Survivor’s Zach Enlisted his Fellow Survivor Contestants to Help Him Propose
Zach Korzyrski, the third person to join the Survivor: All Stars Jury Villa, proposed to his partner, Katie, over the weekend with a romantic helicopter ride — and he couldn't have made it happen without his Survivor co-stars.
On Instagram, Zach explained that he gave his partner, Katie, a Bachelor-style date, "complete with mid air proposal over the harbour bridge".
He thanked his fellow contestants, David Genet, Moana Hope and Johnny Eastoe for their help making it happen. Zach's fiancée Katie explained on her Instagram that David organised the helicopter and following dinner at a five-star French restaurant, Johnny kept Katie distracted with a shopping trip, and Moana helped organise a custom-made Ben Simon ring.
Katies noted that Zach had intended to propose at the live season finale of Survivor: All Stars, and he was "gutted" when he found out that the show would not have a live audience because of the rapid spread of COVID-19.
"Zach expressed his disappointment to the other survivor players and they rallied together to create a perfect proposal for us," she explained.
"Zach proposed while we were flying over the Sydney harbour bridge and it was all very romantic. 🥰 the proposal was all caught on camera and we will share it with you all in a couple of days when it comes through ❤️."
She uploaded the heart-warming video on Monday, writing: "Turns out survivor players are just as good at blind siding out of the game as they are in it.😜
"This day couldn't have gone any better & through everyone's help, it turned out amazing. Thank you thank you thank you fo giving me this beautiful moment I will never forget. Forever grateful 🙏❤️💍"
With Snow Patrol's "Just Say Yes" as the score, the video overlaid footage of the proposal, on top of jaw-dropping videos of Sydney, taken from the helicopter.
"Baby, you know I love you, right? I love you more than anything. You know I don't want to do life without you, right?" Zach asked. "What do you reckon? Marry me?" he continued, after pulling out the wedding ring. You'll have to watch to see Katie's equally shocked and thrilled expression.
Johnny shared the moment to his instagram Stories, writing, "What a pleasure it was to play even the most minor part in such a lovely proposal."
Congratulations to Zach and Katie!
