Pet peeve about your teammate: Being late everywhere we go.

What scares you most about traveling? The risk of getting stranded in a foreign country without the resources to get myself home.

What excites you most about traveling? Throwing away the box I usually live in and immersing myself in other cultures and ways of life.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Making sure we balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses to be the best team we can.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He's better at just about everything than I am, which would be more annoying if I didn't like him so much. Luckily it's us against the world, not us against each other.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bora Bora in French Polynesia -- I love water activities and beaches and heat. Add glass bottom huts, drinks with umbrellas, and I'm set.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? This is our chance to compete in a huge game that spans the globe, and we want to be the team that plays it best

Hey, don't knock Let's Players, I subscribe to a few of them (not these two). But I do thank my lucky stars Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie, the king of Let's Players) isn't American, or they may have tried to cast him. Can't stand that guy.

But I will be rooting for this team as well :D

Nic & Sabrina from TAR Canada 3 were 22 and 32. 10 years of difference. Is more than them. Btw, age doesn't care.
And yes, they both look younger.

I don't think people talked about their age difference. Last season, Logan 36 and Chris 46.

What are Burnie and Ashley’s biggest accomplishments?

For Burnie, it'd be releasing a book, TV show, and movie all within a two-month span. Then, for Ashley, who started as a professional gamer, it'd be making a living off what she loves most—being the Executive Producer of The Know and sharing her gaming passion with other geeky individuals.
