This year Wesson brought her daughter and she says the emotional level that the twist brings to the show will keep everyone watching.

"Little did we know, we thought we'd be playing with our loved ones. Come to find out we're playing against our loved ones. so that's definitely hard," said Wesson. "I'm so excited to be back on the show and represent Knoxville and be on the show with my daughter."
