Meet the Gaghan’s

Another reality show, another pool, this time it’s The Amazing Race. This years Amazing Race is a little different than previous editions that featured teams of 2 racing all over the globe as one by one each team finishing last at a checkpoint was eliminated. This year its teams of four; the family edition. All members on each team are related. This year from what I’ve read the race is confined mostly to North America.

I drew The Gaghan’s. Ohh man how bad is my luck. I get stuck with the family with the second youngest player ever, a nine year old girl (second only to Austin of The Black’s who fell in a puddle of water and had to call for help…they were eliminated).

Meet the Gaghan’s

Bill (Father) – 40 –

Bill works in jet-engine sales and admits his biggest pet peeve about himself is his lack of patience. Bill is hoping the Race will show his family the importance of working together as a team and the benefits of never giving up.

Translation – Hot head who's only joy in life comes from screaming at his wife and kids because they’re never good enough!

Tammy (Mother) - 42 –

Tammy is a substitute teacher for her local school district. Having lived in Korea for over three years, Tammy and Bill have traveled extensively. Both compete in marathons across the country and are planning to run one in each state.

Translation – You know what they say about teachers, well at least she can run! Keep running Tammy or your husband's going to leave you.

Billy (Son) – 12 –

Billy is entering seventh grade and describes himself as outgoing and adventurous. His mother says he's currently going through typical pre-teen mood swings and hopes that this won't interfere with his ability to focus on the Race. Billy's favorite activities are football and running. He intends to show his dad that he has what it takes to compete in the Race.

Translation – You’ll never be good enough for Dad and Mom is in denial and blaming everything on puberty. Outgoing and adventurous, should read, I really can't wait to go to college and find me a boyfriend.

Carissa (Daughter) – 9 -

Carissa, who will be in the fourth grade, is playful and silly. While she is one of the younger Racers, her dad feels her keen eyes and fighting spirit will make up for her small size. She enjoys running with her dog, Blaze, and playing soccer. Carissa wants to show her parents that she is a tough competitor ready to take on the adults in the Race.

Translation – You’re damn right you enjoy running because if you stop running, daddy won’t love you anymore, now get out there and give me another 10k before dinner.
