Hi Tina! Happy New Year!  :hearts:

Did y'all talk about what you might have to do for a FF before the race? Anything you might NOT have done?

You rocked that climb the tower challenge (esp if heights are a problem), but would you have shaved your heads? Gotten a tattoo? (I don't like that one for health reasons...)

Did y'all have time to think about things like Bird Flu with all those bird/chicken tasks?

Inquiring minds like to know... :lol3:

Hope everyone is doing great as January is winding down!  We are crazy busy this week with the Super Bowl in town....lots of charity work and appearances!!!!
Both Kenny and I would have done just about any FF challenge and we talked about it before we left on the Race.  I would not have looked as beautiful as Joyce with a shaved head....and would hope we could have the tatoo on the hip or somewhere hidden.....but the Sky Tower although daunting was an AMAZING experience.
So - what do you all think of the new teams????  Just saw their videos - sort of sad that now we are not up on the site when you click on it....but AR must move on.  Still hoping for an All Star invite someday!!!
XOXO, T

I will always love you Tina! You and Ken are one of my top favorite teams ever <3, don't ever think we'd forget about you.
On the new teams, well I like to see them in action before I say much but it looks like a promising cast and have a few pre-race favs. I call Brad & Victoria "Ken and Tina redux" and am hoping they are as awesome as you and Ken are.
I can't wait to see which is the "evil" team, and which is the team we love to hate, which teams hate what teams  :yess:. And we already know, thanks to Michael, which teams have the Michael Jinx on their heads as in redheads...............curse him  :lol:

Love you ALL......Puddin, Georgia Peach, Kiwi Jay, Michael, TarAsia Fan, Hooky, Snooky 101......

I think I may have gotten "bird flu" in Kazakhstan....cannot shake a deep cough....

Wondering if any of you might have a copy of the CBS commercial that ran earlier in January.....a kind of montage "Through the Years".....with I Love Lucy and other shows....and then they showed Kenny and I on the mat with Phil!!!!  We saw it once and I thought I had it on our DVR....but alas NO...it is not there.......we received many calls, emails etc. about this Ad and I would love a copy....cannot seem to find anyone at CBS who can put their hands on it.  We felt honored that the only team shown from all the seasons was us...very special!!!

Keep in touch and we will let you know when there are any new developments......we did a photo shoot and there will be an article soon for the February Valentine's Issue of a woman's mag and we are taping the Daytime Show next Monday which airs Wednesday, February 3 in over 100 markets.   :hearts:  XOXOXO, T

Tina, get you to a travel medical specialist for a checkup, it won't be Bird Flu but you might need antibiotics...

I'd like to see that too! Puddin? ???

Amazing Race Contenders Ken and Tina Greene

Ken and Tina
Others raced solely for the million dollars, but for the Greenes, the prize was much greater: the opportunity to possibly salvage their marriage. The South Tampa couple left for a whirlwind trek around the globe on CBS’s “The Amazing Race 13” and placed second (seven minutes behind first). They returned home with renewed hope for a second chance together.

Ken: “I love Tina, because she is a rare combination of beauty, brilliance with a caring and giving heart for the less fortunate.”

Tina: "Kenny is a wonderful blend of warmth, fun and adventure wrapped up in a great package! He has truly captured my imagination and my heart.”

MORE ON KEN & TINA...
Seven years ago, Ken and Tina were introduced by a mutual friend. Two years later, they married and came together with five combined grown children between them ranging in age from 24 to 28. According to Ken, a former college football coach for 14 years and in the NFL himself before that, there was just something there from the moment he laid eyes on his wife. “She’s very beautiful and there’s a soft, gentle spirit about her,” he says. Tina, a CEO for a local biotech and pharmaceutical placement company, says Ken is the perfect balance to her tendency to prefer the fast pace. “He’s fun and teaches me to stop and smell the roses,” she says with a laugh. “He’s got such a positive attitude about life that you love being around him.”

The two, always active and adventurous in sports and travels abroad, were fans of the reality competition series for year, having seen every previous season before entering themselves. Tina says the application and selection process was a test in itself. “It was a long, drawn-out process. We were separated at the time – Kenny had been in San Diego building and I had already moved back to Tampa but for a whole month we went through psychiatric testing, physical evaluation and casting director meetings,” she says. “We only found out about a month before we left that we were being selected!” They were accepted after applying their first time, an uncommon feat in the world of reality television.

The dangers and mysteries of traveling abroad and competing in often high-endurance challenges didn’t worry Ken and Tina. Having your life and relationship exposed to everyone in the world so completely was their only reservation. “When you agree to do a show like that, you’re exposing your personal life to the world. Tina’s even more private than me. But once we were chosen, we were so excited to get started. We’re real adventure travelers in our own lives and we knew that physically, we were up to the challenge,” he says. Tina notes her biggest surprise in watching the shows later was how conversation snip-its could be moved around and taken out of context. “Most surprising to me was that they could take something I said once and play it 20 times,” she says with a laugh. “You are miked the whole time in the race, so you just don’t know what they will use. Other than that, I think they did an exceptional job considering how much footage they had of every team.”

Tina says the couple’s different personalities and backgrounds were such an asset in the competition. “I think we both agree his strengths are my weaknesses and vice versa. Kenny having coaching experience really helped. He was patient with people and he challenged me to push through my fears.”

One aspect of their Amazing Race run that was not featured after editing was the team’s decision to keep their separated status hidden from the other teams. “We thought they might use this information to drive a greater wedge between us, so we never told any of the teams. Only the producers knew,” Tina says. “When Ken brought out our wedding rings at the end of the race, the other teams were completely stunned to learn that we had been separated.”

The couple placed in second to a twenty-something brother and sister team and just missed the first place spot by a reported 7 minutes. Returning home last May, they weren’t allowed to tell friends or family they were on the show until August when the show began airing, and keeping the outcome a secret was yet another challenge. But Tina says the local buzz and excitement about their run in the race was the most fun to watch from here at home. “It was incredible to see how many lives we touched. There were parties each week in Tampa and St. Pete and one in Seattle and San Francisco where we have family or lived before,” she says.

Since their return, Ken and Tina have been discussing with several cable networks a special televised renewal of their wedding vows on broadcast television and hope to raise funds for a charity during the event. Recently, Tina also was named Chairperson of the Board for the Children’s Cancer Center, an organization with which she’s had a long history. “I’ve been with them for many years, starting as a volunteer there years ago. The Center is a wonderful organization that seeks to help local families continue to pay their rent and keep them in their homes throughout very costly cancer treatment programs,” she says.

Ken says that the couple loves taking part in outdoor activities, especially on the water since Tina hails from California and Ken grew up in the mountains of Washington state and were surprised (and a little disappointed) there weren’t more water-related challenges during their season. When they’re not working, they love kayaking and fishing, going to all of the Bucs games, entertaining and anything football-related. Ten months ago, the two also became grandparents for the first time which they say has also been a blessing and they love spending time with their new grandson whenever they can.

To couples who might be struggling or contemplating separation as Ken and Tina had, they’d like to offer a little advice. Ken says taking the time to stop and examine your relationship is invaluable. “Never be in a hurry to do anything drastic. There is time to just stand back and sigh and pray. At no time will a relationship always be easy. But you have to take care of one another,” he says. Tina also notes the importance of faith to helping them strengthen their marriage. “Finding our way back to the Lord and helping our son launch a new church in St Pete has been really important in rebuilding our marriage. We’ve even been asked to be elders in the church,” she says. “Refocusing our faith helped us find each other again.”
