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.

Star Wars Weekends Host Jay Laga’aia Officially Turns to the Dark Side

The 501st Legion reported earlier today that Star Wars actor-turned-Star Wars Weekends host Jay Laga’aia has officially joined the dark side and has enlisted as a stormtrooper (TK 6352 to be exact). In fact, Laga’aia even assumed a false identity during the application process to keep it a secret.

The 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion provide characters for the Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and its parade (all but Darth Vader I believe). No word on whether Laga’aia will be participating in the parade as a stormtrooper or himself, but I’d place most bets on the latter.
