Amazing Race Q&A
Snow skiing, spending time with my family, scrapbooking and traveling
I'm proud that I'm a self-sufficient woman. I make a six figure salary in my twenties and I don't need to be supported by anyone financially.
Lifelong to do list
Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and take over for Kelly Ripa when she's ready to retire
What scares you most about traveling?
Disease! I'm so scared of getting an incurable disease.
What excites you most about traveling?
Seeing new cultures and meeting people that live a life unlike mine
If I could switch places with someone
Kelly Ripa or Giuliana Rancic from E! News
My entire family - from my grandparents to my six siblings - they all inspire me to be a better person. They keep me grounded and they're a team of role models who live humble, respectful and fulfilling lives.
What are you passionate about?
I'm passionate about anything that involves traveling, gemstones and family. Ive been to mines all over the world and I know the chemical makeup of just about every gemstone on the planet! I'm certified from both the Gemological Institute of America and The Diamond Council of America.
What would you do if you won the million dollars?
If we win the million dollars I would send my little sister to college and buy a house in Malibu.
People would be surprised to learn
Most people find my job intriguing. I'm a jewelry home shopping host.
Favorite place you have ever visited
My favorite place in the world is Bali, Indonesia. The island is crammed with history, art, spirituality and enchanting people.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together
It will be a challenge not to laugh our way out of any obstacle. Claire and I both have a wicked sense of humor and every time we face adversity we break out in fits of laughter and jokes. We are here to win and want to have a good time doing it.
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)?
It would be an experience that would bond us together for life. I think everyone out there wants to develop stronger and deeper bonds with their best friend.
Pet peeve about your teammate
My pet peeve about Claire is that she is really bossy and gets easily offended when I don't listen to her advice.
