Great job! :cheer:
How tall is Francesca?
She looks short compared to Jessie but tall when it comes to the bodybuilding pics.

Was totally not expecting her to be a bodybuilder. Though she was a dancer...

She's 5'2".

I am loving the all the females of the season. Really amazing jobs & backgrounds :colors . Last one was a surprise, didn't expect her to be a bodybuilder. I think she has Italian roots by sound of her name.

Interesting article from Hawaii when Tony was in Afghanistan. Interesting because it is all from the spouse at home point of view, no mention of her own Army career.

She's one of the older ones this season, then. Graduating from high school in 1996 would make her around 38.

So the race will be in two weeks, as when the official cast to be released in public?
