Rob and Amber married on Saturday.
Survivor All-Stars and Amazing Race 7 couple Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich were officially married on Saturday, according to a report reality blurred received. This confirms a report last week from the Beaver County Times that they were to be married Saturday at an allegedly secret ceremony in the Bahamas. The correspondent writes that “an elaborate wedding” took place on Atlantis “at sunset on the beach with a lavish poolside reception for about 200. There were shell arches made for the bride to walk through, and … the groom and his men were all in casual wear, no ties. The cake was decorated in shells, as were the tables.” Atlantis, by the way, is the resort that Rob and Amber coincidentally won a trip to during the second leg of The Amazing Race. (This will certainly fuel the conspiracy theories; since CBS is airing the wedding, perhaps they gave them the trip just to save money!) amber-brkich.com says that the wedding will air May 24 on CBS from 9 to 11 p.m., which is also the same evening the final American Idol 4 contestants will perform for the last time, all of which explains why that’s also the time the apocalypse is scheduled to begin.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
