10 Awkward, But Incredibly Funny Marriage Proposal Moments

We heard that March 20th is Proposal Day – A day when couples pop that sweat-inducing question “Will you marry me?” For every successful marriage proposal there are a handful of embarrassingly awkward, but incredibly funny marriage proposals. So in honor of this holiday that nobody has ever heard of, we’ve compiled a list of some of the sweatiest marriage proposal moments caught on video.

1. The Ellen DeGeneres “No”

In front of a live studio audience and 2.74 million viewers at home, this brave young lover put his heart on the line, live on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Unfortunately, the romantic gesture fell on deaf ears and made for an extra sweaty moment for the guy, the girl and the audience that witnessed, first-hand, awkwardness defined.

2. Food Court Proposal Fail

This young Romeo should have known that his odds of success would decrease exponentially when he chose the food court as the setting for his proposal, however, in his defense, we were all surprised to see that the Neil Diamond serenade didn’t assist in sealing the deal.

3. Baseball Game Proposal Gone Bad

Either the Twins were losing big-time or it was the 7th inning stretch but with all eyes on the public proposal, instead of the game, this feisty female fan gives a whole new meaning to America’s Favorite Pastime… by that we mean she passes.

4. Kiss Cam CasaNova

When the kiss cam goes around any arena, it’s always nice to see couples, young and old, showing their love and affection for each other. In this case, however, this young Casanova passes up a kiss and goes for gold – maybe he should have just taken that kiss. Good thing he wore black!

5. Sweaty Success

OK, to take a break from rejection for a moment, in this clip you’ll witness one of the most elaborate SUCCESSFUL wedding proposals ever! As seen on the TV show Mobbed, this groom-to-be goes all out, breaking a major sweat while making his special lady an offer she can’t refuse.

6. Houston, We Don’t Have Liftoff

When you’re a Houston Rockets fan, you don’t have a lot to cheer for so, when a marriage proposal takes place at mid-court during halftime, you’d like to see SOMETHING go well that night. Well, sorry to disappoint, but let’s just say that the players weren’t the only ones who broke a sweat during their brutal loss at home.

7. Mosh Pit Mood Killer

Departing from sports for a second, here’s a brave young lover that takes the initiative to propose to his girl at a rock concert. Unfortunately, the sweaty atmosphere of Ruff ‘n’ Tumble mosh pit must not be the best “mood setter” because his Big Question is a big failure.

8. Shot on Goal… Denied

Ever heard the term, The International Language of Love? Well, in this clip, you don’t necessarily need to understand the language to recognize the noun rejection (r-jkshn). Even in what appears to be chilly weather, this dude must be sweating profusely after that blocked attempt on goal.

9. Smile… You’re Rejected on Camera!

We’ll never know why these men insist upon asking for their woman’s hand (before getting her pre-approval), but yet, they keep providing these awkward gems anyway – in ultra public places no less! That said, following the crooked path of his predecessors above, this guy pops the question on television and hits the same wall. Ouch!

10. “Women Don’t Sweat, I Glisten”

To leave on a happy note, this marriage proposal on national television actually goes over extremely well, however, considering the dancer just finished what appears to be a rigorous routine, she’s showing a pretty healthy “glisten” as her prince charming pops the question.

If you are popping that special question today, do yourself a favor… don’t be the next awkward proposal hit on YouTube. Grab some SweatBlock, be confident and make it count. Good luck!
