1. He Finally Put A Ring On It!
March 20 is National Proposal Day and what better way to celebrate it then looking back on our favorite proposals on TV! From Trevor’s hilariously tragic proposal to Hilary on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” to Jamie Foxx’s love song to Fancy, we rounded up our 6 faves. Someone, please pass the Kleenex!
2. A Different World
Arguably one of the best Black sitcom proposals in life, Dwayne and Whitley’s proposal couldn’t have come at a more awkward moment: Whitley getting married to another man. The proposal could’ve gone wrong for Dwayne if she said no.
3. The Jamie Foxx Show
Jamie and Fancy was flirting and joking with each other for years on “The Jamie Foxx Show,” but when it was time for Jamie to propose, the funny man made us tear up.
4. The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air
Although this proposal had a tragic ending, we know Trevor’s intentions were genuine. I mean, like, who proposes with a bun-jee jump?!
When Q tries to convince Moesha to drop out of college and live with him in Tokyo for his rap career (**chuckle**), Q gives her an option that’s difficult to refuse.
6. Boy Meets World
Just admit that you waited every week for a new “Boy Meets World” episode like us. We knew the proposal was eventually going to happen, but Topanga proposing to Corey –at high school graduation, no less — was a surprise, especially in the ’90s.
What happens when you mix Brian McKnight with one of the funniest men on TV in the ’90s? Absolute magic.
8. Keeping Up With The Kardashians
No matter what we think about the hype surrounding Kanye and Kim’s relationship, we can all agree that Kanye’s televised proposal was one only he could get away with. Complete with fireworks and a full orchestra, this proposal only solidifies the couple’s extravagant lifestyle for better OR worse.
