According to the website The Stir Jessa Duggar’s intended Ben Seewald set up a ‘special’ proposal day, filmed for inclusion in this season’s TLC show “19 Kids & Counting”. Does this not smack of ratings desperation to anyone else?
The day of the actual proposal began with a plane ride piloted by Jessa’s brother John-David Duggar, from their hometown of Springdale, Arkansas, to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. JingerDuggar accompanied Jessa as a chaperone, because of course.
According to the family’s blog:
Throughout the day, Jessa had to get a hole-in-one at a miniature golf course, collect a dozen roses from strangers in a park, take a trolley tour while filling out a quiz, and ride in a train with other members of her family. The final clue led her to Thorncrown Chapel.
Jessa said when she got there, “I walked in, and he was standing there at the front … I could barely talk. I knew he was going to propose. I cried.”
That’s when Ben got on bended knee and asked Jessa to be his wife with a .75-carat princess-cut diamond engagement ring.
She said yes.
Princess cut? Interesting. Could that be because they don’t cost as much as a regular brilliant round cut diamond?
