4 of the Most Memorable Proposal Spots on 'The Bachelor'
1. Who: Whitney Bischoff & Chris Soules, The Bachelor: Season 19
Where: Soules's Barn in Arlington, Iowa
No fancy resorts for Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules! The fourth-generation corn farmer and Iowa native proposed in a spot that was most meaningful to him—his barn in Arlington, Iowa! Since their proposal happened during winter, Soules had to jazz the place up a bit by adding lighting, greenery and decorative candles, but the overall effect was pretty romantic. (Unfortunately, Bischoff and Soules broke off their engagement almost seven months later.)
2. Who: Catherine Giudici & Sean Lowe, The Bachelor: Season 17
Where: Pa Sak Tong Villa in Ban Mae Kon, Thailand
For Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe's proposal, it was romance all the way. Lowe popped the question at one of the ultra-luxurious villas at Pa Sak Tong in Thailand. The private property is nestled on 29 acres of stunning gardens, rice fields and ponds, setting the tone for an unforgettable engagement. The couple married in 2014 and are expecting their first child this year!
3. Who: Courtney Robertson & Ben Flajnik, The Bachelor: Season 16
Where: Grand Hotel Zermatterhof in Zermatt, Switzerland
Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik broke the popular warm destination proposal trend by getting engaged atop a snowy mountain in Switzerland. The European engagement likely occurred on the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof's property, which is a true secluded alpine getaway, complete with skiing, suites with fireplaces and a swanky spa. (Sadly, the couple split soon after their engagement.)
