The Amazing Race 24

Here is an interview with Margie O'Donnell:

Describe what you do: I monitor diabetes clinical research trials — new drug clinical trials.

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Season 14 we did really well. We never finished lower than 4th place, but on season 18 we made a lot of mistakes.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Finishing in 1st place on the 1st leg, and Phil "signed" for Luke, "You are team #1." So emotional.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Guilin, China — so beautiful. I would love to go back some day.

Why do you want to run the Race again? I keep asking myself that same question, I am 56 now — just for the adventure and the friendships you form.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? The first two times we were on the Race I was single. I got married in 2011, and I think that I am happier now than ever before.

What are you passionate about? My husband, my grandchildren, my job, my free time and vacations.

People would be surprised to learn: I married a man, at age 54, I have known since I was 6 years old.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Communication is always a challenge in the race. It is almost impossible to communicate when we cannot see each other, so there are situations where we do not communicate very well.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? We really wanted to visit Ireland; my mother's family is from there and I have always wanted to go.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Getting to travel with Luke. He was living in Alaska, and then moved to Philadelphia, so I do not get to see him very often.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I will try to be more patient, I have to realize that Luke is a grown man.


The Amazing Race 18

Here is an interview with Margie Adams:

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not drinking enough water and becoming dehydrated in Thailand. I fainted.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Finishing in first place for the first leg of the Race.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Thailand, it was number one on my wish list for Season 14 so getting to go to both Bangkok and Phuket was fantastic.



Why do you want to run the Race again? It was one of the most exciting and best experiences of my life. I am looking forward to all the new places we will go.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I am more confident and more willing to try new things.

What are you passionate about? People being kind and accepting of each other.

People would be surprised to learn: Nothing, I'm pretty boring.

One location that you hope to go on this adventure: Ireland, my grandparents are from there and I would love to see the country.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Some of the challenges require you to be able to listen/hear/sign and when those challenges come up we have to pick the other challenge since Luke is completely deaf. He cannot hear or use oral language.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars)? Getting to spend time one-on-one with Luke

Pet peeve about your teammate: He is a very loud eater.

What would you do if you won the million dollars? Retire a few years earlier than planned.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We need to be more careful about reading the clues.


The Amazing Race 14

This mother/son team is determined to show the world that nothing can stop them from living out their dreams. They enjoy hiking and traveling together and share a strong bond. Luke has been deaf since the age of two, and Margie became his link to the hearing world. Luke uses sign language to communicate.
