Kaylani Pallotta and Lisa Tilley are a team of Former Vegas Showgirls on The Amazing Race 19.

They made a splash in the first leg when Kaylani dropped her passport while asking for directions to the airport, and fans, talking over Twitter, got it back to her at LAX. Though they did not last long anyway, as Lisa struggled with the Buddhist Statues Roadblock in the third leg, and when she did complete it, they had do go back and pay their cab driver before checking into the Pit Stop. This dropped them to last and resulted in their elimination.

Kaylani

Age: 33
Hometown: Las Vegas
Connection to your teammate: Friend
Current occupation: Cocktail waitress
Describe what you do: I'm a VIP cocktail waitress and pilates instructor.
How will these skills help you win The Race? I am used to working under pressure. I am also a technically trained dancer, so I am very agile and flexible. I am used to pushing myself beyond my limits. I am not a quitter.
Three words to describe you: Fearless, competitive and outgoing.
Favorite hobbies: Spending time with my daughter, surfing, dancing and scrapbooking.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Demi Moore
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Kim Kardashian
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? My daughter, Seneca. She is just simply amazing.
What scares you most about traveling? Right now, the world is hostile in so many places, and that can be scary going into a territory that your country has no jurisdiction over to help should something happen.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing other cultures and seeing the world. I love to travel!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Being open to the other person's point of view when we have our mind set on what we want to do.
Pet peeve about your teammate: Sometimes when you talk to her and she doesn't agree, Lisa will stare at you with this blank stare and start shaking her head. And, if you are talking, you can be certain that Lisa will cut you off and she will twist anything to make herself right. Should you disagree with her she throws a fit.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I want to go to Italy. Specifically, a little town called Ponta Corva because that is where my father's side of the family is originally from.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I want to have an amazing experience, travel the world, have new adventures, explore new cultures and build a stronger bond of friendship with Lisa. It's a once in a lifetime time chance, and I want to take it all in. I really hope to be able to look back at the experience and be able to say to myself and my daughter, "You can do anything!"
