Tyson captioned a gallery of photos of the proposal: ‘Had a pretty eventful weekend. Became the happiest man in the world.’
He added the hashtags: ‘Engaged’, ‘Wedding’, ‘Three Mile Lake to Lake Como’, ‘Love’, ‘Perfect’ and ‘Put a ring on it.’
Tyson’s sister, Amy, also commented: ‘Incredibly happy for you both! Can’t wait to have [Kennie] as my sister-in-law!’
While it is unclear for how long Tyson and Kennie have been dating, she was first pictured on his Instagram account in July 2018.
The couple live in Ontario, where Tyson works as a sous chef at The Bauer Kitchen restaurant in the city of Waterloo.
Tyson has completely turned his life around since winning MKR in 2017.
While on the show, he made no secret of his dissatisfaction being an Uber driver and dreamed of working as a professional chef.
Despite being billed as the villainous ‘Angry, Angry Man’ early in the season, he emerged as a fan favourite by the finale.
After filming wrapped, he landed an apprenticeship as a chef in Brisbane, before relocating to Canada where his culinary career continues to thrive.
