So I’ve been sitting on this interview for a few days because I was one of the lucky ones to get the stomach virus which resulted in about 24 hours of walking back and forth from the couch to the bathroom, except for the times I decided just to fall asleep on the bathroom floor with a roll of toilet paper as a pillow and a towel as a blanket (true story).
At one point during that nightmare it dawned on me that I had this interview I needed to publish, and I couldn’t let people down! I had to pull myself up, drag my ass to the computer and write this up. See what I do for the Junkies?
This interview is with the one and only Vicki from The Amazing Race 17, the tattooed sweetheart who surprised a lot of people and made it into the final 4 despite her teammate giving up on her, finishing last twice, and having frequent asthma attacks whenever she had to hustle. I was one of the people who thought they were going to be out early, but I’m glad I was wrong, as we got to see her true character shine through as a selfless, helpful and kind person.
Btw, because my questions were pretty generic, over the course of the upcoming seasons, I’ll probably be looking to take questions from readers to submit to people, maybe we can get something better than what I came up with!
Also, I blurred out the faces of her friends from pictures. I didn’t want people thinking she’s really friends with aliens with no faces.
Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions, first off, tell us about the Vicki experience. What do you do when you’re not racing around the world?
When I am not racing around the work I’m in deep with my career! I am really passionate about being a hairstylist, making people look & feel beautiful. I get to express myself through my work!! Besides my career I’m always keeping myself very active with either being at the gym, aerobics classes, snowboarding, boxing and riding!!
How did you feel when you were first told you were going to run the race? Do you remember what you were doing?
When I was first told I was on the race I was at work and thought it was a joke lol! I thought somebody was honestly playing a prank on me!! Like punked! Lol
How are things going with Nick?
Things are going great with Nick and I. A lot less stressed being off the race!
Do you think the race impacted your relationship? If so, was it positive or negative?
