Before Amber Brkich claimed her $1 million prize on 'Survivor All Stars,' fellow contestant Rob Mariano proposed to her, which led viewers to cry foul, claiming that the couple had plotted their coalition in order to boot everyone else off the show and split the winnings.
The two, who eventually married, then went to compete on CBS's 'The Amazing Race,' where their previous fame came into play, helping them get through many obstacles, and once again making the viewer feel that they were using an unfair advantage to win another million from more deserving contestants. Fellow 'Amazing Race' contestant, Lynn Warren said, 'They're kind of like an STD. You've got to protect yourself from them,' about the duo. The couple had to settle for second place on the show.( Photo / CBS)
