‘Amazing Race’ Duo Chad Waltrip and Stephanie Smith Get Married
“Amazing Race” contestants Chad Waltrip and Stephanie Smith got engaged on camera, and now months after their elimination have revealed they’ve already tied the knot.
“We were going to get married in March, but we didn’t see the point in waiting because I’m three months pregnant and due in June,” Stephanie tells People.com. “In fact we’re driving back from Ponte Vedra Beach, where we had a small wedding at a friend’s house.”
Stephanie, who dated Chad for five months before embarking on the show, says she was surprised by his proposal in Oman.
“We had talked about marriage. We knew immediately after meeting that we wanted to be together forever. But I didn’t think he’d have the guts to propose on “The Race,” she says. “I love our story. I don’t know anyone who can say, ‘We got engaged on a reality TV show in the Middle East.’”
