Lynn, Alex’s wedding will be broadcast.
Another Amazing Race 7 couple is going to get married and have their nuptials broadcast and paid for by the broadcaster. Lynn Warren and Alex Ali will have their wedding broadcast live by Ottawa, Canada, radio station The New Hot 89.9. The radio station says in a release that it “will become the first station in the world to broadcast live–a wedding for a gay couple.” One of The Morning HOT Tub show’s hosts, Mauler, says, “Since current laws do not allow the union of gay couples in California, we are ecstatic that they have agreed to come to Ottawa to share with us this once in a lifetime experience.” The wedding will be broadcast live on June 1; Lynn and Alex will also get “a bachelor party, their wedding rehearsal and tour around Canada’s beautiful capital city.”
