                Hometown: New York, New York

                Current Occupation: Waiter/Bartender/Manager/Competitive Eater

                Describe what you do: I am a waiter at a very comfortable, high-end pizza/wine bar. I'm an on-hiatus competitive eater, named Eater X, one of the best in the whole wide world! I'm also the world burping champion, according to the World Burping Federation.

                Three words to describe you: Determined, loyal, and daydreamer.

                Favorite hobbies: Skiing, sleeping, crossword puzzles, and reading the news and trying to understand this world.

                What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?
                I was the third eater ever to eat 50 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Joey was the second. Nobody believed I could do it until I did it, but I worked hard and surprised everybody. I felt like I did what I once thought was impossible, and in general I'm proud of myself anytime I persevere.

                What scares you most about traveling?
                Nothing. It's an adventure. I'm on vacation. Who cares?

                What excites you most about traveling?
                I love learning new things about people and customs. People do things differently all around the world, and it's easy for us to believe that our way is somehow better or makes more sense than somebody else's. But when you travel and you're open to learning, you see that every way is valid and worthwhile and worthy of respect. We do things a certain way because that's what took hold where we are, not because our ways are any better than anybody else's. I really enjoy being reminded of that again and again and again by seeing it firsthand.

                What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
                Australia. I love it down there—the land, the animals, the accents. If I get eliminated in Australia, I may never come home.

                What do you hope to accomplish by running the race (other than winning $1 million)?
                It would be a lot of fun for me to hang out and goof around with Joey. We've always lived on opposite coasts, and we've always competed against each other. We're friends, and we've traveled together for contests, but we've always been rivals. Win or lose, it'd be cool to bond over this adventure and this shared goal.

                  Hometown: Park City, Utah

                  Current occupation: Professional skier, coach/mentor, and marketing manager

                  Describe what you do: As a professional skier I formerly competed intensely on the world stage in halfpipe skiing. I now create content (video, photo, and written word) to share the power that outdoor adventure can have in one's life. It's time spent outdoors, pursuing new challenges, that teaches me about this world and helps me be a better person. I also help various publishing entities make money through referral-based advertising (that's technically my day job now!).

                  Three words to describe you: Indomitable, intelligent, competitive, and empathetic.

                  Favorite hobbies: Skiing, writing, mountain biking, and coaching.

                  What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?
                  I am most proud of my impenetrable mind. Coming back from numerous injuries to continue my pursuits in skiing, I was able to return strong and have big wins after some pretty major knee injuries.

                  What scares you most about traveling?
                  Not being able to communicate effectively to get where we're trying to go. Also, potentially getting sick from food and/or water.

                  What excites you most about traveling?
                  Seeing the different ways that people go about their daily lives, immersing myself in someone else's culture, realizing how BIG the world truly is, and experiencing new cuisine!

                  What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
                  I would most like to visit Southeast Asia (Vietnam or Thailand)—it's an area of the world that I've never been able to visit. The mountains and hills look breathtaking and the architecture is majestic. Most of my travels have taken me to snow-capped mountains, so traveling to a warmer climate would be a nice change of pace!

                  What do you hope to accomplish by running the race (other than winning $1 million)?
                  Besides winning, I hope to reignite my inner competitor, to fight hard for something again, and to work as a team toward a common goal! My competitive ski career ended short because of injury and I left some things on the table—I don't want to let that happen ever again!
