Watch Silicon Valley's T.J. Miller Hilariously Recount His Botched Proposal


Sure, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell held the "World's Worst Wedding," but from the sounds of it, T.J. Miller had the world's worst proposal.

During an appearance on Conan last night, the Silicon Valley star breached the topic of marriage when he couldn't pronounce the word "fiancé," calling his betrothed, Kate Gorney, his "wife" because he cannot say the word "fiancé" out loud. "Fia-che" and "fian-kay" are versions of the word that came up, but no smooth-sailing "fiancé."

Then, he told Conan that his proposal "hurt so much" — literally. He explained that he popped the question at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, "because she is a work of art," he punnily explained. He decided the special spot would be underneath a rock installation.

"What they don't tell you," he said, "is that when you get down on your knee to propose, just don't do it so quickly. I went down fast, and it really hurt my knee."

"I went down fast," he continued, "and I went down hard, and it hurt so much...You have to hide that because it's a really romantic moment."

"I was literally in a rock and a hard place," he quipped, hilariously recounting the flupped proposal to the late night host.

"But I got through it, and she said yes, which was really exciting," he said, concluding, "Well, she didn't say yes, she said, 'Well, OK.' But we're really, really excited."

You need to watch the hilarious interview above. And, if his proposal is any indication, their wedding is going to be a riot!
