First they traveled the world together, and now they’ll be taking a trip down the aisle.
The Amazing Race‘s most-recent winners Kelsey Gerckens and Joey Buttitta were filming a segment for Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family on Tuesday when Buttitta surprised Gerckens by getting down on one knee to propose with a Kirk Kara ring.
The segment won’t air until Wednesday morning, but PEOPLE has the exclusive preview clip of he proposal.
“We’ve run this amazing journey together and I love you. I can’t imagine being with anyone else. Will you marry me?” Buttitta, 26, tells Gerckens, 25, in the clip.
Buttitta’s parents Joe and Terry Buttitta were on hand for the proposal, as were Gerckens’ mom Sheryl and brother Chad Gerckens.

Buttitta and Gerckens’ episode of Home & Family will air Wednesday (at 10 a.m. ET) on Hallmark Channel.
