    Michael & Kevin - TAR 17

    Michael & Kevin



    Michael Wu
    Age: 58

    Hometown: Sugar Land, Texas

    Connection to your Teammate: Father

    Current occupation: Software Consultant and Content Creator/Internet Entertainer

    Favorite hobbies: My favorite hobbies include reading a good book, watching old movies and going to the park/lake.

    Achievements: I have provided a stable and comfortable environment for my two kids to grow up. My wife and I did our best to raise them while running our own business.

    Lifelong to do list: Travel around the world, be good at martial arts like Tai-Chi and pursue an advanced degree

    What scares you most about traveling? Being in an airplane accident

    What excites you most about traveling? Seeing different places and people, and getting out of the routine to do something different

    What are you passionate about? I like to make friends smile and laugh. I also love to share my knowledge with young people and hope to make a difference in their lives.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? I would share half of the amount equally among the 11 teams and the rest I would donate to charity.

    People would be surprised to learn: I am not really comfortable in a competitive situation.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: North European countries

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: We need to try and put our different personalities aside and work to be the best team we can be.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope the Race will be an exciting and fun experience that we can share for the rest of our lives. I'm also sure that facing the challenges and solving them together will definitely make us understand each other better. I hope to improve our relationship.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: He uses foul language in situations when it's not really called for.

    What excites you most about traveling? Getting to experience new places

    If I could switch places with someone: I'd rather not switch places with anyone.

    Role model/hero: My dad. He knows how to keep it real.

    What are you passionate about? Food

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? I would use it to fund a show I have in mind.

    People would be surprised to learn: I make YouTube videos with my dad. My dad is hilarious!

    Favorite place you have ever visited: Amsterdam

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Being decisive and using our heads more than others, because as a team we might be at a disadvantage physically.

    Kevin's YouTube channel: kevjumba (He's the 13th most subscribed user on YouTube; he used to be at #3 in the past)

    He even has a wikipedia page! KevJumba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you look through his videos, you'll find numerous videos of Kevin and his dad.

    I love that dad! He is just too cute. I think they will be funny together on the race and I hope they can stick around for a while.

    So Dad wants to split half the million with the other teams and then donate the other half to charity BUT Jr. wants to fund a project. Hmmm...Wonder who would win out?
