Reality-TV Couple Honeymoon in Aruba
September 20, 2012 at 2:37 PM
Reality-tv stars Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas, met while filming "Big Brother 12" in 2010, got engaged less than a year later, and returned to do "Big Brother 13", which Reilly won. The couple went on to appear in the latest season of "The Amazing Race".
Well, they recently married in Los Angeles, and decided to honeymoon away from the lights of LaLa Land. The location? The Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino. The stayed at the resort's adults-only Tradewinds Club. This a separate section of the hotel, with only 49 rooms that enjoy Club Level-type amenities and perks. The couple also camped out sipping cocktails in a private cabana at the hotel's new 18-and-over H2Oasis pool.
Now, we know quite a bit about the Caribbean, and agree Aruba was a good choice for this couple for a few reasons:
1.Aruba is outside the "hurricane belt", so year-round good weather is almost guaranteed, even at a time when other islands have to keep vigilant watch for stormy skies.
2.It's probably one of the easiest island’s to get to from most cities and has a good amount of airlift. They've even started adding direct flights from São Paulo, Brazil!
3.It has a lot of “American” comforts (which beginner travelers appreciate). They take US dollars, locals speak English (and three other languages!), so it’s an easy island all around.
And while we can't say we know much about this couple, we wish them well and hope their marriage lasts longer than a certain new television-series we think is going to fizzle out fast.
