Whipping up a creative marriage proposal is challenging enough as it is, but Rand added “costly” and “team effort” to his master plan. In order to fund his one-of-a-kind marriage proposal to his girlfriend of five years, Geraldine, Rand asked the internet community for donations, and managed to secure an incredible $85,000 to make his dream a reality. Using these funds, he purchased ad space during an episode of Geraldine’s favorite TV show, Veronica Mars. The special episode aired on February 6, 2007, and Rand’s proposal was shown during a commercial break. Geraldine was blown away, and it goes without saying that this instantly became her favorite episode of all time!
