Despite the age gap, Preston and Lorelei used to be extremely close. Preston credits Lorelei as the driving force for his coming out to their conservative family ten years prior. While Preston went off to New York City to work in hotel management, Lorelei stayed home in Charleston to help their aging mother run the family's profitable real estate empire. Their relationship was forever changed after their mother's death, when it was revealed the family business had been left to Preston--and he was accepting the title and moving home. Lorelei felt cheated. She sacrificed her life for the family biz and got nothing in return. Furious, she quit and is now considering other options. She also refuses to speak to Preston. In a last ditch effort to save their relationship, Preston asked his baby sis if she'd join THE RACE, their favorite show. Lorelei agreed, but only because without the family business, she's ready for a new adventure, not--she emphasized--because she wants to spend anymore time with her "traitor" brother.
