If Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder looks familiar, it’s because this isn’t her first rodeo in reality television — the on-again-off-again girlfriend of Jax Taylor appeared on the Family Edition Amazing Race in 2005 and RadarOnline.com has the photo to prove it.
Stassi, her father Mark, step-mother Char and brother Hunter competed on Season 8 of the hit ABC show and came in fifth place, but the SUR Lounge waitress is barely recognizable with her much shorter, much darker hairstyle.
“I didn’t have any reservations about doing the show,” Stassi told OK! Magazine in an exclusive video interview about signing on for the Bravo reality show.
“Honestly, when I heard about this opportunity I just was like, ‘Yes! I’m gonna dominate this crap.’”
Co-star and admitted one-time mistress of Brandi Glanville‘s ex hubby and LeAnn Rimes‘ current beau, Eddie Cibrian, Sheana Marie chimed in to say she had no prior experience on reality TV like Stassi did.
“You’ve been on reality TV before. Me being an actress, I just automatically, when I heard reality TV shows I was, ‘No, no, no. Not gonna do that. No one’s going to take me seriously,’”
“But then finally I sat down with Lisa. She told me the concept of the show and it’s a very career driven show; it shows us working hard. That’s how we make our money, to pay our bills, we have to work in the restaurant. Tips are everything.”
And since appearing on Lisa Vanderpump‘s reality show, Jax says industry folks have bombarded him.
“It’s amazing how many people have come out of the woodwork,” Jax said. “How many friend requests, how many agents, or how many managers are, ‘Hey, I remember you. Whatcha doing? Why haven’t we talked?’ I talked to you five years ago, you blew me off. Oh, now you want to be my best friend. It’s amazing.”
