    Ron and Christina - TAR 18




    Name (Age): Ronald Hsu (61)
    Hometown: Tacoma, Wash.
    Connection to your Teammate: Father
    Current Occupation: Vice President
    Previous Season/Result: Season 12/2nd place

    Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not being uplifting.

    Most memorable moment from your first Race: In Croatia when we conquered our fear of heights and came in first.

    Favorite place you visited on your first season: Croatia because it was so beautiful along the Adriatic Sea. I want to have a second honeymoon with my wife there.

    Why do you want to run the Race again? When else do you have an opportunity to travel around the world like this?

    How have you changed since the last time you competed? I've gotten grayer and wiser.

    What are you passionate about? My family.

    People would be surprised to learn: I make the most delicious and nutritious smoothies.

    One location that you hope to go on this adventure: St. Petersburg, Russia --for its great Hermitage museum.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: I had back surgery last year so I cannot run as fast as the younger racers. It may be a struggle to keep up with them.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): I hope to have a great time with my daughter before she gets married.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: Her navigation skills are shaky.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? Retire. I also want to write a book about my parents walking on foot over 800 miles in the winter of 1947 to escape from the civil war in Northern China.

    Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I will be more uplifting to my teammate.

    Name (Age): Christina Hsu (29)
    Hometown: Wash., D.C.

    Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not taking a deep breath at the final Road Block in Alaska.

    Most memorable moment from your first Race: Milking a camel in Burkina Faso and drinking the camel's milk.

    Favorite place you visited on your first season: I'll never forget zip lining 200 feet into the Adriatic Sea in Croatia.

    Why do you want to run the Race again? It's a second-in-a-lifetime chance to see the world!

    How have you changed since the last time you competed? I've gained a lot more perspective on what is important in life and became happier.

    What are you passionate about? Family, friends and contributing to the local community

    People would be surprised to learn: I completed my first triathlon last year.

    One location that you hope to go on this adventure: Machu Picchu in Peru because that is where my fiance and I would like to travel.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Completing physically exhaustive tasks while sleep deprived.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): To enjoy the moment with my dad and worry less about the outcome.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: My dad snores.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? I want to adopt a Labrador Retriever and buy a house.

    Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I'm going to relax and keep everything in perspective.

    Re: Ron and Christina - TAR 18

    Every time I see Christina, I want to automatically press mute or cover my ears b/c I'm sick and tired of hearing her whine, "Daddy!!!!"

    Seriously, she's 29 and sounds like she's 5. She whines, sshe nitpicks, and she belittles him - ACK!!

    ETA: Forgot to mention how much I dislike Ron's jabs at people - talk about ornery old man!
