‘DWTS’ Pro Sasha Farber Proposes to Emma Slater Live, Requisite Confetti Falls
It wasn't Laurie Hernandez, Marilu Henner or any other Dancing With The Stars Season 23 celebrities who stole the show on last night's (October 4) episode — it was two of the pro dancers, themselves.
Toward the top of the results show, which sent music icons Vanilla Ice and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds packing, host Tom Bergeron struck up a conversation with Sasha Farber and Emma Slater. The former, who's paired with reality TV star Terra Jolé, had big plans for the latter, paired with the already eliminated Ricky Perry. As to not waste a single moment of the broadcast, Bergeron immediately got the ball rolling after Farber and Slater performed a routine together.
"First of all, you guys have great chemistry," Bergeron said. "And Sasha, I've always thought you had the potential to actually host so I'm going to give the show over to you."
Then, Farber took a big breath and began. Slater, who seemed to be privy to the stunt, began to cry.
"Baby, I've wanted to do this for such a long time. I love you so, so much," he said to Slater before dropping down to his knee and pulling a ring out of his back pocket. "Will you marry me?"
Then, the confetti fell, the Bruno Mars played and a new engagement was officially set into motion.
And some friends close to the DWTS family — judge Carrie Ann Inaba and Farber's former partner Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi — both tweeted their adoration of the couple.
