Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor ended last season with a breakup and began with a proposal. The moment was beautiful and special to the “Vanderpump Rules” couple but the place the 39-year-old bartender chose to pop the question garnered loads of criticism from an unimpressed home audience.
Jax got down on one knee at Neptune’s Net — a casual seafood restaurant by Malibu waters.
Fans immediately took to social media to share their disappointment.
“I just think I saw biggest train wreck in human history.”
“Jax really has a top 5 worst proposal of all time lmfao”
“I can’t believe they hyped the proposal all episode just for Jax to awkwardly bring her the ring on a food tray at a random seafood restaurant”
It’s obvious that taking your soon-to-be fiance to a casual dining place would make her unsuspecting of what was about to go down, but Taylor had another excellent reason for his proposal location.
“My father, when he did come [to California], it was his favorite place. So, I lost my father last year, and it was important for me to take her there and tell her that I wanted to spend the rest of my life together at my dad’s favorite place.”
Additionally, Jax used the money that his father left him to help afford the $70,000 wedding ring.
He credits his dad’s passing for helping him change into a better person and reunite with Brittany after their split.
“I was just like, ‘What would my dad want me to do?’ And I’m like, I’m not going to lose my best friend. I’m not going to lose the girl that I’m supposed to be with for the rest of my life, I’m not gonna let that happen. So, we’re going to work through this and get through it.”
What do you think about Jax’s proposal? Is your opinion different now that you know that it was done at a sentimental location?
