The last time they teamed up on TV, only one took home a $1 million paycheck. This time around, however, reality TV love couple Amber Brkich and Rob Mariano are hoping to hit paydirt together.
Brkich and Mariano — the winner and runner-up respectively on last year’s Survivor: All-Stars — are among the teams slated to compete on The Amazing Race 7, which will premiere March 1 on CBS. ”They’re a very strong team, very competitive,” Amazing Race executive producer Bertram van Munster told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
”Am-buh” and ”Boston Rob,” who fell for each other while systematically picking off a salty cast of Survivor veterans during the show’s all-star run — and got engaged on live TV during the season finale — are apparently comfortable enough in front of the camera that they also plan to televise their nuptials later this year.
Survivor executive producer Mark Burnett told the Post-Gazette that he’s ”working on” the couple’s wedding, and indicated that CBS will air the ceremony as a May sweeps special or possibly a summer series.
