Ellen Show Proposal Was A Prank

February 8, 2012 by staff 

Ellen Show Proposal Was A Prank, A man named Jacob Waterdale proposed to his girlfriend live on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday, but, in an uncomfortable twist, the proposal was rejected.

Between sobs, his girlfriend, Jodie, cried out “I can’t!” and “I’m sorry!”

But Ellen’s reaction — awkward laughter — made viewers question whether or not the proposal was a prank. After the show aired, Twitter buzzed with the question. reports that the proposal was indeed a hoax, and says “Jacob Waterdale” is actually an “Ellen Show” staffer who helped with a prank last year.

Ellen’s YouTube page offers only this confusing explanation: “[The propsal] didn’t seem to be going too well, but thankfully, it was the 12 Days of Giveaways!” Maybe the sting of rejection was relieved by the knowledge that Ellen would soon be showering her audience with gifts? Perhaps.
