The Finalists:

#1-Rosie and Kevin
They met while working together in Dublin back in high school.  During her senior year in high school she was dumped right before her prom. She had bought tickets, a dress, and planned an after party, but it would seem it would go to waste.  next week she went to work like any other day only to find Kevin waiting with a rose and an offer to take her to the prom. And after that night they never parted ways. The proposal was just as she would have wanted it. Kevin placed the ring in a bag of one of her favorite sweets, gummi bear’s. As they watched a movie, he asked if she wanted some candy (please say yes!) She reached in the bag and found a wonderful surprise. After nearly 7 year’s of dating, they were excited to begin the next phase in their lives.
#2 Jenni and Mike
Having met back in 2010 when she was hired as his banker, there was a mutual attraction there for both of them. They started off as friends and allowed their relationship to blossom. Having both come out of prior relationships and having kids, they began to bond together. Each year the family travels to Hilton Head for vacation, and while Jenni thought it might happen there, the excitement got the better of her and things didn’t happen as she thought it would, leaving her thinking maybe not now. On the last night of their vacation, Mike, along with all the family took a walk down to the Harbour Town Lighthouse for some last minute photos. Meanwhile Jenni’s dad was prepping to catch the ‘shot’ of that moment she’d been waiting for. He’d had the ring in his pocket and threw it to Mike who got down on one knee to a shocked and yet still surprised Jenni. Both Jenni and Mike have lost their mother’s to cancer, so having their family be a part of this special event meant the world to them.
#3 Zacq and Casey
Both sharing a love for the game volleyball, they had first seen one another at a tournament. Between games Casey would watch Zacq as if he owned the place. She found him to be a bit of a ‘jerk’ if you will. But yet something intrigued her greatly about him as she couldn’t take her eye’s off him. She placed herself on the bench to watch a bit more of this talented player, only to realize that in her tunnel vision she’d sat on a breakfast sandwich. Mortified she stood up to clean herself off when Zacq came to get his sandwich….you know, the one she sat on. Within about a week they had their first date. Zacq surprised her with a New Year’s Eve proposal as the ball dropped, exclaiming that he wanted to spend the rest of his days with her.
#4 Amanda and Steven
Having met while both working as servers at a restaurant, there was an instant attraction for each of them. Over time the families could see they were getting serious. Steven did the honorable, yet hard to swallow meeting with Amanda’s father. He shared his adoration for Amanda and that he wanted to spend his life with her and ask for her hand in marriage. Dale of course welcomed him with open arms. It’s hard to ‘give up’ your daughter, but knowing she’d found herself a great man, it wasn’t so hard. Steven took Amanda to Hocking Hill’s to go horseback riding and to walk around the caves and falls on a beautiful autumn day. They found a nice rock overhang that looked out over the vibrant colors where they talked about their time together and he popped the question!
#5 Matt and Melissa
They met back in 7th grade and have pretty much been together ever since. They dated through college and got more serious and found they didn’t want to be apart. Fast forward all these year’s later, Melissa is obsessed with Zumba. She trains other’s in it as well as going to a friend’s class. Matt on the other hand wanted no part in the activity. Swearing he’d never step foot in a class. Very sneaky. It worked to his advantage when planning is proposal story to Melissa. She was at one of her friend’s classes with a packed room of people. Dancing her heart out, in comes Matt behind her dressed in his best Zumba attire..bright neon colors, enough to require sunglasses. Funny enough she was excited for his being there, but kept on dancing away. Little did she know what was about to go down. Rewind a bit, Matt had been taking lessons in the Zumba moves behind her back to make this moment happen. When the song was over, Matt took off the top t-shirt he had on to reveal to Melissa written on his shirt ‘Will You Marry Me’ And the rest is as they say, History!
#6 Aimee and Christopher
They met each other on E-Harmony and got to know each other and found they wanted to be together pretty quickly. After dating about six months, Christopher was ready to propose to Aimee. Catching her off guard while at home she thought he was playing games with her, to which she at first wasn’t amused, but once down on one knee, the heart melted and they were engaged.  They are both college students making their future paths together.


And so that my friends are 2013’s contestants for this year’s contest. Remember it’s all about the votes. I’m just as eager as you to see who will win! So stay tuned for the voting to begin on the 12th and for the big announcement on Valentines Day!!
