Zev and Justin
Zev Glassenberg (26); Justin Kanew (30)
Hometown: Sherman Oaks, Calif. / Los Angeles
Occupation: Unemployed/VP of Production and Development for National Lampoon
Zev and Justin's friendship started six years ago when they were working as camp counselors and the two have been very close ever since. Zev has Asperger's Syndrome, but they don't let it affect their relationship. They share friends and interests, and the friendship is as mutually beneficial as any could be.
Zev is an avid sports fan — especially basketball — and he has an intense competitive spirit. He describes himself as funny, modest, and loyal, and is running the Race to prove to himself that he can do anything.
Justin prides himself on his patience and his ability to problem solve. He admits the biggest difference between he and his partner is that Zev is not great in large groups of people — one of the characteristics of Asperger's — while Justin is very easy-going and can assimilate himself into any group.
Outside of the occasional trip to Vegas (where Justin took Zev to lose his virginity), neither has traveled extensively, particularly with one another. Their relationship is spontaneous and unedited and resembles one of brothers more than friends.

(too much running and jumping and climbing, etc. over and over).
I usually don't mind if I've missed an episode or part of an AR show....
but... this team will keep me tuned in.
As Marty mentioned... loved their humor and also how well they're tuned into each other.
Hope they're in for the long haul.
Had to look up Zev's disorder - not familiar with it.
Asperger syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder, and people with it therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.

People with VERY high functioning Asperger's are often not even diagnosed until later in life -- they learn to compensate and fit in, and often just seem a little odd or eccentric.
But again, each person with Asperger's is different (much like the rest of us - we're all unique and different).

He really does seem like a sweet kid, him giving that guy his jacket was one of the sweetest things ever! I love this team and I'm definitely rooting for them. I think the relationship that these two have is really awesome, Justin seems like he'd be a good best friend to have.
