The Amazing Race 24

Here is an interview with John Erck:

Describe what you do: I use a software application called Xcode and a language called Objective-C to write iPhone and iPad apps.

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Failed to use our Express Pass.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Racing across crazy, cool-colored water in Bora Bora on a jet ski with Jess on the back, in pursuit of a million dollars. Like, literally looking over and thinking "If we can pass those guys over there, we'll be in first place towards a million dollars!" I figure when James Bond is racing across the ocean, at any moment they might yell, "Cut!" but with the Race, it's for real!

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Bora Bora.

Why do you want to run the Race again? There's nothing else like it. Even if you could afford to travel the world and had the time to do it you couldn't really replicate the experience. It's traveling and competing and stepping into the unknown and meeting lots of cool new people along the way and racing for a million dollars with your best friend.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I'd say probably the main difference is the length of my hair. No, but seriously, I think the main difference is that we know what an Express Pass is.

What are you passionate about? I like to write code, surf, drink coffee and hang out with friends and family.

People would be surprised to learn: That Phil really likes my hair this season.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Locals.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She still leaves a trail of bobby pins wherever she goes.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Western Australia, South Africa or Chile. Waves and wildlife.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? For me, it's more about an adventure with Jess than anything else. The filming of the show, the traveling, etc. is a lot of fun and we want to be a part of that again.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: Yes. We're just going to take it one leg at a time.

Describe what you do: I run a web development and design company called Above Market. We code what our clients want.

3 words to describe you: Coffee, code and surf.

Favorite hobbies: Coding (PHP and Objective C), drinking coffee and surfing 12th Street or the pier in Huntington Beach.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having the guts to quit my well paid corporate IT job to pursue a life of hacking and entrepreneurship.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Macklemore.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Angelina Jolie.

What scares you most about traveling? Getting locked up abroad.

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new things.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Jessica's mumbling and me not being able to understand what she's saying!

Pet peeve about your teammate: Sometimes Jess tunes me out when I'm telling an awesome story.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Australia, to go surfing, feed white sharks and scuba dive the great barrier reef.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Challenge and adventure.
