    Rob and Amber Tie the Knot

    They survived Survivor and are doing amazingly well on The Amazing Race. So what's next for Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich--Newlyweds?

    The reality twosome fondly known as "Romber" tied the knot Saturday at the Atlantis resort at Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

    As would only be fitting for a couple whose courtship and subsequent engagement played out on television, CBS was along for the wedding ceremony as well, filming for a two-hour special that will air on May 24.

    In addition to a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the nuptials, the show, titled Rob and Amber Get Married, will also feature clips from Brkich's bridal shower and the couple's bachelor and bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinner and various surprises the couple planned for each other.

    (We're just hoping they managed to keep the cameras out of the honeymoon suite.)

    According to Brkich's hometown newspaper, the Beaver County Times, the bridesmaids wore teal for the ceremony. In a prior interview with CBS, Brkich said she wanted the groomsmen to dress in summery, white linen.

    Celebrity wedding planner Colin Cowie helped the duo pull together a celebration fit for the reality-crazed viewing population of America.

    Brkich and Mariano met when both former Survivor contestants (Australian Outback and Marquesas, respectively) returned to compete on Survivors: All-Stars.

    In the show's live finale, Brkich was declared the winner of the $1 million prize and scored herself a fiancé to boot after Mariano dropped to his knees and proposed.

    The couple have since gone on to compete on The Amazing Race, where their aggressive game-play tactics have landed them in the lead, but won them few friends among fellow contestants.

    Of course, Brkich and Mariano aren't the first reality-conceived couple to make it to the altar. That honor went to Bachelorette-forged couple Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, who wed in December 2003 in a million-dollar extravaganza televised by ABC.
