Pittsburgh native Becca Droz and her teammate, Floyd Pierce, are back on their worldwide adventure in Croatia at 8 p.m. Wednesday on CBS’ “The Amazing Race.”

Droz and Pierce, aka “Team Fun,” are among only six teams left vying for a $1 million prize on a 25,000-plus mile journey around the world. They competed on the show in 2017 and returned for this year’s all-star season.

For tonight’s episode, “expect airport drama, beat-boxing on the beach and a rare glimpse of Becca Droz without braids,” said her father, Dan Droz.

Team Fun, now in their ninth episode of “The Amazing Race,” have survived elimination in the reality show that has taken them to Tokyo, Laos, Vietnam, Dubai, Uganda and Switzerland.

Becca Droz is a 2008 graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School in Squirrel Hill. She works as an entrepreneur and rock climbing instructor in Boulder, Colo.

Becca’s parents, Cathy and Dan Droz, live in Pittsburgh.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
