Covering everything you've ever loved (public proposals, The Bachelor, Chris Harrison and the 'Gram) in one fell swoop, a man proposed to his girlfriend via Bachelor host Chris Harrison's Instagram account today – and SHE SAID YES.
Via a blurb below a photo of Scotty holding a sign that reads "Will you marry me?", it appears that Harrison helped move things along, just like he does on the show:
Or did he? At least one commenter who claims to be friends with the couple alleges that Scotty actually proposed in Central Park and not on social media ("THATS MY BEST FRIEND!" he writes. "I'm so happy for them!!!!!!"), so perhaps this was a double proposal situation. As both Megan and Scotty's Instagram accounts are private, it's hard to glean what exactly is going on; we had to wait two hours just to see, via Harrison, whether Megan would be Scotty's blushing bride. One thing is clear: because of the use of Harrison's Instagram account as an intermediary between Megan and Scotty (and the recent tweets on the bride-to-be's Twitter account), we are dealing with at least one, if not two, huge Bachelor fans.
No matter how it went down, things seem to be working out for the couple. Let's just wait for that Good Morning America appearance for the details–though maybe they'll get a whole primetime special on ABC if they're lucky.
Update: The plot thickens.
She said yes! Congrats Megan and Scotty. Well played my boy. I wish you two many years of happiness ahead
