Mark and Char Schroeder are from New Orleans, Louisiana. Mark's two children from a previous marriage, Stassi, 16, and Hunter, 14, round out the well-traveled team.
Mark, 40, is an architect. He enjoys painting, working out and is admittedly arrogant and confident. Mark hopes the Race will teach his family how to rely on each other.
Char, 39, works as a public relations director. Focused and friendly, Char is the family mediator and is forced to step in to resolve family conflicts from time to time.
Stassi is the queen of the family. Outgoing and adventurous, she is entering her senior year of high school.
Her younger brother, Hunter, is entering ninth grade this fall. He describes himself as preppy and hyper. Several of Hunter's teammates complain that he can be lazy at times—a trait not commonly found in the Race.
As they embark on the ultimate family vacation, the ultra-competitive Schroeders are ready for any challenges the Race throws their way.
