19 Kids and Counting: See Ben’s Scavenger Hunt Proposal to Jessa (VIDEO)

When 19 Kids and Counting star Jessa Duggar got engaged to long-time boyfriend Ben Seewald a week ago, obstetrician’s everywhere high-fived each other for the extra job security we all know the union will bring to baby docs across the land — or at least in Arkansas.

But the pairing will do more than up the per capita birth rate of the entire U.S. — it will also probably light a fire under the behinds of every man planning to propose to his sweetheart. Ben didn’t just hide the ring in a box of Cracker Jacks and hand it to Jessa at the local AAA baseball game — he pulled out all the stops with a scavenger hunt proposal.

Ben made it one to remember by planning out a proposal day — not just a proposal dinner, boys, a whole day — which included a complex scavenger hunt complete with a plane ride with her bro (romantic, right?) and a mini-golf obstacle course. After a day of hide-and-go-seek, the 21-year-old daughter of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, found Ben waiting with a ring at Thorncrown Chapel. Cue happy tears.

Nothing like making a girl work for it, Ben! Incidentally, she’s also working for her first kiss, which will happen on their wedding day. Add the 20+ kids we can expect in her future, and it sounds like Jessa’s got a whole lifetime of happily wedded work ahead of her. Yay! Congrats guys!
