Rachel and Brendon married, and of course TV cameras captured their ridiculous wedding

Big Brother and Amazing Race couple Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas were finally married this weekend by fellow annoying Big Brother cast member Matt Hoffman. Though that might have been a sign that they were going to live happily ever after somewhere far, far away, they were, of course, filmed and their wedding will be on TV.

Rachel has already abandoned her identity and become “the new Mrs. Villegas.” Rachel tweeted her appreciation to her friends, family, WEtv, and its My Fair Wedding star David Tutera.

Yes, their wedding will be televised. Tutera, who is as annoying as Rachel and Brendon, told People, “She wanted to arrive like a big celebrity. The guests will watch her arrive on live camera before she walks down the aisle, which to me is one of the most over the top processionals ever.”

He also said that Rachel “wanted to have something that made her feel like she was in the sky” so they were married at the top of a building in downtown Los Angeles, and Rachel arrived by helicopter. (No reports say whether Molly Shephard was a guest.)

The episode of My Fair Wedding: Unveiled will air Dec. 15, and may be impossible not to watch, considering that People says the two “were lowered in to the all-glass reception room using skills they learned while taking circus classes.” Of course they were.

Time to bring on the three children and call TLC.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

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.
