Survivors Amber and Rob to try ''Amazing Race''
''Survivor'''s Amber and Rob confirmed for ''Amazing Race 7.'' CBS plans to air the couple's wedding later this year, too.
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.
