Best friends Marisa Axelrod and Brooke Jackson are one of the 11 pairs participating in the 13th season of The Amazing Race. These southern beauties are bent on proving to the world that they are more than their pretty blonde selves through the race.
22-year-old Marisa is a broadcast journalism student at the University of Southern Carolina. Ambitious, witty and spontaneous, she thinks her extensive dance training—and the determination she got with it—will help her team on the race. 24-year-old Brooke, on the other hand, is a globe-trotting graphic designer who can’t wait to test her Spanish skills in the competition. She believes that her take-charge attitude will tide them through the finish line.
The pair is out to prove that they can also be athletic and competitive in the race, even if it takes a little flirting to get them through. Above all, though, they hope that the race will make them closer friends than ever before.Exclusive Interview: Marisa and Brooke, from 'The Amazing Race 13'
