Here is an interview with Shelley Porter:

Describe what you do: I get paid to travel around the world and look pretty while doing it. In an emergency I'm also responsible for saving you.

3 words to describe you: Outgoing (usually the life of the party), confident (I know I can do anything I set my mind to) and persuasive (I can get you to do it my way).

Favorite hobbies: I love reading trashy historical novels, taking long drives to nowhere with my husband and family game nights either at home or at a local bowling alley.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I'm extremely proud of raising children that 1) don't receive therapy and 2) still actively seek out my company.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Wanda Sykes. She has no filter and says what she thinks.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Angelica Pickles. Drama queen with a lot of attitude.

What scares you most about traveling? Even prior to becoming a flight attendant our family traveled frequently. Nothing scares me about traveling. I LOVE IT!

What excites you most about traveling? New sights, sounds, people, food and the adventure of learning your way around some place new.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Hopefully communicate better.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She likes to take pictures of her poop and text them to us (family).

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would like to visit just about every country in the world because it helps you appreciate our differences culturally and makes you a more well-rounded and empathetic person.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Experience new and difficult challenges that will leave us with lasting memories.
