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.

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.

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.

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.
