'Survivor: David vs. Goliath' live finale reunion special to reportedly feature a marriage proposal!

Survivor: David vs. Goliath is airing its finale on Wednesday night this week, and the live reunion show may reportedly feature an engagement!
According to Survivor production sources, the show's producers sent staffers working on the finale an email this weekend letting them know about some last-minute changes to the upcoming finale broadcast of Survivor: David vs. Goliath, TMZ reported.
The message reportedly told the staffers they needed to modify the finale's broadcast plans to allow time for a live marriage proposal.
Similar to prior Survivor seasons, the finale will be a three-hour event that will consist of about two hours of pre-taped footage from Fiji that ends with Survivor: David vs. Goliath's castaways casting their votes for the season's winner, and then a subsequent live portion in which the winner is revealed and the castaways reunite and discuss the season in front of a live studio audience.
The marriage proposal will reportedly take place during the live, in-studio segment hosted by Jeff Probst.
While it's unclear who is proposing, TMZ speculates there are two leading possibilities.
Survivor Season 37 castaway Nick Wilson -- who is currently in the Final 6 -- may propose to his longtime girlfriend, according to TMZ, or two castaways who allegedly found love after filming the show may get engaged.
Alec was reportedly previously banned from attending Survivor's live finale for knowingly breaking the show's non-disclosure agreement by posting a photo of Kara and himself on Instagram several months before David vs. Goliath's cast was even announced by CBS.
However, TMZ claims a proposal might be a "loophole" for the show to allow him to attend after all.
Alec had posted the since-deleted photo in May 2018 -- shortly after the cast returned from filming Survivor: David vs. Goliath in Fiji -- and captioned it with a defiant, "F-ck it."

While the show reportedly didn't attempt to enforce the non-disclosure agreement's $5 million penalty against Alec, the decision to revoke Alec's invitation to the reunion special did mean that he would not receive the $10,000 appearance fee each cast member receives.
If Alec and Kara do get engaged onSurvivor's finale, it will be unexpected.
Late last month, Alec brushed aside a question about viewers' speculation that the pair may be dating during an interview with Reality TV World following his ouster fromSurvivor: David vs. Goliath.
"I don't know where they got that from," Alec replied, before Reality TV World called attention to social media photo.
When asked about the current status of his relationship with Kara, Alec continued, "I'm friends with everyone in the cast, [Davie Rickenbacker] and [Carl Boudreaux] -- I think I've seen almost every person... I'm friends with everyone." About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
