Describe what you do: During the week, I work as an Advertising Creative Director in New York City. On the weekends, I commute to my goat farm in Sharon Springs, NY.

3 words to describe you: Funny, self-deprecating and generous.

Favorite hobbies: Cooking, gardening and traveling.

What scares you most about traveling? Falling ill during The Race.

What excites you most about traveling? Partaking in new cuisines.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are quick to argue and both of us think we are the smartest people in the room.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Brent never admits when he is wrong.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? There are two: Italy, because I can’t believe I have never been, and Russia because of the history and culture.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? If we win, we could finally be together under the same roof every night for the first time in three years. Being apart during the workweek has been a struggle and gone on far too long.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard watching TAR as I did last night watching Brent trying to dive into that pool. I know the poor guy was having a hard time but I found it hilarious. My boyfriend asked me if I was high.

Me too Jersey! Talk about your face plant/belly buster! And that swim coach had me rolling too...she wasn't cutting any slack, lol! I think it was when these two walked in (or maybe the rockers) she was like this is going to be bad or something like that.

It was when James & Abba walked in. I believe the full quote was "I'm already afraid".

They rocked that time zone challenge and the cocktail party was their total element.

I was kind of glad to see them make it thru the penalty.

That short one is a horse's arse....so snippy and IMO disrespectful to the other one. I don't like him at all.

I'm liking them more and more. They are fighters and I'm glad they are still in the race.

I was pleasantly surprised they won.

Personally this was the most satifying win of any of the teams left.

I was not really rooting for any particular team (just did not want the Twinnies to win).

I was disappointed that they won but they did and fairly so; that is that. I liked them pretty much but not for the win. I came to like the chips and that other couple much more and the twins were so much fun to me. I was sad to see them fall by the wayside. I am curious to see what happens to the goat farmers as a couple after winning the money. I liked this AR. Loved the locales.

I was disappointed these two won. I was glad they beat out the twins, but I wanted the Chippendales to win. I still think the short one was a total beeotch and I don't see what kept the other one from knocking him out.
