  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? Withdraw the full amount in one-dollar bills, put it in a kiddie pool, jump in, jump out and take a shower (apparently money is really dirty).

  • Favorite place you have ever visited: Princeton, N.J.
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Staying in harmony (musically and competitively)

  • Hometown: Cranford, N.J.
  • Connection to your Teammate: Best friend
  • Current occupation: Student
  • Favorite hobbies: Singing in our a cappella group, filmmaking and filling out surveys

  • What are you passionate about? Tweezin' the old unibrow
  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I were to win the million dollars I would buy a pony, but just one.
  • People would be surprised to learn: That my name, "Jonathan," is translated to mean "gift from God." Coincidence? I think not.

  • What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? On the Race, I hope to accomplish world peace, eradicate hunger and give Phil Keoghan a buzz cut.
