"'The Amazing Race' racer Redmond Ramos talks: We never complained but Matt Ladley and I were in intense pain!
"Matt and Redmond dominated the leg getting to all but one destinations before anyone else and winning the leg. Coupled with their previous performance throughout the race, this brings them back to the top of the rankings"
In second place is Matt, a pro snowboarder with an Olympic gold medal. Matt chooses Redmond, the former Navy Corpsman with a prosthetic leg, as his partner. Matt says Redmond seems like the kind of guy who won’t give up when the going gets tough. Good guess.
"He enjoys giving back through volunteer work with youth and other veterans. The theme of the event – 'Drug Free, Warrior Strong' – was inspired by Redmond."
