Red Team


Erika Cook


Hang Glide


Finale (E4)

Franke considers superheroes to be his role models because “they do the right thing.” He always does the right thing, no matter the cost, and doesn’t want to hurt people to get ahead or win. As he says, “What good is winning if you made enemies?” Franke is into model kits based on popular anime series and has been collecting action figures since he was 6 years old! He’s not really into sports, but he does like to play volleyball. Franke is confident he’s got the three key things needed to win Endurance: brains, looks and personality!
