I used to slam her locker shut every morning in high school … after she just opened it.

problems for all employees. I also manage the entire network for my organization.

3 words to describe you:

Introspective, talented and thoughtful.

Favorite hobbies:

Watching football, listening to music and cooking.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

Being the first male in my family to graduate from college in four years and being only the second male period to graduate from college in my family.

What famous person reminds you of yourself?

J. Cole because he's from a small town that had a lot of crime and violence, but he managed to steer clear from it. Plus, he went off to college on a prayer and the hope that it would change his life. He also has been in a long relationship with his girlfriend that he hasn't married yet and he struggles with it.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

Kandi from "Real Housewives Atlanta." They look a lot alike to me, and they have some of the same behavior patterns.

What scares you most about traveling?

Getting sick from food poisoning or being in a small space for an extended period of time. I'm claustrophobic and my stomach doesn't agree with everything.

What excites you most about traveling?

Meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I like seeing things from different perspectives.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together:

She never listens to me even though I'm usually right. She doesn't think things through all the time and can be very impulsive.

Pet peeve about your teammate:

She tells her mom EVERYTHING!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

Paris, France. Lebya and I have always talked about going there. It's a beautiful city with a great cooking culture.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)?

I hope to gain the knowledge that I'm 100% sure that this is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. If our relationship makes it through this show I'm pretty sure I'll pop the question.

How could the Race change the current state of your relationship?

It could lead to me proposing. I feel like if we can make it through this race we can make it through anything.
