Today the world of reality entertainment was rocked when the truth behind Dog The Bounty Hunter’s seemingly real proposal to his rumored girlfriend, Moon Angell, was revealed during the full episode of The Dr. Oz Show.
In a teaser clip that was released ahead of the newest episode, it appeared to show Dog emotionally proposing marriage to Moon Angell in a moment that clearly shocked her and Dr. Oz alike. The teaser clip even said “Dog The Bounty Hunter: the new woman in his life is here and he’s surprising everyone.” At that point in the clip, Moon’s head snapped to look at him in utter shock and then the camera quickly switched to Dr. Oz whose jaw was dropped in surprise.

This appearance by Dog on The Dr. Oz Show wasn’t the first – he had previously been on the show after suffering problems related to his heart. Dog had attributed the problems to his “broken heart” after the June 2019 death of his beloved wife Beth Chapman. Her death had shaken up the reality television world and Dog became a new focus for media especially with his brand new WGN America show chronicling the last few months of Beth’s life.
When he first worked with Dr. Oz he discovered that he was actually suffering from a pulmonary embolism and that it was exacerbated by grief and stress from the recent loss of his wife. They worked up a treatment plan for him and he is currently on the mend for that. But, now, his return to the show has sparked many rumors – especially because of the proposal that was aired before the full episode.
The full episode finally aired today, February 3rd, 2020 and according to a People Magazine article on the situation, the whole proposal was fake and meant to be a dramatic way to explain the relationship between Moon Angell and Dog.
As he spoke about his commitment to Beth and how in her last few months with him, she encouraged him to find someone else to love after she was gone, he paused a moment before turning to Moon Angel.
“And I didn’t tell ya I was gonna do this, but this is The Dr. Oz Show…and I think this will put a stop to a lot of this,” Dog said as he stroked his beard and thought about his next few words carefully. Turning to her with tears in his eyes, Dog said convincingly: “Moon Angell, will you marry me?”
As shock washed over her face and Dr. Oz was seen with his jaw wide open, Moon Angell rejected his fake offer of marriage, saying “What? No. We’re friends, Duane. I love you as a friend.”
“I know, I just want everyone else to know, too,” the 67-year-old television bounty hunter said.
So the entirety of his proposal was insincere and just a way to illustrate that he and Moon Angell have been nothing but friends this entire time – no matter what people say about the two of them.
