CBS wedded to reality

'Survivor' stars tie the knot on the air

Reality TV stars Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich refuse to give up their 15 minutes, prolonging their stay in front of the cameras via the special “Rob and Amber Get Married.”

As willing accomplice to the couple’s overexposure, CBS will air the two-hour event Tuesday, May 24, at 9 p.m.

“Rob and Amber Get Married” will run in the slot of “The Amazing Race” two weeks after the reality skein’s seventh season finale.

Special will include the events leading up to and including the Mariano-Brkich wedding. The nups were held last weekend at Atlantis, Paradise Island, in the Bahamas. Famed event planner Colin Cowie, who designed the wedding, will also appear.

Mariano and Brkich first met on the “Survivor: All-Stars” edition; the couple wound up as the show’s two finalists. Mariano proposed to Brkich during the show’s live finale, in which Brkich won the $1 million prize. The pair returned to realitydom as contestants on “The Amazing Race 7.”
