American Idol has always had its fair share of surprises; surprising eliminations, surprise celebrity guests, and surprise…proposals? That’s right, two former Idol contestants, Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo, shared their love with the world when Young got down on one knee on Wednesday nights season finale. But to make this happen, he needed help from the show that made him famous on its fifth season. Young told People“I called [producer] Nigel [Lythgoe] directly last week and said, ‘I want to do this. I’m going to do this. Is there any way I could do it at the show?’” A teary-eyed DeGarmo said “yes,” and the long-time couple is now engaged.

What are some over-the-top proposal ideas?

Cupid’s Advice:

For some, the idea of ‘go big or go home’ resonates well with proposals. A proposal should be momentous and representative of the love a couple shares, so here are some ideas to get that message across loud and clear:

1.  Adrenaline rush proposal: It is said that the effects of attraction and love are linked to neurochemicals very similar to adrenaline. So, why not proclaim your love during an adrenaline rush? Propose in the air while sky diving, or go race car driving with your partner and scream the question out loud. Just make sure that your blood is pumping and heart is thumping.

2. Flash mob proposal: Go one step further than Justin Timberlake did in his movie Friends with Benefits and actually use the flash mob to propose. Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than hundreds of people dancing in sync to your favorite song in a public place. It’s a story you’ll be able to tell over and over.

3. Write it out: It’s not as easy as it sounds. Write it in the skyline or take a helicopter ride where the words ‘Will you marry me?’ can be seen below. It might cost you a pretty penny, but it will be unforgettable.
