TARA5: Lisa & Nic Truong-Marchetto (Life Partners) (Vietnam)
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:08:26 AM »


Lisa & Nic
#TARANicLisa


Name: Lisa Truong-Marchetto
Age: 38
Occupation: Business Manager


List 3 adjectives that best describes you:
Playful, light-hearted and down for anything

Which famous person reminds you of yourself?
Justin Timberlake - although I can't sing

What excites you most about travelling?
The unknown and the adventure.

Why do you want to be on The Amazing Race Asia?
It is my absolute dream to go on The Amazing Race. I have literally been watching it for years and I feel like I am perfect for it - because of my resilience in stressful situations, my physical ability, my travel savvy, my resourcefulness, and my ability to always look on the bright side of things no matter what. I love all the games, the obstacles, the detours, the challenges.

Name: Nic Truong Marchettp
Age: 34
Occupation: Behavior Analyst/Psychologist


List 3 adjectives that best describes you:
Passionate, emotional and enthusiastic

Which famous person reminds you of yourself?
Jillian Michaels

What excites you most about travelling?
The chance to challenge my notions and expand my mind, to share magical moments of human connectedness (sometimes even without language involved), especially playing and laughing with kids I encounter - maybe dancing or simply throwing a rock with them. I'd do anything to get that smile. It also gives me the chance to experience and immerse myself in other cultures, to challenge my own understanding of humanity, and life perspectives/priorities...

Why do you want to be on The Amazing Race Asia?
I have to say - it has always been a dream of Lisa to be on The Amazing Race! Her dreams are my dreams so when she pitched it to me, I was totally on board. And we want to bring the happy-go-lucky, CAN-DO culture of Vietnam to the race!

Lisa and Nic are going to bring the happy-go-lucky and CAN-DO culture of Vietnam to the race!

✓ Known each other for close to 5 years
✓ Nic is more expressive and emotional while Lisa is more logical and calculative
✓ They are super competitive even towards each other

At least these two were more classy than sore losers Eric & Lisa. \_(ツ)_/

Still though ugh... they were robbed and had the potential :(

If TAR Asia ever does an All-Stars version, THESE TWO ARE TO RECEIVE THE FIRST INVITATION!

What happened to them was really sad, but how does 15 mins of air time = all stars?  :groan:

Because they were dog eliminated, that's why they should be asked back

Some or most of us want these 2 to return, but the chances of them being invited back are extremely low that it's bordering impossible. :(

All star is a NO. They will only be back if there is some thing like second chance/unfinished business.

Some similarities:

Eric & Lisa (US S.15) and Lisa & Nicole - Both eliminated at Start Line Task and both with one team member named Lisa

Lisa & Michelle (US S.25) and Lisa & Nicole - Both eliminated 1st (came in at 11th Place) with one team member named Lisa

idk why, but my weird-midnight-thought, they'll be back at the middle of the race (maybe leg 5/6), but with "tagged for elimination" and super-speedbump  :stirtp:
