Biography
Christie Volkmer (37); Jodi Wincheski (40)
Hometown: Choctaw, Okla./ Houston, Texas
Occupation: Flight Attendants
Relationship: Flight Attendants


These two savvy flight attendants met while working on a Southwest Airlines flight six years ago where they made an instant connection. Both admit to being extremely competitive and determined to win.

Christie and Jodi agree they have different personalities, but are confident these differences will be used as a strength on the Race. Christie claims that she is more analytical while Jodi is the reactive one. Her biggest pet peeve about Jodi is that she reacts too fast, while Jodi’s pet peeve with Christie is that she asks too many questions.

Christie, who recently married, describes herself as realistic, opportunistic and street-smart. Her primary motivation for running the Race is to challenge herself and to have an experience of a lifetime before she settles down and starts a family.

Jodi is using this experience to test what she is made of. As a divorced, single mother, she lives for her daughter and wants to prove to her that you can accomplish any goal you set your mind to. She describes herself as strong-willed, determined and independent. Jodi enjoys beach volleyball, snow skiing and traveling.

During their 25 years of combined traveling experience, Christie and Jodi have become well-versed in all the ins-and-outs of the travel industry and they’re eager to put that valuable knowledge to good use

I don't really like this team for now, but my feelings for them might change throughout the entire course of the race though. They are a neutral team for now, not a pre-season favourite.

And TAR's determined to get an all-female team to win.

A while back, I pegged Kelly and Christy as the next Dustin and Kandice. These girls look like they could be the next Kelly and Christy. This is not a good thing. I think these girls will make error after error, stick around for a while, and eventually lose out after one of their strongest legs. They are experienced in air travel though, so that could afford them some Steve and Dave type advantages.

PREDICTION: 6th

It is specially nice to finally get to hear this team! We have known about them the longest of any of the teams, I think, and I feel like they are "friends" already! They look as though they have a great team rapport, and all that travel experience should definitely help them along the way. Can't wait to see more! :hearts:

I agree with Peach. I think their airport experiences will help when they have to travel by air. They speak the airport language, but with fewer flights this season, can they actually finish high in the pack?

idk, I sense they'll have really bad luck and be the first out
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I don't know why, but I think they will outlast the doublemints and make the F3. They won't win though.

Watch me be entirely wrong!

Prediction: 3rd place finish

They should be interesting to see in the airports. I'll keep my eye on them, but I'm not really sure how I feel about them yet.

Yeah, they're not getting too far.  Fifth or sixth team eliminated, at best.  Third or fourth team eliminated, at worst.
