Watch Nathan's Engagement

 
Nathan Bates and Esther Keyes

As most of you know, Nathan Bates proposed to Esther Keyes on May 22nd. The show went on break just one month later, so fans were not able to see the engagement covered on the show. To give you a glimpse at their big moment, which was the culmination of a three-day, romantic adventure, they uploaded a video to YouTube (link below). Nathan and Esther will start their journey as husband and wife in October.
