Stacy Bowers 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 cousin Kerri Paul. Stacy is a 30-year-old self-employed "basketball" wife from Gulfport, Mississippi.

Here is an interview with Stacy Bowers ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: I spend most of my time working on various projects. My husband and I are currently working on a Youth Basketball Camp to be held this upcoming summer. I also spend a lot of time traveling back and forth between the U.S. and Italy, where my husband plays professional basketball for "Umana Venezia" in Venice. 

How will these skills help you win The Race? I can multitask easily. I have developed a lot of skills and resourcefulness throughout the years.

Three words to describe you: Analytical, witty and tenacious.

Favorite hobbies: Spending time/playing with my children, cooking and gaming (Sudoku, Monopoly, Scrabble, Taboo). I'm also very much into politics. My friends often look to me to explain the latest "possip" (political-gossip) and hot political topics. 

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Jennifer Lopez, because she goes from sweet to heat in 0.2 seconds.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Kerri is a mix between Beyoncé and Tamar Braxton. She is absolutely beautiful, adventurous and intelligent. She's also very talkative. I never know what "craziness" will come out of her mouth!

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?  Other than being a great mommy, I am proud that I was able to complete my MBA with a 4.0 GPA.

What scares you most about traveling? Traveling is not really scary to me, however, the thought of being stuck in the middle of nowhere with no means of communication is a bit scary.

What excites you most about traveling? I am excited to see and experience new cultures.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Kerri has a big mouth and often talks over me. She also always automatically assumes that her opinion is the only one that counts — or that my opinion isn't important.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Not only does Kerri speak often, but she also speaks very loudly sometimes. She just wants to be the only voice heard throughout the planet. She is 100% drama queen. 

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to visit Spain — especially Barcelona, mainly because it's a very beautiful country, rich in culture and history. Plus, I've always wanted to try authentic Spanish food.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to prove to both of my children, but especially my 11-year-old son, that anything is truly possible with hard work and determination. He had speech challenges early on, and would easily get discouraged and very frustrated with his situation. I want him to see me work through challenges with steadfast determination. I hope that in seeing me compete, it will encourage them to dream big and show them that there are no limits to accomplishing one's ambitions. I want them to think to themselves, "If Mommy can compete for the sky, then we can reach the moon!"
