TAR 20: Misa and Maiya Tanaka *Sisters*
« on: January 25, 2012, 09:40:28 AM »

 
 
 
Name: Misa Tanaka
Age: 27
Hometown: San Diego
Connection to your teammate: Sisters
Current occupation: Car Buyer

Describe what you do: I conduct vehicle appraisals, coordinate on-site auctions and attend regional auto auctions to source inventory. I utilize leadership, decision making and time-management skills in a high pressure competitive environment.   
How will these skills help you win The Race? I perform extremely well under pressure and these skills are going to be invaluable when performing detours and Roadblocks. Making the right decisions and utilizing time wisely separates us from the competition and will help us win.
Three words to describe you: Hilarious, passionate and engaging.
Favorite hobbies: Snow boarding, surfing and snorkeling.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Cameron Diaz shes fun, athletic and likes to laugh.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Michelle Branch.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Finishing college and paying my way independently without having to take out any student loans. 
What scares you most about traveling? Illnesses and natural disasters.
What excites you most about traveling? New experiences, learning about other cultures, exploring and trying new things.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Communication issues -- sometimes we don't see eye to eye.  And since were sisters we definitely argue.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She gets bossy and very angry when shes hungry.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Id like to visit Japan. Its where my grandparents grew up, and Id like to be more familiar with my family history.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain a much closer relationship with my sister and experience traveling around the world together. We never travel together.

Name: Maiya Tanaka
Age: 25
Hometown: San Diego
Connection to your teammate: Sisters
Current occupation: Professional Golfer

Describe what you do:
I hit a little white ball around a manicured lawn, toward a small hole in the ground, and try to do this better than everyone else. I compete on the LPGA Symetra Futures Tour.
How will these skills help you win The Race? Im competitive, have a lot of mental and physical talent and drive I want to win!
Three words to describe you: Inquisitive, driven and compassionate.
Favorite hobbies: Golfing, hiking and any competitive game or activity.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Danica Patrick shes competitive in a male dominated sport. 
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Tia or Tamera Mowry.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Starting the girls golf team with my sister at our high school and overcoming the odds with my golf career.
What scares you most about traveling? Getting a weird disease and the food.
What excites you most about traveling? Learning about new cultures and the way others live. Expanding my perspective on the world.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We communicate very differently. Sometimes I dont understand her stubborn ways. She gets mad but then gets over it where as I kind of hold a grudge.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She is stubborn and likes things to be her way or the highway.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Id like to go to Japan because my family is from there and I would like to learn more about our lost culture. I would also like to go to Australia or New Zealand because I love the accents! 
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to build a bond with my only sister. We never get the chance to travel together, and Id like to learn about new cultures while having the adventure of a lifetime.

Nothing you don't already know.  The race started after Thanksgiving in CA and ended in Hawaii by December 20 based on when they were allowed contact with the outside world.

I rarely say this about an all-female team, but I don't get a good vibe from these two... :duno:

That will possibly change once the race begins, though! :tup:
Wanna hear your beating heart tonight

I want to make the best of what is left, hold tight
And hear my beating heart one last time

Another team from my neck of the woods, San Diego county. Teams from this have done rather well. I'll be pulling for them.

I don't know why, but they remind me to Maria & Tiffany from season 15.. But, I really hope they can go much further than Maria & Tiffany. :hrt:

They remind me of Kaylani and Lisa, but the thing is.. I have better vibes about them. They look really fun to watch... but among this competitive cast.. I'm not sure if they can last beyond F8/F9.

My guess (WHICH I HOPE I'M WRONG) is that they may be one of the first three teams eliminated.
