Marriage Proposals On Reality TV

This week on national TV on The Block, Brenton proposed to his long term girlfriend Chez. Yes I know why would you do it and you would think this would be uncommon but in reality TV land this is not a one off.

I am not sure why it happens, maybe it is to ensure the woman cannot turn them down or maybe they see it as a romantic gesture their kids will be able to watch.

Other notable proposals include:

  • Chad proposing to Stephanie on The Amazing Race this week, that she was so excited by it made me question her sanity;
  • Nathan from Farmer Wants A Wife proposed to Amander Ecker on the final episode of the season;
  • Boston Rob proposed to Amber in the reunion episode of Survivor just before she won $1 million;
  • New York proposed to Tailor Made on the finale on I Love New York 2 (and no I have not seen that show);
  • Adrienne Knight (from ANTM) and Christopher Knight (the Brady Bunch) got engaged on My Fair Brady;
  • Peter proposed to Cynthia on the Real Housewives of Atlanta;
  • Jake Palvelka gave a marriage proposal with a red rose Vienna Giradi on The Bachelor.

I am sure I have missed some notable ones like Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, but since I don’t watch The Hills was his proposal on TV?

I was thinking the same thing, that it’s cool this week to propose on tv… How about let me try and remember their names….. Trevor the winner of Big Brother one year proposing to his girlfriend Bree?? I’m sure there are way more memorable and exciting ones than that though!
