What scares you most about traveling? Missing my flight or a bad taxi.
What excites you most about traveling? Meeting and interacting with different cultures.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Sometimes my cousin doesnít listen or take my advice or direction to heart. I want to show him that I mean well and have him listen and be patient with me.
Pet peeve about your teammate: That he is very secretive and sometimes isnít serious enough.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Venezuela, because the women are beautiful in South America.

To interact with and actually leave a life-lasting memory to somebody across the world would give me a feeling of making some type of difference in their life even if itís only for a short time.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We need to trust one another more often and not be too stubborn. Sometimes we may need to agree to disagree and not bicker a lot.
Pet peeve about your teammate: Heís very sensitive to things I may say to him or when I critique him.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Kenya, because of the natural wildlife. Iím a big cat fanatic and love the characteristics. To see them in the wild would be nice.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? To have more patience with one another and get through all challenges and obstacles with Leo. Though it will be difficult, the ultimate feeling should be worth it.

They seem like nice guys. So far, they also seem like the team that is most likely to have neat interaction with locals, which is something that seems to have been missing from the more recent seasons I've watched. Hopefully they do take the time to do that, because it will make the Race that much better for those of us who are watching.

I can root for them! :cheer:

I think this could be a really fun team but may be really careless and make some drastic mistake along the way and causing their elimination. They give me a Zev and Justin vibe.. anyone agrees?? :stare

Yup! Leo really looks like Justin to me. :)

They definitely looks entertaining to me. And I really love to see not-alpha-looking M/M team. Because, they won't only depend on their muscle, but also with their brain. :luvya:

I think Leo/Jamal could really go far though to get back on topic. Kind of remind me a little of Josh/Brent but with a lot stronger leg placings, I hope.

Sorry Peach.  :hug?: 

These guys should get on with the locals very well, since Leo's job has a lot of people skills, but they also seem like the team that is going to embrace the race the most

Q&A with Amazing Race contestant Leo Temory
By jackie mansky ∑ Daily Trojan

Posted Yesterday at 10:29 pm


The Daily Trojan caught up with Temory to talk to him about what he learned at USC and how heís applied that in his life, from building a business to being a contestant on The Amazing Race:

 

DT: What made you decide to go on The Amazing Race?

Temory: My cousin and I were fans from season one, but we were too young at the time. Then he was off doing his own thing, and I was off doing my own thing. And then, finally, the stars aligned. The process is actually not as easy as it looks, but I got a call and the next thing you know, weíre on The Amazing Race and traveling [around] the world. It was probably the funnest, most memorable time of my life ó after USC, of course.

DT: This is your first reality TV show. Did you have any expectations before you started shooting?

Temory: Going in, watching 22 seasons of The Amazing Race on DVD, you think itís easy, but the production that goes into it, the amount of crew, the amount of staff that goes on to make such a show, itís like an orchestra and itís always perfectly orchestrated and itís just remarkable. Itís like if you put the million dollars aside itís like itís priceless, the experience you get.

DT: What was life like as a contestant on reality TV?

Temory: Well, I always love attention. With my group of friends, I like to crack jokes, go up to people, so in that regard I loved having a camera around you 24 hours a day practically recording everything you do, but definitely still to this day it feels surreal, like I canít believe I was on The Amazing Race. I just watched a commercial the other day, and Iím like, ďWow I canít believe thatís me.Ē Iím just thankful I get to relive it again when it airs.

DT: What do you hope audience members take out of your experience on the show?

Temory: I think I really brought the Trojan family mentality out in the race. You could see the humor that we bring, the smarts, the strength that we bring, basically the whole all-around perspective that encompasses the USC culture. I tried my best to bring it to the show with my cousin. Hopefully, everyone sees weíre fun-loving, crazy fans that want to have a good time.

DT: Did you learn anything at USC which you were able to apply to the show?

Temory: If USC taught me one thing, it was to network. I tell that to everybody, everyday, ďNetwork, network!Ē and that went along with The Amazing Race. Itís networking in a different perspective, communicating with different cultures, learning from different cultures, interacting, taking it all in Ö Itís not all about the million dollars, but the experience ó itís the experience of a lifetime.

DT: What do you think you and your cousin bring that gives you an advantage stand apart?

Temory: Definitely what we bring is culture. We bring a little diversity. We can actually connect with all the other cultures around the world, all the different people, different ethnicities from kids to adults. Our parents immigrated here, so they have that aspect. We have that within us because weíre Afghan Americans so I think itíll be easier for us to connect if we visit a third world country or if we visit another country, you know, weíre immigrants, theyíre immigrants so we can all sort of relate. Weíll bring the fun, diversity, excitement Ö a ton of things we bring weíre proud of. But youíll just have to watch and see.

Agreed with the Zev & Justin vibes in a way, in terms of what they do throughout. I might lean toward a heartbreak exit through no errors, but just against other people better than them
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on
