Ron and Christina

Name (Age): Ronald Hsu (61)

Hometown: Tacoma, Wash.

Connection to your Teammate: Father

Current Occupation: Vice President

Previous Season/Result: Season 12/2nd place

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not being uplifting.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: In Croatia when we conquered our fear of heights and came in first.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Croatia because it was so beautiful along the Adriatic Sea. I want to have a second honeymoon with my wife there.

Why do you want to run the Race again? When else do you have an opportunity to travel around the world like this?

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I've gotten grayer and wiser.

What are you passionate about? My family.

People would be surprised to learn: I make the most delicious and nutritious smoothies.

One location that you hope to go on this adventure: St. Petersburg, Russia --for its great Hermitage museum

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: I had back surgery last year so I cannot run as fast as the younger racers. It may be a struggle to keep up with them.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): I hope to have a great time with my daughter before she gets married.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Her navigation skills are shaky.

What would you do if you won the million dollars? Retire. I also want to write a book about my parents walking on foot over 800 miles in the winter of 1947 to escape from the civil war in Northern China.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I will be more uplifting to my teammate.

Why do you want to run the Race again? It's a second-in-a-lifetime chance to see the world!

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I've gained a lot more perspective on what is important in life and became happier.

I like her ok but I can't stand him and his condescending attitude, especially toward other contestants. I don't understand why she'd go on TAR with him once, let alone twice. I was kinda hoping they would get eliminated last night.

It stinks, because I'd like to see her do good, but her dad drives me crazy.. he had no right talking to/about mallory like that.. and in the end she came up and beat them.

Well he was right about Mallory - she does run around all willy nilly! But he needs to chill out when relating to his daughter - she is so sweet and he is just so cranky!

I didn't get the whole deal with the missing fanny pack...did the Globetrotters do that on purpose, accident or was it an innocent mistake??? They had a right to be annoyed about it but Ron's attitude about, well everything, is way over the top.

I think they picked it up by mistake, but then instead of taking it back where it was, they left it in the men's changing room.

So long, Ron & Christina.

Not sad to see you go.

Thanks for some good times and a few laughs this season, though.

(And now, back to the silence of this thread!)

Glad they are gone.

More so for Ron, he reminds me of the old cranky guy who would yell at you to keep off his grass. He complained and sucked at the tasks.
