Amazing Race 6’s Hayden and Aaron get married; were engaged on the mat

Hayden and Aaron, a team on The Amazing Race 6, got married over the weekend. Jon and Kris, who came in second that season, attended the ceremony, and fellow racer “Kristy Jensen [was] a bridesmaid,” according to the Spokesman Review.

Aaron proposed to Hayden on the mat during the sixth season finale, shortly after Hayden had a meltdown and quit in the middle of a challenge; the four-hour penalty they received as a result led them to be eliminated.

As to their appearance on the show, Hayden tells the paper, “I’m really glad we did it.” And Aaron says that in the future, he “would definitely do ‘Survivor.’ But that’s about it.”
