Dan Pious, 'The Amazing Race'
If you're looking for a local to root for on the current season of "The Amazing Race," look no farther than Dan Pious, 24, who is still in the running with his brother Jordan Pious, 22.
Though they are listed on the show as being from their hometown of Barrington, R.I., Dan Pious is a 2007 graduate of the University of Hartford's Barney School of Business who lived in Bloomfield and worked for New England Financial in West Hartford for some years after graduating.
In two weeks of the competition, the two already have succumbed to the brotherly bickering that often occurs, causing them to take a wrong turn. And though they finished near the bottom, they vow to succeed, though Dan admits on the network website that he dislikes traveling, and it is his younger brother whose dream always has been to be on the show.
"The Amazing Race" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on CBS, locally WFSB, Channel 3.
