    Ron & Tony - TAR 17

    Ron & Tony



    Ron Kellum
    Age: 45

    Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.

    Connection to your Teammate: Best Friend

    Current occupation: Director/Choreographer

    Favorite hobbies: Working out, skiing, golfing and dinners with friends

    Achievements: My biggest achievement came when I was cast in my first Broadway show, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and writing my first book The Gypsy's Survival Guide to Show-Business.

    Lifelong to do list: One day I would like to do outreach work in Africa, host an entertainment show, open a theater and travel the world.

    What scares you most about traveling? Being in another country when there is a terrorist attack

    What excites you most about traveling? Experiencing the world in new ways and discovering new cultures, people and food

    If I could switch places with someone: I'm blessed with an amazing life and love my work and family. I wouldn't want to switch places with anyone, but there are many people that I admire and respect. They inspire me to strive to reach my goals.

    Role model/hero: My mother is my role model and my father is my hero.

    What are you passionate about? Helping actors and performers discover their dreams. Equal rights and equality for all.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? Assist my family, make a donation to my church and invest the rest.
    People would be surprised to learn: I'm a pretty quiet person when I'm not working and I have a deep faith in God.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: Serra Cafema Namibia in Africa

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Because of our size differences, the physical challenges may be our Team's biggest hurdles.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? It will be a dream come true for both of us to run the race together. It will be an amazing opportunity to see and discover parts of the world I would never be able to experience.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: I can't reach him because he is always on the phone.

    Tony Stovall
    Age: 42

    Hometown: Tucson, Ariz.

    Connection to your Teammate: Best friend

    Current occupation: Doctoral Student at the University of Arizona

    Favorite hobbies: Reading, traveling and screenwriting

    Achievements: Getting my MBA

    Lifelong to do list: Ultimately I would like to get a PhD (the journey has begun), become a professor, visit the three continents I haven't been to, skydive and read War & Peace.

    What scares you most about traveling? Political unrest in some places in the world scares me.

    What excites you most about traveling? The idea of experiencing different cultures is what excites me most about traveling. I'm fascinated with people so any chance I get to experience others is great.

    If I could switch places with someone: President Obama (but only for a day or so - I think the stress would kill me)

    Role model/hero: My parents

    What are you passionate about? I'm most passionate about learning, my family and friends and new adventures

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? Pay off my school loans, give a little to charity (that includes my family - charity begins at home), visit the three continents I haven't visited and invest the rest.

    People would be surprised to learn: I like country music.

    Favorite place you have ever visited: China and Southern Africa

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Communicating clearly and calmly with one another will be a challenge for us on the Race.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I think the race will bring us closer together. It will help us to solidify our friendship and give us another amazing adventure together. We are eager for an adventure of a lifetime.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: He's ALWAYS on the phone.

    Will these guys survive without constantly being on the phone? (See "pet peeves") I have to say, I'm don't see anything in the bio to make me have great hopes here.

    I think all of their previous travel experience may help them. I'm really curious to know how the director/choreographer and Ph.D. candidate with an MBA got to be best friends.

    They seemed funny in their video interview, and I think it's cute that they're so close. I think I'll like them on the race.

    Hmmm...did Tony mention there are only 3 continents he has not visited? Yes, we get it...you're a world traveler, ok!
    The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.

    It's surprising how badly they did in England. They were a number of teams who struggled with directions and driving, and Ron & Tony even had a 30 min head start. Too bad, it would have been interesting seeing them in Ghana.

    I was surprised to see them go first. I thought they'd do a lot better.
