Eight Memorable On Air Reality TV Marriage Proposals
On Wednesday night during the Big Brother finale, winner Benjamin Norris proposed to his boyfriend Ben, not only was it the first gay Big Brother winner, it could be the first same sex proposal on a reality show on TV here in Australia and overseas.
However it is not the first marriage proposal on a reality TV show. Marriage proposals on TV are always a little cheesy but they always are enjoyable to watch.
Here are a eight other memorable marriage proposal moments:
1. Josh Proposing To Jenner On The Block:
On auction day on The Block in 2011, Josh got down on his bended knee Tiffany box in hand and proposed to his long time partner Jenna. The Block favourites did not end up winning at the auction but they did win each other. They are now married. Go to their cast mate Katrina’s blog to see some great pictures of the wedding.
2. Trevor Proposing to His Girlfriend At The Big Brother Finale on Series Four.
After winning $1 million on the show he dropped to one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Breea she of course accepted. They went on to marry and have two children.
3. Boston Rob proposing to Amber at Survivor finale.
Amber and Boston Rob hooked up in an Survivor All Stars series and both made it to the final two. At the finale before the winner was announced he proposed to Amber and she accepted. Lucky for him as she was the one who won the $1 million. They went onto to more reality shows, including their wedding, and have children together. Boston Rob finally won on Survivor after his fourth time on the show. It should be noted because of this hook up Survivor contestants are quick to bust up any potential relationships at camp.
4. Ben Flajnik was turned down by The Bachelorette’s Ashley.
A truly cringeworthy TV moment. Ben Flajnik who was a contestant on The Bachelorette proposed to Ashley and she turned him down. Happily this public humiliation did not stop him from becoming The Bachelor. Go to 3.00 minute mark to see the proposal.
5. The Bachelor Ben Flajnik proposes to Courtney
Ben Flajnik had better luck when he was The Bachelor he proposed to his girl Courtney and she accepted, however it was no surprise to fans of the show that they ended up breaking up and yes she had to return her $80,000 ring. (Source: Huffington Post)
6. David Murphy Proposes To Former Survivor contestant Carolina.
This proposal could only be classified as awkward. Survivor contestant David proposed to his girlfriend, Carolina who had been on a previous season of the show and she did not look happy about it and said she had been “blindsided” in the end she said yes. Examiner outlines how the proposal went down. I can’t seem to find out if they ended up walking down the aisle.
7. American Idol’s Ace Young proposes to Diana De Garmo on American Idol
On the 2012 American Idol season finale series four American Idol contestant Ace Young proposed to season three contestant Diana De Garmo. This was the first American Idol engagement. What was interesting was apparently some of the audience had no idea who they were.
8. Kris Humphries Proposes To Kim Kardashian
In what was probably not such a spontaneous proposal was Kris Humphries proposal to Kim Kardashian on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. However the news went international, as did the television event that was their wedding. However the wedding had barely aired and the marriage was over. He now maintains the engagement was planned.
