Ralph Kelley from "The Amazing Race 2012" is one of the contestants on Season 20 of the CBS reality competition series. He is teamed up with his girlfriend Vanessa Macias. He is a 36-year-old bar owner from San Antonio, Texas.

Here is an interview with Ralph Kelley ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: I own and operate a bar outside of San Antonio.

How will these skills help you win The Race? I am physically fit and dealing with "not so sober" adults gives me considerable patience (or lack of patience) to deal with the sometimes jackass contestants and "partner."

Three words to describe you: Clever, quick-witted and well-made (props to my mom)!

Favorite hobbies: Cooking, reading and exercising.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? The Rock.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Audrey Hepburn — she's a timeless beauty and captivating personality.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being a father to my daughter.

What scares you most about traveling? Not wanting to come back home.

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new places, food and taking in other cultures.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We truly think the same and share the same brain, but we never allow each other to finish talking without both needing to be "alpha," so I'd really like for her to understand she's not.

Pet peeve about your teammate: The disaster that Hurricane Vanessa leaves in her path — she's really messy!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Greece, for their history and culture.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to test our relationship on different levels of stress and communication planes. I want more than anything to become closer to my partner — and maybe "get lucky" in some off-the-wall locations.
