Name: Dave Brown Jr.
Age: 33
Hometown: Madison, Wis.
Connection to your teammate: Married
Current occupation: U.S. Army Officer

Describe what you do: I have served in a variety of capacities as an officer for the Wisconsin Army National Guard including Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot, Military Intelligence Officer, and Assistant Professor of Military Science for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
How will these skills help you win The Race? The obvious response would be the ability to cope and manage excessive stressors, and physical fitness due to the nature of the challenges. But persistence and attention to detail seem to be the attributes most essential for success.
Three words to describe you: Motivated, resourceful and aggressive.
Favorite hobbies: Socializing, boating, fitness and traveling.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Bill Clinton – we share a common affinity for music, politics, academics and socializing.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Marilyn Monroe – being vivacious, beautiful and the center of attention.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having graduated from undergraduate studies in three years while being a young father (unexpectedly), a full-time employee and serving in the National Guard.
What scares you most about traveling? Being disoriented in an unfamiliar environment without knowing the language.
What excites you most about traveling? Experiencing foreign cultures and “once-in-a-lifetime” experiences.
Pet peeve about your teammate: Rachel is a persistent optimist which, for a realist can be annoying and overwhelming.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Russia, due to the historical significance of the Cold War and prevalence of vodka!
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Travel, communication and competition. Traveling to exotic locations while honing our communication skills and improving upon our relationship.

Name: Rachel Brown
Age: 30
Hometown: Madison, Wis.
Connection to your teammate: Married
Current occupation: Project Manager

Describe what you do: I manage healthcare software implementations in hospitals and clinics. You probably grew up with paper charts and I am helping replace them, and other electronic medical records, with our software.
How will these skills help you win The Race? I work with and manage many different people and personalities, and I have a “do what it takes” approach to work and life.
Three words to describe you: Optimistic, driven and outgoing.
Favorite hobbies: Dancing, traveling and intramural sports—volleyball, softball, kickball.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Ryan Seacrest—I know he’s a guy, but we both get along with everyone and we are very driven, hard-working people.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? JFK Jr. because he is smart, sexy, witty, likeable and politically savvy.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I’m proud of myself for always being up for trying anything. Life is short and I want to experience as much as I possibly can.
What scares you most about traveling? Nothing scares me when I travel. I dread hotels without elevators when I’m packing heavy, though.
What excites you most about traveling? I love to travel! I love experiencing different cultures…people, history, food, animals and shops.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together? Neither of us likes to be wrong and we are very competitive with each other. I would like to work on being a team and taking each other’s advice.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He’s insanely anal…obsessive-compulsive anal. Things always have to be neat, clean and exactly how he wants them.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bora Bora, Tahiti—I’ve seen pictures and it looks amazing. I would love to stay in one of those huts in the ocean.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to reconnect with Dave. Being away from my husband for a year, with a lack of regular communication and having nothing in common due to our environments was way more difficult than I ever thought it would be.

So far I'm rooting for them. Looks like he may have been deployed, basing that on her comment that they have been separated for a year. I work for the Army so they're the team I feel the most affinity for.

So freaking glad this Rachel beat that Rachel for first place!

They can socialize all they want, hobby or no....they beat out B&R and got the Express Pass (and they deserved it) and they are A1 in my book. Plus, they are from Wisconsin so maybe they can toss Brenchel some cheese for their whine...lol!!!

He's more than a jerk. He borders on abusive. I really don't like him.

Glad they won...they really did deserve it, or at least SHE did.
I hope they can use some of the money for marriage counseling. Kinda sounds like their marriage was having problems and being on TAR was a chance to work through them.

He's a jerk - but I think there might be hope for him. Rachel is a sassy one, she cracked me up giving him shit!
