Posted: Updated: 05/21/2012 7:57 pm

You might think you've seen some pretty wild marriage proposals (elaborate flashmobs, anyone?), but until you've see a man being set ablaze as part of his pop-the-question plan -- you ain't seen nothing.

Because Josh Madryga, the man who lit himself on fire while popping the question, isn't the only one to incorporate a rush of adrenaline into a proposal, we've compiled a list of the most extreme proposals out there.

Click through the slideshow below to see five outrageous ways that men have popped the question and let us know -- which is the most extreme?

  • Man Proposes, Then Gets Set On Fire

    WARNING: This shocking proposal video is definitely not for the faint of heart. When <a href="http://maddragonstunts.com/" target="_hplink">Toronto-based stuntman</a> Josh Madryga decided it was time to pop the question, he also decided that he was going to be set on fire. In <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/05/man-proposes-then-sets-hi_n_1187724.html" target="_hplink">this video</a>, Madryga proposes to his girlfriend -- but following her heartfelt "Yes!" his friend lights him on fire. Horrifyingly extreme? We think so. But for some reason, his new bride-to-be doesn't seem fazed.

  • Man Proposes On Zero-Gravity Flight

    Thirty-two-year-old New York native Alexander Loucopoulos knew just the way to propose to his girlfriend, space enthusiast Graciela Asturias. He would have gotten down on bended knee, but there was no real way to do it -- since he popped the question on a 90-minute zero-gravity flight aboard a Boeing 727 in May 2007. "I asked if she'd marry me, and then the ring just floated in front of her as we floated in zero gravity," <a href="http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/bizarre&id=5278304" target="_hplink">he told ABC</a>. And she said yes. <em>[Ed. note: The couple pictured here is not Loucopoulos and Asturias].</em>

  • Man Falls Off Building While Proposing To Girlfriend

    Yes, this man actually falls off of a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hya9xxn7CA0" target="_hplink">four story building</a> while popping the question to his girlfriend. Although the stunt was planned, his poor fiancee nearly had a heart attack (and so did we.) The video of the proposal was uploaded to YouTube in July 2011.

  • Man Proposes While Sky Diving

    In <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Weddings/gmas-extreme-love-contest-winner/story?id=13735658#.T7qgdnnLzCF" target="_hplink">May 2011</a>, Kyle Monroe proposed to his adrenaline rush junkie partner-in crime and longtime girlfriend, Liz Navitsky, while the pair were skydiving. As Navitsky was landing from her 15,000 foot fall, she saw a huge tarp on the ground which read "Marry Me, Liz?" Navitsky accepted.

  • Couple Gets Pulled Over, Almost Gets "Arrested" -- And He Proposes

    Want to ask your girlfriend to marry you... and scare her to death at the same time? Try getting her "arrested" (by a police officer who is actually doing this as a favor to you, of course.) In this video, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5-R9nHTegY" target="_hplink">uploaded to YouTube in September 2008</a>, a couple's car gets pulled over by a police patrol car. The unassuming bride-to-be watches from the passenger's seat as her boyfriend goes through an awful ordeal. Just as she exits the car -- with her hands over her head -- he pops the question.
