For live streamers, allowing viewers a glimpse into your personal life is often necessary, but proposing to your significant other is going farther than most.
Twich streamer Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell did just that on a recent broadcast, during an IRL stream getting down on one knee and popping the question to his girlfriend as thousands of viewers watched on.
It was an emotional moment, and thankfully one that ended well as his now fiancé accepted his offer, even audibly saying ‘yes’ into the microphone for the stream to hear.
What made the moment even better was Bajo’s heartfelt speech leading up to the the question, truly pouring his heart out and taking a major risk with so many onlookers.
As his girlfriend stands, no doubt overwhelmed by the moment, Bajo even says “with this many people watching – you can’t back out!”, although he did have a back up plan.
“You’ve been the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I’m not kidding. I’ve been around the block a few times and I think it’s about time I pulled over.
With all these people watching, you can’t back out, mate. Will you marry me? I’ve prepared a scene if you say no, so it’s fine.”
Fortunately, she said yes and avoided any embarrassment for Bajo. The clip quickly went viral after being posted to Reddit and Social Media, as fans applaud the bravery it took to pull this off.
Thank you for letting us share this mega life moment with you all tonight. It means a LOT to me that we could do this comfortably amongst you all and it not feel weird, but instead a pure, joyous celebration. I just wish I’d remembered to put on the sausage hat.

Although it isn’t the first time a streamer has proposed on stream, as another couple did the same in January of 2018, that time with over 12,000 viewers watching live.
