The North American Wife Carrying champions, Elliot and Giana Storey of Westbrook, took on Kelly Ripa and her co-host Joel McHale Friday morning through an inflatable obstacle course.

The Storeys did as well on the television obstacle course (which featured no mud) as they did on October 8 in Newry when they bested 43 other couples to win the national championship.

Their prize on TV was a large trophy. Their prize in the national championship was Giana Storey’s weight in beer (11 cases of Goose Island Oktoberfest) and $665 in cash.
