Wil Wheaton Is An Adorable Ninny

By Dustin Rowles | Miscellaneous | November 8, 2012 | Comments ()


I saw this image over on Neatorama, and I couldn't resist. It comes from a fan photo for Star Trek: The Next Generation, and in it, two people walked in, and the man stood in front of his soon-to-be-fiance and said:

"I really love Star Trek, but I love [her name] even more."

He got down on one knee, and proposed to her.


Here's the before picture, which contains Levar Burton's splendid look of eye-rolling indifference, and Wheaton's, "Uh, dude: Here? What are you doing?"

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Marina looks like she's been hitting the sauce.

  • e jerry powell

    Okay, you are talking about the brunette in the back row and not the redhead in the front, right?

    Gates McFadden refuses dermal filler! I think I'm a little bit proud.

  • Jezzer

    He should have proposed to Patrick Stewart. Then he could have silky man-voice all day long.

    Or a restraining order.

  • e jerry powell

    Why not both?

  • e jerry powell

    LeVar is such a bitch. In a good way.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Look at the look of disgust on Spiner's face.

  • BlackRabbit

    For some reason I imagine him saying "Yay!" in a really sarcastic voice in that photo.

  • BendinIntheWind

    After seeing the first photo and not knowing anything about Wil Wheaton's personal life, I thought this article was going to be "Actor Wil Wheaton gets engaged to his long-time boyfriend in front of Star Trek castmates". He just looks SO excited, and from this angle it looks like the dude is kneeling toward him. Adorable.

    This wasn't the only proposal at this Con. I was waiting in line with my friend for a photo op with Patrick Stewart (hotter in person) and the couple in front of us went forward for their turn. The girl walked to the far side of Sir Stewart, and the boy suddenly got down on one knee, with Sir Stewart between and behind them, and the boy pulled out a ring and proposed. The photographer snapped a picture, and Sir Stewart asked, "Is this real?" and the boy said "Yes!" and of course the girl said "Yes!" and although I did not know them I squeeeed like a Bieber fan.

    As they walked out in tears and my friend and I walked up to get our picture taken with Sir Stewart, I said, "Well, we can't top that, we're not getting married." And Sir Stewart said, "Well, I certainly can't top it either." Then I stood there in awe realizing I had just had a conversation (a statement and reply is a conversation right!?) with SIR PATRICK STEWART that didn't involve me babbling like a fangirl, got my picture taken and left.

    " Patrick Stewart (hotter in person)"

    HOW is this even POSSIBLE?! You have blown my MIND, madam. Rocked me to my CORE! If you try to tell me his voice is also more resonant and his pate is shinier I will FAINT. I am NOT READY FOR THAT JELLY.

    Someone get me my inhaler.

  • janetfaust

    Grab that inhaler, cause his voice is more resonant! When I got his autograph the next day I was wearing a Dr. Who shirt from TeeFury. The handler sitting next to him said, "I love your shirt!" and Patrick Stewart said, "Doctor Whooooo" in a deep voice, drawing out the "O" sound, making me weak in the knees.

  • Sandrine

    You said it. I met him once at a convention and he was charming, handsome and very kind. I fell in love right there and then.

  • Jerce

    I don't recognize that man in the upper lef--HOLY FUCK IS THAT JONATHAN FRAKES?!

  • e jerry powell

    I can't tell if he's losing or gaining. He and his wife are so back-and-forth with that whole thing.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I didn't recognize Dorn until Admin mentioned him.

  • Rocabarra

    Levar Burton's face did not change throughout the entire event. Unimpressed Geordi is unimpressed.

  • Cnute

    Wil Wheaton is doing the Stefan from SNL face.

  • FrayedMachine

    Oh my goodness. Wheaton's response is tres adorable! It almost seems like he's the one who's being proposed to.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Being right next to your friends when they get engaged just completely shuts your brain down. I've made a fool of myself doing this exact thing not once, but twice. Didn't help that one was at a football game where my excited crying stupid face was immediately up on the jumbotron.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Michael Dorn is about to Bat'leth a bitch.

  • BWeaves

    I like Patrick Stewart's face palm the best.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    PStews (I'm trying to make it fetch) owns the facepalm. I think people owe him royalties or something when they use it.
