February 16, 2015 This just about permanent A list mostly television actress from several long running network and cable shows walked in on her celebrity boyfriend.What was supposed to be a surprise at his place turned into a horrible surprise when she saw him in bed with another woman.
Mariano was born in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, and raised in Canton, Massachusetts.
He attended Xaverian Brothers High School, where he played golf, softball, and hockey.
In 1999, Mariano graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Boston University and began serving as the head coach of their inline hockey team.
During Survivor: Marquesas, Mariano fronted a highly successful opening alliance in his initial Maraamu tribe.
A tribal swap in the fourth episode effectively denied him the control he enjoyed in his old tribe, as he was switched to the "new" Rotu tribe in which he was outnumbered by former Rotu members 5–3.
Ultimately he was the first person voted out of the game when the tribes merged in the seventh episode.His original Maraamu tribe was outnumbered by members of the original Rotu tribe 7–3.Since the Rotu tribe thought that Mariano caused too much drama in camp and that he was the biggest threat of the remaining Maraamu tribe members (the others being Vecepia Towery and Sean Rector), he was the first Maraamu tribe member targeted.In an attempt to save himself, Mariano had tried to warn Rotu tribe members Pascal English, Neleh Dannis, and Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien about the Rotu Four alliance of John Carroll, Tammy Leitner, Zoe Zanidakis, and Robert De Canio, but was unsuccessful (although he successfully planted seeds of suspicion that would lead to the remaining Rotu members and all the Maraamu members teaming up to turn on the Rotu Four the following Tribal Council).Prior to his elimination, he provided useful information to Vavrick-O'Brien about possible betrayal by former members of Rotu who were not switched during the tribal switch.During Survivor: All-Stars, Mariano developed an early alliance which eventually developed into a romantic relationship with fellow contestant Amber Brkich.
