Well folks, we have some big news to share with you all today … one of our very own residents is about to appear on CBS’s The Amazing Race. How exciting is that??!!
Sara Fowler was chosen to be one of 22 people to participate in the Emmy award-winning reality show. Sara moved to St. John three years ago from Baltimore where she was a registered pediatric nurse. Like many people, she chose St. John after vacationing here several times. (It can happen to you too, folks!) Sara now works as a real estate agent with Sotheby’s.
For those of you unfamiliar with The Amazing Race, it’s a television show in which teams of two compete against each other while traveling the world for roughly 25 days. At each location, the teams complete a series of challenges and only after all tasks are completed, they learn where their next destination will be. The top team wins $1 million.
This season has a twist, however, according to CBS.com. For the first time ever, participants are paired up with strangers based on first impressions. Scary, yet cool.
Check out this quick bio that CBS posted online Wednesday morning:
This isn’t the first time that a St. John resident appeared on a reality show. Jason Siska, captain and owner of Island Roots Charters, appeared on Survivor back in 2008. Click here to read a little more about that.
