    Abbie and Ryan - TAR 21



    Name: Abbie Ginsberg

    Age: 31

    Hometown: Encinitas, Calif.

    Connection to your teammate: Dating Divorcees

    Current occupation: Dance Instructor/Choreographer

    Describe what you do: I technically train competitive students which includes tap, jazz, turning/jumping and condition classes. I also choreograph dance routines and desugn costumes/props for competitive dance groups and soloists on a regional/national level.

    Favorite hobbies: Dance, design and exercise.

    3 words to describe you: Creative, athletic and thoughtful.

    What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of the training and growth that I have provided for the past eight years at my dance studio as well as the accomplishments that I have helped my students to achieve. It is so rewarding to see students achieve their goals and grow as dancers and human beings.

    What famous person reminds you of yourself? Katniss

    What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Hugh Jackman for his stellar good looks (not for the song and dance talent, though.)

    What scares you most about traveling? Getting lost and not having the ability to communicate.

    What excites you most about traveling? I hate how generic this is, but it is trueÖ Exploring new places that I have never been to before.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I would have to say it's a tie between learning to communicate and not piss each other off at the same time. We can be juvenile and sarcastic with one another. The other would be our battle for control/power between over each other. We are both Type "A" and can be bull-headed.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: Heís addicted to his phone and canít disconnect easily. Also, his impulsivity can cause problems.

    What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to visit Paris, France and go back to the 1920s. Can we make that happen? Last time I went I was 21 and broke. I could barely afford a baguette. Iím hoping this time will be a step up from that.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Iím hoping to gain some clarity on what I mean to Ryan. I feel lately that our relationship has become a rollercoaster. The highs are high but the lows are low. I am trying to be patient, but I know what I want and right now he canít give that to me.

    What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Oprah, because she is giving, smart and successful.

    What scares you most about traveling? Being taken and held hostage.

    What excites you most about traveling? Immersing myself in new environments and new people. Absorbing a new culture.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: When we fight I spit venom and donít tend to converse like a normal human being.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: She is over analytical, doesnít compromise and plays the victim.

    What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Thailand Ė It looks beautiful and is close to other counties. I hate traveling to just one place; Iíd prefer to have access to nearby countries.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain clarity about this relationship. Can it work at a time when I want to be boyfriend/girlfriend and she wants something more?

    Ugh, dating divorcees again? It's getting so old now. I'd rather have a team of Metalheads, male strippers, or Monster Truckers nearing 50.

    Well, you know I am rooting for the Metalheads.


    Those shoes are awful. Superficial, I know, but that is what first jumped out at me.

    Re: Abbie and Ryan - TAR 21

    Okay, I just read an interview with Abbie and Ryan, and the last question to them was whether or not they would want to be cast in an All Stars season for the Amazing Race. Abbie said that she absolutely would like to do the race again, and Ryan's answer was interesting. He said that there is a downside to being on a reality tv show and said that he might have burned some bridges and doubted that he would be getting a call in the next day or so asking him to come back. He said that unfortunately for him there was "so much stuff that happened".

    I am just wondering if anyone here has heard what might have happened to make Ryan say something like that? The wording he used in that statement makes me think that the "stuff that happened" must have been between him and production. It seems that Abbie might still be in good standing with the show.

    That's interesting. He does have a temper, we've all seen that. I wonder if he went off on someone in production. Surely not Phil? I can't see anyone going off on Phil, he's just too sweet.

    I wonder if he insinuated that production was the cause of them not making that one flight where they were told they didn't check in so they couldn't board? I can actually see him doing this as it seems to be a trait of his to place blame on everyone but himself.
    "It's just a show" - let's try not to trash people - tptb do that very well all on their own they don't need our help!
