Jeopardy! contestant shocked viewers on Thursday when he proposed to his girlfriend on the show. Michael Pascuzzi, a store manager from Florida, chose to forgo a traditional introduction and used his time to pop the question instead.

“I just wanted to say one quick thing, and ask Maria Shafer, right there, if she would make me a winner today and marry me,” he declared. “Will you marry me?”

A tearful Shafer quickly replied, “Yes of course!”

Host Alex Trebek then joked, “Maria, you responded too quickly. I was about to say we’ll have the answer to that question right after this commercial break.”

Shafer then corrected herself and quipped, “That would be, what is yes?”
