Recently, I chatted a bit with Amazing Race contestant (still in the game!), Sarah Leshner (C’98, W’01) after my post about her HERE.
…On why and how she tried out for The Amazing Race:
“A friend suggested to me that I apply for the Amazing Race given that I love to travel, am spontaneous, pretty fearless… so my boyfriend and I looked up online how to apply, but NEVER thought we’d be selected! We mailed a video into a PO Box in Los Angeles, and I figured that’s just not the way teams are actually chosen. 2 months later, we got a call that our tape had “caught their eye” and it was a whirlwind after that. 2 months of phone interviews, a second video, and a week-long stay in LA doing interviews and tests secured our spot among the 11 teams :)”
…On what it’s like being recognized:
“Getting recognized has been fun… a girl came up to me in the bar on Saturday and just said “OMG, are you Sarah?” Hilarious :)”
