Amani Pollard
Age: 36
Hometown: Pine Mountain, Ga.
Connection to your teammate: Married­
Current occupation: Business owner
Describe what you do: I own and operate Maize n' Grace, a country chic boutique.
How will these skills help you win The Race? As a mom and business owner I have mastered multitasking, sleepless nights and a schedule that constantly keeps me moving. Getting it done is what I do!
Three words to describe you: Creative, animated and competitive.
Favorite hobbies: Traveling, writing and painting.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Raven Simone and Julia Roberts
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Idris Elba and Kobe Bryant
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Raising four wonderful babies and opening my own business. In one year of operations we’ve received rave reviews.
What scares you most about traveling? Leaving my kids. I’m scared that something will happen to Marcus and/or myself.
What excites you most about traveling? I love seeing the world! Marcus used to say I want to travel too much, but I think now he appreciates getting away and seeing God's beauty.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I can’t decide if he has selective or bad hearing. I hope he hears what I am saying.
Pet peeve about your teammate: His sound effects while I’m driving. He'll say "uurrpp" when he wants me to break, "bammm" (as he hits the dash or window) if he thinks I could have hit something or "you see that car?" I'll be like, "the one right in front of me?"
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Italy, because I love Tuscan architecture, the waterways, buildings, food, vineyards... It's beautiful. I'd also like to go to Africa – an African Safari. I'd love to photograph and experience nature at its simplest and most beautiful.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? An experience of a lifetime and time with my husband. Our marriage has been an amazing race – a honeymoon baby (although we intended to wait) set us on the go mark! We are very family oriented so, between the kids and his 14 year NFL career, he and I only get to steal moments for each other. It will be good to just enjoy each other.

Marcus Pollard
Age: 39
Hometown: Pine Mountain, Ga.
Connection to your teammate: Married
Current occupation: Retired professional football player/football coach
Describe what you do: Giving back to my community as an offensive coordinator.
How will these skills help you win The Race? I know how to study my opponents and put my players in the best position to be successful.
Three words to describe you: Good looking, charming and helpful.
Favorite hobbies: Golfing, fishing and traveling.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Me
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Halle Berry
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I'm most proud of being a great father to my four children.
What scares you most about traveling? Getting lost.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing and experiencing new places, foods and cultures.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: She often asks questions with a fragment. For example, she’ll say, "Baby, money?" I'm like, "Money what!"
Pet peeve about your teammate: When she doesn’t make the bed in the morning.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I’d like to go to China because I'm fascinated with the culture and the traditions.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I want to be able to spend quality time with Amani that we never had because we had children early

I am starting to like this team. Marcus has kind of surprised me in past episodes because he didn't seem that fit for a retired NFL player. But last night he rocked that challenge carrying all those people on his back thru the water. I don't know that any of the other teams could have pulled that one off.

I really like this team too. I couldn't believe they chose that challenge...it was by far the hardest one. But they sure pulled it off and came in 4th.
And next to the snowboarding guys I like this team best.

I thought they were going to throw up on that awful spinning teacup ride. I was concerned the ride provided only one vomit bag per teacup. Thought everyone was going to toss their cookies though, honestly. I heaved after riding a Ferris wheel once. Posted Image
