    Nat & Kat - TAR 17

    Nat & Kat



    Nat Strand
    Age: 31

    Hometown: Scottsdale, Ariz.

    Connection to your Teammate: Friend

    Current occupation: Doctor

    Favorite hobbies: Scuba diving, skiing and traveling

    Achievements: Becoming a doctor

    Lifelong to do list: Cage dive with great white sharks, take pilot lessons, finish a triathlon, establish a comprehensive pain rehabilitation center, write a book and learn how to speak Spanish.

    What scares you most about traveling? Not having access to medical care

    What excites you most about traveling? Traveling will give me the opportunity to see new places, learn about different cultures and grow as a person

    If I could switch places with someone: The Dalai Lama or Heidi Klum

    Role model/hero: My Dad. He is the kindest person I know.

    What are you passionate about? I am passionate about helping people live the best possible life.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? If we were to win the million dollars, I would donate money to support challenged athletes and to support the search for a cure for Diabetes. I would pay off my debts from medical school and I would buy a baby blue vintage Bronco with the top chopped off.

    People would be surprised to learn: I am absolutely terrified of heights.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: Belize

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: We went to get our backpack for the Race and we could not find Kat's car in the parking garage afterwards. We were in the completely wrong parking structure. Navigation might be our biggest challenge.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain personal satisfaction from traveling, meet new people and represent strong, career oriented females.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: Kat is so perfect! I don't have a pet peeve.

    Age: 35

    Hometown: Santa Monica, Calif.

    Connection to your Teammate: Friend

    Current occupation: Doctor

    Favorite hobbies: Cycling, traveling and eating

    Achievements: The biggest achievement for me was completing medical school and residency - both of which did not come easy for me.

    Lifelong to do list: Learn to scuba dive, surf and cook; have a rewarding career where I am proud of my work; live a healthy and balanced life; have a loving family; run the New York City marathon; remember to live in the present

    What scares you most about traveling? Getting sick

    What excites you most about traveling? Meeting new people and seeing/experiencing new things - that makes me reflect and learn something new about myself.

    If I could switch places with someone: Maybe only for one day, I would switch with a comedian like Chelsea Handler. She's hysterical and what a great skill to be able to make an entire room erupt in laughter.

    Role model/hero: I'm inspired by a lot of people -- especially strong, successful women. Thanks to all the female physicians before who paved the way for my generation of doctors.

    What are you passionate about? Travel, love and good food

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? Donate to charity, pay off part of my medical school loans and bring some loved ones on a sweet vacation

    People would be surprised to learn: I'm very sensitive and emotional.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: Bali

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Having to adjust to not being in control of our daily schedules

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope to have a fun adventure. One million dollars would also help make a huge dent in my enormous student loans.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: She tends to show up late for things (fashionably of course).

    No not you, her smile is very force. Should be an interesting team to watch.

    No. I wonder who started the "Be sure to show ALL your teeth!" thing anyway. It's so fake looking. Anyway, I'm sure these are smart ladies, but I predict they will not do so well. Also, I have to at the pair of doctors being afraid they will get sick or need medical attention as their biggest fear.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I really like this team! They seem so cute and nerdy, but not so much so that they won't be able to run the race. I can't wait to see them in action.

    The not being able to find their car after buying backpacks seems like a bad sign. I'd love to see the non-pageant girls go far.

    Afraid of heights and navigationally challenged? Hmm...sounds like an early boot to me. That being said, though, they'll probably end up in the Final 3...

    I love them even more after last night! They're tied with Gary and Mallory as my favorite team right now. :

    I really like these two, but one (Nat, I think) has Type 1 diabetes and that may cause her problems. If you've ever lived with someone who has that disease you know that when you don't get regular meals at regular times you run the risk of problems.
    So far, these 2 are my favs!
