What famous person reminds you of yourself?

People have thought I look like JFK.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together:

Sometimes we both have a hard time letting each other talk. We plan on trying to get better about that!

Girlie girl spending. But it's not a deal breaker! It makes her happy and she certainly looks good!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

Antarctica — I would love to see all the animals, landmass and oceans. Whales, penguins, seals, wild oceans!
