They were chosen by the 14 previously eliminated contestants as the winners over Michelle Money and Graham Bunn.

But before they could take home they prize, they both had to choose whether the "share" or "keep" the winnings. If they both chose share, they split the money; if they both chose keep, the money would be divvied up among their fellow contestants. If they chose different answers, the person who chose keep would get to keep all the money.

In a surprise to viewers -- and Stagliano -- Durst announced their engagement during the live finale Monday, hosted by Chris Harrison.
