Erin and Chad's Engagement

"I was so scared and excited at the same time, but then he asked if I would marry him."
-Erin (Bates) Paine

With the recent engagement of Tori Bates and Bobby Smith, it's the perfect time to look back at past Bates proposals. In the video below, Chad Paine gets down on one knee and asks Erin Bates to marry him.

Erin and Chad knew each other as friends for multiple years, began courting in January 2013, were engaged in August 2013, and tied the knot on November 2, 2013.

  1. Why can I never see a picture on the Bates videos???

    1. Hi Kelly,

      I'm not sure I understand your question? :)


    2. Does she mean that she only sees a black box for the video?

    3. The same things happens for me. The video starts and then it "blacks out" and you can hear it but you can't see anything....

    4. That's what happens to me too half of the time! Or rather three-quarters of the time. So annoying!

    5. This used to happen to me as well. It started working again when I turned off my ad blocker.

  2. Thanks for posting the memory of Chad and Erin. They are just adorable and classy. Love them.
