The Amazing Race Teams
Ally and Ashley
Name: Allison “Ally” Mello
Hometown: Los Angeles
Connection to your teammate: LA Kings Ice Crew Girls and friends
Current occupation: LA Kings Ice Crew Girl
Describe what you do: As an LA Kings Ice Crew member we orchestrate all in-game promotions and clean the ice at every TV time out. We also do appearances in the community which help raise money for the Kings Care Foundation.
3 words to describe you: Vivacious, creative and driven.
Favorite hobbies: Playing beach volleyball, running around with my dogs and exploring new areas without a plan.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Graduating from CSULB with honors while working hard to support myself. I went from living in the small community of Turlock, CA to pursuing my childhood dreams in Southern California. I worked hard, stayed focused and I'm very proud of the choices I made.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Kate Hudson – bubbly and blonde with a touch of sassiness.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Ashley is a mixture of Jenna Marbles (same look and witty personality) and Victoria Beckham. Ashley has more clothes and heels than any other girl I know. She’s a bit of a fashionista!
What scares you most about traveling? Getting sick.
What excites you most about traveling? The opportunity to submerge myself into lifestyles of other cultures! Learning about other cultures has always been a fascination of mine.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We work really well together so I can’t think of anything.
Pet peeve about your teammate: Ashley takes up too much space when getting ready at the Staples Center. She likes to spread all of her stuff out on the counter. Pretty sure she has at least three of my make-up brushes.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Paris, because I have always dreamed of standing beside the Eiffel Tower! I have an Eiffel Tower necklace that I love to wear, and I have several Paris themed pieces in my home. Would be a dream come true!
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to come back not only having a stronger relationship with Ashley, but to have some ridiculous stories we can laugh about when we’re old and wrinkly.
