She told The Courier Mail on Thursday she was excited to discover and experience unseen parts of Australia on the show.

‘It’s such a fun challenge and I love competing, doing challenges and, of course, winning. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that money can’t buy,’ Amanda said.

Ashleigh, who boasts an impressive travel history having visited 73 countries, admitted she hasn’t explored her own country as much.

The brunette told the publication she was ‘super excited’ to explore Australia properly.

‘I am always pretending I’m on The Amazing Race when I’ve had to eat something weird or I’m running through an airport tying not to miss a connecting flight – so it will be cool to race for real!’ she said.

She added of her teammate: ‘The best part of travelling with Amanda is that she is the most fun and always down for an adventure.’
