Not so sure about this, but maybe our other surfer/skiier team member is Tommy Czeschin? Just like Andy he's also a snowboarder. I haven't been able to find a Twitter ...
...he also fits in with the name Tommy being overheard. There's a pic of him below, you can compare it to the racer image.



Here is a better pic:

Do you remember one of the Taipei spotters telling us they thought those two were named Jamie and Tommy?

You've got it oval! Great work!

A simple YouTube search reveals that Tommy is married with 2 kids and is religious. Seems like the type of buddy Andy would partner up with from what we know about him. The guy is also a former Olympian.

I saw a Q and A with Tommy that said he retired from competition in 2009, but that he missed traveling with his team.  Sounds like he got to do some traveling.  :)

Great work guys!  Now that teams are home we can expect a lot of new information becoming available  :tup:

Speaking of....I was bored and did some sleuthing and found an Asian woman named Cindy Chiang who looks VERY similar to the Asian woman on the yellow team. AND she has a  picture with a young white male who also looks VERY similar to the man on the yellow team! And upon further investigation, Cindy is married to an Ernie Halvorsen who I believe could very well be her partner. I even found their wedding website. I feel like the biggest stalker right now!  :lol: Not sure how to post pictures and I don't know if Cindy or Ernie would appreciate their pictures on here if it is or isn't them, so maybe someone else with a little more internet and facial recognition expertise can confirm this or not? Someone feel free to delete this post if I'm wrong about the identification!  :neener:

Awesome! Yay, I contributed! But oops, it appears that Ernie and Cindy are not married YET. They are currently engaged and will be married later this year! And after looking through some of their pictures, they look to be very well traveled!

Yes! Great Work devote!

ETA: Just in case there are more Cindy Chiang's out there, it appears the couple hails from Chicago.

I had forgotten about Kanoe. Was she confirmed?

How do we confirm an identification without their help?  :duno:

If it is Kanoe Gibson, I think the partner looks quite a bit like Kanoe's predecessor, Miss Hawaii 2003, Alicia Jones (married name - formerly Alicia Michioka). Alicia Jones is a friend on Kanoe's Facebook page, but I can't find any other connections between them. Alicia is currently Mrs. Hawaii 2010 for about another 10 days or so. Kanoe has over 1500 Facebook friends and I've only looked at the first page, so there are plenty of other possibilities out there.

Another possibility, though I think it unlikely, is Kanoe's sister Malia who has a music career and has released at least one CD. She has a few videos on Youtube. However, most pictures of Malia don't look like the partner. A few do, so it's slightly possible due to the fuzzy quality of the pictures we have of them.

I'm at work, so I can't upload pictures of Alicia Jones or Malia Gibson. I'll leave that as an exercise for the more adept people out there.

I remember seeing a while back that the singing sister had performed at a wedding during the weekend that the race got underway, so I ruled her out.

I was told it is indeed not her sister Malia. She does have another sister who I couldn't find any pictures of. But as of 2009, they both worked together for the same airline.

Thanks for the info. I didn't check out either one to see what they have been doing lately.

It does appear that Mrs. Hawaii 2011 was crowned a few months ago, so Alicia Jones is not the current Mrs. Hawaii. The Mrs. Hawaii's Facebook page confused the heck out of me just now, so I'm not sure what to make of that site.

Back in May, I came across a film notice for "untitled B-roll"  - filming on June 2, 2011.  It was to take place on  Las Vegas Blvd. on the sidewalk from Flamingo to Tropicana, and there were to be  3 crew filming 2 people walking on sidewalk.  The production company was WRP group.   Hopefully this will help with the search for contestants!
