Brook and Claire

Brook Roberts

Age: 27

Hometown: San Diego, Calif.

Connection to your Teammate: Best Friend/Co-host

Current occupation: Home Shopping Television Host

Favorite hobbies: Snow skiing, spending time with my family, scrapbooking and traveling

Achievements: I'm proud that I'm a self-sufficient woman. I make a six figure salary in my twenties and I don't need to be supported by anyone financially.

Lifelong to do list: Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and take over for Kelly Ripa when she's ready to retire

What scares you most about traveling? Disease! I'm so scared of getting an incurable disease.

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new cultures and meeting people that live a life unlike mine

If I could switch places with someone: Kelly Ripa or Giuliana Rancic from E! News

Role model/hero: My entire family -- from my grandparents to my six siblings -- they all inspire me to be a better person. They keep me grounded and they're a team of role models who live humble, respectful and fulfilling lives.

What are you passionate about? I'm passionate about anything that involves traveling, gemstones and family. Ive been to mines all over the world and I know the chemical makeup of just about every gemstone on the planet! I'm certified from both the Gemological Institute of America and The Diamond Council of America.

What would you do if you won the million dollars? If we win the million dollars I would send my little sister to college and buy a house in Malibu.

People would be surprised to learn: Most people find my job intriguing. I'm a jewelry home shopping host.

Favorite place you have ever visited: My favorite place in the world is Bali, Indonesia. The island is crammed with history, art, spirituality and enchanting people.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: It will be a challenge not to laugh our way out of any obstacle. Claire and I both have a wicked sense of humor and every time we face adversity we break out in fits of laughter and jokes. We are here to win and want to have a good time doing it.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? It would be an experience that would bond us together for life. I think everyone out there wants to develop stronger and deeper bonds with their best friend.

Pet peeve about your teammate: My pet peeve about Claire is that she is really bossy and gets easily offended when I don't listen to her advice.

Claire Champlin

Age: 30

Hometown: Reno, Nev.

Connection to your Teammate: Best Friend/Co-host

Current occupation: Home Shopping Television Host

Favorite hobbies: Snowboarding, horseback riding and traveling

Achievements: My career is my biggest achievement

Lifelong to do list: Travel, meet new people, have new experiences and continue to grow as a person -- everything that the Race has to offer. Guess I can check that one off my bucket list.

What scares you most about traveling? The food is probably the scariest part of traveling.

What excites you most about traveling? All the adventures and the people you meet

If I could switch places with someone: No one. I love and cherish my life. I am truly blessed and never take that for granted.

Role model/hero: My dad is my hero he always strives to go above and beyond what he thinks he is capable of.

What are you passionate about? Family

What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I were to win the million dollars I would invest it wisely and make another million.

People would be surprised to learn: That's a hard one. I'm pretty much an open book.

Favorite place you have ever visited: Favorite place on the planet is Costa Rica, hands down. The scenery is gorgeous and the people are so genuine and kind.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Ha! Please. Brook and I can take on anything -- as long as it doesn't require a lot of running.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I'm running the Race to have a great adventure and for an amazing experience.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Brooke always looks good. Even when she wakes up in the morning it looks like she has a full face of make-up.

Okay, how many people had to replay that a few times, maybe even in slow mo? It really is amazing she didn't get seriously hurt the way her head snapped back though.

I fully expected to hate these two but I am surprised. They really worked well together and when they spoke about the watermelon thing they both got the giggles. I like that they don't take themselves so seriously.

I really like these 2 so far. The watermelon incident really sealed the deal. I serioulsy can not imagine what it would feel like to get a water melon smack in the face...ouch. Then she gets up and finishes the challenge and then had me laughing at her while they were running to Phil. I can't feel my face....I can't feel my face....I can't feel my face. She is one tough cookie.

The blonde gets on my nerves. Love how she dumps the crappy tasks on Claire, then yells stupid supposed to be encouraging, but actually annoying, crap at her the whole time. :fish:

They are hanging in there, but they need to step it up and beat out those two dating couples.

There was no team this season that I was really rooting for to win. But this is a team I am hoping DOES NOT win. Make that half the team, actually. Claire is OK but Brook bugs the crap out of me. I really can't stand her.

I agree. She's so manic she's hard to watch let alone like. I'm rooting for the doctors. They seem the most genuine and the most collaborative- no drama with them, just steady progress. It would be a nice chance to see them win- and not because they are both female.

LOL I was saying the same thing last night. Brook is just plain old annoying. BUT if the docs don't win, I hope this team does. I really really dislike Jill and Thomas (especially Thomas).

I thought I'd dislike Jill & Thomas but I kind of like them. I'd take them over Brook in a heartbeat.

Oh crap. My joy that this team did not win was short lived when I saw that they would be on the next installment of TAR. I cannot believe I have to suffer through more of Brook.
