Adam Switzer from "The Amazing Race 2013" is one of the contestants in Season 23 of the CBS reality competition series. He is teamed up with his childhood friend, Brandon Squyres. They are both beard lovers. Adam is a 34-year-old eco-friendly farmer from Chico, California.

Here is an interview with Adam Switzer:

Describe what you do: I am a U.S.F.S. seasonal wildlife firefighter currently working fulltime on a 22-acre farm in the woods that I own to create an international hostel based on organic

permaculture, sustainable living and alternative construction techniques.

Three words to describe you: Adventurous, outgoing and hurley-burley (constant state of chaos, flux and clamor).

Favorite hobbies: Mountain biking, back-packing and building (bikes, houses, inventions, etc.).

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being able to fight fires in the summers, travel the world in the winters and still save enough over the years to buy my 22-acre farm in the woods.  

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Mad Max, with a sprinkle of Robin William's stand-up.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Abe Lincoln or Henry Rollins.

What scares you most about traveling? Nothing, really. Maybe it eventually ending. I often end up staying in sketchy quarters to stay on the cheap, but you just have to be more aware, not scared.  

What excites you most about traveling? Food! I love almost all food and love trying even the most freakish grub. I also really enjoy meeting new people and seeing new cultures. It usually restores my faith in humanity. Lastly, animals! I'm an animal freak. I studied zoology a little in college and usually head for the jungle.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: It will be hard to listen to each other when we are amped up and screaming.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He's straight edge, and when I'm on a tear he provokes any possible trouble for me to get into. Not really a pet peeve because he is always there to get me out of whatever jam he gets me into! 

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Madagascar — unique bio diversity that evolved separate than almost any other, or Mongolia to buy a horse, travel the plains and experience nomadic culture.  

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Having a riot and traveling with my great buddy who I don't get to see enough in our current situations. I want to make people laugh, cry, love and hate us. See how we stack up in the end… are we really the best?
