Cheyne Whitney and Meghan Rickey, contestants in TV show ‘Amazing Race,’ just got engaged. The couple won the 15th season of the show last season, Whitney, who is 23, proposed to his 24-year-old girlfriend, Meghan, in San Diego over the weekend according to PEOPLE magazine.

Cheyne says, “Other than ‘what are you going to do with the $1 million,’ the question that comes up the most is, ‘when are you guys going to get married?’ And I’ve been planning this since the ‘Race’ ended, so I’ve been like, ‘I’m working on it! I’m working on it!’” Whitney had the help of Brides magazine when he popped the question to his new bride, after he faked a proposal to Rickey on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.’ He continued with, “Brides magazine thought that I really did propose, so they emailed us the day later and asked if Meghan would like to pose for a wedding dress? I kind of intervened and said, ‘Hey, would you like to work on the proposal? I have some ideas!’ And they were super-helpful. I really did plan it since Dec. 10. For two-and-a-half months I have been planning this day!”

This weekend in San Diego, Meghan opened the magazine to find a full page advertisement asking her to marry him. She describes it, “He told me he had some rings to show me in the magazine and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s kind of weird,’ and he opened up the page and I saw my name first at the top and was like, ‘What the heck?’ And saw our picture at the bottom, and I just read it and I could not believe it,” Adding, “I felt like I won ‘The Amazing Race!”
Entertainment Tonight got the moment on film, although Rickey didn’t realize he had done all that work to make it happen. There is currently no set date.

TMZ has reported that the couple who got in a fight with Ronnie and Sammi on one episode of MTV’s hit show, “Jersey Shore,” claim that the footage was edited in order to “cover up” what actually happened. The couple, Joshua Thomas and Kristin Perrenod, filed a lawsuit today in New Jersey Superior Court, claiming that the MTV reality show’s producers edited the boardwalk scuffle “in a manner that was completely inconsistent with what really took place.”

They also claim to have the raw, unedited footage of that night’s events leading up to the fight. There is supposedly a DVD that contains the footage from the fateful night, that didn’t air on the final version of the episode, which shows Sammi and Ronnie antagonizing the couple and yelling out homophobic slurs among other insults before things turned violent. Josh and Kristin are also pissed off at MTV for having them sign a release form when they were “clearly intoxicated,” therefore the waivers shouldn’t be valid. They are suing MTV, 459 Productions, Viacom, and Ronnie, among others for an unspecified amount of money.

Reports from TMZ have confirmed that Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, has a secret passion for indoor soccer. The NFL star actually plays in an adult recreational 6-on-6 soccer league in Texas. Romo could be making his football team and fans a little worried by risking injury, not to mention, his $67 million contract.

Nonetheless, Romo still participates in the league that even requires players to sign an injury waiver. Footage from Tony’s most recent game was found, and by the looks of it he’s not too bad — he even manages to score a goal. As far as concerns with him and the Cowboys team, a rep for the team told TMZ, “He’s been playing in off-season basketball and soccer leagues in the area since he became an NFL player, so it must not be something that is in his contract.”
