Many celebrity marriages end up in the shit can, so Bear Grylls’ proposal to his wife was especially poetic. Bear redefined the art of the proposal when he asked his now wife of 14 years Shara Knight (that would make a hot drag name, by the way) to marry him right after he pulled a ring from between his ass cheeks. Milk, milk, lemonade, around the corner chocolate diamonds are made. Bear told the tale of raw romance during an interview on the BBC’s Piers Morgan’s Life Stories (via Uproxx) last week. Bear shared the story with Piers, because Piers pulls a lot of shit out of his ass, so Bear thought he would appreciate it.
Bear said that while skinny dipping in an ocean somewhere, he took Shara’s hand and as her heart skipped a beat, he farted out her engagement ring.
“I pulled out the ring from my butt cheeks. She was standing there going, ‘What are you doing?’ She was in a towel and a massive Atlantic roller came and I went, ‘Will you…’ — and it went — took me up to the beach. I had all the seaweed and I was spinning around. So I tried it again and in this sort of moment of heavy sedation she said yes.”
Beautiful. That’s kind of how John Travolta’s proposal to Kelly Preston went, except he “accidentally” swallowed the ring if you know what I mean.
When Bear presented Shara with that butt diamond, she held her breath and only because she didn’t want to heave while thinking to herself, “I really hope that’s a funny-looking, dull canary diamond and not a piece of corn. I mean, we did have grilled corn on the cob for lunch.” Shara said yes of course, because any man whose ass cheeks can hold onto a ring while he swims in the ocean is the man for her. Jake Gyllenhaal is probably making a sad face right now. Jake kept his hands between Bear’s butt cheeks (butt cheeks are nature’s hand warmer) to stay warm as they filmed that episode in the cold together and he didn’t pull out a ring. He feels so cheated.
And after Shara slipped on that ring (which I’m guessing either came from Fartier, Hairy Shitstain, Tiffany & Poo or Buttgari), she and Bear toasted to their future with crystal flutes full of some funny-smelling bubbly.
