It must feel good to receive the attention and praise from Donald Trump that winning his reality show provides.

But for former Apprentice victor, Bill Rancic, none of that can equal the love of a beautiful woman. Especially when she’s now your fiancee.

The up-and-coming millionaire popped the question to E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi Friday night – and she said yes.

“I thought I was dreaming,” DePandi said to People magazine. “It was the most amazing moment of my entire life. Not only is Bill the love of my life, but he’s also my best friend. I couldn’t believe my dream guy was asking me to marry him!”

In a scene more worthy of a final episode of The Bachelor, Rancic sent a limo to pick DePandi up at the airport when she arrived in Chicago from L.A. Friday night. Instead of taking her to his apartment, the limo dropped her off at a nearby helipad.

He asked for her hand in marriage on a flight over Chicago.

When they got back to Rancic’s apartment, DePandi was welcomed with rose petals scattered everywhere and chocolate cake. Lindsay Lohan was also set to pole dance for the couple. Just kidding.

DePandi and Rancic first met when DePandi interviewed the winner of the first season of Donald Trump’s reality series more than two years ago. Upon hearing that, Aaron Carter said:

“Whoa, what took so long?”
