Twitch streamer ‘jenwaaa’ attempted to “propose” to her boyfriend in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but the potentially magical moment ended in a less-than-romantic conclusion.
The streamer explained that a viewer gave her a ring in the game, which she decided to use to surprise her boyfriend, fellow streamer ‘enigma’, when he walked into the room during a broadcast.
Jenwaaa’s plan was very simple: show off her romantic zen garden to her boyfriend and present him with the ring.
“I mean, just wow,” she said when revealing her master plan. “You know it’s a beautiful ring. It’s gorgeous.”
A few moments later, it finally came time for the moment the streamer had planned. After getting her boyfriend’s attention, she called him over to her setup to show him something.
At first, he was impressed with the sunset in the game and thought she just wanted to showcase New Horizons’ graphics, but that wasn’t it, at all.
“You ready?” she asked.
“Yes, hurry up,” he responded, apparently eager to get back to his own activities.
“I’ve got something special to show you,” she explained, leading him to the zen garden. Then, she shocked him by opening up the ring box, exposing the diamond she was given by a fan.
“Okay, dude,” he laughed, doing a 180 and bolting out of the room. “Okay!”
While the streamer looked sad and appeared to shut her stream off shortly thereafter, she told Dexerto that it was a bit of an inside joke between her viewers and her boyfriend.
As it turns out, the streamer always jokes about proposing to her boyfriend, so after one of her viewers gave her a ring, she decided it would be a perfect joke.
That said, if her boyfriend had of said ‘yes,’ it would have been another story.
“I would have been like ‘Cool, let’s do it. Let’s talk about that,’” she laughed.
Although the two didn’t end up tying the knot this time, it would certainly make for a cool moment if streamer and her boyfriend do eventually decide to get married during a live broadcast.
