The amazing race (to the altar, that is) has officially begun for Westchester hairstylists Matt Cucolo and Ashley Gordon. The Scarsdale couple, who are teammates on the new season of ‘The Amazing Race,’ got engaged on a mountaintop in Thailand at the end of Friday night’s episode.
Cucolo, a master stylist at Richard Scott Salon in Mount Kisco, dropped to one knee and popped the question to Gordon, his girlfriend of three years, after advancing to the next round of the reality TV race around the world.
“I want to promise that every morning before I leave to work, I tell you I love you,” Cucolo, 30, said. “I want to promise that every night before I go to sleep, I give you a kiss good night. You’ve gotta promise me that you’ll make me the happiest man in the world.”
Gordon, 28, accepted a sparking diamond ring while the other teams cheered.
Now that the local lovebirds are engaged, the show’s $1 million grand prize could help them pay for a gorgeous Westchester wedding. We’ll find out if Cucolo and Gordon were the big winners as the season unfolds on Friday nights at 8 p.m. on CBS.
