The love of bacon drove thousands to attend Bacon Fest on Saturday in Des Moines, but another love was on display when John Allen and Rachel Dieter took the stage.
With Dieter standing in front of him, Allen professed his love for bacon. But, he wasn't done.
"There are a couple of things I love more," he told Dieter. "'The Walking Dead,' Battlestar Gallactica' and you."
With that, Allen got down on one knee, asking Dieter to marry him. As the crowd cheered, she nodded her head yes.
