Viewers were made aware of Wolff's proposal plans during the one-hour special's opening as he flaunted the engagement ring prior to being the first former finalist to be weighed in.
"Tonight, right here, I'm going to be proposing to my lovely Amy Hildreth," Wolff, who was already married when he competed on The Biggest Loser's third season and met Hildreth, gushed to new The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney when he came out from backstage for the special's first reunion weigh-in.
However Hildreth was unaware of her boyfriend's plot until it was her turn to come out from backstage and weigh-in as the special's ninth and final participant.
"Well Amy, your starting weight was 260 pounds. Your current weight is..." said Sweeney to Hildreth as she stood on the show's giant scale. But instead of the former finalist's current weight appearing on the screen, it flashed the message "Amy I Love You."
"What's going on? What's going on?" Hildreth questioned as she waved her hands and jumped as Wolff rose from his seat near the studio audience and began approaching Hildreth. "Whoa... What are you doing?" she asked.
"Well, I wanted to bring you here in-front of our Biggest Loser family to ask you something," said Wolff before Hildreth cut him off. "Stop!" she said, giving him a gentle swat.
"But first, I do have a letter," continued Wolff. "'Amy, you're the most incredible woman I've ever met. Your drive for life, sense of adventure, compassion, loyalty, bravery, strength -- all these things make me want to be with you every day of my life. I came here to lose weight and I found my soul mate. I want to take care of you forever.' And I wrote that to you and tonight I just wanted to tell you that I want to keep that promise forever and so I want to ask you..."
As Wolff assumed the position on bended knee to pop the question, all Hildreth could muster was, "No... I'm so... This is crazy..."
"Will you marry me baby?" he asked.
"Yes... Yes, I love you," answered Hildreth through tears as the two embraced, kissed and shared whispers of, "I love you."

"Come on, let me put this on you," said Wolff as he slipped the engagement ring on her finger. "I'm like, shaking," said Hildreth. "I'm shaking too, I know..." Wolff replied.
