Cindy looks a lot like the Egg McMuffin girl:

Wow, what a great find! I'm 99% sure you're right! Can't make out the name badge but it definitely ends with a Y!

I think they go well together, but I wonder if Cindy will be constantly chastising herself for every mistake. But they remind me of Meghan and Cheyne <3

They remind me of Brian and Ericka and Flo and Zach. I'm waiting for Cindy to breakdown... a whole massive breakdown. It's only Leg 2 and she's freaking out. Flo wasn't even so impressive until about the middle legs. :neener:

I think she was only freaking out when she couldn't BREATHE. Hence the inhaler we saw.

I like them very much...they are great with each other!

 All info from CBS Press Express

Team 1: Ernie and Cindy (Engaged)

Ernie Halvorsen

Age: 29

Hometown: Chicago 

Connection to your teammate: Engaged

Current occupation: Project Manager

 
Describe what you do: I project manage new printing press installations for commercial and sheet fed printers in North America. I bring the sold contract to life by integrating project team members from design, manufacturing and installation, all while being the single point of contact for my customer.

How will these skills help you win The Race? I frequently delegate tasks and have the ability to optimize work by utilizing a person’s skill sets. The majority of my job is dealing with time-critical, problem solving tasks that require urgent responses and decisions.

Three words to describe you: Loyal, comical and energetic.

Favorite hobbies: Traveling, no glove 16” softball, graphic design and origami. 

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Ty Pennington

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Lucy Liu

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I moved to Germany by myself and lived for a year without ever traveling outside of the U.S. prior and without having any knowledge of the local language. I even joined a German baseball team and made some lifelong friendships. 

What scares you most about traveling? Lawless regions where foreigners are not highly regarded.

What excites you most about traveling? Interacting with people and cultures different from my own. Also, getting to experience different sights, smells and tastes that you cannot reproduce outside of the specific country.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I have a roundabout way of explaining my point and my direction can be vague.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Planning – Cindy loves to plan every aspect of our lives and sometimes it can be overwhelming.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? DPRK/North Korea because so much is unknown about it. I’ve seen videos of the Arirang, which is a great gymnastics and performance display by more than 100,000 North Koreans. I feel like this would be an incredible experience to witness this.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I want to share this once in a lifetime experience of The Race with my fiancÚ. If we do win, we will have a nice footing to start our social business venture that will be intertwined with the needs that we see around the world.

 

Cindy Chiang

Age: 30

Hometown: Chicago

Connection to your teammate: Engaged

Current occupation: Brand Manager 

 

Describe what you do: I lead a cross-functional brand team. This includes everything from brand strategy, new products, team development, financial management to sales and marketing. 

How will these skills help you win The Race? Through my corporate job, I have been faced with challenging adversity, taking calculated risks and making quick informed decisions. My job is also highly competitive and you must have a strong desire to win with solid performance. All of these skills are vital to winning The Race and I’m confident I can bring it to win it.

Three words to describe you: Determined, dedicated and passionate.

Favorite hobbies: Exercising, cooking and planning. I like to plan anything and everything.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? I’m told that I’m a replica of Lucy Liu, but I would like to be similar to Lauren Conrad from “The Hills.” She is very entrepreneurial, highly accomplished, likeable and friendly.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Zach Morris from “Saved By The Bell.” Ernie loves to be the center of the action and he’s a big jokester. 

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I was crowned Homecoming Queen at my undergraduate university.

What scares you most about traveling? Lack of control – I’m gluten-free and it can often be a challenge to find suitable foods in new locations, especially places where there’s a language barrier.

What excites you most about traveling? I love meeting local people and understanding more about their culture and daily rituals. I find it fascinating that we are all humans, but have very different ways of living a happy life.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Ernie needs to be more direct with me. He is so easy going that he goes along with what I want, but I don’t know if that’s really what he wants.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He’s a really happy-go-lucky person with a positive attitude and outlook on life, but for some crazy reason he always gives me some round-about answer to any of my questions.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? India! I love the rich culture and history of India. I would love to see the Taj Mahal, explore the ‘triangle’ and see the white sandy beaches of Goa.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope we will learn a lot about each other through this process. Our goal is to become entrepreneurs together and The Race will give us a solid opportunity to test our working relationship and see if we can actually work together.

I always feel that weddings are very personal times...we'll see what they might like to share later on, okay?

Congrats in advance! Very pretty couple...

Because my detective itch was kicking in, the photos with the Sears (alright, fine, Willis) Tower were taken at Brownfield, between Roosevelt and Harrison and west of Wellis. I thought that field was fenced up and off-limits!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Pictured: Ernie






In all seriousness, at least Colin had a reason why he should pay less. I guess there was more to the argument that we just didn't see.

Their relationship was not as good tonight. Ernie is always cutting himself down and trying to prove himself to her. But then he wouldn't listen at the second roadblock. Hopefully they can work it out.
