Why ask a magic mirror who the fairest is when you can just make a pass at every royal maiden in the land?

That's the logic that propelled Blaine Gibson during a recent trip to Disney World. The Austin, Texas, man decided that typical tourist photos wouldn't cut it, so he skipped out to Walmart, bought a cheap ring, and tweeted photos of himself proposing to every Disney Princess he could find.

The result? Some princess expressions of surprise, retweets aplenty and a little bit of Internet infamy.

In order, that's Ariel, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Tinkerbell and ... Gaston. The winner?

Yep, it was Tink – even if she's not actually a Disney princess, who are we to stand in the way of love?

Gibson, a contributor to the Roosterteeth comedy website, explained in a video podcast that he was still holding out hope to become the Prince Eric to Disney World's Ariel actress. (Warning: The podcast has some NSFW language.)

"Man, Ariel was hot. She was really cool. My hope is that when I tweeted [the photo] ... I would hear back," Gibson said. "Sure enough, I found a guy who tweeted me. He said he went to high school with Cinderella ... And I had a Disney employee who was a Roosterteeth fan who said that she found Ariel and was going to give Ariel my Twitter handle."

Blaine, we're rooting for a happily ever after for you and your future princess, whomever she may be.
