A Very Cavallari engagement.

On tonight's season 3 finale, Kristin Cavallari's BFF Justin Anderson finally got down on one knee and asked his love, Austin "Scoot" Rhodes, to marry him. While this was something the Scream Queens actor wanted for some time, Justin revealed to E! News that his beau didn't see the proposal coming.

In order to make it the perfect proposal, Justin had Scoot's twin brother Aaron Rhodes and his own sister Malia Anderson waiting in the garage as a second surprise. Of course, best friends Kristin and Jay Cutler were there as well.

"Scoot wanted a quiet engagement. So, that's what I went with: cooked him his favorite meal and we ate dinner at our favorite cozy place in the house by the fire in Nashville," the celebrity hair colorist shared in an exclusive statement to E! News. "I know how much it meant to Scoot that his twin brother was there, so I had Aaron and my sister Malia in the garage with Kristin and Jay watching from behind the cameras. He was completely shocked and had no idea it was coming."

After cooking Scoot a delicious salmon dinner and pouring him a glass of wine, the duo made their way over to the couch, with Justin feeling like a "ball of nerves." Of course, as was documented on tonight's episode, the surprise proposal was almost ruined by the gang hiding in the garage.

"So, here I am about to propose to Scoot and all I can hear is people like, clunking around in the garage and I can't take my focus off that," Justin stated to the Very Cavallari cameras. "On top of it, I want to cry my eyes out. It's like, 'Oh lord! Is someone gonna mess this up?'"

Thankfully, Justin was able to power through the distractions and have a touching heart-to-heart with Scoot.

"Scoot, you know how much I love love and that's all that I think about. And I've always just wanted to be with one person for the rest of my life and I never thought that I'd find a love like this," Justin declared to Scoot. "You make me so happy, I can't stop thinking about how happy I want to make you. I don't want to spend one day without you and I promise you that I'm gonna spend the rest of my life trying to give you everything that you need. I just want to be with you forever."

At this moment, Justin got down on one knee and asked "the man of [his] dreams" to marry him. And, of course, Scoot said yes!
