Coal miner David Conley and his wife Mary won Americas hearts in the tenth season of the reality show, but both admit their kids werent as excited they got picked for All Stars because it meant they would have to leave them behind for the second time in less than a year,
Says Mary: Its hard to be away from them for so long it gets to be really difficult.
However, Mary and David admit there were so many perks from being on All Stars that they just couldnt pass up the opportunity.
One of their favorite perks? Having the entire family be special guests on Rosie ODonnells gay family cruise ship.
The couple says the family had a blast hanging out in the Caribbean even though they never got to thank ODonnell personally for the invitation.
As David puts it, We didnt get to meet Rosie because our flight was delayed. The kids were sad about that because they wanted to thank her in person for all that shes given us.
Amazing Race: All Stars airs Sundays on CBS.
