Jamie Graetz from "The Amazing Race 2012" is one of the contestants on Season 20 of the CBS reality competition series. She is teamed up with her friend Nary Ebeid. Jamie is a 33-year-old federal agent from Los Angeles, California.

Here is an interview with Jamie Graetz ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: To enforce the controlled substances laws of the United States of America. In order to achieve this we target high-level drug traffickers and look to disrupt/dismantle them.

How will these skills help you win The Race? We are aggressive, pay attention to detail, are always ready for a challenge and never give up. Go hard or go home!

Three words to describe you: Alive, loyal and thankful.

Favorite hobbies: Running, baking and working out.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Austin Powers with a touch of Barbie.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Hulk Hogan — Nary is one tough cookie. You don't want to see her get in a fight.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? When I was shot, the bullet shattered my right femur. I was close to losing my leg. I am most proud to be back at work and running again. Both are huge accomplishments for me.

What scares you most about traveling? Being kidnapped. I'd hate for my family and friends to wonder where I am or what happened to me. Or getting thrown in a foreign prison.

What excites you most about traveling? Where do I start? I love meeting new people and trying new food. Experiencing a different culture and sharing stories. It all gets me excited.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together? We both always think we're right. We could definitely work on compromising every now and then. We also bicker quite a bit.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She is so stubborn. Once she's made a decision, it is an act of God to get her to change her mind.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? That's a tough one. I'd like to go to the Greek Isles with my boyfriend because it looks beautiful, and for the great food. I want to go to Ibiza with my girlfriends.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Pushing ourselves to the limit and learning from each other. I'd love to see how we react in a foreign country under pressure. We travel a lot together, but it has never been stressful.
