The Amazing Race is a Reality program featuring 11 teams of 2 (except the third, fourth, eleventh and "family edition" which had 12 teams) racing around the world for a cash prize of $1,000,000. The teams compete in thirteen legs traveling all over the world.
Hometown: San Diego, Calif.
Connection to your teammate: Spouse
Current occupation: OB/GYN
Describe what you do: I’m an OB/GYN- I catch babies (usually in the middle of the night) and take out uteruses.
3 words to describe you: Energetic, funny and smart.
Favorite hobbies: Driving, photography and karaoke.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being a successful Board Certified Physician and an OB/GYN fellow before age 40- while coming from an immigrant first generation family. I worked for my American dream!
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Sheldon from “The Big Bang Theory” and Short-Round from “Indiana Jones.”
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? A mix between Jennifer Aniston and Katniss from “The Hunger Games.”
What scares you most about traveling? Nothing really. I wanted to live in the airport when I was a kid. Losing my passport would be a fear I guess.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new places, experiencing different cultures and learning about the local customs. I try to learn a new language each time I travel.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Because we’re both professionals, we like things done our way. We’re both very stubborn; sometimes she won’t admit I’m right just to stand her ground.
Pet peeve about your teammate: Her messiness. Her hair is everywhere. Sometimes, she cries over the smallest things.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to race to China and Vietnam as I’ve never been to China and Cindy has never been to Vietnam- both with history tied to our roots!
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? We’re still learning about each other on a daily basis. We fight and we’re thinking of starting a family. The past year has been difficult. We need something like the Amazing Race to find each other again. Spend time together and see if we have what it takes to be teammates and future parents.
