Amazing Race Winners Marry in Show-Themed Wedding
Amazing Race season 15 winners Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney tied the knot Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. The couple, who won $1 million from the reality show competition, even had an Amazing Race themed wedding.
A Hard Rock hotel rep told Us Weekly that the wedding party included six co-contestants from the Amazing Race: Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho (Professional female poker players), Sam and Dan McMillen (brothers who finished in second place) and recently divorced Brian Kleinschmidt and Ericka Dunlap (former Miss America and her husband who finished in third place).
Rickey and Whitney, both 24, exchanged platinum and diamond ArtCarved wedding bands. Over 200 guests joined them in a ceremony and feasted on chicken, truffle white cheddar mac-n-cheese and seasonal veggies.
Rickey, an account executive, and Whitney, a brand manager, met while playing a game of tetherball back in elementary school. After being crowned the winners, Whitney said: "The whole experience in itself was life-changing, and the money is not even as important as what we got to do together. It was the perfect race. It could not have been any better."
