Hometown: Chicago, Ill. but residing in Louisville, Ky.
Connection to your Teammate: Sister
Current Occupation: Assistant Volleyball Coach at the University of Louisville
Previous Season/Result: Season 14/4th place

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: I didn't communicate some of my ideas with certainty in the previous race and I didn't communicate enough with the other Racers.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Knowing that the entire race brought a clearer understanding of who my sister is and her mood. Also, visiting Thailand and the Phuket Zoo was very memorable.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: It's a toss up between Thailand and India. The people seemed so free and happy with what they had.

Why do you want to run the Race again? I want redemption, I want to win and I want to see more areas of the world I wouldn't get to see otherwise.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I've slowed down and instead of just doing and thinking later, I think more strategically.

What are you passionate about? I'm passionate about motivating and pushing people to accomplish things they think they can't. That's why I love coaching.

People would be surprised to learn: My guilty pleasure is all the Housewives shows on Bravo!

One location that you hope to go on this adventure: I would love to visit Brazil because I've never been there.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: I think we've gotten over our communication issues and I now know what bothers her. But, I believe we'll still battle with certain issues and her mood swings.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Her nervous giggle and mood swings.

What would you do if you won the million dollars? I'd go back to school for fashion design and open my own business.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We will communicate more with other contestants and not be so isolated.

--- Quote ---Kisha and Jen: LaKisha Hoffman, 30, and Jennifer Hoffman, 26, missed making the final three in season 14 by mere minutes all due to a bathroom break during a sprint. "There are certain things that you canít prepare for," says Jen, "but you can do things when it comes to packing, [and] we recently decided we needed to take swimming lessons because we know it will come in handy!"
