Madison Prewett of The Bachelor reveals her proposal story.
Prewett and Troutt got engaged before a year together. They started dating in December last year. In May, the Bachelor star revealed her romance on Instagram, introducing Troutt as “realistic G in town.” The couple’s engagement announcement featured a few photos of the proposal with the caption:
“You were well worth the wait.”
Prewett told People magazine about her proposal day, saying:
“He was supposed to accompany me and my friends to Florida, but he got sick and couldn’t travel. I mistook us for a birthday party for one of our friends. I was told we were going to take birthday photos on the beach, and when I got there, my best friend led me into the bathroom, where my mom and sisters were waiting for me with the dress I wanted to propose.”
Prewett knew in that moment that Troutt would propose to her. The event took place on the beach in Palm Beach, Florida, at The Breakers Hotel.
She went on to say:
“I’ve looked forward to this day all my life.” I’m overjoyed it’s finally here. He is everything I had longed for, longed for and imagined all my life. He was well worth the wait.”
The reality TV personality also said the couple will hold a small engagement party before the wedding preparations begin. Their ideal wedding would be “chic and sophisticated,” she said. When she was featured as a bridesmaid in Peter Weber’s The Bachelor on ABC, Prewett’s name became famous among Bachelor Nation viewers. In the Season 24 conclusion, the main character chose Hannah Ann Sluss over Prewett, though their engagement was short-lived. He later began dating Prewett, but the two divorced last year.
