ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ and the Big Screen’s ‘The Proposal’ Team up for ‘Marry Me Monday!’
Don’t forget to check out Stitch Kingdom’s review of The Proposal starring Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.
If you’re ready to tie the knot, then you could have the chance to propose to your partner during primetime! That’s right — pop the question on national TV! We’re looking for the ideal proposal which may be aired during a break in an episode of “The Bachelorette.” In the upcoming summer comedy, “The Proposal” (opening June 19), Sandra Bullock’s character takes the hand of her assistant (Ryan Reynolds) and drops to her knees-in the middle of a busy New York City sidewalk-to pop the question. Likewise, the proposal we’re looking for should be creative and original, expressing one’s own individual style.
Submissions for this unique experience can be made by potential newlyweds by visiting ABC.com and going to “The Bachelorette” site — beginning on MONDAY, MAY 18 through THURSDAY MAY 28 — and answering some questions about their relationships and why they want to propose on national television. Your proposal could be chosen to air during the MONDAY, JUNE 15 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET) airing of “The Bachelorette” on the ABC Television Network. See ABC.com for full details including terms and conditions.
About “The Proposal”
When high-powered book editor Margaret (Sandra Bullock) faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she’s actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant, Andrew (Ryan Reynolds), whom she’s tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. The unlikely couple head to Alaska to meet Andrew’s quirky family (Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson, Betty White), and the always-in-control city girl finds herself in one hilarious fish-out-of-water situation after another. With an impromptu wedding in the works and an immigration official on their tail, Margaret and Andrew reluctantly vow to stick to the plan despite the precarious consequences.
