Taylor Swift: Aussie TV couple get engaged during Eras concert

The couple who met on Better Date Than Never got engaged during 'Love Story'.

A couple who met on dating show Better Date Than Never have taken their relationship to the next level after getting engaged at a Taylor Swift concert during her Eras show in Melbourne.

Zach, 23, got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Olivia, 24, during Taylor's smash hit 'Love Story' timing the proposal to the lyrics, 'He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring,' which has become a huge social media trend amongst Swifties.

Zach and Olivia met on the ABC reality dating show in 2022, where they bonded over their love for Taylor Swift's music.

Better Date Than Never was a six-part docuseries that followed a diverse group of single people as they stepped into the dating world, for the very first time. Each participant had a unique story for having a later start to their dating lives and with a little help from the show they were matched with a potential love interest.

Olivia, who joyfully accepted the proposal, told that she had "no idea" her boyfriend planned the memorable event.

"The concert started, and we were dancing and having a good time, and then it was getting to 'Love Story' and Zach’s family members pushed back some chairs," she relayed. "I thought they were making us a dance floor. I had a dance, a bit of a boogie, and I turned back around and he was on his knee proposing to me.

"It was honestly really, really special."
