The Amazing Race Wiki

Lisa Thomson and Michelle Thomson are a team of Realtor Sisters on The Amazing Race 25.

After ending up on the later flight in the opening leg, Lisa & Michelle made quick enemies of Michael & Scott when the two teams squabbled over a spot on an earlier sea plane due to Michelle grabbing the pen for the sign-up board from Michael's hand, giving the sisters a bit of a cushion. However, Lisa later struggled with a challenging Roadblock, opting to take the four-hour penalty with Michael & Scott and Keith & Whitney. In the ensuing race to get a taxi to the Pit Stop, the firefighters got their revenge on the sisters when they shoved Lisa & Michelle to get a taxi first. The sisters then finished just behind the other two teams in the three-way race to the Pit Stop, becoming the first team eliminated.

Lisa[]

Name: Lisa Thomson
Age: 28
Hometown: Miami Beach, Fla.
Connection to your teammate: Sister
Current occupation: Real Estate Agent
Describe what you do: I sell Real Estate in Miami along with my sister. We work 24/7 and sell a high volume of homes in Miami and have to deal with all different cultures and personalities.
3 words to describe you: Competitive, loud/outspoken and funny.
Favorite hobbies: Working out, diving and running.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? In the last 6–7 years I have been able to create one of the top 10 real estate teams in Florida. Last year we sold more homes than any other agent in South Florida (and there are 24,000 agents in Miami).
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Barbie (the Real Estate version).
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Blake Lively.
What scares you most about traveling? Language barriers and getting sick.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing the world! I have been trapped in a Miami office selling everyone else the dream. I want to see all the different cultures, places and learn new things.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: It could bring us closer together and get us away from the office as we are always working. This experience would allow us the opportunity to separate work from our personal lives and concentrate on our bond together.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She is extremely stubborn.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Africa. I want to go on a safari and also swim with great white sharks. I think Africa is very different from Miami and it would be a great place to explore and see wildlife and the different cultures.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? My sister and I work so hard and have spent the last seven years building this incredible business that we are very successful at, but it has left us with little personal life and I would like to take time to travel and spend quality time together. I recently got married and before I start to have a family, I would like to have this one last challenge with my sister.
