    This Guy Faked "The Amazing Race" To Propose To His Girlfriend Under The Northern Lights

    Spoiler alert: She said yes.

    Justin knew he wanted to propose to his girlfriend Diana under Iceland's Northern Lights 6 months after meeting her. Seven years later, he planned an epic "Amazing Race" adventure, spanning 6 states, 2 countries, and over 5,000 miles to get her there.

    He even hired a camera guy and accomplices in 2 different states to convince her that they were competing in a new online version of their favorite show.

    First, Diana was surprised at work in Philadelphia by a hired cameraman, a contract, and her first clue!

    She was given a rental car (very "Amazing Race") and followed her clue to a museum in Delaware, where she was directed to the Reading Terminal to find her next clue "attached to something that should be very familiar..."
