    TAR 10 - Vipul & Arti



    Vipul & Arti - Married

    Vipul & Arti are the first Indian-American Team to run the Race. Both speak several languages and are well-traveled. Vipul admits to being a bit overzealous, while Arti takes great pride in her ability to reign in his emotions and focus him in on his strengths--a skill she will undoubtedly be forced to call upon while racing around the world.

    I'm always debating whether being well travelled means anything for a team. I don't think it's ever given a team a huge advantage in the past and teams on their turf have lost. But all I can look at are the size of their backpacks; somehow I think that'll be their undoing Hopefully I'm wrong, because they seem like a nice couple that would be interesting to watch.

    They do have some overstuffed backpacks! Speaking several languages will be a great advantage for them.

    I think being well travelled served BJ & Tyler pretty well last year. Couple that with knowing several languages, and this team looks pretty good.

    If they can do well in the tasks, they could be the team to beat.

    I think well traveled helps. Especially if the race sends them to a place they have already been. Gives them a distinct advantage.

    I'm in the dark about this team, I could either end up loving them or hating them. Arti looks gorgeous in that picture, though.

    A team that is well travelled and speaks different languages. They are one team to look out for.

    They are my pre-show favorites based on the little info we have and the intro videos.
