People packed the USF Sundome to see the world famous Harlem Globetrotters.

10 News caught up with Lofton.He is in his 9th season with the Globetrotters, and has visited 75 countries.

"Big Easy" says his constant travelling helps him on the "Amazing Race".

"I enjoy it. I love being on the show; I love the comradery and meeting new people," he told 10 News, adding that he also enjoyed giving kids someone to look up to. "You get to be a role model for the kids. You get to show them that you can go around and compete for a million dollars, but you can do it with class and dignity."

This is his third time competing on the hit CBS reality show, and he'll be running the race with fellow globe trotter "Flight Time".

He says his favorite challenges are the physical ones where they have to lift heavy things or run long distances.

"Big Easy" says he would do the amazing race over and over again as long as they'll have him.

You can watch the amazing race Sundays at 8 on CBS and 10 News.
