Our next team is father and daughter –  Hoskote Venkatesh and Naina Venkatesh from California.

Hoskote and Naina (TAR 23)

She is a fitness instructor, he is an ER physician – the 3rd ER physician on this cast! And it seems he is also suffering from that malady that disproportionately affects physicians – it is called “holier-than-thou“.

Naina seems to suffer from a different malady – urgency to prove something. I still didn’t get what she is going to prove and to whom, and I doubt that the world really cares. But if the process of “proving” is entertaining – well, then go ahead – keep proving!

I can’t help but feel this team is slated to be the next “Ron and Christina” team (father and daughter Ron and Christina Hsu from TAR 12 and TAR 18). Both teams have foreign-born fathers and American-bred daughters, both fathers seem controlling, both daughters try to assert their independence.

Actually, I thought that Ron (from Ron and Christina team) was hilarious!  Annoying – yes, but entertaining nevertheless. So if Hoskote turns out to be even half as entertaining as Ron – we’ll enjoy watching this team.
