Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca have been through a lot in the eight years they've been together, including his battle against Hodgkin's disease and the death of her mother to cancer.
Now the Survivor champs (he's the winner of Survivor: Africa and she won in the Amazon) just want to escape from the day-to-day – and possibly take the next step in their relationship.
Zohn, 37, and Morasca, 30, will compete against 10 other teams on the fall season of The Amazing Race, which premieres Sept. 25 on CBS, and it just might be right time for the couple to become engaged.
"He says that if he feels so moved on the Race that it's possible," Morasca says of a proposal. "It is definitely something that we think about!"
