Tourist Travels With Diamond Ring

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’re supposed to pack light when traveling, but one man lugged a big ol’ rock in his fanny pack.

Garrett Paul and Jessica Stout – an off-again/on-again couple that’s been dating for the past seven years – were eliminated from The Amazing Race this past Sunday (Sep. 27).

The trip made the duo realize they’re ultimately meant to be, and Paul proposed to Stout right after their ousting.

He was secretly carrying the engagement ring the entire first leg of the race through Tokyo and Vietnam.

Watching the show back, Stout can’t believe her beautiful bling was “stuffed in his fanny pack,” as they ran through crowds in the 90-degree Tokyo heat.

Luckily, the rock made it out unscathed, and the proposal was a total surprise as planned.

The happy couple, who’ve been traveling buddies for years, plan to get hitched next year in – what else? – a destination wedding.

The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
