Great TV Engagements: A Real Proposal During "Veronica Mars"

Great TV Engagements: A Real Proposal During "Veronica Mars"

Every day this week, in honor of Engagement Week on the Sugar Network, I've been featuring my favorite TV engagements, for better or for worse. For my last installment, I have a special, uh, treat: a real-life proposal that aired in February during one woman's favorite show, "Veronica Mars."

Originally, this guy Rand Fishkin wanted to buy time during the Super Bowl, when gazillions of Americans could share in his not-so-intimate moment. He campaigned to earn the money on his website, MySuperProposal.com, touting it as "the most public declaration of love in the history of mankind." It kind of seems like he's more into the "public declaration" than the "love" part, but it's still cute ... I guess? Anyway, he couldn't raise enough money for the Super Bowl to honor his Tom Cruise-ishly public affection, so instead he popped the question to his beloved Geraldine DeRuiter during "Veronica Mars."

I think the whole thing is sort of sweet but also a little gross and attention-grabby, so tell me what you think. You can see Rand's proposal and Geraldine's long, awkward-to-watch reaction when you

I hate public proposals. You have to be pretty confident that the girl is going to say "yes." I mean, it's in public. She doesn't want to hurt your feelings if she really wants to say "no." I think proposals should be an intimate thing between the two people and done in a romantic and creative way. None of this "let's let perfect strangers in on it" business.
