Christie & AstonFeisty Friends (NZ)These bold and bubbly friends have reunited to take on the world. Will their high energy levels help or hinder their chances in this race?
Aston (32) and Christie (35) met while living in New York in 2006. Both are huge fans of The Amazing Race.
Aston, who is currently researching parapsychology and consciousness, is a single mum to her three-year-old son, Seth. She says she is a “mystery school initiate” and spends a lot of time in meditation.
Christie does a whole range of things, including writing, comedy and life modelling, and considers herself an entrepreneur.
The two have a great friendship, though it's been years since the girls have spent so much time together and it may take some adjusting.
“We are two big personalities with quite different perspectives on the world – we could quite easily clash and we're going to try our very hardest not to,” Aston says.
Christie adds: “it's going to be managing that more than it is being able to avoid it entirely."
Both have psychology degrees and performing arts qualifications – and lay claim to a constant intellectual curiosity.
Aston says, “I‟m addicted to thinking”, and Christie agrees, “if something interests me, I can't bear not to know everything about it.”
When asked how they‟re going to win the race, Christie says: “we're going to kick arse and chew bubble gum!”Relationship
