Survey says… this couple is getting married. A December 23 Facebook video of a North Carolina couple’s Family Feud-inspired proposal has now gone viral. In it, Joshua Powell asked his then-girlfriend, Kiana Myrick, a series of wedding-related questions inspired by the popular game show before proposing in front of their family.
“We surveyed 100 women,” Powell says in the clip. “Name a day a woman always dreams of.”
“Her wedding day,” Myrick responds.
“Name something a woman wears all white to,” Powell continues. After subsequent rounds of questions, Powell reads the final one: “How would you finish this? ‘Will you marry me?’”
A visibly-confused Myrick turns to Powell and says, “Yes… I will.”
“Might as well make it official, right?” Powell replies as family members shout with glee. After getting on one knee, he says, “I love you with all my heart. For everything we’ve been through, baby, we’ve managed to keep God first. And now eight years later, we’re here. I’m looking for 88 more. Will you marry me?”
Myrick, of course, said yes. In an interview with CBS News affiliate WNCN, the newly-engaged couple opened up about the surprising moment.
“I just put my head down and kind of just focused, it didn’t even dawn on me that he was about to propose,” Myrick explained.
“I just wanted to give her what she deserved,” Powell said.
The couple first met eight years ago in history class during their freshman year of high school. They have plans to marry in 2021 after they graduate college.
