Survivor’s Joe Anglim and Sierra Dawn Thomas got engaged during a romantic road trip. The couple met on the Worlds Apart season 30, but it was not love at first sight. It took Joe and his No Collar alliance a while to earn Sierra’s trust. Plus, she had a hand in sending him home, voting against him at Tribal Council. Sierra cost Joe the one-million dollar prize in Survivor season 30, but he seems to be over it now.
It wasn’t until last year that the two started dating and fell in love. So it’s another successful love story for CBS reality shows – the show’s odds outdo The Bachelor by far…
