When Heather Kuzmich was growing up with Asperger's -- a mild form of Autism that hinders her social interaction and verbal communication -- she said she didn't have a role model and felt "kind of alone."
Lorena Segura and Jason Widener began the fourth leg in last place but assumed they'd at least be given the opportunity to catch-up.
Lisa Jackson knew she had a tendency to be overly emotional before she even was cast as an America's Next Top Model ninth-season runway wannabe. She just wishes it hadn't been on display so regularly.
Jennifer and William had a hard time working together as a team right from the start of Beauty and the Geek's fourth season, however they still managed to bicker and argue their way pretty far into the competition.
Home viewers got to see the drama play out over consecutive nights, but it's been a tough three-month span for eleventh-season The Bachelor bachelorette DeAnna Pappas.
Marianna and Julia Ruiz stopped playing the game for only a moment.
As the youngest castaway in Survivor history, Michael "Frosti" Zernow felt he had something to prove.
Ebony Morgan will apparently be at the top of Ambreal Williams' Christmas card list this holiday season, as Morgan's decision to quit America's Next Top Model allowed Williams an extra two weeks in the competition before she was ousted for the second time during Wednesday night's broadcast.
When Shalandra "Shay" Cham first met her eventual Beauty and the Geek fourth-season partner Joshua Green, she didn't even know people like him existed.
Joshua Green began Beauty and the Geek's fourth season as the creme de la creme of geeks.

Jean-Robert Bellande tried to blind-side his Survivor: China buddy James Clement.
Sarah Hartshorne was cast as America's Next Top Model's only ninth season "plus-size" runway wannabe -- and while she didn't feel like the role was a good fit, she eventually came to embrace it.
John Gardner and Natalie Reeves felt they were one of Beauty and the Geek's strongest fourth-season couples.
Best friends Ari Bonas and Staella Gianakakos were aware of the numerous intangibles facing teams competing on The Amazing Race, and their unknown presented itself in the form of an especially stubborn donkey.
Jaime Dugan made it to Survivor: China's merge playing the "dumb blonde" card.
