Pet peeve about your teammate: She forgets to eat. FYI – if you ever go to her house, bring your own snacks!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bali, Indonesia. I've heard the beaches are breathtaking and you can wear a sarong every day! That's my kind of living.

She is a sweet lady and makes people laugh without being hurtful; she has such a positive outlook on life and doesn’t judge. I don't really admire a lot of celebs but she just makes me happy.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Jennifer Aniston – everyone wants to be Nicky's friend! She’s funny and is a natural beauty. I am so lucky to get to spend this much time with her!
What scares you most about traveling? Being away from my son and husband is going to be extremely difficult for me.
What excites you most about traveling? Being in crazy situations! I get bored easily, and I’m obsessed with adventure. I also really, really love interacting with people. It's so fun trying to brighten people's day with laughing, or making someone feel good. Whether that be through a hug, conversation or just being ridiculous, i can’t wait to meet people from all over the world and see who is out there! So pumped for this crazy adventure.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I know this might come as a shocker to people, but it's quite possible we might have issues with physical tasks.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She is a tanorexic and I hate how she smells like oatmeal after she spray tans!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? India or Thailand – Such amazing people and cultures! Also, there is a lot of need there. I want to see firsthand how I can help.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Growing in my friendship with my sweet bunny, Nicky, maintaining a positive attitude during the race and walking away having it been one of the best experiences of my life!

Well, there is a Kim, and there is a Getz....but they are not one person. :lol:

And I like this team. They both seem like strong feisty women who will be great fun to watch. They are both extraordinarily involved with their communities, and with charitable and fund raising events. Less like Amanda I can't imagine.

I like this team. Even though they qualify as semi-celebrities, it doesn't seem like they want to run the Race just to gain the attention. I think they will be a lot like Mona & Beth, only less negative and more optimistic.

My eyes just got blinded by their looks (sorry I'm superficial). SUCH A GREAT TEAM TO LOOK AT. #MICHAELWOULDAGREE

They remind me of a mix between Jaime/Cara and Kelly/Christy... which I didn't really like. But also Caroline and Jennifer, which I adore!

Can't wait to see how they perform on this race! Hopefully they kick-ass! <3

Off-topic, but just have to say, too bad for Kim's husband, whose team just got eliminated from the playoffs.

And it looks like they won't get the 2nd EP.

Wow, I haven't gotten a sense of whining from them at all!! Just a HUGE amount of love and support for each other through some VERY tough race moments!! I like them!! :hearts:

I like them too. Great team support for each other and they are obviously not as physically strong as the other teams but who says the race should only consist of strong alpha type teams? :res:

I like them too. In the end, I think they could be going on by beating one team each leg. I don't think they may win any leg, but their supportive attitude may bring them further if they are able to do enough to not be last.
