Bachelor Viewers Express Disapproval of Brayden Bowers’ Proposal to Christina Mandrell

It’s a bit of a drama-filled moment.

“Bachelorette” star Brayden Bowers, 25, is facing criticism on social media for proposing to “Bachelor” alum Christina Mandrell, 28, during the first-ever “Golden Wedding.”

Speaking to host Jesse Palmer before the live wedding of “The Golden Bachelor” Gerry Turner, 72, and Theresa Nist, 70, Bowers got down on one knee with a sparkly ring from Neil Lane.

“I just knew that there was something special, and there was something different, and then I got to spend time with you and got to spend time with Blakely … and introduce you to my family,” Bowers said about Mandrell’s daughter.

“For the first time in my life, I feel like I found someone that I can be myself with unapologetically. And I have no doubts that I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” he added.

Mandrell, who was surprised, said yes, and they shared several kisses.

Bowers was on Charity Lawson’s season of “The Bachelorette” last summer and then appeared on “Bachelor in Paradise” without finding love.

After “Paradise,” Mandrell and Bowers started dating but kept it quiet until recently. They announced earlier this week that they are moving in together.

Still, the proposal surprised and annoyed fans.

“Did Brayden just propose at someone else’s wedding?” one fan questioned on social media.

“Brayden proposing at someone else’s wedding?!? Haven’t they been together for like 8 weeks?!?!” another asked.

After a break, Palmer said that Bowers got Turner’s and Nist’s permission to propose on their big day, but some fans thought he was just trying to smooth things over.

“Brayden literally breaking wedding etiquette rule #1 which is don’t propose at someone else’s wedding,” another fan noted.

Others criticized Bowers for trying to steal the spotlight from the wedding.

The ceremony, officiated by “Golden Bachelor” contestant Susan Noles, had “Bachelor” stars like upcoming lead Joey Graziadei, Charity Lawson, and Trista and Ryan Sutter in attendance.
