Justin Young 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 sister Jennifer Young. He is a 31-year-old doctor from Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Here is an interview with Justin Young ("Amazing Race 19"):

Describe what you do: I took time off from surgery residency and am now considering a change into emergency medicine. I plan to work part-time as an ER physician and at REI, while transitioning back into clinical training as an emergency medicine resident in 2012.

How will these skills help you win The Race? Focus, drive, attention to detail and endurance are skills essential to surviving residency. I know they will help on even the toughest legs of The Race.

Three words to describe you: Funny, observant and adventurous.

Favorite hobbies: Watching movies, rock climbing and skiing.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Charlie Brown

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Tina Turner

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Becoming a doctor.

What scares you most about traveling? Accidentally getting lost in dangerous areas or offending local people. I would like to represent the U.S. in a positive way.

What excites you most about traveling? The novelty of it. I love adventures, seeing new places and meeting new people.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: She shuts down when she gets hungry or sleepy and has a tendency to get really mean when this happens.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Her hunger and her sleep rage—she can get pretty irrational when she feels she has been wronged.

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

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain an even stronger relationship and give her another reason to be proud of me as her big brother.
