Jeff Schroeder had the opportunity to travel the world as a competitor on last season ofÂ CBS‘Â The Amazing Race, and now he’s at it again. The formerÂ Big Brother star competed on The Amazing Race with his girlfriend (also from Big Brother), Jordan Lloyd, earlier this year and now Jeff Schroeder is traveling the globe for another TV show. He’s setting out on a 100-day journey without any cash! Keep reading for more details on Jeff Schroeder’s newest traveling show…
Jeff Schroeder has certainly had his share of TV roles in the past couple of years. He appeared as a housemate on Big Brother (where he met girlfriend, Jordan Lloyd) before landing a spot onÂ The Amazing Race. He also guest-starred on soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful. Now he’s traveling around the world without any money for a newÂ CBS web series called Around the World for Free.
Getting the opportunity to work on a travel-themed show is a dream come true for Jeff Schroeder. “Not to be too philosophical, but Iâ€™ve learned that anything can happen if you really believe in it and want it enough,” he says. “Iâ€™ve been saying it for a long time and I know that [Big Brother] andÂ The Amazing Race were springboards for me to get this show. But itâ€™s an amazing feeling to realize a dream.”
The premise of the show is simple: Jeff Schroeder travels around the world for 100 days without any money. Viewers of the show get to determine where he travels, how he gets there, and where he should stay. Since he’s only allowed to take a backpack, Jeff has to pack light. Fortunately, his reality TV experience taught him how to do just that. “I have to pack light â€” some shorts, some shirts,” he says. “Iâ€™ll just have to pick out a few of my favorites. I wore my Saint Anthony chain onÂ BB andÂ Amazing Race, but I think my parents are getting me a St. Christopher chain. Heâ€™s the patron Saint of travelers, so itâ€™s just going to be, my backpack, my Saints and my camera guy.”
The hardest part about the journey is going to be being away from longtime girlfriend, Jordan Lloyd, but Jeff Schroeder is confident they can make a long-distance relationship work. “Weâ€™ve had our bumps but no break-ups and everything is going great,” he says. “We only get to see each other every two weeks or so. We have to travel back and forth but we vacation together and do a lot of fun things together. Lately Iâ€™ve been busy with the show and sheâ€™s been busy with school, but having to work with a long-distance relationship really worked out for us because when we finally get a break from what weâ€™re doing weâ€™re so excited to see each other. So far, so good.”
