Describe what you do: I manage the corporate call for one of the PepsiCo Away From Home Team's largest distributors. I am responsible for driving top/bottom line growth, developing short/long-term strategy, and managing all day-to-day internal-external activity on all of our lines of business.

3 words to describe you: Christian, honest and forgiving.

Favorite hobbies: Ultimate Frisbee, salsa dancing and watching movies.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Kicking cancer in the butt.

What scares you most about traveling? I'm not scared of traveling. I love traveling, but definitely losing my wallet overseas would not be the most fun thing.

What excites you most about traveling? I love meeting people from around the world and understanding the genesis of traditions within cultures. It is so fascinating how different the world is yet we all share so many common bonds without even knowing it.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Being a target of other teams.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He snores and he always talks over me.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Egypt - How cool would it be to do a task in the ancient temples and pyramids of Giza? You couldn't recreate that any other place!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I love traveling and seeing new places and I know this will be an opportunity for Brodie and me to see the world in a way that I won't ever have a chance to again. The things that people do on this show are not things normal tourists do, and for that reason alone, this trip is so unique and special.

Best lines!!

My heart was stolen by Carlos tonight, though. Really hope he’s in
every single episode.

Thank God there was a real star on the scene:
Carlos, doing his best Atlas impression.

And since we are bound to hear more about this during editing, here is an interview Kurt did discussing his stage 3 Colon cancer and some of the treatments, and his comeback. Courageous guy.

Which one of these disc-throwing enthusiasts has won two national championships?

That would be Brodie (right), a social media creator with over 5 million followers, who will compete with his close friend Kurt.

Brodie got excited seeing himself on TV when it aired the TAR28 promo during the Super Bowl and he tweeted this picture...

Brodie has done a video commercial for Werner Ladders. You can see it at wernerpodium.com. Pretty amazing stuff. He does a few trick shots involving ladders on a basketball court, then puts frisbees into the basket from all over the arena.
