquez.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Khloe Kardashian. Nadiya loves to cook and is the caretaker between us. She is always feeding or taking care of somebody.

What scares you most about traveling? Getting kidnapped or going missing.

What excites you most about traveling? Everything excites me about traveling. Exploring a new country and its culture is one of the most exhilarating experiences.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We both have explosive personalities and no boundaries with one another which could work against us. Fighting with each other is super destructive and can often make us forget about what is important and could be a huge distraction.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Nadiya can be lazy and way too laid back at times. Also she never listens to me, even when she knows I'm right.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Hawaii is my dream destination to visit. I have been in love with the ocean since I was little. Surf, sun and sand is all I need!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? To prove to myself that Nadiya and I can work together and complete every challenge on The Race. To be the most dominant team despite the fact that we are an all-girl team. Also, to get even closer with my best friend and twinny!
