A Marriage Proposal on 'Minute to Win It' (VIDEO)

A Marriage Proposal on 'Minute to Win It'On tonight's 'Minute to Win It' (Tue., 8PM ETon NBC), a young couple won a big cash prize -- and then one of them went after the biggest prize of all. Josh Needham and Lindsay Pond are from the Midwest, and were chasing a special reward: the show's top prize was increased to $3 million for the holidays. But that's not the reward that we're talking about.

First, Lindsay won $50,000 by arranging glasses in order, so that she could play 'Jingle Bells' on them. But then, Josh said that he needed to pause the show for a second. He had decided to propose to his girlfriend in front of a national audience!

But would the proposal be done 'Minute to Win It'-style? Would Josh have to race across the stage while balancing the ring on his nose, or some such? And more importantly, would Lindsay say "Yes"?

The answers are as follows: (1) No, sadly. (We would have liked to see the nose thing.) Josh just got down on one knee and proposed in the traditional fashion. And (2) Yes, Lindsay, said "Yes"! The young couple kissed and embraced as family members in the audience tried to hold back tears.

Okay, well done, Josh and Lindsay! Now, back to work. Maybe you can win $3 million to help finance your honeymoon. (And for the record, though we're glad the proposal on national TV thing worked out for Josh, it can also be sort of ghoulishly entertaining when it doesn't.)

Isn`t this act a bit over done already?

Congrats to the happy couple. I only hope that during the ceremony she slyly puts her LEFT hand out for the ring, since he put the engagement ring on the wrong hand. I'm a newlywed and have never been happier (my second marriage--the first sucked) and wish everyone as much happiness as my husband and I have.

Who cares? I just looked at the clip to check out the decent pear figure his head, when he kneels, is almost obscuring. Mm-mm. Fine vittles thea.

Show is a waste of time minute by minute. Proposal took place AFTER she won the 50 grand. First and last time of watching this show. Yuck.

Obviously he had planned to ask her to marry him well before she won the money. He had a ring in his pocket! The people commenting on here with yawns and negativity...you have got to be jealous. When you're in love, you want the whole world to know! Continued love and joy to the newly engaged!

Did anyone notice that he put the ring on the wrong hand?

Perhaps I'm waaaay old, however, as I viewed the proposal clip I became aware once she said yes and he went in for the clinch, my face was frozen in a great big happy grin. Say what you will, it's one of those moments which no matter how many times we are fortunate enough to have sharred by the happy pair is always a feel good special moment for all. May their future always be as happy...

I do wish them the happiest of life. I am the proverbial wedding singer and nothing except for the birth of a child is more bonding for everyone involved than two people getting married. They seem to be quite happy together and her "yes," was most definite. My words of advice to them, kiss every night before you sleep. Life is so much better then.
