Laura Boneham
Age: 49
Hometown: Indianapolis
Current occupation: Registered Nurse

Describe what you do: I work as a registered nurse in a busy hospital in Indianapolis on an Oncology/Hematology floor with medical overflow.

Three words to describe you: Kind, strong, and smart.

Favorite hobbies: I love waterskiing, boating, scuba diving, traveling, camping, gardening, and working out.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?
I am most proud of going back to school in 2015 for another degree and becoming a new registered nurse.

What scares you most about traveling?
Getting lost.

What excites you most about traveling?
Seeing breathtaking scenery and new places I have never been before.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
I have always wanted to visit Australia and dive the Great Barrier Reef. I prefer tropical climates but I'm up for anything!

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race with your partner (other than winning one million bucks)?
I hope to not be the first team out, see places in the world we have never seen before, and strengthen our marriage even more with new exciting experiences and challenges.

Who do you think will be your biggest competition: Racers, Houseguests, or Castaways?
Our biggest competition will most definitely be the Racers. There is a learning curve to running the Race and returnees have the advantage, no question!

Do you think Survivor prepared you for The Amazing Race? Do you think you learned anything on Survivor that will help you on the Race?
Surviving 21 days in the jungle on Survivor empowered the s**t out of me! Survivor taught me to expect the unexpected. I feel like I can conquer any challenge reality TV or life throws my way.

Being lost.

The adventure.

All. I can't think of any place I don't want to go.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race with your partner (other than winning one million bucks)?
A great adventure.

Who do you think will be your biggest competition: Racers, Houseguests, or Castaways?
The Amazing Race-rs will most definitely have the advantage. Returning players always have the advantage over newbies.

Do you think Survivor prepared you for The Amazing Race? Do you think you learned anything on Survivor that will help you on the Race?
After so many times on Survivor, I've done a LOT of challenges. Survivor has taught me to be confident in challenges.

Not too much at all.  In fact, I think stealing shoes is frowned upon in other countries.  Maybe he'll be arrested.

*sigh*

Why? Whyyyyy? 

And I'm not one of those who kneejerk hates on Rupert. I'm just fatigued by him.

I don't have a knee jerk hate, either. It's a long-developed, intense dislike for this famewhore ... in a "I hope he gets mauled by a pack of wild animals" kind of way.

Yay! They are off my screen.

Until the next time they appear on Survivor.

You know it's coming.

I feel kinda bad for Laura. She wasn't allowed to do anything except bite sandals.
