Here is an interview with Joey Lasalla ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: I own a supplement company and I help people get into better shape and look/feel healthier.

How will these skills help you win The Race? I know how to pay attention to detail.

Three words to describe you: Motivated, determined and trustworthy.

Favorite hobbies: Going to the gym, tanning and clubbing.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Jean-Claude Van Damme.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? The Terminator — Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he has his sunglasses on.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Landing the cover of Men's Fitness Magazine in May 2005.

What scares you most about traveling? Nothing… bring it on!

What excites you most about traveling? Trying out new things like exotic foods and meeting new people.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We both usually want things done our way. In order to make it far we need to work on being a team and listening to each other's ideas.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He might party too much. All he talks about is clubs when we go to the shore to meet girls.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Brazil — because the women are all beautiful and the beaches look amazing. It's definitely my kind of place.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Being able to say "I did this!" I want to travel and compete all over the world and develop a closer bond with my good friend.
