Jamil Abdur-Rahman from "The Amazing Race 2013" is one of the contestants on Season 22 of the CBS reality competition series. He is teamed up with his twin brother and fellow OB/GYN physician, Idries Abdur-Rahman. They are both 36 years old and live in Chicago, Illinois.

Here is an interview with Jamil Abdur-Rahman ("Amazing Race"):

Describe what you do: Provide specialized medical and surgical care for disorders of the female reproductive tract. Manage pregnancies from conception through labor

and delivery. 

3 words to describe you: Driven, humorous and compassionate.

Favorite hobbies: Flying, running and antiquing.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Completing the U.S. Army Officer Basic Course and becoming a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Medical Corp after completing residency.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? George W. Bush, deceptively capable.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Barack Obama, obviously capable.

What scares you most about traveling? Returning home when you have a name like Jamil Abdur-Rahman. Customs agents rarely make you feel "welcome." 

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing, tasting, smelling, hearing and experiencing something that I may never do again.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I hope that running the Race will help us both to not only effectively listen to one and other, but to actually hear one and other and to more effectively hear and digest what the other is saying.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Idries at times can be passive aggressive and patronizing. When we disagree he rarely confronts you directly but instead is holier than thou and stubborn.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? "The door of no return" in Ghana. I have always hated the fact that as an African American I do not know where my ancestors came from. Walking those grounds would mean that I might be setting foot where my ancestor once walked.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I want to step beyond my comfort zone and to be pushed beyond my limits. Hopefully, in the process I can become more comfortable in my skin.
