It is a pleasure to welcome speech language pathologist Krista DeBono to The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast. 

For four years, Krista DeBono danced on the New York Jets Flight Crew in the National Football League. During her time with the New York Jets Flight Crew, she met Tiffany Torres. The two became friends, and eventually, the duo decided to challenge themselves. 

The duo decided to audition for CBS Reality TV competition show: The Amazing Race. 

The show’s producers invited them to compete on the show’s twenty-seventh season. Known as the Cheerleaders, Krista and Tiffany raised around the world against ten additional teams. They competed on 11 different legs that started in the United States, but sadly ended in Macau when they were eliminated one episode from the finale. During the race, Krista DeBono completed six different roadblocks.

After the race, Krista and Tiffany appeared on The Amazing Race edition of a primetime episode of The Price is Right. She also appeared as a Pit Stop greeter for the sixth edition of HaMertoz LaMillion (the Israeli version of The Amazing Race). However, she did not stop competing on reality television with The Amazing Race. Krista DeBono competed on the second season of Sequester.

Sequester is the brainchild of former Big Brother houseguest Audrey Middleton. The show is a strategic game that brings 20 strangers from across the country for a week-long battle for a cash prize. However, unlike Survivor or Big Brother, every round of Sequester continually changes due to the elimination vote. Sadly, Krista was eliminated twice in the show’s fifth episode: “Bulletproof.” During Sequester’s third season, Krista returned to the show when she hosted an elimination round. 

In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast, Krista DeBono talked about her time with the New York Jets Flight Crew and revealed her favorite memories from The Amazing Race. Krista also told if she wanted to compete on other ViacomCBS shows such as Big Brother and The Challenge.
