Bronx man competes on 'The Amazing Race'

A Bronx man is set to appear on the latest season of the long-running CBS series "The Amazing Race."



Shamir Arzeno grew up on 207th Street in Norwood. He credits his mother with instilling him with a drive to believe that anything is possible.



That drive led him to a career in investment banking, and then becoming a contest on the reality competition series.



Arzeno embarked on a journey across the world with 21 other people, competing to win $1 million.



The series' 29th season begins Thursday, March 30.
