As part of our Season 10 premiere in 2015 — a show full of surprises — we extended the fun to our fans with a huge surprise for one very special couple.
Gabriel, from North Richland Hills, Texas, is married to Emily, the biggest Rachael Ray fan ever, who owns just about everything Rachael has ever released. And as it turns out, Rachael was integral in a turning point in their relationship!
Gabriel explains that about a month after they started dating, Emily asked him if she could cook him a special meal. It turned out to be Rachael's "You Won't Be Single for Long" pasta, which Emily had been waiting to cook for "The One." Gabriel says after that, he knew he had to marry her, and they even toasted Rachael at their wedding! Plus, the couple share Rach and her husband John's anniversary.
Watch to see Emily's speechless reaction to being whisked from a tour bus onto the set and meeting Rach herself!
