While Trebek took a moment to introduce the contestants and allow them to introduce themselves, he gave Michael Pascuzzi a chance to ask a question of his own. The contestant assured him that didn't matter because he had something to fill the time and proceeded to propose his girlfriend in the crowd.
Shafer was smiling and holding back tears when Pascuzzi again asked, "Will you marry me?"
"Yes, of course", Shafer responded with a tearful smile.More news: Fans call 'Fantastic Beast' casting of Claudia Kim as Nagini problematic
"I just wanted to say one quick thing, and ask Maria Shafer, right there, if she would make me a victor today and marry me", Pascuzzi said.
When all was said and done, Trebek managed to sneak in a quick joke. "I was about to say, 'We'll have the answer to that question right after this commercial break'".
He turned to his girlfriend and asked (not in Jeopardy format), "Will you marry me?" She didn't respond to Pascuzzi in the form of a question.More news: U.S. takes 3-1 lead after first session of Ryder Cup
