Names: Jill / Thomas
Connection: Girlfriend / Boyfriend
Ages: 27 / 30
Her lifelong list to do is have an “Eat, Pray, Love” experience. Fucking snooooooze. However, she did say she gets annoyed quick, and I don’t think it’s an accident her name and bio are first on The Amazing Race’s website. Despite their extremely boring interview and potential, they could surprise us with some craziness.
