Partaking in new cuisines.

We are quick to argue and both of us think we are the smartest people in the room.

Pet peeve about your teammate:

Brent never admits when he is wrong.

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

There are two: Italy, because I can't believe I have never been, and Russia because of the history and culture.

If we win, we could finally be together under the same roof every night for the first time in three years. Being apart during the workweek has been a struggle and gone on far too long.
