Girl meets boy. Girl falls in love. Girl gets engaged.
Add 24 more men, eight weeks of world travel and a boat load of roses, and you’ve got yourself a season of “The Bachelorette.” Over the years we’ve seen the tears and tantrums all culminate in one over-the-top engagement in an exotic locale.
"Who proposes like that?" we always ask. You would propose like that too if ABC were footing the bill.
Here, we break down the top five proposal locations featured on the show and how you too can have a made-for-TV “Will you marry me?”
The South Pacific country is home to a massive archipelago with a variety of unique high- and low-end accommodation options. J.P Rosenbaum proposed to Ashley Hebert in Season 7 at the privately owned island, Vomo Island Resort, which features 28 villas, two private residences, a luxurious spa, 5-star cuisine and a beach you can swim in from your doorstep. Rates start at a whopping $1,850 a night. If you prefer partying to pampering (or want to spend a little less), the Ratu Kini Backpackers and Dive Resort offers dorm-style lodging for $32 per person per night where you can mingle with fellow travelers at beach bonfires. Regardless of budget, scuba diving is a must here in the “Soft Coral Capital of the World.”
Once home to the British colonial naval station “Nelson’s Dockyard,” the West Indies island of Antigua is perfect for exploring rare artifacts like an 18th-century Navy graveyard…..and getting engaged. Desiree Hartsock said “yes” to Chris Siegfried on Season 9 at an age-old fort before heading back to a more modern hotel, the Verandah Resort & Spa. For $490 a night (all-inclusive), you can shack up in one of their oceanfront suites near the famous Devil’s Bridge National Park. Skip the private villas without sacrificing the views at the Catamaran Hotel, located smack dab on one of the southern coast beaches. Starting from $160 a night you get a studio-like apartment, daily cleaning and freshly caught fish from the nearby harbor.
