Name: Kelsey Gerckens
Age: 25
Hometown: Ventura, Calif.
Connection to your teammate: Dating/co-worker 
Current occupation: News reporter at KEYT-TV
Describe what you do: I report and anchor the local news in Santa Barbara and Ventura County. I cover breaking news live on air and turn in daily news stories. I do everything from interviewing to
 filming, writing and editing.
3 words to describe you: Adventure seeker, competitive and over-achiever.
Favorite hobbies: Travelling, scuba diving and food & wine tasting.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Graduating college early and landing my dream job as a reporter. 
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Cameron Diaz - fun, outgoing, silly and loves to dance.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Michael Strahan - similar personality, loves sports and hilarious.
What scares you most about traveling? Being in a violent situation where I am unsafe, and driving on the other side of the road.
What excites you most about traveling? Doing things I have never done before, experiencing different cultures and seeing magnificent things with my own eyes.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Patience, Joey loses his patience very quickly. When he loses his patience, he gets really short. I hope he will learn to listen to me and keep his cool.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He is always watching sports. TV is always on sports and he wonít let me change the channel.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Paris because Iíve never been and I would love to see the Eiffel tower. I think itís romantic. Also, Germany because it looks like a fun party country and Spain because there is so much culture and tradition.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope Joey and I will realize if we are meant to be together. We are a great ďdatingĒ couple, but is it more than that? Should we get married? I hope we can answer that question as we experience the race together.

On Leg 1, in a secret scene on the Pit Stop, Kelsey mentioned TAR2 and how it was cool to visit two of the locations from the original leg.

This leg, Joey mentioned TAR1 and how he remembered teams searching those exact grounds and how amazing it is to finally do it.

Justin who? (only knows Davechel? Has U-Turn logic wrong?)

Kelsey & Joey are the real fans!  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

I like Jeremy & Sandy and actually rooted for them to beat Cindy and Ernie after Andy and Tommy came short. Can't say the same for this team.

Nope, Jeremy & Sandy is way more boring. Joey is great actually, remember he is the puppetmaster
