Today, we're excited to introduce you to Mike Brown and Austen Williams of Team Red on Season 4 of Relative Race!
Find out about their strengths and weaknesses, who they want to meet, and MORE below:
Austen: Hi, I'm Austen.
Mike: And I'm Mike.
Austen: And we're Team Red. This is my dad.
Mike: I'm from Charleston, South Carolina.
BYUtv: Describe your partner in one word
Mike: Obnoxious. [laughing]
Austen: All is right in the world.
Mike: Pretty much.
BYUtv: Where do you think you’ll go on the race?
Mike: I think we're going to be on the East Coast. I would like to go to Vegas.
Austen: I've never been to Vegas so I'm on board for that. But I think we're going to end up in Connecticut because that's where he's from and maybe Philly, Atlanta, North Carolina.
Mike: East Coast.
Austen: South Carolina…those are all my guesses.
BYUtv: Why do you want to be on Relative Race?
Mike: We really don't have a clue who my side of the family is. My biological father, we don't have a hunch. And I'm more interested in passing along the information to my grandkids, her children.
Austen: He says that but he's definitely interested in finding out for himself.
Mike: I'm kind of curious to see what they look like. [laughing]
BYUtv: What is your team’s biggest strength?
Austen: Work smarter, not harder.
Mike: That's kind of how we roll.
Austen: Yep, in real life.
BYUtv: What is your team’s biggest weakness?
Mike: Close proximity to my daughter for ten days.
BYUtv: What are you most excited about?
Mike: I think communication is really what we need to focus on. As long as we can keep the dialogue going and being open and forward thinking all the time.
Austen: Thinking about things in unconventional ways. So working smarter, not harder, is going to be what will shave time off of the challenges and make us excel more quickly.
Mike: That's right.
