The Globetrotters were messing around - it didn't make her decide not to do it. She obviously wasn't going to do it, no matter what. I agree that she had the opportunity to be a "hero" for overcoming her fear and doing it anyway, as so many before her have done. But, her selfishness won out. Remember the lady who shaved her head? And, there have been tons of them who have bungee jumped, in spite of their big fear of heights. Mika should never have gone on the show if she knew she wouldn't do what she needed to do. There are plenty of other people who would love the opportunity to go on the Amazing Race that would overcome their fears to be there. What a selfish baby!
