According to People magazine, Frankie Grande, the 38-year-old Broadway star and former Big Brother contestant surprised the 28-year-old actor Hale Leon, 28 with an elaborate proposal Tuesday night at Dreamscape, an immersive virtual reality adventure venue in Los Angeles.
Dreamscape was the site of one of the couple's memorable first dates and The Rainbowthon host worked closely with the company to create a custom ending to a VR experience, which featured a "Will you marry me?" message and intergalactic virtual fireworks.
Dreamscape offers a variety of immersive virtual reality experiences including a Dreamworks Dragons flight academy and an alien zoo.
The couple met in 2019 at a gay line dancing bar in Los Angeles (which was shuttered earlier this year). "I randomly ended up going to this bar Oil Can Harry's in the Valley and I saw Hale he was dancing on the stage," Grande told People early in their relationship. "He was performing for everybody. He loves to go to Oil Can Harry's he knew all the dances, I was blown away."
"It was definitely love at first dance," he added. "I chased him down to meet him afterwards but he disappeared to fix his hair."
That was not long after Grande reportedly broke up the throuple he was a part of:
Hale and Grande recently celebrated their two-year anniversary with a series of sweet posts on social media and a trip to Palm Springs.
