The first thing that struck me about them is that they don't quite fit one of the typical molds of teams. They will probably suffer from pride and overconfidence :lol:

I'm really surprised there are two male teams over 40. These two remind me of Louie & Michael, too. Their video rubs me the wrong way for some reason I can't explain, so for these two I'll just have to wait for the first episode.

Also the guy on the right (J.J.?) looks way too much like my high school geometry teacher, it's seriously creeping me out.

JJ seems to be a bit naive. Wanting to put a "face on border patrol agents"? Sorry, not buying that. Not sure about this team.

I found them waaaaaay annoying on the premiere. I wasn't expecting it, but I was surprised at how much I didn't like these two.

They may be competitive on the Race, but I will always appreciate border patrol agents for what they do for my country :)
