TAR 16: Daniel Pious and Jordan Pious--Brothers
« on: January 21, 2010, 12:27:19 PM »
Daniel and Jordan

Brothers







Daniel Pious
Age:  24
Hometown:  Barrington, R.I.
Connection to your teammate: Brother
Current Occupation: Financial Advisor
Pet peeve about your teammate: He is very intense
Favorite hobbies: Watching and playing sports
Achievements: Being at the Winter Classic when the Bruins won in overtime
Lifelong to do list:  Get a job with a major Boston sports team, get married, have kids and make them huge Boston sports fans
If I could switch places with someone: Theo Epstein (GM of the Red Sox)
Role Model/Hero: My dad and my grandfather
What are you passionate about? Boston sports
What would you do if you won the million dollars? I’d save and invest it.
People would be surprised to learn: That I really dislike traveling and it will probably be the most difficult part of the race for me
Favorite place you have ever visited:  Fenway Park
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Staying under the radar and not rubbing the other teams the wrong way, and finding food that I like
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Jordan always wanted to be on the Race because it was his #1 dream in life.  All I really want is to make it far enough so Jordan feels as if his dream is achieved


Jordan Pious
Age: 22
Hometown: Barrington, R.I.
Connection to your teammate: Brother
Current Occupation: Strategic Consultant
Pet peeve about your teammate: He hates to travel
Favorite hobbies: Tennis, New England Patriots, dancing to my own beat
Achievements: Graduating from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School with High Distinction in May 2009
Lifelong to do list: Travel the world, meet Tom Brady and start my own company.
If I could switch places with someone: I wouldn’t
Role Model/Hero: My parents. Their love for each other and our family, their work ethic, and the way they have supported me have really shaped who I am today. Also, Karen Rein, my best friend and life partner. She is what life is all about, love, happiness, and laughter
What are you passionate about? Tackling life challenges and chasing after new ones and Boston sports
What would you do if you won the million dollars: Save the money and use it to pay for my MBA
People would be surprised to learn: I was considerably overweight during a decent portion of my teenage years.  I weighed 200 lbs and was only 5'1".
Favorite place you have ever visited: Israel
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Focusing our intensity and competitive spirits on the Race itself rather than on each other
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I want to create memories with my best friend and show my brother that there is more to our world than what we see at home

They both approved me on FB and Dan was so nice to send me a PM thanking me for supporting them. He was very appreciative. I really do think they are going to be a fun team to watch.

I'm sure JorDaniel will do well this season! When I see them, Derek and Drew come to my mind. Not physically, but they look like a F4 bet.

Another brother team where one of the brothers is a longtime fan of the show. Since this brother team is eight years younger than Jet and Cord, there isn't as much of a track record to go on. But it they communicate and work well together, they can be in the mix towards the end as well. (But I do worry that Dan's self-admitted need to be a control freak could pose problems.)

Hopefully these guys don't repeatedly harp on Miss Teen USA, or they WILL start grating.

It was funny the first time, but then he kept doing it and it got old. When he ran to tell Carol and Brady about it at the airport then it was just annoying.

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Why are so many Rhode Islanders on reality-TV shows?


Quote
we do know four Rhode Islanders who are getting lots of air time. Jordan and Daniel Pious of Barrington are brothers and one team on this season’s “The Amazing Race.” Another team is Louis D. Stravato of Bristol and Michael Naylor of Warwick.

For the Barrington brothers, going on the show was not Daniel’s idea. “I hate to travel, but I hate it a little bit less now.”

Going on the show was Jordan’s idea. He has watched every episode of the show since it started.

“I was enamored with the premise of the show,” Jordan, a strategic consultant, says. “You get an opportunity to travel the world and the chance to win $1 million. Sign me up.”

So Jordan signed up, and Daniel agreed to be his teammate. In auditions, both were simply themselves.

“We’re the same people at all times,” Daniel, a financial consultant, says. “That’s the real us. Casting saw that.”

But even people who are themselves don’t get cast in reality shows. There has to be something more, which apparently the Pious brothers have got.

“We have similar personalities yet extremely different interests,” Jordan says. “That makes for an interesting dynamic. I like boys. He likes girls. But it goes beyond that. It creates an interesting relationship.”

hmm, what an unique name Shue, looks Chinese to me

Evan, turns out Shue is not his middle name. Dan PM'd me on FB telling me it's Benjamin (thank god) and he says that Jordan calls him all kinds of names and Daniel Shue was one of them. I have since modified my birthday wish post on here with the proper name.
