Nary Ebeid 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 Jamie Graetz. Nary is a 32-year-old federal agent from Los Angeles, California.

Here is an interview with Nary Ebeid ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: Enforce the controlled substance laws and bring criminals who grow, manufacture and distribute controlled substances to the criminal and civil justice system of the United States.

How will these skills help you win The Race? In this profession you need to be on your toes and make quick split- and rational decisions under pressure. That is a tough skill to come by, and making quick decisions for the Race is important.

Three words to describe you: Stubborn, loyal and warm-hearted.

Favorite hobbies: Working out at the gym, rollerblading and photo-scrapbooking.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Sandra Bullock in "Miss Congeniality."

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Mike Myers in "Austin Powers," because of the funny voice she uses sometimes.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Completing the Academy, becoming a federal agent and getting my Masters degree in two-and-a-half years, all while working full-time.

What scares you most about traveling? Being kidnapped or eating something that will make me sick and therefore ruin my trip!

What excites you most about traveling? The experience of seeing how other parts of the world look and how different people are and trying different food.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together? We are both pretty good communicators with one another, but sometimes I may have to speak loudly to get it through her hard head.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She's hard-headed and selfish sometimes — and a little high-maintenance. For example, she told her fiancée that she wanted a $20,000 ring!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? South Africa, to see the African Safari.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? The experience of a lifetime and gaining a stronger bond with Jamie.
