Carissa is the youngest female to ever run The Amazing Race, and the youngest person to make it into sixth place.
Carissa Gaghan ran The Amazing Race 8 with her mother, father and brother.
Carissa (referring to the theme song of The Amazing Race) I miss the monkey from the opening shots. I loved that monkey. That's probably a clue they aren't going to any rainforests this time.
Carissa: (reviewing The Amazing Race: All-Stars) Why is Eric with Danielle and not Jeremy? Eric and Jeremy were one of the best teams ever. If they were looking for someone to race with Eric, I would have.
