I think we are getting confused here
Jodi is 40ish (Blond) and the other set of girls are in their in their 20's (brown hair, the other had lighter hair, but not blond)
Maybe just maybe this Amanda is partnered with an unknown male?
Female Female Friends:
Jodi Wincheski from Houston, TX probably paired with "Chrissy" and are SouthWest Airline flight attendants.
**She was sitting right next to one of the contestants, my friend said she was a Kelly Ripa lookalike. This contestant had another friend sitting up a few rows, who she kept referring to as Chrissy.
**The lady also told the flight attendant that she and her friend Chrissy are Southwest Airlines flight attendants back home.
***She said she also had noticed one other team of two girls with backpacks and camera crews, which I suspect *may* have been the pair I (romaniafan) saw stalled outside baggage claim, but not sure.
****My friend said the racer sitting next to her on the plane had mentioned that others "from our group" had been on an earlier flight that day. And as I may have already mentioned, she was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her daughter that said "I love you wherever I go".
Female Female team
**I would guess that they were mid- to late- twenties, but it was getting dark so I could be totally off. The one in the pink had brown hair, the other had lighter hair, but not blond.
*** two girls, looked to be in their 20s
Air China flight from Beijiing to Tokyo:
