Profile

Retrieved from CBS.com

When Tony Aiello first met the men who would eventually capture the hearts of his three beloved daughters, he never thought he'd end up racing around the world with them. "Forget about it," he'd quip.

Compelled by a gnawing curiosity about how his three sons-in-law would handle such a competition, Tony, leads the unlikely foursome from Mansfield, Massachusetts, for their first official trip without their wives by their side.

Tony, 57, is the leader in both age and experience. He works as a restaurant consultant and describes himself as protective and competitive. Even though his favorite movie of all time is the "Godfather," his tough exterior melts away when it comes to his daughters, who he says are his greatest accomplishment.

Kevin, 31, is married to one of Tony's twin daughters. His successful career in public relations for a high-tech company has honed his diplomatic skills. The father of two is a self-described risk-taker with a love for travel and adventure.

Matt, also 31, works as corporate project manager and is known for his fearlessness and sense of humor. Matt, married to Tony's other twin daughter, is a father of two as well.

David, 26, is the youngest on the team, but the most well-trained. His career as a police officer in Rhode Island is preceded by eight years as an infantryman in the U.S. Marine Corps. He's married to Tony's youngest daughter.

The Race will surely show these in-laws the different sides to each other as they are forced to bond outside the familiar comfort of their family circle.[1]
