Squirrel Hill native Becca Droz will be a contestant on season 31 of “The Amazing Race,” premiering on Wednesday, April 17, at 9 p.m.

Dubbed the “All-Star Season,” the program — which takes pairs of players throughout the world to compete in challenges for a prize of $1 million — will include fan-favorite teams from three CBS reality shows: “The Amazing Race,” “Survivor” and “Big Brother.”

Droz will be paired again with Floyd Pierce, 23, a financial advisor from Boulder, Colo. The two competed together as “Team Fun” in Season 29 of the show. Droz and Pierce became known on the show for their continual upbeat attitudes.

Droz, the daughter of Cathy and Dan Droz, is a rock-climbing instructor also based in Boulder, Colo. She attended Community Day School and is a graduate of Pittsburgh Allderdice.

“Team Fun” made it through five continents in Season 29, but was eliminated in Vietnam when Pierce had to transport 32 shrimp traps on a bicycle and suffered from what appeared to be heat exhaustion and dehydration, and the team could not complete the challenge. PJC
