Yes, this is a thing! Jerome Roehm and his wife Olivia Roehm are The North American Wife Carrying Champions and they are from our backyard right in Newark, DE. We saw their story and just had to have them on the show.
The Roehms aka Team Lovebrids won Olivia’s weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. The couple won 144 16-ounce bottles of beer and $570.
The couple will be entered to compete in the World Wife Carrying Championship in Finland for 2021.
