    Chad & Stephanie - TAR 17

    Chad & Stephanie




    Chad Waltrip
    Age: 26

    Hometown: Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

    Connection to your Teammate: Boyfriend

    Current occupation: Operations Manager

    Favorite hobbies: Traveling, outdoor sports and cooking

    Achievements: I've had a lot of success at my age within the company I work for, IST Management Services.

    Lifelong to do list: Write a novel, complete an Ironman and run my own business

    What scares you most about traveling? The thought of getting arrested while abroad for something I didn't do and not being able to get out of jail is a little terrifying.

    What excites you most about traveling? The time leading up to the destination and the chance to see a totally different world from mine

    If I could switch places with someone: Mathew McConaughey - It would be awesome to star in the movies he has been in as well as live life the way he does.

    Role model/hero: My mom is definitely my biggest hero. She raised my brother and me alone for 11 years until she re-married. She always made sure we never lacked in experiencing life to the fullest or making excuses for why something couldn't be done. She passed away from cancer when I was 18 and fought until the very end.

    What are you passionate about? I'm very passionate about living life to the fullest and getting to know all walks of life.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? If we were to win the million dollars, I would do my best to invest it wisely even though I might have to blow a little bit first.

    People would be surprised to learn: I'm a great cook..

    Favorite place you have ever visited: Ochos Rios, Jamaica

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Learning to communicate and take a back seat to each other will be our biggest hurdle on the road.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope to grow as a person and as a couple. I really look to gain a whole new perspective on life from the travel and obstacles we will face.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: She has a lot of great ideas, but does not always see them through.

    Stephanie Smith
    Age: 23

    Hometown: Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

    Connection to your Teammate: Girlfriend

    Current occupation: Hair Stylist

    Favorite hobbies: Singing, swimming and water sports

    Achievements: Biggest achievements include placing in the top 10 at Miss USA 2008 and being ranked nationally as a swimmer at age 14.

    Lifelong to do list: It's really too long to list everything, but I want to start my own business, record my own CD, host a variety show and have a happy family of my own. To do these things, I have to keep setting goals and going after them with full force.

    What scares you most about traveling? Breaking a law that I am unaware of

    What excites you most about traveling? Learning about different cultures, people, religions and styles of clothing is what I look forward to most when traveling.

    If I could switch places with someone: Celine Dion. I would love to know how it feels to perform as powerfully as she does.

    Role model/hero: I have a lot of people I look up to for inspiration, my family and friends included. Although I have always been impressed with Kelly Ripa. You can't help but just love her.

    What are you passionate about? I am passionate about whatever makes me happy. I am an enthusiastic person. If I like something and set out to achieve a goal, I am extremely passionate about that task.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? I would try to be a responsible young lady and pay school loans, have a family vacation and invest in another home. Maybe get a new wardrobe too.

    People would be surprised to learn: I can sing. I was in a classic rock band in Charleston, S.C. I would love to start performing again.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: I was a competitive swimmer growing up and was given the opportunity to train at the Colorado Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. It was a gorgeous place and such an exciting trip.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Chad and I are so much alike. The things we love about each other are the same things we hate. Communication will be our biggest hurdle -- and his temper.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? All the positive and negative experiences of traveling with someone you love and then to see how he handles problems we will have to face together.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: He can be inconsiderate of other people's feelings and he can be very brash.

    Another pageant girl? Ugh. Something about him bugs me. Maybe it's the Matt McConaughey love.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Yick. He chooses Matthew McConaughey and she chooses Celine Dion?

    Although, what he says about his Mom will make me like him, I think.

    The answer about his mother is the only thing that is keeping me from really disliking them based on their bios.

    Very cute.

    If you cant read the clue on day 1, when you are fully rested, what's going to happen later on? Seriously people - read the darn clue. I want to like you.

    At the very beginning of the premiere, I was really liking these two. But then his temper came out.

    I do like bickering couples from time to time, but that's only if they're entertaining (ex. Nate and Jen from TAR12). I like her just fine, but from what we've seen so far, he's just mean and aggressive. That's not entertaining in the slightest.
