One of reality television’s favorite couples started off their night by making a surprise visit at Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, where guest Steve Douglas and his wife, Ashleigh, were celebrating her 30th birthday with a group of nearly 20 friends in the restaurant’s private dining room. Knowing that his wife is one of Gretchen’s biggest fans, Steve had invited Gretchen and Slade to surprise Ashleigh for her birthday. At the beginning of the dinner, Slade donned a chef’s coat and pretended to be a waiter, pouring water for the group. Then he announced that he had a surprise for Ashleigh and brought Gretchen out to wish her a happy birthday. The couple stayed and enjoyed dinner with Steve, Ashleigh and their friends.

After dinner, Gretchen, Slade and the group headed over to The LINQ, the Strip’s all-new outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment district, where they rode the new, 550-foot-tall Las Vegas High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. After grabbing drinks at the Sky Lounge in the High Roller Wheel House, the group boarded one of the High Roller’s 28 glass-enclosed cabins, where they enjoyed unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip.
