Marcus and Michael Craig are participants of The Amazing Race Season 34.
Marcus is a tank commander from Richmond Hill, Georgia, and Michael is an Air Force pilot from Alamogordo, New Mexico. Marcus was the one who “introduced” The Amazing Race to his “younger brother”. Marcus completed his elementary and high school at Orrville High School before graduating from Bowie State University in 2015 with a Master of Public Administration (MPA) in public policy and management.
In 2007, he began his career as a franchise owner of Jan-Pro Cleaning Systems and “co-owns and operates a commercial cleaning franchise in the Greater Cleveland area”. According to his LinkedIn page, his franchise was recognized as the “highest-earning franchise in the Greater Cleveland Area, amassing over $200K in revenue” for the 2007 calendar year. Marcus joined the U.S. Army in September 2008 as a member of the U.S. military service after serving there for more than a year. He has been in the military for almost 14 years.
The brothers have now decided to go on The Amazing Race together. They are a force to be reckoned with because they are “both intelligent and muscular.” The brothers have already devised a plan to form alliances and are looking forward to their new adventure. Marcus says in the promo clip:
“I have been to a number of countries, and so has he. So it’s great that he’s here and that we can achieve this during our free time from the military. “I’m pumped up and ready to go.”
Regarding The Amazing Race 2022
The new season of The Amazing Race premieres on CBS on Wednesday. Season 34 will not feature non-elimination legs for the first time, despite an international starting grid. According to CBS, host Phil Keoghan will reveal a “game-changing feature” in the first half of the episode. This season, Keoghan has even stated that there would be no U-Turns. Keoghan told Parade in a statement:
“I’m not sure it’s been such an important substantive aspect over the years.” I mean, a lot of U-turns are just ignored. Many things are not used for one reason or another. That just wasn’t the point of returning this time. We had other things on our minds.”
