The Amazing Race 24

Here is an interview with David O'Leary:

Describe what you do: Own and operate apartment buildings.

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: By not reading a clue completely, we had to go back to retrieve our dive gear bag, which made us lose precious time. While running to the mat, I ruptured my Achilles tendon and tore my calf muscle.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Winning the fourth leg in Bali while on crutches.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Bali Why do you want to run the Race again? Really wanted to see how far we could go without an injury — could we get further than we did while on crutches?

How have you changed since the last time you competed? Running with a surgically repaired Achilles and recovering calf muscle, and maybe a little more prepared in terms of having an idea what to expect. Also a year older, which at my age can be significant.

What are you passionate about? My family, faith, cycling, outdoors and travel.

People would be surprised to learn: That I have five children (Connor is the youngest and the only boy) and that I have seven grandchildren.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Communication. We are both strong willed and think we are right most of the time. We will need to try and work together when we both think we need to be going somewhere else, or doing something different.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He can be kind of messy. He will not worry as much as I do about what is coming and what we need to do to be prepared.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would like to visit Myanmar as I understand it has not yet been Westernized with American and international businesses such as McDonalds, etc.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Hope to prove to myself that I could make it further than we did in the prior season and that we can compete against some of the most experienced teams ever on the Race.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: My objective is to never be last on any leg and be first on the last leg. We need to slow down and think about what we are going to do before we rush off without understanding exactly what we need to do. NOT RUPTURE ANYTHING.  


The Amazing Race 22

Here is an interview with David O'Leary:

Describe what you do: I purchase and operate investment properties around the United States. As the father of a large family, I work hard, play hard and view my job as a means to an end and not the end itself.

3 words to describe you: Active, enthusiastic and strong-willed.

Favorite hobbies: Cycling, fly fishing and snow skiing.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being the father of five great kids and the grandfather of six even greater grandkids!

What famous person reminds you of yourself? People have told me I look like Steve Martin but personally I don't remind myself of anyone.

What scares you most about traveling? The inability to communicate in different languages.

What excites you most about traveling? New cultures, places and things to see!

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are both stubborn and think we're right most of the time (I'm right all the time!)

Pet peeve about your teammate: Connor is messy and doesn't put things away.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Thailand. I would like to experience culture truly foreign to me. I would love to experience the diversity of terrain, food, language, culture and activities.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain an unforgettable experience with my son and to celebrate the health that we both now enjoy! Also, my son has wanted to do this for years and he wants to earn the money.
