Félicitations! The Real World: Las VegasTrishelle Cannatella got engaged to her boyfriend, John Hensz, in New Orleans’ French Quarter on Sunday, July 31, and finally, we have a close-up shot of her massive diamond engagement ring.

Hensz proposed to Cannatella, 36, with an eye-popping stunner that boasts a square-shaped center stone, surrounded by a diamond halo and accented with pave diamonds along the band.

As Cannatella told Us Weekly, the whole proposal — which included a parade in the middle of New Orleans — was a surprise. “We went to brunch in the French Quarter with my sister and then we randomly — or so I thought — saw one of my best friends, Kristin, with more of our friends by a band. I thought they were just hanging out,” Cannatella, who also competed on MTV’s The Challenge, told Us. Hensz, who is a fighter pilot in the National Guard and a pilot for Delta, took the TV personality from bar to bar, finding more friends along the way, until she realized they were being trailed by a brass band. Finally, they arrived at the city’s famed Jackson Square, where her father was waiting.

“He got down on one knee and proposed in front of the church — and also a very drunk gentleman passed out in the grass. It was magical!” she said. “Then we all went to the 21st Amendment Bar for an engagement party, where they made us a cocktail called ‘She Said Yes!’ It was seriously the best day of my life.”

Cannatella added, “I couldn’t believe he did all of that for me. My dream was to have a second line. It’s a New Orleans tradition. I’m still smiling! I don’t know how our wedding will top our engagement.”
