Two More Survivor Contestants Tie the Knot

Just in case you're keeping track, when it comes to creating solid love connections, the score is Survivor: 4, The Bachelor: 1. Despite the fact that there are dozens of reality shows geared towards making a match, all of them (all of them!) have been proven to fail. (Unless of course you count the one Bachelorette marriage which I'm considering just a fluke). Ironically the reality show most successful in offering love is the one in which contestants do not shower or brush their teeth, poo in a giant hole in the dirt, plot against each other and eat roaches for their protein. So far Survivor has resulted in a number of successful relationships including Ethan Zohn & Jenna Morasca, Ozzy Lusth and Amanda Kimmel the marriage of Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich and now Jaime Dugan and Erik Huffman. Dugan (aka the girl that confidently played the fake idol) and Huffman (aka the virgin) first met on Survivor: China married Saturday evening in Charleston, S.C., in front of 150 family and friends, including other reality cast members. "She took your breath away, she was so beautiful," says a guest following the 30-minute ceremony. "There was an ocean breeze over the wedding. It was a very romantic wedding." The bride wore an Ulla-Maija Couture dress. She had 15 fittings at Charleston's Maddison Row to make sure the dress was just right. Dugan's bridesmaids were Marisa Axelrod and Brooke Jackson from last season's Amazing Race. The pair, who grew up just 25 miles apart before meeting across the world in China, won an $80,000 dream wedding courtesy of the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. An Asian and tropical-themed reception, inspired by their time in China, immediately followed. Guests dined on an Asian buffet as well as a low-country menu, which featured shrimp and grits and mac and cheese with lobster.
Actually, after a little thinking, I suppose it does make sense that Survivor is THE place to go to hook up. After all, living in your own filth and starving while you manipulate other people is far more realisitc a situation than living in a mansion chugging Grey Goose with a bunch of strippers whose sole purpose is to find fame and a sugar daddy. At least on Survivor they work for their own money. Besides, if someone can love you at your dirtiest and most coniving, than they can probably love you out in the real world. So congrats to the Survivor couple! The were adorbale on the show and I'm sure they will be very happy together. And just in case you need reminding of what they looked like on the show, here tis:
