That underground sword fight in Chile‘s making some of the miners rush to the alter. We’re not judging.
Five of Chile’s 33 rescued miners are to have church weddings after surviving for more than two months trapped underground.
On bended knee, the miners proposed to their girlfriends — and wives — at a party in the seaside town of Caldera in far northern Chile late on Tuesday.
It was the group’s first public reunion since their dramatic rescue last week after 69 days below ground.
“After these 10 years we’ve spent together, now it’s time for us to get married,” miner Claudio Yanez told his girlfriend, Cristina Nunez, during the gathering, which was held in a converted railway station.
After 10 years, she had to sleep in a tent in the desert for two months for you to put a ring on it? We might’ve left.
One of the miners isn’t letting this little ordeal change his player ways. Not only is Yonni “Two Time” Barrios thinking about keeping both his estranged wife and mistress around for some dough, his bottom b*tch popped up on a radio show in Columbia last week joking about his second sidepiece.
Barrios…became the butt of jokes among the miners because he had more than one woman in his life: an estranged wife and a girlfriend with whom he has lived for more than a decade, along with her children.
At one point during the ordeal, both women appeared near the mouth of the mine, apparently to claim some of the money they thought would be paid out after the accident.
Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported that Barrios romanced a third woman, citing an interview with Barrios’s girlfriend, Susana Valenzuela, on Colombian radio.
She told the station that she had to stop the third woman, 25, from visiting the hospital where Barrios stayed after his rescue.
“He is my Yonni Barrios — mine and no one else’s,” Valenzuela said, according to the report.
Barrios’s complicated love life might even earn him a paycheck, with Fox News reporting that an online dating service for people seeking to have an extramarital affair — AshleyMadison.com — offered Barrios $100,000 to be the site’s Spanish-language spokesman.
The Fox report said a stipulation of the contract is that Barrios stays married to his wife — but Valenzuela hasn’t seemed to bat an eye at his marital status.
Valenzuela has taken to calling him Tarzan, regarding him as courageous and valiant, a man who has survived extraordinary odds.
“How great that my Tarzan is returning home, I am waiting for him in a thong,” reads a sign taped the fence in front of his house.
G’on and brush your shoulders off Yonni.
