You can catch “Big Brother” finalist Christmas Abbott on Wednesday during a meet-and-greet at the downtown Raleigh juice and raw food bar Raleigh Raw.
The meet-and-greet, advertised on Abbott’s Facebook page, is from 2-4 p.m. at 7 W. Hargett St. Raleigh Raw will serve juice and smoothie samples.
Abbott finished third in the 2017 season of “Big Brother” on CBS. She broke her foot in the second week in the house and had surgery to repair the extensive damage.
Abbott is a 35-year-old competitive CrossFit star who owns the CrossFit Invoke gym in Raleigh. Before she started CrossFit training in 2006, she worked as a civilian contractor in Iraq. In 2012 she trained to become the first woman to work in a Sprint Series NASCAR pit crew, working as a tire-changer on the Michael Waltrip team. She ended up leaving the team before getting to change a tire during a race. She is the author of two books: “The Badass Body Diet” (2015) and “The Badass Life” (2017).
