Radio hosts in disbelief after woman’s ‘uncomfortable’ on-air proposal went horribly wrong

Radio hosts in disbelief after woman’s ‘uncomfortable’ on-air proposal went horribly wrong

It was meant to be a sweet moment but went viral for the wrong reasons

Australian radio hosts were left in disbelief after a woman's proposal live on-air went horribly wrong.

February 29 - a day that comes around every four years with a leap year - is also known as Bachelor's Day.

The day is also known as Ladies’ Privilege, an Irish tradition where women are 'allowed' to propose to men.

So, a lot of women probably planned to propose to their other halves yesterday, including Carly on Melbourne's most popular breakfast show, 101.9 The Fox’s Fifi, Fev and Nick.

Carly decided it would be a good idea to propose to her boyfriend Brad live on the show.

While she was certainly nervous, the Aussie had a lot of optimism for the big proposal.

"It’s been the most incredible five years of my life with you," Carly began the call.

"Every morning, I wake up as the luckiest girl alive. You make me feel like nothing else I’ve ever felt before.

“You are my north, my south, my east, my west, my working week and my Sunday rest. I have loved growing with you and learning about you. I love the person you are, and the person I am is totally because of you. I can’t wait to do this forever … will you marry me?”

It was meant to be a sweet moment...

At this point, the radio hosts' hearts were truly warmed - but this phone call was about to go viral for all the wrong reasons.




After a brief pause, Brad initially thought his girlfriend was joking. However, he quickly realized the proposal was real, and ultimately turned her down.

"“You’re joking … is this live on-air?” he asked. “You’re joking. Obviously … like … um … (pauses) . I dunno, like … I’m not trying to put you on the spot, but I’m just pretty … I don’t know if this is the sort of thing you do on-air. It’s a big deal and I’m a pretty traditional kind of guy as you know."

Brad added: "I don’t want to seem like I’m not grateful or anything … you know I love you, babe. I dunno, I’m feeling pretty shocked right now."

The reaction says it all.

One of the radio hosts did note that 29 February marks Ladies's Privilege, but Brad wasn't going to change his mind.

As the segment came to a close, a shocked Fev said: "That could be the most uncomfortable I’ve ever felt on radio."

You can say that again.

However, this story does have a happy ending after all as the radio hosts provided an update on the situation.

Remarkably, Brad himself proposed to Carly at dinner that very evening.

Well saved, eh?
