Krista DeBono from "The Amazing Race 2015" is one of the contestants in Season 27 of the CBS reality competition series. She is teamed up with her friend and fellow former NFL cheerleader for the NY Jets, Tiffany Chantell Torres. Krista is currently a speech pathologist from Staten Island, New York.

Here is an interview with Krista DeBono:

Describe what you do:

I'm a speech language pathologist for students with special needs, such as autism. I provide language therapy to children's ages 3 to 8. I'm also a professional dancer.

3 words to describe you

Determined, beyond outgoing and witty/sarcastic.

Favorite hobbies

Dancing, working out/fitness and reading/puzzles.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

Making an NFL cheerleading team while getting my master's degree.

What famous person reminds you of yourself?

Leah Remini. Everyone tells me my sarcastic personality and accent is just like hers. It actually was my sorority nickname.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

Brooke Burke — she's glamorous and also a strong woman. Tiff looks just like her too.

What scares you most about traveling? 

Truthfully, nothing. I absolutely love to travel and my dream is to travel the world.

What excites you most about traveling?

I come from NYC, so I am excited to see new cities but most of all learn about different cultures.  

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

We both can be stubborn at times and have strong personalities. We need to learn to take the back seat sometimes and not always think we are the right ones.

Pet peeve about your teammate

She can get snippy sometimes if things don't always go her way.

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

Italy. My dream is to visit Italy to see my roots and culture. I would like to see the area my family came from.

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

We have an extremely close bond and I know that will become even stronger when we face challenges together. This experience will help me learn things about her that I never knew before.
