things i did for love (episode guide)
This episode is all about the extraordinary lengths people will go to in the name of love. We’ll meet a woman who risked her life for the man she loves... hear from a guy who pulled off a surprise wedding for his true love... and see some of the most creative and over the top wedding proposals ever.
In fact, we've got a surprise proposal, right here on the show!
But first up, Bobby and Sara. When Bobby was diagnosed with kidney cancer, he never expected Sara would be the one to save his life. Hear their emotional story of love, courage and survival.
Then, how do you surprise the girl of your dreams? Blindfold her, put her in a golf cart and propose to her on The Ricki Lake Show, of course!
That's exactly what one guy did. Jack contacted the show, saying he wanted to do something "epic" to propose to his girlfriend, Elvia. He says he can’t think of a better place to pop the question than right here on The Ricki Lake Show. But how will she respond?
Up Next... Matt created one of the biggest viral “surprise proposal” videos ever—with more than 26 million views. Take a look...
Where are Matt and Ginny now? They share their story and some BIG news!
Then, can you imagine showing up at your own surprise wedding? That's exactly what happened to our next guest. Shawn spent a year planning a surprise wedding for Colleen, convincing her they were headed out to a retirement party. But did he actually pull it off?
Later in the show... We're shifting gears from romantic love to motherly love, and hear a story about a grandmother's sacrifice and her dream to adopt the child she's come to know as her own. You know Ricki can't hear that story without stepping up to help.
And... he's desperate to find the kind of love we witnessed on today's show. Ricki talks to SloFloDude86 (AKA Scott). Has he found his lifelong rap partner?
