TAR 22: David & Connor O'Leary "Father/Son Cancer Survivors"
« on: January 23, 2013, 09:01:46 AM »
David & Connor

David & Connor     

Name: David OíLeary
Age: 58
Hometown: Salt Lake City
Connection to your teammate: Father (both David and his son are cancer survivors)
Current occupation: Investment Properties
Describe what you do: I purchase and operate investment properties around the United States. As the father of a large family, I work hard, play hard and view my job as a means to an end and not the end itself.
3 words to describe you: Active, enthusiastic and strong-willed.
Favorite hobbies: Cycling, fly fishing and snow skiing.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being the father of five great kids and the grandfather of six even greater grandkids!
What famous person reminds you of yourself? People have told me I look like Steve Martin but personally I donít remind myself of anyone.
What scares you most about traveling? The inability to communicate in different languages.
What excites you most about traveling? New cultures, places and things to see!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are both stubborn and think weíre right most of the time (Iím right all the time!)
Pet peeve about your teammate: Connor is messy and doesnít put things away.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Thailand. I would like to experience culture truly foreign to me. I would love to experience the diversity of terrain, food, language, culture and activities.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to gain an unforgettable experience with my son and to celebrate the health that we both now enjoy! Also, my son has wanted to do this for years and he wants to earn the money.


Name: Connor OíLeary
Age: 21
Hometown: Salt Lake City
Connection to your teammate: Son (both Connor and his father are cancer survivors)
Current occupation: Professional Cyclist
Describe what you do: I race bikes professionally for a Pro-Continental team Bontrager/LIVESTRONG. I also race for the Under 23 USA National Team.
3 words to describe you: Funny, life-loving and determined.
Favorite hobbies: Cycling, fishing and skiing.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Conquering Cancer.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Rob Dyrdek
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Steve Martin
What scares you most about traveling? The fear of losing a loved one while gone.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new places, experiencing new cultures, and breathing in the air of adventure.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are both hard headed, we both think we are right much of the time, so working on humbling ourselves and working more as one.
Pet peeve about your teammate: This sounds ridiculous, but how he chews his food! He chews his food so loud and for so long. I canít even believe Iím putting that down, but it pisses me off so bad. I canít even explain it. It seems to just be him that does it.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? India or China. The culture and the diversity intrigue me.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? An incredible experience with my father, and to show that anything is possible. Two cancer survivors can come back from incredible odds and do hard things.

I tend to like parent/child teams. The double cancer survivor thing is really, really cool! However I'm not getting a Ron/Christina feel out of these guys. More like a Laurence/Zac.

It's an amazing relationship with an amazing story. They would be a great team to watch and it will be very sad if they get eliminated.

Laurence & Zac... are you "bloody" kidding me? :lol: I see Steve & Josh potential for them.

Is it just me or does Connor remind you of Thomas (TAR17)?

yeah you're probably right. Laurence&Zac were  just  :knuckles:
these two might do a lot better, rather than get lost for 2 hours just trying to drive back freakin'  7 miles to where you just came from

yeah he did seem like Thomas....before I watched the video I thought he looked like Patrick LOL

I could see them going anywhere from early elimination to about half-way. The further they go, the better for me! They have a really neat story, that's for sure.

I don't really like all-male teams but this is one special, family, cancer-surviving and not macterish team. All the way! One of my favourites this season!

My wife and I chose them as our favorites from the very start. Probably means they get eliminated early... :(

regardless on their stories,i think the production pushed em too far. It's like they want us to adore these two...

what annoy me though is that why would you be upset not getting the EP. like you want the EP, then win the freaking leg for god's sake

If they watched TAR19, they probably would have learned from Marcus. :lol:

I think that would largely depend more upon the editors than upon the team itself. In reality, with all the post-leg interviews they do and all the footage that is captured, the team probably talks about a lot of things multiple times in one leg. Based on all that footage the editors have to choose from, they could (for the most part) portray the team in whatever way they choose to.

He definitely said it at the Pit Stop, but that's all I can remember.
