The Nakamuras are an active, on-the-go family from Colleyville, TX who love adventure and excitement. They are always searching for their next adventure, and it's this search that landed them on a reality television show - their biggest adventure yet!
Yuki Nakamura, the father and thrill-seeker of the family, is a successful cosmetic surgeon. He also enjoys kite boarding, snowboarding, golfing and bungee jumping. Yuki relocated to America from Japan at a young age. He taught himself English and put himself through college. He is truly a self-made man who enjoys the luxuries with which his hard work has rewarded him.
Yuki relied upon his mother, Hideko, for guidance and moral support during his trying times, and quickly moved her into the Nakamura home when his business began to thrive. Grandmother Hideko cooks all the meals for the family, using traditional Japanese recipes and ingredients. She is well-known and well-loved by the neighbors and all the kids' friends.
Tammy, the Nakamura Mom, a former truck driver from Kentucky, is a strong-willed and determined blonde who co-owns a car wash with her best friend. Her friends and neighbors can always count on Tammy to throw a great party - she is the consummate entertainer, and throws elaborate gatherings at the expansive Nakamura mansion. *Tammy was working at a restaurant when she met Yuki. After dating him for a short time, Tammy asked Yuki to marry her. Years later, they are still in love and have two children, Natalia and Nico.
Natalia Nakamura is a typical 15-year-old. She loves dance and music and is passionate about cheerleading - *she even takes private tumbling lessons at her home to give her a competitive edge. She loves music and movies, shopping and the phone, and spending time with her friends.
Younger brother Nico rounds out the family with his quirky sense of humor and love of video games. Nico has an endearing, inquisitive nature - he loves to ask questions about whatever topic is being discussed and be included in the conversation.
Together, the Nakamura family likes to spend time at their nearby lake house. When they find the time, they boat, water-ski, and barbeque, often with friends and their lake house neighbors. While at the lake house, Natalia will break away to read under a shady tree, while Yuki will rig up the boat for a daring stunt! Tammy, of course, will keep things organized while Nico helps Hideko prepare the food. *
