  • Quotes

    • Mirna: (regarding Marshall and Lance) Being a lawyer, I have to deal with despicable human beings on a constant basis.

    • Mirna: (to Dustin and Kandice) Just take your padded bras and stuff you stuff you stuff them with and go somewhere else.

    • Mirna: (reading a letter from Marshall and Lance) You say that you speak five languages, but it turns out you can't even speak English. (stops reading) Oh really!!

    • Charla: She looks like a prostitute.
      Mirna: Well, a prostitute would know where the disco is, wouldn't she?

    • Eric: Did you find a better flight?
      Mirna: The truth is that we found the best flight and we decided not to take it so we can hang out with you!

    • Mirna: (to a local) I'm sorry I'm wearing a bathing suit. It is very weird, I know!

    • Mirna: I think Colin's jealous of me. He has a Napoleon complex. His girlfriend is submissive and he's able to dominate her.

    • Mirna: (regarding Colin and Christe) They're scum of the Earth, but they think they own the Earth.

    • Mirna: Charla, can we play a quick hand of blackjack, we can double our money!
      Charla: (smatches the clue) No!

    • Mirna: It's so cold. I feel like an icicle.
      Charla: Maybe we can be a popsicle so somebody can suck us!

    • Mirna: Stop fighting. We are trying to make love, not war!

    • Mirna: Colin is a tough competitor. We respect the fact that he is such a tough competitor. It's a stressful circumstance. It's tough conditions. And I think initially, when most of the teams saw us, they didn't really think we would be competitors. So some of them tend to discard us. And he was one of them. And I think it took him by surprise, so much to the point where it upset him and infuriated him to see us doing so well. We don't want any of that to stop us. We were there to have fun. It was a chance of a lifetime.

    • Mirna: We knew we had to use our minds to get a step ahead, because physically, it was going to be more demanding to do some of the challenges. That's why we always tried to get the earlier flight and work extra hard to do those things.

    • Mirna: Going into the race, we decided on what our strengths and weaknesses would be. Clearly, Charla is a stronger eater. I felt hopefully I could make up for it in the running or rock climbing or something like that. So Charla really pulled her weight with the eating. She did a great job. She was one of the top competitors when it came to that.

  • Mirna ran The Amazing Race with Charla.

    Mirna is from an Armenian descent and ran The Amazing Race with her cousin Charla. Charla suffers from a form of dwarfism. On The Amazing Race, the two finished in sixth place, but managed to come in second place, three times.

    Then, the two were selected to compete in the All-Stars version of the show. There, they finished third, winning two legs along the way.

    Mirna is funny and hard working. She did so much on the race, more than what one person would normally do. Mirna is also a lawyer, and she had to end fifty cases in six weeks, before their original race.moreless
