Ernie Halvorsen from "The Amazing Race 2011" is one of the contestants on Season 19 of the CBS reality competition series. He is teamed up with his fiancée Cindy Chiang. He is a 29-year-old project manager from Chicago, Illinois.

Here is an interview with Ernie Halvorsen ("Amazing Race 19"):

Describe what you do: I project manage new printing press installations for commercial and sheet fed printers in North America. I bring the sold contract to life by integrating project team members from design, manufacturing and installation, all while being the single point of contact for my customer.

How will these skills help you win "The Amazing Race"? I frequently delegate tasks and have the ability to optimize work by utilizing a person's skill sets. The majority of my job is dealing with time-critical, problem solving tasks that require urgent responses and decisions.

Three words to describe you: Loyal, comical and energetic.

Favorite hobbies: Traveling, no glove 16" softball, graphic design and origami.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Ty Pennington

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Lucy Liu

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I moved to Germany by myself and lived for a year without ever traveling outside of the U.S. prior and without having any knowledge of the local language. I even joined a German baseball team and made some lifelong friendships.

What scares you most about traveling? Lawless regions where foreigners are not highly regarded.

What excites you most about traveling? Interacting with people and cultures different from my own. Also, getting to experience different sights, smells and tastes that you cannot reproduce outside of the specific country.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on "The Amazing Race" together: I have a roundabout way of explaining my point and my direction can be vague.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Planning—Cindy loves to plan every aspect of our lives and sometimes it can be overwhelming.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? DPRK/North Korea because so much is unknown about it. I've seen videos of the Arirang, which is a great gymnastics and performance display by more than 100,000 North Koreans. I feel like this would be an incredible experience to witness this.

What do you hope to accomplish by running "The Amazing Race" (other then winning one million bucks)? I want to share this once in a lifetime experience of The Race with my fiancée. If we do win, we will have a nice footing to start our social business venture that will be intertwined with the needs that we see around the world.
