Abbie Ginsberg from "The Amazing Race 2012" is one of the contestants on Season 21 of the CBS reality competition series. She is teamed up with her boyfriend and fellow divorcee, Ryan Danz. Abbie is a 31-year-old dance instructor and choreographer from Encinitas, California.

Here is an interview with Abbie Ginsberg ("Amazing Race"):

Describe what you do:

I technically train competitive students which includes tap, jazz, turning/jumping and condition classes. I also choreograph dance routines and design costumes/props for competitive dance groups and soloists on a regional/national level.

Favorite hobbies:

Dance, design and exercise.

3 words to describe you:

Creative, athletic and thoughtful.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

I am most proud of the training and growth that I have provided for the past eight years at my dance studio as well as the accomplishments that I have helped my students to achieve. It is so rewarding to see students achieve their goals and grow as dancers and human beings.

What famous person reminds you of yourself?


What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

Hugh Jackman for his stellar good looks (not for the song and dance talent, though.)

What scares you most about traveling?

Getting lost and not having the ability to communicate.

What excites you most about traveling?

I hate how generic this is, but it is true … Exploring new places that I have never been to before.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together:

I would have to say it's a tie between learning to communicate and not piss each other off at the same time. We can be juvenile and sarcastic with one another. The other would be our battle for control/power between over each other. We are both Type "A" and can be bull-headed.

Pet peeve about your teammate:

He's addicted to his phone and can't disconnect easily. Also, his impulsivity can cause problems.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

I would love to visit Paris, France, and go back to the 1920s. Can we make that happen? Last time I went I was 21 and broke. I could barely afford a baguette. I'm hoping this time will be a step up from that. 

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?

I'm hoping to gain some clarity on what I mean to Ryan. I feel lately that our relationship has become a rollercoaster. The highs are high but the lows are low. I am trying to be patient, but I know what I want and right now he can't give that to me.
