Tim & Rod
Newlyweds, New South Wales
It was love at first sight for newlyweds, Tim and Rod. The pair tied the knot earlier in the year and have lived in wedded bliss ever since.
The certified personal trainers are in the best physical shape of their life, and have the strength to tackle - and bench press - any obstacle in their way.
Passionate, energetic and always optimistic, the boys rely heavily on one another to be their own support system and tackle any challenge.
Tim and Rod hope to inspire young people struggling with their identity and challenge any negative perceptions of what it means to be gay.
If they win, the boys plan on putting the money towards Rod’s business and then take off to Disneyland!
Get to know Rod (28):
What excites you most about traveling?
Getting away from the normal and experience how others live. Also not knowing what the next day will bring. I love the spontaneity of traveling.
What do you think will be your biggest advantage or strength in the race?
We are in the fittest state of our lives. We rarely argue and are both normally extremely positive likable people, which we think will put us at the front of the pack.
What’s the best part of travelling with your teammate?
It’s so easy. We have the same likes and interests and rarely get on each other’s nerves.
Get to know Tim (29):
What is the biggest challenge or weakness you’ll need to overcome?
Definitely the gross eating challenges would be a struggle, however I’d give it my best shot. I thrive on adrenaline but would still be very scared if we needed to bungee jump or sky dive.
What type of people do you find it difficult to get along with?
I struggle to get along with arrogant and cocky people, who think they’re better than everyone else. I’m not the biggest fan of ingenuine people who are fake and don’t take other people’s feelings into consideration.
What is your proudest achievement in life?
My proudest moment in life was when I married the man of my dreams, on my favourite beach in the world, in front of all my family and friends. I was able to truly be myself and it was the greatest feeling in the world.
