Steven asks Alina to marry him with an original song on a boat ride

When the boat arrives at the waterfalls, Steven unveils the keyboard he had hidden. Steven tells Alina, “I feel so lucky to be here in Turkey with you. And I know that I’ve done a lot of things that have hurt you and made you sad. So I wanted to say I’m sorry, so I wrote you a little song that I want to play for you now.”

Steven then performs his song to Alina. He sings: “I want to see you shine. I want to fill your life. I want you in my life. Before the time runs out and we lose our chance. So I got to ask, ask you on one knee. Ask you eternally. Ask you to marry me.” He gets down on one knee, pulls out the ring, and asks Alina to marry him. She begins to cry and immediately says “yes.”

’90 Day Fiance’ fans react to Steven’s proposal

While Alina loved her proposal, gushing over how romantic and thoughtful it was, many 90 Day Fiancé fans didn’t like it. One Reddit user commented on the video of Steven singing to Alina, “I think if it was anyone but SteVen, we’d all be saying ‘aw, that’s so sweet!’ Yes, the song was terrible, but he at least tried to make the proposal special.” Another fan commented, “He tried 2 or 3 times, but it seemed like he couldn’t even bring himself to say the words’ marry me'”

Many fans thought Steven deserved an “A” for effort. One Reddit user wrote, “I don’t like Steven either, but I have to admit he put in a lot of effort.” Another wrote, “This is the most Steven-esque proposal, I’ll give him that.” One person who didn’t like Steven’s love song commented on the clip, “Alina my support for you is now zero, like Steven’s ability to sing and song write”
